Gary’s Answer

Hi,
Working in a bank can offer a few different careers...being a bank teller normally requires good customer service skills, good math and the ability to work with money, make change, figure out simple math and being able to be friendly and help customers. Taking courses in banking, finance, accounting and business can help you get hired and then help you to advance your career to other jobs like loan officer, management and more.
Hope this helps...good luck! :)

Amanda’s Answer

The benefits of working in the Banking field is that you can learn the field and move and grow without any specific college courses. I held every position within the retail bank. My best advice is that you always strive to learn the responsibilities of the next level position while excelling in your current position.
Thank you comment icon Hi Amanda, you mentioned that you can get into banking with any college major. Is a 4 year college degree required? Gurpreet Lally, Admin

Sarah’s Answer

The short answer is you likely do not need any specific college education to enter the banking world as a teller, however, it can surely help you as you progress in your career. Having a customer service and cash handling background can be helpful with the initial skill set and then you will have many opportunities to learn and hone your skills on the job. If you're going to college while on your search, however, having a degree path focused in business can help you build your resume as you will touch on many topics such as mathematics, finance, management, marketing, public relations, etc. I must mention, banks are businesses that are run by individuals from many different degree backgrounds once you look beyond the branch life. Banks have legal teams, technology teams, accountants, public relations, facilities (people skilled in the trades), and beyond. There are many different paths that can be taken based off of your interests.

hi , there isn’t t a specific college or university that you need to attend in order to work for a bank. You can get your bachelor degree from any college -the degree can be business administration, business managements, finance-that if you Re interested in working in retail field.

Working in the bank have different departments0 such as branch banking-working with customers and associates. human resOurces- you need a human resource g]degree- this department also has many different field- payroll, diversity and inclusion, Performance management, recruiting.

If you want to work in the back office- compliance, operations, investment, corporate banking, card management, product developing- this would be a digital degree that would help you to start that position.

I recommend that you do some research around banking jobs- just google and read more about careers available. After, you locate the one that would b esf your interest- do some research again steps to take to get hired for this position., which degree or now there are many certificates that you can tease online for a certain job requirement. I think, it would give you a much broader information which path you would like to proceed. Then do some research around companies that offer those positions, check their base salary and skills requirements. Research what your resume should look like and begin your process of studying for it. Hope it helps.

Ellen’s Answer

I agree with my fellow responders. Any college degree will help you build a career in banking. You can major in Business or Finance if that interests you, but it is not mandatory to enter the field. My degree was in Liberal Arts and I have worked in the Financial Services/Banking industry for over 25 years. Most organizations are looking for candidates that are hard working, willing to learn and model a strong work ethic.

Banks are more than just branches with teller positions. Although it can be helpful to start in the front lines to learn the ropes and gain that customer service experience. I would suggest looking into entry level positions in banks in your preferred working location. Read up on the skills and qualifications they are looking for in those jobs to get a sense if these positions are a good fit for you, your personality, skill sets and goals.

Good luck with your higher education. Remember to have some fun along the way. Good grades are important but not everything!
