With bank jobs emerging as one of the safest career option & many candidates looking for info on upcoming bank jobs -we at Bankexamsindia.com look at some eligibility conditions put forth by banks.


Why prepare: Organizations look for candidates who posses the required skill set for a specific job.It not only helps companies to filter applicants but also minimize their costs in training them.Similarly, banks have set various eligibility conditions such as computer knowledge in addition to regular educational qualifications.


Computer knowledge necessary: In India, almost all public & private sector banks have networked their branches by computers (core banking solutions) with the aim of providing faster & efficient services to common people.

  • Through this platform, employees can access customer`s information from any branch in India & perform transactions related to account such as withdrawals, deposits etc., all at the touch of a button.
    • for example, a person having an account in Delhi branch can remit or request money from the same bank in Chennai.
  • All files, documents & records are maintained in computer systems.To retrieve them, you must atleast know the basic operations of computing like file search, open and save.

Do I need certificate or not: Most advertisements for jobs in banks have started to mention computer skills as an essential requirement to be eligibile for applying.


Although certificate in computer course is expected – it is not necessary for those who have studied computers in college.


* If you have not had computer science as part of degree/school subject - a certificate of proficiency in computer operations (MS-Office,Windows etc.) from a recognized training institute is compulsory.


By possessing the essential qualifications beforehand, you would have an edge over others while applying -  as 80000 bank jobs are to be created within 2013.
