Day to Day

A great day at Capital One is when every customer that I see at the teller line or at my desk leaves satisfied and more knowledgeable about their finances. If a student was to shadow me, they would see me processing both consumer and business transactions such as deposits, withdrawals, or credit card payments. They would also see me providing a full range of banking services such as opening accounts, researching and answering customers inquires, and providing financial counseling.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Important skills in this include strong attention to detail, because when you are dealing with peoples' money it is very important to make sure that all the numbers are accurate. Another important skill is customer service, the customer is very important and when you are interacting with customers you need to be able to make sure that they leave 100% happy all the time!
