Wire Desk Coordinator, San Francisco, CA - August 9, 2016
As a wire desk coordinator at Parkside, my team is responsible for sending a high volume of closing wires. We touch every loan that Parkside funds, thus our efficiency and attention to detail are of the utmost importance. Each day, we are tasked with verifying and requesting dozens of wires before the daily funding cutoff. Wires are requested by funders and closers via email, therefore we receive upwards of 200 emails daily. Staying on top of email correspondence is essential to our success.
I enjoy the culture at Parkside, and I work with people who are professional and kind. Parkside stresses peer-to-peer recognition, which is exemplified through our "Pickle" program, which allows employees to give "pickles" to outstanding coworkers. At the end of each month, the top pickle recipients earn prizes.
Working with Parkside has given me an extremely keen eye for detail. In our position, every digit must be exact, lest a wire get sent to an incorrect account or in an incorrect dollar amount. I have developed a true eagle-eye for discrepancy. I have also improved upon my time management skills, as well as my ability to stay cool under pressure. We are required to request all wires before cutoff, which requires both accuracy and efficiency.
