Bank job, for some, is the lure of a stable government job, while for some it is a matter of prestige for being a bank officer. Whatever be the reason, in the next few years, it is largely expected for several bank job vacancies and many aspirants preparing to compete for the same.

There are several rather many coaching centres coming up at every nook and corner of a city, and with big promises. A few of them might be good, but most of them have nothing special to back up their claims. The only thing that helps you is your hard work and your calibre.

Here we share with you some career guidance tips for the bank aspirants.

Prepare For IBPS and SBI Exams at Home

This preparation is not a very difficult task, provided you are sincere.

Why not go to coaching institutes?

  • Some institutes are there which claims that they can help you in materializing your dreams. They share names and images of students who have secured seats in bank exams in previous years. Here we share some thought.

  • Some coaching centres are good. But most of the good ones have brilliant students enrolling with them and easily cleared the exam, even if it wasn’t for the coaching center. Statistics could be misleading, an institute must have 600 candidates but it ranks has only 10 candidates who succeeded, they will never show you the rest 590 who did not succeed, but the 10 who secured positions.

  • Also, if a candidate studies at an institute, left in middle, due to whatever reasons and then got selected, will also be mentioned in the advertisements by the institutes. Did you notice that the toppers of CBSE exams are shown in the advertisements of almost every institute in the city?

Suppose you didn’t take our advice and enrolled in a coaching institute, then you have to pay a good fee. And if you happen to stay at a hostel or as a rent, your expenditure is just double or triple without any assurance that you will succeed.

Their assurance on selection is – 100%* (*with conditions applied)

Just ask yourself, why to go for something which applies condition before providing service?

The only thing which decides whether you crack the bank exams is your efforts and calibre.
