LOAN OFFICER

Loan Officers are people who work for banks and other financial institutions with the main objective to recommend individual and business loan applications for approval and participate in the front end of the mortgage origination process. Loan officers specialize in commercial, consumer and mortgage loans. Although they are employed by financial institutions, they can be seen as intermediaries between lending institutions and borrowers. They solicit loans, represent creditors to borrowers, and represent borrowers to creditors.

Loan Officer positions generally require a bachelor’s degree in finance, economics, or a related field if working in the commercial lending sector. With residential lending, Loan Officers must obtain their MLO License from the NMLS and/or registration depending on the type of financial institution where the Loan Officer is employed. Banking, lending, or sales experience is highly valued by employers in both a commercial and residential lending. Most employers also prefer applicants who are familiar with computers and their applications in banking. Loan officers without college degrees usually advance to their positions from other jobs in an organization after acquiring several years of work experience in various other occupations, such as teller or customer service representative. Personal qualities such as sales ability, good interpersonal and communication skills, and a strong desire to succeed also are important qualities for loan officers.
