This article is dedicated to the IT Officer. In fact you all might have understood the role of IT Officer as the name itself suggests. So friends, IT Officer is someone who will take care of the IT Operations of the bank. It is considered as one of the challenging jobs in banking sector and the best part of this job is that in this, there will be no public dealing. The IT Officer will need to take care of all issues related to software, hardware, servers, database, networking etc. In short, he will be doing all the tasks related to IT.
But the question remain intact that how to get selected? Now the time has gone when people used to say that go for hard work. Now is the time when you have to adopt and implement smart work tactics.

Friends, for Reasoning, English, Quantitative Aptitude you can practice daily quizzes but for professional knowledge, you will have to refer your syllabus books and previous year practice papers. This is the only way you can have an edge. In fact, you can practice online speed tests regularly before the exam. Last year the paper was a bit difficult and students have struggled to achieve the marks. And the trend will be the same this year as well. Well we will have to wait till the time IBPS open their cards. But whatever is in your hand, just make sure you don’t lose it.
