The compliance field in financial services is growing by 31 percent, according to the Buearu of Labor. That's mostly because of Dodd-Frank, reports Julie Steinberg in Fins Finance.

Compliance is a geeky field, much like the technical parts of social networking are for types like Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. Also, a legal background, depending on who's hiring, is either a prerequisite or can give the edge. If you're highly focused and know your way around finance and the law, then you can keep financial institutions on the right side of reporting requirements.
