Remember that the role is rooted in service.

It’s not just about handling money; as a bank teller, you must handle customers, too. Use your resume to explain what great customer service means to you, and how you’ve given it to your customers again and again.

List all your skills separately.

Some job applicants like to intertwine their skills with their job experience. If they used skills A, B, and C while working for Job X, they’ll mention those skills in the same section of the resume that describes the job. While this is certainly a fine way to format your resume, it’s still important to have a separate section that lists out all your skills in their entirety.

Be open to change and evolution.

A soft skill to embody and display when applying to a finance job—or any industry these days—is adaptability. Demonstrating an ability to grow and shift as a bank teller, learning new industry rules or standards, will help you stand out.
