The article presents the experiences of the author who is a banker. The author had a major in personnel management/industrial relations and a minor in finance. He interviewed with Northwest Bancorporation. They wanted someone who had grown up or spent summers in a small town, and the author qualified. According to the author, the regulatory burden today is heavier than ever and the baseline cost of business is higher, but banks continue to operate. In part that is because computers increased efficiency.
