Before readin these questuions must read

Introduce yourself in one minute 

This is the most important question for any interview. You need understand the most important skill, interest or hobby of you that makes you different and that help you to the job you are applied in a better way.

Meaning of your name, who named you and why? 

Google it!

What is your father and his job profile? 

Now that’s an important question. Till now you were living on your father’s income. His income decided your standard of living. If your father is a businessman or a big farmer then interview may doubt that you won’t join or you won’t be serious.

They will ask why don’t you join your father. “I am not interested “ is a bad answer.

Better answer to this question is - My father ordered me to do job in a Bank because he think it’s better.

Where do you come from? 

Do you know who is Mayor of you city or MP from your constituency. 

If NO is your answer then read more about your town, city and state. You should know the name of your State’s governor, state ministers, MPs, number of districts, neighboring states and it is famous for what etc. 

What are your hobbies and interest? 

Please avoid Internet surfing, chatting etc here. 

A better answer is - Playing cricket, football or anything that won’t disturb the job.

If you do not succeed this time, what will you do? 

I will appear for another exam. Like SBI , NICL, SSC, LIC etc.

Tell me something about your achievements? 
Have you ever done something that makes you stand out of the crowd. 

If the answer is yes then it's your achievement.
