As larger financial institutions closed or consolidated in Orange County over the past few years, we saw there was a demand for what we at Rhinebeck Bank do best – supply individuals, families and businesses with a wide selection of banking and lending solutions, and support them with the right technology and our hallmark superior customer service. (… and you thought you left “Supply and Demand” back in your Introduction to Economics class from years ago.)

They need a financial partner that can provide the lending support they need to take that next step.
Rhinebeck is one of the more lively towns in the Hudson Valley, with cute local shops, amazing restaurants and cobblestone streets to walk down, you can make a day our of your next bank visit.
About a week ago, I had the opportunity to help our Human Resource Department at a local college career fair for students. With the original expectation that conversations would be geared around salary ranges, scheduling, or benefits, I was quite surprised to find out that they were actually more often centered around students being “just curious” because they were not sure what they wanted to do upon graduation, or asking me “Well, why do you like to work at Rhinebeck Bank?” It was at that point I recalled talking to Rhinebeck Bank at the start of my own career, also being introduced at a college fair and thinking the very same thing - younger adults do not know exactly what they want.

Once we get past the, “HEY! You’re the person on that show” moment they usually want to learn more about the Bank. The one thing people always want to know is: Why should I bank at Rhinebeck Bank? Here’s what I tell them:
It’s the time of the year to look back on the past year, reflect on our successes, and find areas where we can improve. While developing your personal resolutions, it is wise to come up with some career resolutions as well.
