Employers prefer applicants who have a bachelor's degree. They look for applicants who have studied economics, finance, accounting, or business administration. Many banks promote their own workers to loan officers. These workers usually need several years of experience as a bank teller or loan clerk.
Employers look for applicants who have good math and analytical skills. They also look for applicants who have good communication skills, because they must explain difficult concepts to loan applicants. In addition, employers look for applicants who are a good judge of character. Sometimes loan officers must trust their instincts about whether applicants will pay back loans. Finally, employers look for applicants who are honest, because they deal with large amounts of money.
Experienced loan officers advance by working on larger loans. They also advance by moving to larger branch offices where they work with more customers. Loan officers who have excellent people skills may become supervisors. Those who have excellent administrative skills may become managers. Loan officers may need additional training or education to advance to supervisory or management positions.
