I would recommend applying for any entry level position at a bank. This will allow you to gain experience and also get familiar with the bank processes. Do a great job and you will definitely reach your goals.
definitely continue with your studies (focusing on mortgage banking) and apply for internships/employment with banking corporation. also, stay positive (management always rewards positive people). good luck!
A finance degree is helpful. Additionally banks offer summer internship. You might also considered work at a bank. When I was a bank manager I would hire college students to work part time
To become a bank manager, there are several paths you can follow. If you are planning to go to college, you would want to focus on degrees in the following areas of study: Finance, Accounting, Economics or Business Administration. I also recommend taking classes in personal finance, investments, loans/lending, real estate, and risk management.
You have to start somewhere in the bank. Myself I stated in a very small bank at a low entry level. Being positive, be eager to learn and volunteer whenever you can. Get noticed be proactive in networking make sure you know everyone in the bank and learn as much as you can about what they do. These early years will be your foundation. Remember enthusiasm is noticeable and create your own opportunity by loving what you do and thirst for growth and knowledge.
Research entry level positions at banks or credit unions in your community. Learn basics of depository laws and lending products, and basic bank services. Understand that banking is really about customer service and matching the right products with the right customer. Be willing to start as a teller and move up!
