Wall Street Journal Launches Fins.com, A Financial Jobs Website

Posted Jul 14, 2009

After the recent Wall Street meltdown, you would figure that less people would be interested in financial jobs but now the economy is recovering.  The Wall Street Journal plans to capitalize on the economic recovery by launching a financial career website called Fins.com.

Dow Jones Ventures General Manager and former Chief Revenue Officer of Jobster Kevin Hatfield is the General Manager of Fins.  Fins is the first launch to come out of Dow Jones Ventures.  Ann Sarnoff is leading the project.  Before Fins, Dow Jones Ventures and IAC partnered on a website called FiLife which has not gained much success.

One of the biggest problems with Fins right off the bad is that there are too many job seeking website alternatives out there as of right now.  If I were looking for a finance job, I’d first check TheLadders, Monster, and CareerBuilder.
