BOA hires for finance jobs in San Antonio

Sunday, July 24th, 2011

Bank of America said this week it is hiring at various locations including for finance jobs in San Antonio.

As part of its plan to hire over 1,000 new small business bankers across the nation, Bank of America today announced that it will hire nearly 100 small business bankers in Texas – including Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio – by the end of first quarter 2012. The Dallas-Fort Worth region was among the first three markets in the country to begin hiring Bank of America small business bankers, and more than 75 bankers have already been hired throughout the state.

San Antonio jobs are increasing with this exciting announcement.

Through a relationship with a Bank of America small business banker, customers will have convenient access to local small business expertise and a dedicated resource who knows their business. Small business bankers will consult with small business owners at their place of business and assess their companies’ deposit, credit and cash management needs.

“Bank of America is changing the way we do business with small business owners so we can more acutely address the complex financial issues they face each day,” said Anna Colton, small business banker national sales executive for Bank of America. “Our small business customers want a banking relationship that meets them where they are, providing solutions that are tailored for their business. This hiring effort addresses their needs head on by bringing the banking experience to our small business customers’ place of business and by providing them with solutions to manage their money more efficiently and effectively.” (more…)

Are San Antonio green jobs ripe for the taking?

Monday, July 18th, 2011

A new estimate by One Block off the Grid shows that San Antonio green jobs could be a hotbed for job seekers.

Approximately 107,000 U.S. state and local level jobs could be created within a short period of time if solar energy policies were established or improved in the U.S. The figure represents six to ten percent of total U.S. job creation over the last two years.

Among the states the report identifies as having the greatest potential for solar job creation were: Texas, Florida, Virginia, Missouri, Georgia, Washington, Tennessee, South Carolina, Louisiana, and Michigan.

Whether the jobs are entry-level San Antonio jobs or otherwise was not specified.

The report also estimates that roughly 245,000 jobs could be created over a longer period if U.S. states were to establish a policy known as a feed-in tariff, which pays above-market rates to homeowners for the solar energy they feed back into the grid. This policy has been strongly linked to high rates of residential solar adoption in Germany, where there is one solar job for approximately every 1,000 people. By comparison, the report estimates there is currently one solar job for every 4,000 people in the United States. (more…)
