Although mortgage-related hirings have been recently declining, several thousand veterans have been hired by a bank, and one firm is adding a thousand jobs in the Grand Canyon State.

Each month, Mortgage Daily estimates total mortgage industry employment based on non-bank data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The latest estimate was 740,100 jobs as of July.

Mortgage job count declined from an estimated 741,200 in June. It was the first drop in mortgage staffing since February, when the estimated total was calculated to be 720,400.
