I worked for almost a decade for a mortgage bank as a programmer and analyst. I can tell you that "backoffice" work of many kinds are available to anyone with good basic "smarts".
If you obtained a college degree you definitely have what it takes to do many different jobs in such an environment. My wife took her degree in art history and became the head of the tax and insurance section in that same bank (that's how we met) - she had good math skills, communications and organizational skills.
I have a neice who parlayed her skills with languages into a good job with Citigroup.
There's room for many types of people in big banks and insurance companies - if you're lucky you can find good benefits as well - and banks are hiring now to keep up with all the activities in the mortgage markets (bad and good).
You could be crunching numbers, troubleshooting customer problems, doing business analysis, etc. Much of what used to be the domain of "technical" people is now in the hands of business people what with pc's and basic office tools like Excel, Word, Powerpoint, etc.
Go for it! I think these are places where you can still take a non-specialized resume and move up the ladder.
ps - if you don't have experience in Office tools (Excel / Word top the list) - get it - either on your own or through some kind of class. They all look for that.
