4 mortgage staffing essentials

first_img 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Applying the best in ‘people practices’ can help CUs do well in the home loan marketby: Dennis HardimanCredit unions have long prided themselves on their outstanding member service. Their mortgage business is no exception. However, as the cost, complexity and risk involved with originating mortgages continue to climb, many credit unions are struggling to keep up with larger institutions.The good news is that much can be done to build up a mortgage staff to help make a credit union’s mortgage operation successful. The following four steps are ones leveraged by Embrace Home Loans and the team at Affinity, our outsourced mortgage solution. You can apply them at your credit union, too.1. Recruit the right talent. First and foremost, your credit union must ensure it is recruiting the right loan officers and mortgage staff. With national banks continuing to lay off their mortgage teams, there is a growing talent pool of professionals with extensive experience. For instance, Wells Fargo is cutting more than 1,000 lending jobs this year, presenting credit unions with an opportunity to scoop up top talent.Location-agnostic talent can also be a benefit by virtually supporting your credit union’s goal to provide members with mortgage loans. As an example, Embrace Home Loans is recruiting work-at-home underwriters. continue reading »last_img read more

Recruiting top talent takes courage

first_img 19SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Human resource (HR) leaders are continually looking to find the best talent for open positions at their credit unions. But it’s critical for credit unions to have a strategy in place to find, recruit, and retain those individuals.And that may mean thinking outside the box and using a new set of techniques instead of traditional methods, Richard Finnegan said during a preconference workshop Sunday at the CUNA HR & Organizational Development Council Conference in Orlando.Finnegan, CEO of C-Suite Analytics, advised attendees to take four recruiting methods:1. Use LinkedInUse this social media platform to connect with local credit union professionals and join credit union groups. This will give your credit union an easy and free way to connect with prospective employees and send out job announcements.“These are such good tools that are just sitting there for us,” Finnegan says. continue reading »last_img read more

No need for science museum in Albany

first_imgRecently, there was a proposal to have the state fund a new science museum in Albany. Rest assured that we are completely opposed to this proposal, nor do we see any likelihood that there will be funding in the state budget for it.Albany already has the State Museum, the State Library, the Albany Institute of History and Art, The Times-Union Center, and the new state-subsidized Capital Convention Center. In addition, the city of Albany received $12.5 million in state funding this year to close a budget shortfall.While Albany is the capital city and deserves our support, this idea goes too far. Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Certainly the city of Schenectady has a far more historic relationship with science than Albany, and it doesn’t have to start from scratch. Less than 20 miles from Albany, it already has miSci (the Museum of Innovation and Science) that is currently only supported by the local community and would soar with state funding.It’s neither realistic nor fair to the entire Capital Region to make a pie-in-the-sky proposal without a realistic sense of where the revenue is going to come from to fund it, especially when there are more viable alternatives available.Angelo SantabarbaraPhil SteckSchenectadyThe writers are members of the New York State Assembly.More from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady man dies following Cutler Street dirt bike crashTroopers: Schenectady pair possessed heroin, crack cocaine in Orange County Thruway stopSchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%Schenectady department heads: Budget cutbacks would further stress already-stretched departmentsAnderson starts, but Dodgers finish off NLCS winlast_img read more
