    I hope it went well! I am a mortgage loan officer and have been for 5 years. At the time I got the job I didn't know jack about the business. I loved learning this business. I must tell you though that I work off of commission. As mentioned before there isn't a whole lot going on good in the mortgage business right now because of all of the foreclosures. When the economy is good the mortgage business is good and you can make great money. It's a feast or fathom business. There are some positions though, for instance a mortgage loan processor makes a steady salary. Anyways, I love the mortgage field and I reccomend it to anyone that likes numbers, loves to help people accomplish their dreams (own their own home) and likes to be their own boss :)

      ok I'm back!

      It went well!! I really hope I get the job. I was there for an hour! Met with the recruiter then he had me sit down with a loan officer to tell me about his job. They said there's two sides I can do - financial or sales. I hate selling so I might go for the banking. Unfortunately there's no base salary but once I get started, I get commission even when training with the bankers. The loan officer told me he made $100K in his first year.. I don't see that happening for me with this economy but it's a nice goal right? They said that my fluent Portuguese & Spanish really will help me bc they don't have anyone that speaks another language there. By Monday I should know if they want me back for a second interview with the partners of the company.

      And get this.. my commute.... 3 minutes!!! I make a left off my street and it's on that road hehehe It's less than a mile away from my house!

            Of course! I will help you with anything you need. When I first started I had two great people that guided me and it is a lot to learn but if you are ready and anxious to make it you can. The money is good when the economy is good. Take this slow time to learn and then when it picks back up you will be rockin' and rollin'
            I have my fingers crossed for you! I bet you get it :)

              Thats what they told me and I don't mind that it's slow bc it does give me that time I need to learn. I'm really excited and ready for the challenge. I hope I get it

              Do you go out and sell? I just cant see myself doing that.. the Loan Officer I talked to says he's always out golfing with his clients and stuff..

                  It totally does.. it's what I need. A real career. Being an esthetician is something I can do part-time (as I am now) but it's not the full time job that I want. Plus, I only get paid cash which could be good but when I want to buy a new car and house, it doesnt work..
