Banking Careers

If you’re interested in a career in banking, the first thing to ask yourself is what major area of banking you’re interested in. You could work in retail banking (banking for individuals), business banking, private banking (banking and wealth management geared toward individuals of very high net worth), or investment banking (geared toward large corporations).

A few positions for you to consider include:

  • Credit analyst: Determine a company’s or individual’s credit-worthiness
  • Investment banker: Starting out as a junior associate, raise money for corporations
  • Sales: Sell a bank’s financial services
  • Branch management: Starting out as an associate, oversee the bank’s operations
  • Bank teller: Cash and deposit checks, handle withdrawals, answer customer queries

Some of the largest banks have services geared toward all of these areas. You need a bachelor’s degree with strong quantitative and business skills for many of these positions, but you could get started by working part-time or as an intern.
