Sorry to hear about the layoffs. I work for The Vanguard Group (very large mutual fund / financial services company) in Malvern, PA. They currently have 1 posted position for a web interface designer, for which I will post the details below. Vanguard does ALOT of hiring based on employee recommendations, and it is entirely possible that some positions could get filled before they ever reach the employment web site (www.vanguardcareers.com). That being the case, if anyone is interested in getting their resume in the door, email me directly and I would be happy to submit it in person, and put the word out for you. Obviously, we have been impacted by the current market / world conditions, but Vanguard is a GREAT company to work for, and they are sure to rebound stronger than ever!
Here is the web interface designer information - I hope this helps someone:
