Key advice

"Since most of the national and international banks have widened their area of operation in India, while writing your resume, accentuate your banking and finance background. If you are looking for a junior level position, highlight any cashier jobs or other work experience handling money. Scour the classified ads in newspapers. Look in the classifieds of your local paper in your area. Check under the categories of banking, finance and accounting to find banking jobs. Apply directly with banks in your neighbourhood. Banks will usually take applications even if they do not have a position currently open. Go directly to the bank and ask if it′s possible for you to fill out an application. They can keep it on file, in case a position opens up that meets your needs and qualifications."
