Overview

If you enjoy handling finances and providing advice, becoming a banker may be a good career for you. Bankers are responsible for providing financial advice to their clients. Furthermore, they educate clients about loans, investments, and other financial products. Bankers are also responsible for promoting financial products or developing promotional plans.

Bankers can work as personal bankers, corporate bankers, or commercial bankers. Depending on the type of banker, duties can vary. Personal bankers usually deal with mortgages and personal financial accounts. Commercial and corporate bankers work with large companies and their many complex accounts.

Smaller banks may hire people with a high school diploma and promote from within. In such cases, they typically provide education. However, it is best to have a bachelor?s degree in finance or accounting to start as an entry-level banker. For a job as a corporate or commercial banker, a master?s degree is beneficial. To become a banker, mathematical skills are a must. Solid communication and organizational skills are essential. Bankers must also be honest and dependable.
