Tips for Writing a Better Loan Officer Resume

Your resume has one purpose: to get you interviews for jobs you want. You can ensure your resume serves that purpose by focusing on your most relevant skills and showing them on the page as clearly as possible. The tips below will help you give your resume the focus and clarity it needs to move your job search forward.

Brainstorm highlights from your career

To write a great loan officer resume, you’ll need to first take the full measure of your relevant background. Follow these three steps:

Step 1: For each job in your work history, brainstorm and write down your answer to the question: What are you most proud of about this experience? Write down memories as they occur to you, and don’t worry yet whether the details are relevant or well-organized. Resist the urge to complete this step in any structured or linear way. The point here is just to generate plenty of positive information you can then review more critically.

Step 2: Now with everything in front of you, go through and remove any details that don’t speak to your target job. Evaluate each detail one by one, always answering the same key question: Does this overlap with the duties you’d like to have in your next loan officer job? When in doubt, move the detail to another document so it’s out of your current writing process. If you follow this process diligently, you may find yourself deleting some details from your past loan officer jobs, and keeping some details from other jobs. This is a good sign. It means you’re figuring out how to (a) focus on your directly related loan experience and (b) show the relevance of other chapters in your work history.

Step 3: Organize and format your remaining details as the basis for your resume.

The order of these steps is important. Don’t start reviewing and removing details until you’ve brainstormed plenty about your positive work experiences. And don’t start organizing details until you’re done removing the irrelevant ones. Otherwise, you’ll probably waste time polishing up work details that you just delete later on. For a more detailed overview of this method, see the “How to write a successful resume” section of our Resume vs Curriculum Vitae (CV) article.

Quantify your loan processing experience

When you give specific numbers and results, hiring managers can better grasp the scope and impact of your work. Within each bullet point of your Experience section, see if you can include answers to the questions “How much?” or “How many?” If you don’t know the exact number, you can use the tilde (~) symbol to indicate an estimate or average.


  • Oversee a team of 10 officers originating FHA and VA loans
  • Actively manage a pipeline of 50+ loans, or ~$20M total financing
  • Surpass monthly sales goal by 20%+ on average

Ditch the phrase “attention to detail”

For loan officers, attention to detail is key. But countless other professionals (both in and outside finance) cite “attention to detail” as a key skill on their resume. The phrase is so overused that it no longer means anything to recruiters and hiring managers. How can you express this theme in a more precise and compelling way? Here’s the trick: Convert it to a verb phrase. Specifically, start a sentence with “Closely analyze”, “Closely track”, or “Closely monitor”. Then flesh it out with details from your job experience.


Gather and closely analyze financial data to determine whether clients qualify for their desired loan

Common Key Skills for Loan Officer Resumes

You can boost your resume by adding keywords.

That’s because companies looking to fill a position often use an applicant tracking system (ATS). This computer system scans each submitted resume for keywords relevant to the job at hand. When the ATS scans a resume with many relevant keywords, it’s prone to flag the document for the hiring manager.

To make your resume ATS-friendly, add a keyword-rich “Skills” or “Expertise” section to your resume (as in the examples above). Below are common keywords for loan officers:

Key Skills and Proficiencies
Client Service & Relations Commercial Loan Processing
Credit Evaluation Customer Satisfaction
Data Gathering & Analysis Financial Analysis
Financial Software Loan Origination
Loan Servicing Mortgage Loan Processing
Portfolio Management QuickBooks
Regulatory Compliance Reporting & Documentation
Task Prioritization Team Collaboration
Team Management TurnKey Lender

Common Action Verbs for Loan Officer Resumes

One of the most common resume mistakes is using too few verbs. When you repeat the same generic verb (say, “Manage”) several times, it distracts the reader and fails to show the dynamic nature of your work. The following list will help you mix up the verbs on your loan officer resume:

Action Verbs
Analyze Answer
Assist Collaborate
Communicate Coordinate
Deliver Establish
Evaluate Finalize
Implement Lead
Organize Originate
Prepare Process
Record Report
Supervise Verify

How to Align Your Resume With the Job Description

One thing that’s unique to each job posting is the description of the hiring company. You can enhance your resume by tailoring it based on any company details that resonate with you. Follow these four steps:

Step 1: Jot down a few notes on the type of work environment you like best. For instance, you may prefer an environment that’s:

  • Client-focused
  • Collaborative
  • Fast-paced
  • Forward-looking
  • Process-oriented
  • Quality-focused

Step 2: When you find a job posting that intrigues you, look for any details about the work culture. They will often appear in any description included about the hiring company or team you’d be part of.

Step 3: Compare those details against your preferred work environment, and highlight any overlap.

Step 4: Add a line or two to your Profile emphasizing that similarity. For example, say you prefer a work environment that’s client-focused. You find a posting that says “We are an organization that places customer satisfaction at the center of every decision.” You can then add a Profile line such as:

  • “Thrive in customer-focused work environments.”
  • “Committed to helping a company maintain positive long-term relationships with customers.”

This simple exercise can make your resume more accurately show why you’re a great fit for the hiring company as well as why they should call you for an interview.
