Interviewers, New Account - Preparation

To work as a new accounts clerk, you typically need to:

  • have a high school diploma or equivalent; and
  • complete moderate-term, on-the-job training.

Education after high school

Formal education beyond high school is not required to become a new accounts clerk. However, a degree in finance or banking is good preparation.

Work experience

Many new accounts clerks have work experience in a related job. Working as a bank teller is a common way to prepare for this occupation. However, any job where you have worked with numbers is good preparation.

On-the-job training

You receive on-the-job training about the bank's procedures, products, and services. If you do not have bank teller experience you may also receive teller training. Training can last up to one year.
