Many of you are going to attend the IBPS PO Interview soon. One question that is asked frequently in the interview is ‘Where do you see yourself in Banking Sector after 5 years?’

Nowadays, Banks are raising their work, spreading their branches, working with more intensity because all the banks are getting tough competition.

The retirement of more than 50% of their staff is going on which results in a shortage of employees. Banks are making a huge investment in hiring and training their employees as they are conducting Prelims, Mains and then Interview.

So in a bank interview when interviewers ask this question, they are not looking to hear about your personal or family aspirations but they want to know if you are going to stick in the organisation and grow professionally to solve their problems or not and would it be a worth of the investment they will make in hiring you.

So, this article is focussed to show you exactly how to respond to this question because you need to sincerely impress your interviewer. 

 You can answer in way – 

  • As I will be joining bank within few months. During the 2 years of the probation period, I will learn how to handle customers and will grasp the maximum knowledge of all the products. So, I see myself employed by this bank for the next five years and beyond.

Further, you can add – 

  • After 5 years I would be a trained banker, an asset to the Bank. Most probably a Branch Manager; my seniors would be able to rely on my learnings around our products, processes, and customer relationship skills.

From the above points, you can frame the best answer as per your temperament.

Keep on practicing Mock Interviews and analyze your strengths and weakness.  Do not repeat your mistakes. Be honest don’t try to answer the question which you don’t know.

All the best!
