Help Wanted in Arizona

Hundreds of job openings are being filled in Arizona by JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s mortgage unit. The recruiting efforts are on top of hirings being made in Ohio and Texas.

Chase announced Tuesday plans to increase its mortgage staffing in Arizona, where it already employs over 11,000 people across the entire organization.

The company is holding a job fair at the Chase Tower in downtown Phoenix on Friday. The event starts at 11 a.m. and runs until 7 p.m.

Successful job candidates will work at the company’s mortgage operations facility in Tempe.

Around 250 of the 310 jobs being filled will be on a schedule that starts in the afternoon and continues through midnight.

An emphasis is being made to hire veterans, the statement said. Chase said it previously launched the “100,000 Jobs Mission” with 10 other firms in its effort to employ former members of the military.

The New York-based company, which reported a national mortgage staff of 46,374 as of Sept. 30, has been aggressively recruiting for its mortgage operation since last year. The hiring efforts include 1,650 people in Texas and as many as a thousand employees in Ohio.

Chase reported in February that it has hired nearly 8,000 servicing employees since 2009 to deal with a growing number of distressed borrowers. In April, the company reported that it expected to add as many as 3,000 mortgage servicing jobs including the Ohio recruits.
