Loan Officer

Odds of Getting In

Loan officers usually start their careers working for mortgage brokers or in the sales function of home mortgages. Or, they can also start on the processing end or in the legal department for the bank. That means you have to either have the right degree or the right connection. Maybe you know someone who owes you a favor, or you can owe one to them.

Hey, isn't that kind of the job anyway? Consider that your first loan.
