4 Notable Aspects Of Union Bank Canara Bank And Central Bank Of India Recruitment

Jobs in the banking sector have managed to become one of the favourites among the people in India, who are seeking employment. Plethora of reasons is working in favour of such a trend these days. Reasonable salaries, favourable working hours, and the job satisfaction that is attained in such jobs have been major reasons for the large number of applicants who are applying for the written test and interviews. In India, which is proving to be a potential market for various banking activities, many private banks have started their operations. But the majority of candidates are seeking employment in the government run and aided banks.

Public sector banks in the country have been in demand by the aspirants of banking jobs. In this regard, public sector banks like Union Bank, Central Bank of India and Canara Bank have been recruiting candidates in several thousands of number, in posts of clerks, probationary officers and specialist officers.

1. For the purpose of Union Bank recruitment, since 2011, there has been the introduction of Common Written Exam or CWE by the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection or IBPS. This test is a single test that is being conducted for recruitment into 19 participating public sector banks of India.

2. After qualifying in the written exam, with a certain Total Weighted Score, people will have to apply for the individual bank as and when its vacancies are advertised. Since the TWS is valid for a period of one year, candidates have enough time to go for the banks of their choice. For those, who are aiming for the Central Bank of India recruitment, they will have to apply with the application fee for the clerical or PO posts, when the vacancies are published. The same goes true for the Canara Bank recruitment, which is also be awaited by the interested candidates.

3. Whichever the bank that people are interested in, they will have to look out for the education qualification, which again is different for the PO posts and for the clerical jobs. For most of the banks, the applicants for the PO jobs should have passed graduation degrees from a recognised university or should have secured a minimum of 60{8460524073cbcd784abb686a73e6e7d1d94285b04e887230132b08c8f3a82e5c} marks in the SSC level. For the clerical posts, one should have secured 55{8460524073cbcd784abb686a73e6e7d1d94285b04e887230132b08c8f3a82e5c} marks in the 10+2 level. But, people should still look out for the advertisements for the bank recruitments because these criteria could differ from one bank to another.

4. The age limit for clerical posts is usually from 18 years to 28 years while that for the probationary officer posts is 20 year to 30 years. This again should be checked out when the recruitment notice is published. It is only if the eligibility criteria are fulfilled that the candidates are called for interview, even though they might be having the TWS above the cut off mark.

Since the exam for recruitment into the public sector banks has been taken over by the IBPS from 2011, there has been a great advantage for the interested candidates because they now have to appear in a single entrance exam. Depending on the posts for which the candidates are putting in their applications, they will have to meet the eligibility criteria and fulfil the eligibility criteria accordingly, in order to get through the exams for a prospective future.
