Loan Anyone? Entry-Level Loan Officer

Those with a degree in economics or finance are definitely qualified to start the search for entry-level job opportunities as a loan officer. Main duties for loan officers entail analyzing whether certain parties are qualified to obtain particular loans. These “certain parties” are typically corporations, banks or sometimes individuals. If someone wants to apply for a loan, a loan officer is someone they must go through. The loan officer then determines their creditworthiness for the loan in question. A loan officer’s job also has a bit of sales involved, as they don’t only determine the “worthiness” of a loan application. A loan officer also seeks out clients for loans.
There is also a chance for advancement as most experienced loan officers do move into managerial positions. As for the job outlook, the opportunities are growing and will continue to do so as most people out there (be they companies, entrepreneurs or students) need loans at some point in their lives and careers. They will, without a doubt, apply for loans and then the loan officer will move in and decide whether to say yay or nay. Or maybe one of these people is not sure exactly what loan is the “best loan” and the loan officer will move in and sell, sell, sell. If this sounds like a place you want to be then, have fun, learn new things and find that entry-level loan officer job!!
