Sumit : Hi sir, goodafternoon. Would like to know will be the new opportunities that will emerge in the BFSI sector in 2020? How promising it will be for the freshers?
Mr. Tushar: Hi Sumit, BFSI sector in India is the sunrise industry. There will multiple opportunities for aspirants especially in the Banking and Insurance sectors. Freshers, in particular will have a huge scope in jobs in wealth management, automation and sales in particular.
Jiva: Greetings sir, Will BFSI sector emerge as the highest paying employer as compared to IT sector. What is the average hike people will witness this year?
Mr. Tushar: Hi Jiva, i would not see these as separate identities. Just under a decade back, Banks used to have ‘digital’ as an offering. This has now moved to the core of what they do. Not sure about the they being the highest but they will certainly be competitive given the dearth of talent.
