Questions asked from Engineers in IBPS interviews

Hello readers as you know that IBPS PO interviews are going on and clerk interviews will begin in February. So here I am suggesting some answers for a very common question for engineers that why do you want to join bank after your engineering? The main purpose of the interviewers behind this question is to analyze the interest of the candidate in banking services. Do not memorise any answer buy I suggest you to make a good answer for this question by using these suggestions. And believe me they will definitely ask you this if you are an engineer.

So here are some good answers-

  • Sir, banking is nothing but technology these days. ATM, CBS, Internet banking, Mobile banking and many more technologies have made banking synonyms with technology. So I think that being a technocrat it will be really comfortable for me to work in such a technical environment. 
  • Sir, engineering not only developed my technical skills but also my analytical ability. In engineering, I organised many events and so it has given me a leadership quality also. It also developed my communication skills. So I think due to engineering, I have that quality in me that I can provide better customer service. 
  • Sir, when I started my engineering then IT was a booming sector. But meanwhile, we saw due to recession IT sector has lost its shine. So I thought that it is no more a safe sector to work in. And because of my interest in a stable and socially respectful job, I decided to go for banking.


You can include the points of your choice in your answer. I am here providing some key features of banking services-

1. Stability (do not use secure, say it is a stable job)

2. Growth (you can tell them about the promotions and the exams conducted by Indian Institute of Banking and Finance like JAIIB and CAIIB)

3. Fast and fair selection process (no political interference).

4. Neat and clean job (no political pressure).

5. Pay and perks (like different facilities- accommodation, fuel for car, cheaper loans, LTC/LFC, newspaper and much more)

6. Socially respectable job.

So these were some of the points that can help you in answering this definite question for engineers. I hope this article will help you. These are my views and I also took help from some interview experiences of candidates. You may or may not agree with these.

Thanks and regards,
Nikhil Bhardwaj
