For many candidates, appearing for a bank job interview is tougher than writing the online exam.Their biggest fear is not in meeting senior officials but on answering some tricky questions – for which they start to fumble.To avoid such situations, BankExamsIndia.com has been analyzing some make-or-break type of questions to help you get prepared in advance.
One common question asked in bank interviews nowadays is:
Why did you choose to join a bank.
There are several variants to the same question.If a candidate is from engineering or management or medical background, the same question will be asked like this –
Why choose banking sector after BE/ BTech/ ME/ MBA/ B.Pharm etc
Almost 90% of the candidates are being asked this question as graduates from other streams are applying for bank jobs.
So if you have any bank or insurance oriented interview coming up, then it is necessary to prepare on how to answer this question.
What they Expect:
Be prepared with your points as this question may lead into a discussion with other panelists also joining in with how`s, why`s & what`s.
How to Answer:
The first requirement – Be bold.
- Make you answer looks realistic & at the same time conveys your willingness to join their bank.
- Don't bluntly say ‘I did not get any other job’ or ‘There is high stress & pressure in private companies’. You would be countered with more questions.
- If questioned about BE graduates opting for IT jobs, mention about the uncertain future of software companies compared to the high growth witnessed in banking industry.
- You can even emphasize about the opportunity created by huge vacancies in banks that could lead young performers to reach top posts within short span of time, which is absent in other fields.
- Let them know that your engineering degree would help in interacting with customers from a similar business while lending loans & fetching deposits.
The above list is only a guidance & not definite nor complete.You have to frame the right sentences for interview questions – to portray your answer as a compelling one, that the interviewer must agree.
