How to start IBPS Clerk Interview Preparations

Published on Wednesday, January 07, 2015
First of all congratulations to all those readers who have cracked IBPS Clerk IV written exam. Many of you might have never appeared for any PSU bank interview. 

What an interviewer is looking for (Ordered on the basis of importance) :-

  • Stable
  • Needy
  • Hard-working
  • Flexible
  • Knowledgeable
Let me explain you each of the point one by one,

Stable and Needy

Many people don't find bank job interesting. They quit their job with in a year. During the first year of employment, bank spends on fresh employee on their training. So during first year, employees are paid for training, What if employees leave his/her job exactly after a year, there will be huge loss to bank. Bank need to repeat the recruitment process and then again train the new employee.

No bank want to repeat recruitment process again and again. So while recruitment, this is the main factor that is considered.

Lets assume that I am the Interviewer, On the D-day you dressed well and I asked you various personal questions and I feel that this person won't do a Bank clerk job for long time. He is wasting my time.

Reject him.

If you were also rejected in the interview although all your answers were correct. Reason behind your failure was - Interviewer felt that you actually don't need the job.

Seriousness is more important than Knowledge here.

A Stable and Needy person is always Hard-working, it's a Fact!!


Yes you heard it right. This is the least important thing, that's why many candidates are rejected om the basis of personal questions. It's a Clerk interview, not much adanced knowldge is expected from you. They want you to work hard and that too for a long time.

Basic questions about banking will be asked. There is list of 100-120 concepts that are repeated in every banking interview. 

If you are a engineering background candidates then get ready for Banking questions because nobody is going to ask you questions about engineering. Although during Specialist Officers interview questions related to core subjects are asked, but questions asked here are really basic.


Let's make it short. Whenever an interviewer ask you for whether you will join if you get a posting out of your state ?

Answer should be always a BIG YES!
