If you don't want to work in any of the areas we highlighted for you this morning, that's ok. There are jobs elsewhere.

Most importantly, there are absolutely loads of jobs in corporate banking at JPMorgan. Financial News elaborates on the immense hiring that has been - and is still - taking place there.

So far this year, FN says JPM has hired more than 50 new corporate bankers globally. It wants to hire another 40 corporate bankers in Europe before December.

If corporate banking isn't your metier, the Financial Times has an alternative. It says there are jobs in shipping restructuring. Blackstone, Evercore and Oaktree are all said to be pushing into restructuring loans related to the building of ships.

The FT quotes Albert Stein, a senior manager in the London office of restructuring adviser AlixPartners, who said several banks have told him they're expanding their ship restructuring services soon.
