A bank probationary officer (PO) is one who handles multiple  tasks, from cheque clearance to billing or ­working in the forex section during the probation period. Once ­confirmed, the employee will do routine work related to banking. POs also take on managerial ­responsibilities later.

From insurance, wealth ­management, to merchant ­banking, etc, there are ­numerous opportunities for those ­interested in this field. Today it’s all about innovative banking, therefore, a PO should be able to think out-of-the-box.

Graduates from any stream can apply to a public sector bank as a PO. Every bank recruits its staff through a written test, group discussion and interview.  Hard work, proper planning and execution, communication skills and ability to work under pressure will help a PO get ahead.
