Hello My Dear Banking Career Experienced Professional,


Glad to see you approach CareerGuide.com for seeking guidance and advice for your career concern.

I think considering your qualification, present job and years of work experience, I do not feel that you need to under go any other educational course as such. You may be aware that promotions, increments, etc in the government sector including banks happen on years of tenure basis and work performance.

You can definitely look out for another job in publich sector banks or private banks.

I would recommend you to aim for appearing and passing the JAIIB and CAIIB examinations conducted by the Banking department. This route is the best to rise up in your career in your current job. Be open for transfers on promotion, since that is the trend I have seen in government banks where promotions are given on relocation of residence.

I hope you are enjoying with your current job profile. If you are not, try looking out for other departments and also there are internal exams conducted for internal promotion or internal transfers to other department. Basically you need to make your self ready and competent to get into competition and prove your self amongst others.

Employability Skills:

I would also recommend you to brush up your soft skills and technical knowledge. I hope you are reading the latest affairs in the business which gives you the overall knowledge about the economy.

If you are interested in doign a course, I would recommend a course in Treasury Management, which is a niche area.

For knowing your Employabilitiy Index, you can also take CareerGuide.com's Professional Skills Index Pscyhometric Test. This is available for download and can be attempted all by your self at your home. The results will indicate what professional skills you possess and what professional skills you do not possess and on which you need to improve majorly and minorly, etc.

Today apart from technical skills, even in government sector, one requires management skills and soft skills.

Your PGDBM is a very good qualification which needs to be implemented in your day to day work.

I hope you will consider the above aspects and act accordingly.

Please do come back if you need any more information or advice.

All the Best!

I was exactly at that spot at a particular point - working in a nationalized bank, armed with a MMS(Finance) from Symbiosis Institute of Business Management, Pune. I got into a private sector bank from there.

However, individual career paths and personal ambitions differ. If you would like to enter a niche area like Treasury or Risk Management, Investment Banking, then take up those certification courses.

Certified Financial Planner will help, if the wealth management domain interests you.

JAIIB/CAIIB, if you wish to carve a career path in public sector banks.
