Employment for financial examiners will grow more slowly than the average for all occupations through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Opportunities for examiners are expected to be best in the finance and insurance industries. The recent financial crisis has prompted government agencies at the state and federal levels to more closely monitor the activities of banks, and the federal and state governments to implement new financial regulations. As a result, more examiners will be needed. Employment growth may be offset, however, if the trend toward bank mergers and closings continues.
