Education Requirements

Bank tellers and other clerks usually need only a high school education. Most banks seek people who have good basic math and communications skills, enjoy public contact and feel comfortable handling large amounts of money.

Sales representatives in financial services and workers in executive, administrative and managerial banking jobs usually have a college degree.

The Institute of Financial Education and the American Institute of Banking offer courses that help prepare workers for positions with more responsibilities.
