One of the best part-time jobs a college student can hold is in banking. Banks that make a wonderful start when you’re looking for part-time jobs in banking include Bank of America, which currently has $2.2 trillion in assets; Citigroup, which follows close in line with its 1.8 trillion in assets; Wells Fargo ($1.4 trillion); Capital One Financial Group ($312.0 billion); and PNC Financial Services Group ($305.1 billion). Because banks’ success and vitality are determined mostly (but not entirely) by the assets they possess, the banks with higher assets tend to be “sure bets” when it comes to finding good, secure banking entry-level jobs.
As to what sort of banking part-time jobs you can find within each of those companies, well it all depends on what you wish to do and where your skill sets lie. If you want to be a bank manager, for example, you could start out as a part-time teller and work your way up. Unfortunately, job opportunities in the banking field aren’t as prevalent as they used to be, with these positions only expected to grow about 9% between now and 2020 (a massive decrease compared to previous years). The good news, though, is that some growth is better than no growth or, worse yet, a decline.
