Things to consider to before choosing your preference for IBPS PO 2017:

Transfers

Usually if a bank has more branches, the frequency of the candidates getting transferred is more. Therefore, if you aren’t looking for frequent transfers, choose accordingly. Those who are comfortable with frequent transfers, some banks allow you to choose the place of posting, however some don’t; some banks post you in rural as well as urban areas and some post you only in urban areas. Therefore, we suggest you go through transfer policies of banks before choosing your preference.



Salary structure, promotion policies and work culture

Most banks follow similar salary structure, and promotion policies and have similar responsibilities for probationary officers. However, there are slight variations in them. For instance, getting posted in rural areas could mean lesser HRA than those posted in urban areas or metros. This could impact your gross salary.

We suggest you talk to employees working in these banks and get an honest feedback before deciding your preference list. Ask them about the work culture, promotion policies, and career growth.



Note: We suggest you don’t consider vacancies while deciding your preference list. Regardless of the vacancies, you will be allotted based on your merit and preference. The banks that haven’t yet reported the vacancies (NR) and the banks that have said they have no vacancies (NIL), could at any time during the recruitment process announce their vacancies.

Suppose a bank you want to work with has not reported vacancies and you place this bank lower in your preference list. If the bank announces its vacancies before you get placed, there are chances you will get placed in a bank which you placed higher up in your preference list and not the bank you want to work with, even though you have cleared that banks cut off.

Therefore, we suggest you to not base your preference on vacancies and regret it later. Consider the location/region of the bank, work culture, transfer policies, etc.



In the end, the allotment will be based on your preference, overall marks in mains and interview. However, preference list plays a major role in your allotment too. Therefore, decide your preference order after careful consideration of the above parameters.

Note: The above tips and strategy on how to choose your bank preference is only a guideline and doesn’t reflect any kind of bias or bank preference or priority order. Use this only as a guideline to arrive at your own preference list of banks.


All the best!
