ABA Partners with IBA and 32 State Bankers Associations to Strengthen Nationwide Online Banking Career Center


The American Bankers Association has teamed with the Illinois Bankers Association and 32 other state bankers associations to deliver an enhanced BankTalentHQ.com, an innovative banking career hub for banks looking to hire and job seekers across the country. The online career center allows users to search for and post available positions across the country, and also offers a wide array of resources for anyone looking to join the industry or advance their banking career including ABA training, professional certifications, and guidance on pursuing a career in banking.

“With today's tight job market, this is the perfect moment to partner with our state association alliance colleagues to offer this premier banking job site," said ABA President and CEO Rob Nichols. “BankTalentHQ provides a nationwide network that really showcases the incredible opportunities in banking today. Today's modern bank needs talented and dedicated technology, marketing, and HR leaders as well as traditional finance and risk management professionals. We want people from all backgrounds and all corners of the country to find their future in banking at BankTalentHQ.com." 

BankTalentHQ.com was originally developed by IBA’s Illinois Bankers Business Services, Inc. with the goal of informing job seekers of the variety of careers available across the industry and connecting them with bank employers within Illinois. Now the site has been enhanced with content from ABA and 32 other state bankers associations to include the nationwide job board and a wide range of content showcasing banking as a career.

 “Anyone who wants to make a difference in their community should visit BankTalentHQ.com,” said IBA President and CEO Randy Hultgren. “We want people who never considered banking as a career, transitioning members of the military, and people just looking for a change to come to the website and see all of the opportunities our industry offers right now. We’re excited to see this website match great talent with great jobs at banks of all sizes.”
