    I have doubt in applying IBPS clerk. I have certificate in computer, so i entered yes and below it there is an option called "do you have experience." I have 5 years experience in Medical Transcription. whether they are asking my work experience or computer experience?. As I am doing Medical Transcription, it is full of computer related work.

    Plz clear my doubt by going thru "Apply Online" form.

    1. If your Medial Transcription is related to computers you can add that in your experience Friend. I mean, just mention the 5 years experience. And be prepared to answer the question "why you've left your job after 5 years" (they will ask you at the time of interview....

    2. UPDATE :

      @ SUmit Raj: According to my sister, its better to give your exam from your Native state only. As she belongs to Tamilnadu but applied Puducherri as her centre (because its nearer to her town), but she got problems at the time of interview. In her Score card, they mentioned that the state applied as Pondicherry.... Due to this mistake she suffered alot. So better choose the state from where you want to work.

    1. For recruiting clerks, they will only consider your score in the written exam and interviews Sunny. Your CA wont help you there. But it may helpful for you to get promotions easily.

      And why dont you try for a core job as CA? because now a days CA's have good opportunities in society with good salaries. So we suggest you to try for it, if you cant you can go for banking later.

      All The Best :)
