  • In case, you are having the banking experience of around five to six years, it would not be difficult for you to have a job in a foreign bank but you need to follow the following steps so as to land a job of your choice in a foreign bank-
    1) First of all, you need to write the Banking Service Examination and if your performance in the said examination is impressive, you can have a job in the SBI branch and later you can move on to a SBI branch of a foreign country of your choice since SBI has branches in almost all the foreign countries.
    2) By doing your job in SBI, look out for the vacancy in a foreign country for which you are interested. Remain in contact with your higher officials, they will help you in landing a job in the SBI branch located in foreign of your choice.
    3) Thereafter, you will have to face an interview with a foreign bank while still working in your SBI branch in a foreign country and show your best talents while the interview session is going on,
    4) Alternative way is to look out the chances of your absorption in Bank of America, Standard Charted Bank or any foreign bank located in India and then seek a link internally for the overseas job. It is somewhat a difficult path in the sense that you have to be a top performer so as to get the job of a foreign bank.
