Workforce Development

In order to remain competitive, the banking industry must recruit the most talented, diverse and inclusive workforce across all levels of the bank. To assist in this effort, PA Bankers actively participates in three programs to recruit the next generation of bankers and support the industry: BankWork$, Next Generation Bankers Academy and CSBS Community Bank Case Study Competition.

Micro-Internship Program

Introducing the NEW Micro-Internship Program, Sponsored by the PA Bankers Services Corporation
The Micro-Internship Program is a new, innovative program delivered by Select Vendor BankTalentHQ and Parker Dewey aimed to help your financial institutions attract talent to the financial services industry, enhance output without increasing labor, and create a pool of potential employment candidates.

Working in communities of need and with students who typically would not be considered qualified candidates for banking/financial services positions, BankWork$ offers opportunities to succeed in well-paying jobs that can lead to a lasting career in the banking industry. Each eight-week class is designed to train entry-level bank tellers, customer service representatives and personal banker candidates and ultimately provide and connect those candidates to local banks and financial institutions.
