Bank recruitment refers to hiring efficient and deserving candidates for various posts in a bank. Bank industry is highly flourishing in today's times and requires good and skillful personnel to carry out various functions in the bank. Just like every field has various commissions appointed or bodies to conduct exams, the major recruitments in the banking sector are carried out by Institute of Banking Personnel (IBPS). This organization has been recruiting capable candidates for years now, and every year introduces new strategies to improve the recruitment procedure. This year, in 2011, it has come up with a new plan of conducting bank exams for the clerical posts and posts for bank po. There are 19 public sector banks involved in this exam, known as the Common Written Exam (CWE).

The CWE refers to a common exam that will be conducted by IBPS. It would be a platform for large-scale recruitment of personnel’s for bank po post and other clerical posts in the banks. There are 19 public sector banks who decided to volunteer for this exam. These banks are connected to IBPS and trust its recruitment strategies. IBPS has always been known for its efficient use of modernized technology and western models for the recruitments. It not merely recruits the individuals through outsourcing but also trains those, making them realize their potential and choosing the right job for them. Forms and syllabus material for the exam has been published earlier in this year, 2011. Candidates in strengths of thousands have already enrolled themselves for CWE. There have been many responses for CWE; some candidates consider it as a golden opportunity to exhibit their talent and skill on such a large platform where they can gain entry into 19 most prestigious public sector banks of India.

However, there are some people who are unsure about such a large scale recruitment programme, and are doubtful about the efficiency of IBPS to carry out such a big role and recruit individuals based purely on their talent. Thus, there have been mixed reactions and since it is the first time, such a strategy has been introduced in the banking sector, gaining the trust of the people will be a task for IBPS.

The CWE (2011) thus would be like any other bank exam where you will have to answer questions from the syllabus provided to you. Current affairs would also be the focus of the question paper. The candidates who score high in this exam will be appointed for bank po posts and other clerical posts, if any vacancy arrives in the 19 public sector banks involved.
