Careers in banking, insurance



I want to pursue career in Banking. Please provide some information on how I can begin my career a public sector bank. Are there institutes that offer courses related to Banking?


The recruitment process of public sector banks includes competitive examination followed by an interview. Several public sector banks, regional rural banks and cooperative banks recruit personnel, based on the performance of candidates in the competitive examinations conducted by the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection.

Institute of Banking Personnel Selection is an autonomous body set up by the banking industry to cater to its recruitment needs. 19 banks including Bank of Baroda, Andhra Bank, Canara Bank and Allahabad Bank recruit probationary clerks, probationary officers and specialist officers based on performance of candidates in competitive examinations conducted by the institute.

However, RBI and SBI conduct separate examinations for recruitment for their banks.

To begin your career in the banking industry, you can take one of the competitive examinations, based on your academic background and aspirations.


The eligibility criterion for probationary clerks and probationary officers is a Bachelor’s degree. The first stage of recruitment process, the online written test, is objective type. The questions are aimed at assessing candidates on areas like reasoning, English, numerical ability, general awareness and computer knowledge.

Candidates who clear this test are called for interview.

To be eligible to take the specialist officer examination, you should attain a degree in the specific specialist field.

For instance, graduates in Agriculture are eligible to apply for Agriculture Field Officer and graduates in Law can apply for Law officer.

Coming to courses that complement career in Banking, you con consider one of the following:

To be selected by a bank, you have to meet the eligibility criteria it specifies and successfully clear its recruitment process.

Another course that can improve your prospects in the banking sector is MBA in Banking.
