Financial institutions "rent" money in the form of loans. If they don't make any loans, they don't make any profit. That makes loan officers very important employees, because they're the people who work with customers to assemble and analyze the information needed to determine how much someone can borrow.

There are set financial formulas, to be sure. But loan officers who specialize in "commercial" lending, or loans to businesses, must also know a lot about the businesses their customers are in. On the other hand, loan officers who specialize in home mortgage loans must be very familiar with the local real estate market.

Loan officers and loan counselors deal with money. But they also help make things happen for people, and that can be very satisfying.
