The job market continues to burn millions of Americans, even on once flush Wall Street. But fear not, there’s one finance job that pays well, is rewarding and desperately needs young talent.

A huge opportunity looms for the young and enterprising to score, a long-lasting, impactful career. Finance degree not required.

In the news:

“Jan Koum picked a meaningful spot to sign the $19 billion deal to sell his company WhatsApp to Facebook earlier today. Koum, cofounder Brian Acton and venture capitalist Jim Goetz of Sequoia drove a few blocks from WhatsApp’s discreet headquarters in Mountain View to a disused white building across the railroad tracks, the former North County Social Services office where Koum, 37, once stood in line to collect food stamps. That’s where the three of them inked the agreement to sell their messaging phenom –which brought in a miniscule $20 million in revenue last year — to the world’s largest social network” — Parmy Olson.
