IBPS usually releases calendar during the start of every year. This gives ample time for you to prepare well. You know, there have been thousands of vacancies in the last four to five years. However, the competition is growing due to several reasons including
- Less hiring in other sectors for freshers
- Lack of placements due to the slowdown in IT sector.
We have been observing the bank aspirants for several years now. The picture is quite different these days. Nowadays, apart from graduates from arts and sciences, a lot of engineering students do write bank exams. As mentioned earlier, bank opportunities have become more reliable than software jobs these days. This means the competition is going to high. However, competition will be offset to some extent due to a large number of vacancies being created. Hence, if you work hard starting today, you will increase your chances to secure your dream career.
All the very best!
