Quoting the findings from a recently published ASSOCHAM report, speakers at a workshop said that there would be 8 lakh job vacancies in the banking sector in the next six years.

“This trend indicates that the public sector is helping the unemployed youth whereas private sector has badly been hit by the economic slowdown,” they said.

Addressing the workshop conducted by the New Delhi-based coaching institute on ‘How to crack IBPS Bank POs and SSC Exams’, Career Launcher (Tirupati) Director N. Sridhar said that if the aspirants wanted to qualify for the exams they should focus on the English section which has more weightage.
