Increase Of Opportunities In The Banking Sector
Banks play a major role in recruiting the people in a large number. Banking is a very attractive and safer career to choose. India’s largest bank, SBI and other Public Sector banks are recruiting more number of people every year. That too in the last two years, the bank recruitments are increased tremendously and people also show their immense interest towards it.
The 20 Public sector banks seek the help of IBPS (Institute of Banking Personnel Selection) to conduct the exams. But, SBI and its other associate banks do not come under this. It conducts exams separately and declares the result.
The recruitment procedure is mostly common for all bank exams. Exams for different cadres in banks are conducted separately. The recruitments are done for the posts of clerks, Specialist officer and Probationary Officer in a large number.
For every exam, the candidate has to satisfy the required qualifications. Those who are satisfying the requirements are allowed to apply online and asked to take a print out of that. After that, they are called for the written examination. Usually for clerks and specialist officer, the exams are conducted for 200 marks; in addition to that, it also includes descriptive type for PO.
The exams are conducted in online mode and those who have cleared the exams are called for the interview. Successful candidates are intimated through mail and printed score cards with their obtained marks are also sent to them. After passing the interview session, they are appointed in the regions according to the marks.
In case of IBPS recruitment, they are asked to prioritize the banks and appointment is based on the merit alone. The validity of score card issued by them has the validity of one year only. And also the exams are conducted once in a year.
