Most loan interviewer and clerk jobs require interviewing loan applicants, investigating backgrounds, verifying references and preparing loan request forms. Carol Kaplan, media contact for the American Bankers Association, speculates that “traditionally, clerk and teller jobs are part-time positions, which are typically dominated by women who have caretaking responsibilities.” However, from 2000 to 2011, the number of men working in such jobs increased by 63.9%. In 2000, men made up just 10.9% of loan interviewers and clerks. Kaplan suggests that the economic downturn may have forced men into these roles.
