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.
