MBA student says, “One must know finance terms when appearing for banking recruitment interviews” 

Amay Shukla, a student of Apeejay School of Management, recently bagged a job offer with HDFC Bank.



“I have always been interested in marketing, and as India is walking on the path of becoming a $5 trillion economy by 2025, therefore the banking sector will play a big role in this growth. And hence, there will be a lot to learn, experience and grow professionally in future,” opines  Amay Shukla, a student of Apeejay School of Management (ASM). Amay has recently bagged a high-paying job offer with HDFC Bank. The Apeejay student is pursuing his final year of Post-Graduate Diploma in Management, specialising in the field of marketing and international business.

Role of college 

Amay emphasises that in this journey of understanding and learning about the entire marketing field, ASM has played a vital role and acted as a driving force in achieving the goals he had set for himself. “Apeejay changed my attitude and perception towards a lot of things. I am deeply grateful and shall give full credit to my professors and my mentors. I would also thank them for the help and guidance they gave me each day, which helped me get clarity of thoughts and make right decisions during my college days,” the Apeejay student mentioned. 

His teachers and mentors have always been there for him at every point of time. He added, “I still remember there was a time when I was struggling on a few topics of my interests, and even though holidays were going on , my teachers never refused to help me on account of the same and were always ready with an answer for all my doubts.”

Is it important to know banking terminologies? 

“We must understand the general common questions which can be asked in any bank recruitment interviews such as what does you know about the bank you are applying for, its requirement for the on-going recruitment, the criteria of recruitment, etc., and should be prepared with bank history, capital size, positions, services provided, financial news, domestic and global market, world economy and financial updates,” he emphasised.

Tips for aspirants

“An in-depth knowledge of the institute/company/organisation will boost your confidence,” he stressed, further adding that one should always prepare questions related to his/her experience and hobbies mentioned in the resume. “Be yourself and be confident,” he concluded.
