IBPS has been one of the most successful organizations in the recent months in giving the Indian job seekers a ray of hope to enter the banks. The public sector banks will be calling up nearly 1 lakh candidates for interview from the list of IBPS clerk passed candidates. The query for IBPS clerk interview pattern and techniques to crack them has been the major concern among the candidates in the recent reports. So, the most effective and best IBPS clerk interview success tips have been bunched up together in this article and presented before the candidates to get most out of the public sector and private sector bank clerical interviews in the coming months.
This report has been made up by some of the successful candidates in
PO and clerical interviews from the major banks. Lets get into the
questions and their definite answers.
Query on how should I present myself in front of the judging panel?
Ans: You should be correct on time and keep an eye
on your documents that they are properly stacked according to preference
or not. It shows a disciplined character of the candidate towards the
panel. Dress up in formals and keep hairs and nails neat and clean. When
you are to enter the room, ask for permission in a calm yet confident
tone. And ask if you can seat when you go in front of them, sit when
they ask you to sit. Calmly be firm and straight in your posture and
look towards everyone when answering their questions. This makes the
judging panel feel that you are confident and ready to answer them. Also
it shows your clarity on the subject and makes them interested towards
you, which is very important for any type of interview.
Ans: The judging panel has an introductory common
question and that is your introduction. Be careful not just to get over
the question and say your normal answer which you have been doing so far
to relatives and people. Be frank and besides your educational and
personal background, say about some sort of achievements that have made
you more regularized and strong as a person. But do not just say I have
achieved this and that, rather say I have been given this award for my
this and that effort. That will make them feel that you are not too much
boasting and you are truly a genious.
Why you have chosen banking career after 10+2 or graduation, why not your related field?
Ans: It will be the most common and mark scoring
question in the coming IBPS clerical 2012 interviews. The IBPS clerk
interview pattern holds the successful key here. Start with saying
like,” I have always seen the potential in the banking sector, be it a
recession or slowdown, banks have always topped the chart in regular
business with no downfall. It also has a great career development
potential that no other industry can provide. I feel that the education I
have achieved so far, more or less I can contribute from my knowledge
to the banking sector and make the personal as well as organizational
mutual development.” This will show the judgment panel that you are
clear cut about your objective and have no hesitations in your aim.
Question about banking and its current affairs:
Ans: There will be some questions on banking
related knowledge and current affairs related to banking. So get over
some books that have current affairs on banking. Kiran’s General Banking
and Economic Awareness is a good book for the clerical bank related
questions. Questions on current RBI regulatory policies, recession and
its affects and the bank on which you are giving interview (related
questions) will be asked. So prepare for these type of questions and
answer fluently. If you cannot say them that you are unable to, but do
not hesitate. That will make a wrong impression of your confidence.
If you are selected, what are your future plans and how that will help the bank growth?
Ans This is also an important question that has
been quite difficult to answer for some people at that instant moment.
Start with, “Sir, because I see the banking sector as the bond of an
individual as well as mutual relationship, it makes a great amount of
sense that cooperation and customer satisfaction will be my top
priority. I will work over customer and official work satisfaction and
also keep an eye on the bank business requirements. I will be more than
happy if I can serve the bank in different roles as and when the need
arise. As I will be commited purely on my work and organization business
needs, I think bank will grow more than the expectations with proper
mutual cooperation. Not only it will serve the purpose of bank business
growth, but will also develop my working skills and personal attitude.
