One of the most frequently asked questions about the mortgage business is this:
Can I get a job underwriting if I have never underwritten before?
The short answer is yes, but there is a big caveat: You must KNOW how to underwrite.
Two of the factors that go into selecting candidates for underwriting is:
Let me start with a common scenario. You may have been a loan officer, loan set-up person or processor and you liked the position, you just wish it paid more. You thought that you may be interested in a making a career in mortgages but really wanted to get into underwriting…but couldn’t.
One of my first strategies is to teach you HOW to underwrite so that you can 1-get an interview and 2-get an underwriting job. You need to be able to “talk-the talk” and the only way to be able to do that is to actually learn the job.
Important: Many people think it must be REALLY hard to underwrite or you must be super-smart to do it…not true. All you need is the willingness to learn and the ability to communicate well.
That is why in my webinar, I teach people the language of mortgage underwriting. And the more you can learn the better off you will be.
Consider this: Let’s say you own an airplane. Owning a plane isn’t enough to be granted a pilot’s license. You must first demonstrate your ability to take off and land, you must KNOW how to fly a plane!
Likewise, getting in to mortgage underwriting is the same. Putting on your resume that you were an underwriter is not enough, you need to able to show your skills and answer questions when asked. And because the business has changed so much in recent years, you need recent information that is relevant to today’s market.
When you watch my videos I explain how to underwrite and I teach you how to get an underwriting job. You need to learn all of the acronyms and common questions that are asked…and better yet, you need a good answer to those questions. I’ve got some pretty good ones for you!
You have the confidence, you have the ability, now all you need is the inside information!
Make it a great day,
