Career Story: Salesperson For A Mutual Savings Bank

Salesperson For A Mutual Savings Bank

Job Title: Business Development Officer AVP

Type of Company: I work for a mutual saving bank that is privately owned.

Education: Associates degree

Previous Experience: I have been in banking for 25 years.

Job Tasks: I am a business development officer for a local mutual savings bank. My primary job is to generate new business for our bank. I prospect local businesses in my territories and send them information about the products and services we provide. I then set up appointments to talk to them to see how we can help them. I discuss the security of our institution and the experience and expertise that I can provide them. I am able many times to save them money with our deposit accounts, loan products, and investment options. We also offer free consultations on benefits reviews, merchant credit card needs and software systems that we provide our customers.

I also pride myself in the great customer service that we are able to provide these customers so they stay loyal to our bank. I am able to give much of my time to help with my community's needs. I volunteer my time to local programs and non-profit organizations that may need extra help. I also work on school banking programs in our communities and stress the importance of savings to students while offering them a special account they can open from school. To make it easier for them to use it we send a runner each week to do deposits for the students right from their school. We like to partner with our customers and do our best to help them with all their banking needs.

Best and Worst Parts of the Job: I really like working with the public. I enjoy talking to people about their business and what they do. I find it very interesting to talk to people about what they do and how they decided to start a business. I enjoy helping local businesses prosper. My position has been a wonderful learning experience and is something different everyday. The only thing I do not like is having to dress up everyday!

Job Tips: There is always opportunity for advancement. You can use this job to better yourself personally. It is very rewarding to contribute to your local communities.
