A recent wave of layoffs from some of the biggest banks is making it harder than ever to get a job on Wall Street, recruiters and other insiders say…

“It’s a tough time if you’re an average performer,” Alan Johnson, CEO of Johnson Associates, told The Post. “If you’re good or very good, it’s not a bad time.”

The most in-demand types of jobs, Johnson said, are in technology and operations, and banks are continuing to hire aggressively in those positions.

“It’s surprising,” Johnson said. “The markets and the real economy can be up and Wall Street can be down. The real question is, when the markets and real economy are down, then what happens to Wall Street?”
