Why don't you ask yourself what you like to do instead? If you don't know much about banking, why would you think of going into operations? Do you know what it entails?

Do you know yourself? Do you know what you like? Do you know what you hate? Are you a person who likes to sell? Do you like to talk to people? Do you like to present to them? Do you hate having to deal with difficult customers? Do you hate to beg (for sales)? Do you hate numbers?

If you don't know these things about yourself, how can you know what you should do?

I do not have a lot of knowledge about banking but I am looking for an operations role at an IB. What are my chances of getting the job?

What are your recommendations about other jobs for my degree besides engineering and government sector jobs? Reading the comments about engineering in this forum, it is quite disheartening and I doubt I want an engineering job.
