What the interviewer look for in an interviewee ?

Reacting to a situation
Talk about Banking – what the interviewer seeks for is a person who is flexible to be along with the given timings, someone who can cope up with writing bits and bobs or a person who can benefit them with more development .Your answer can have following bulleted points.
>>Banking is a fast changing environment
>>Retail banking is now very competitive – from telephone banking, retailers and etc Banking is thus now largely sales driven.
>>You can even talk about IT getting changes and clearing banks offers a wide range of career opportunities for graduates – not just in branch banking but also in financial services, consultancy and corporate banking.
Have you applied to any other areas apart from banking?
Here off course your answer will hold some other finance or sales and marketing careers – insurance or accountancy, altogether these careers should have skills related to banking.
Tell me about an experience in which you had to use tact?
Tact and diplomacy are important qualities in retail banking – the customer is (almost!) always right. You may have to tell an account holder diplomatically why they can’t have a loan for example, without provoking them into moving their account elsewhere.

You will have talked to people about the employer, you will have been reading trade magazines, journals and newspapers, and you will have poured over company brochures, annual reports or anything else you can get your hands on direct from the employer.
You could talk about tele-banking, the limited range of services now being offered by the supermarket banks, the effects of technology and competition and much more.
