Youth seeking career in banking can now learn on the go with a click on their smartphone. TalentSprint has launched two nation-wide initiatives that will help youth to prepare for banking careers. The company has launched a BankersChoice mobile app for Android smartphones to facilitate social learning and for the Hindi speaking population, a Hindi content programme has also been developed.
These initiatives are part of its disruptive BankersChoice product line that offers 100 per cent virtual, self-service learning options that are highly convenient and affordable. Shantanu Paul, MD and CEO of TalentSprint said, “With deep penetration of smartphones among the youth not only in metros but also in tier-2 and tier-3 locations, and given the increasing consumption of mobile and social content by Gen Y and Gen Z, the BankersChoice mobile app offers job seekers an engaging format in line with their learning style preferences. The objective is to provide access to a world-class virtual platform that offers non-metro learners all the same advantages as their metro counterparts.”
The BankersChoice mobile app offers features such as flash quizzes to help improve speed and accuracy, expert tutorial videos, challenge and response options, and leader boards. The app is a daily workout to hone skills and enable continuous learning, and is available for free download on Google Play.
Sridhar K, Senior Vice President, Online Services, further added, “Public Sector Banks recruit fresh talent for the post of Clerks, Probationary Officers and Specialist Officers through various entrance exams (IBPS and SBI) and are expected to recruit over 5 lakhs fresh graduates over the next 5 years. The BankersChoice online programme’s launch of its Hindi content is an important step towards meeting the career aspirations of the Hindi speaking population competing for these jobs. Over 66 per cent of our students are from non-metro locations which encouraged us to develop the special Hindi content programme.”
