Banking is more than just a job—it’s a mission and a privilege.
While it may not be your dream career, banking offers an incredible opportunity to serve others and make a difference in people’s lives. Many entrepreneurs cite financial services as their biggest challenge, but banks also offer opportunities to develop interpersonal skills and technical knowledge that are incredibly valuable in business management.
There are many opportunities for women entrepreneurs in financial services in India, especially in the microfinance industry.
Microloans can be an important source of capital for small businesses, allowing owners to hire more employees, buy equipment or start their business entirely from scratch. While men have dominated this industry up until now, there’s no reason why women cannot own profitable microlending companies themselves.
Most banks and other lenders will consider you if you have a professional headshot available as well.
The saying “You only get one chance at a first impression” is famous for a reason—it’s absolutely true! And no matter how experienced or qualified someone may be, without a great resume or an impressive interview, they won’t get many opportunities. A professional headshot is your opportunity to show potential employers that you care about what you do and that you are ready to handle any challenge with confidence and style.
If you want to start a bank or develop a product for your own bank, you need to learn the banking system and how it works at a very deep level.
That may sound scary, but there are many ways to get around it. You can attend training classes, take community college courses, and even work as an intern in the bank industry—all of which will help you better understand what banks do and how they operate.
Learn from leaders in the field.
One of the greatest challenges for women entrepreneurs is feeling confident in their abilities. You may have an idea that you think can really work, but how will you know unless you try? Leaders in your industry are important because they’ve been there and done that. They have lessons learned and advice for others who are just starting out. As someone with experience, you can certainly help them understand what you want from your business and why
Develop strong relationships with important people.
Building trustworthy networks takes time, so don’t expect everyone you meet at your first networking event to be a close friend or family member. However, you can develop valuable connections by speaking positively about what you do and asking other attendees for advice. This is how it starts—a relationship built through communication that leads to opportunities.
