Three Transferable Skills Your Advance Financial Career Will Teach You

So you’ve graduated from college with a shiny new diploma in hand, and you’re anxiously anticipating your entry into the professional world. Or maybe you’ve been outside of the classroom for a few years, but you’re intrigued by the growing financial tech industry and looking to make a career shift. Whichever category you find yourself in, a career in financial services will grow and stretch you both personally and professionally. As one of the leading multi-state fintech companies in the country, a member of the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country list for the seventh year in a row and the fourth fastest growing company in the Nashville market, Advance Financial is a company that is no stranger to hiring and developing emerging leaders.

Looking for a career in which you can learn skills that will benefit you beyond the office? Join our team to gain valuable experience in these areas:

 

Problem Solving

Whether you find yourself ensuring operational excellence as a district manager, driving team effectiveness as a customer care supervisor or creating learning content as an instructional designer, a critical part of your Advance Financial career will be using your critical thinking skills to identify problems and create solutions. The ability to actively problem solve, instead of simply waiting for someone to provide you with a solution, is what will set you apart as you continue to grow in your career. An added bonus? Your experience in overcoming challenges will be great examples to discuss in your future job interviews!

 

Community Service

At Advance Financial, we deeply value the communities we serve, which is why we make it a company priority to give back. Every employee receives 40 hours of paid time off to volunteer at a non-profit organization of their choice, in addition to participating in the company-wide Day of Service. By engaging in service early in your career, you aren’t just learning the value of giving back, but also developing traits in being a leader in the community, encouraging team building and working closely with community non-profits to build mutually beneficial relationships.

 

Interpersonal Skills

We pride ourselves on being employee- and community-centered, meaning we are always looking for ways to help inside and outside the walls of our building. With a career at one of our retail locations, you will be interacting daily with customers, listening to their concerns and strategically solving problems. If your role is technology-based, there’s a good chance you will still be interacting with customers through the computer screen, in addition to collaborating with co-workers to build a strong and successful team. While interacting with others successfully doesn’t seem like a tough skill to master, it is ranked as one of the top five must-have traits of successful leaders by Success.

 

When thinking about the next step in your career path, there are so many factors to consider; location, salary, enjoyment, challenge, company culture. However, it’s important to remember that the most critical factor a job can offer you is the ability to gain skills that you will be able to take with you long after your last day.
