How many Clerk Jobs in 2016?
This is one question constantly asked by aspirants after every exam to analyze their chances.
Following the release of IBPS clerk prelims results, the chorus will only grow high.However the following shall set things straight.
Over the past years, banks have been consistently creating approximately 30,000 vacancies in the clerical cadre.
But the year 2016 shall see only 28,000 – 30,000 clerk vacancies as there seems to be some slowdown in hiring.A reduction in PO jobs is also expected.
The bank-wise & state-wise list of clerk jobs shall be declared only after the interviews.
