ACAMS New York hosted its first ever Job Fair on November 29, 2011. The goal of the job fair was to match up the talented members of the ACAMS community with open AML positions in the New York financial services job market. The event was held at the Hilton Times Square on 41st Street and was open to the public. The illustrious group of exhibitors included: Citi, Crowe Horwath, Capital One, TD Bank, Safe Banking Systems, American Express, Infinity Consulting Solutions, Ernst & Young, HSBC and PwC. The event drew over 135 jobseekers. The exhibitors were enthusiastic about the event, many of them leaving with stacks of CVs and confidence they had found matches for their open positions.
