"I want to be a bank teller because I believe it's the strongest start I can gain for my future career as a mortgage specialist. I aim to grow with your institution and believe that this is the best first step I could make."
"I have been banking with your institution for a couple of years now and see how much your tellers seem to enjoy their work. I like the hours offered here and the fact that I could utilize my accounting diploma as well."
"I have worked as a bank teller for one of your competitors for the past four years. Although I love the team I work for, and the bank is a well-known one, it's a small branch which means minimal growth opportunity for me.
