Do's and Don't s of a Successful Bank Interview

Those who have been called for an  Bank Clerk Interview must always bear in mind the most important thing about it – Nobody gets a second chance to make the first impression. Now the questions arise-what should an Interviewee do to make powerful first impression? A candidate has to remember many things in order to emerge victorious in an Interview. There are many Dos and Don’ts.


1). While preparing for an Interview, you should always plan to leave for the Interview always in advance. If your Interview involves travel or you think there might be some change with regard to the timing, get confirmed and make arrangements for arriving at the venue well before time.

2). Before the interview actually begins, you should greet the Interviewers and ask their permission to seat yourself. Thank them for granting you the opportunity, before you get started.

3). Skilled and experienced Interviewers are also experts on body language, so be sure to sit properly i.e always sit upright and maintain a good posture.

4). Always maintain an eye contact with the Interviewer. Always answer their questions looking in their eyes to communicate your thoughts and ideas clearly.

5). Your Interviewers always expect that you have got the required enthusiasm, so you should never miss any opportunity to display your enthusiasm. Have positive attitude towards all the exercise, because it is your attitude that sets the tone for the entire Interview regardless of the time taken. Keep smiling all through and say things like:

(a) “I am excited to be here!”
(b)  “I am thrilled to get interviewed for this opportunity”
(c) “This is exactly what I have been looking for !”


1. Being late is the greatest drawback, so never be late. Always make sure that you understand the local traffic patterns and give yourself plenty of time to arrive at your destination 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. In the case of an unforeseen event, you must call the the concerned office and let your Interviewers know the facts.

2. Getting casual does not get in your favor. Remember the common courtesy to stand until either you are asked to be seated or sit after your host/ Interviewers seat themselves. Do not slouch or lean over when seated.
3. Complaining is a bad habit, therefore avoid it.Good Interviewers pick on everything you say. Each casual reference to heavy traffic, a bad morning or a hectic schedule-all are seen as negatives by the Interview board.

Attire-Related Dos and Don’ts

After these common Dos and Don’ts comes the turn of your attire. Never forget that how to present yourself in an interview is just as important as what you say. An expert has said ---“if you look good, you feel good. If you feel good you will play well. If you play well, you win. The same can hold true for an interview as well.
Actually the image you present carries over to your confidence level and your performance is direct result. Here are some do’s and don’ts about the interview dress.


1). Cloths you wear should fit correctly in other words they should have been recently tailored.

2). Clothes should be already for the occasion i.e. you should get your clothes ready the night before in order to save time that you might have to spend to get ready on the day of the interview.
3). Check if your belt and shoes have any scuff marks and polish them accordingly.
4). Bring a breath mint and use it before you enter the building.


1). Avoid wearing any part of your dress, if you did not use it before this interview.
2). Never wear a brown belt or brown shoes, if you wear a blue suit. If you are a women, you should not wear stiletto heels.
3). Never wear short sleeved shirts with suit, sport coat or tie. In the case of woman, they should never wear a sleeveless blouse, if they intend to take their jackets off.
4). You should go easy on the perfume, after shave or cologne.
