As a lecturer at graduate and MBA courses at the University of Nebraska, Omaha, Šoškić taught financial markets and institutions, financial management and international business and economics. In 2002, he was a guest lecturer at universities of New Haven, Rhode Island and Berkeley. He attended specialized financial market courses at US universities (in 1994, 1998 and 2002) and the Swiss National Bank (in 2001).[citation needed]

He served as a special financial markets adviser in the National Bank of Yugoslavia (2000–02), economic policy adviser in the EU Policy and Legal Advice Center (2002–03), and was a member of the Council of the National Bank of Serbia (2003–04) and its Chairman until 28 July 2010.[citation needed]

He was appointed Governor of the National Bank of Serbia on 28 July 2010 by the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia for a term of six years. He resigned the position on 2 August 2012[3] stating as the reason for his resignation the proposed amendments to the NBS Law, which in his opinion, substantially impair the independence of the NBS and open up the possibility of degradation and professional decision making within the NBS, which could stimulate the economic and financial instability in the country.[4]

His resignation was adopted by National assembly on 6 August 2012. He was succeeded by Jorgovanka Tabaković.[5]
