  • What I feel the chances for you to get a government job depends on your age. You have not mentioned your age. If your age is less than 28, you have chances to get a government job. The chances will be more if you have any reservation. The age limit also will increase. Many bank jobs are getting advertised in newspapers. You can search by online also. There is a paper(weekly) especially for publishing government jobs by name Employment News. You purchase that paper every week and apply for the jobs which are suitable for you. While applying for the jobs continue your studies. The chances of getting a government job depend on your performance and facing the interview. please try with utmost interest. You will be successful. Try to improve your General Knowledge and aptitude skills so that you can shine in your entrance tests. All the best to you.

  • Mr. Pandey: You are 27 years of age and I suppose you belong to General (Unreserved) category. So, you can apply for different jobs in Railway. In most of the cases, the age-limit for recruitment in Railways for General category is 30 years or more. So, you will definitely get at least three years to appear in different recruiting examinations conducted by RRBs.
    So far as different recruiting examinations of RRBs are concerned, you can definitely apply after completing your Graduation. Under normal circumstances, no further qualification is necessary. Regular and methodical practice within the time-limit is necessary.

    Come on, have a fight. Don't shoot and scoot.

  • You are in your final year of Third Year BSc in IT with 5 years of telecom and finance experience.
    Railways generally have recruitment from Group A to Group- D. Railways some times have a clause for working in the Railways Engineering Units of Territorial Army. Please check that when you narrow down your job application.

    The railway recruitment is via UPSC for Group A and RRB (Railway Recruitment Board) for group C posts.Group B posts are often filled in by Group C promotions. In Indian Railways a minimum graduation is eligible for recruitment for most jobs.

    UPSC exams for Group A posts are under the following

    1.Civil Services Examination for

    Once you look under the various heading mentioned above, you would be able to understand better. Most Railways jobs have a high level of competition. Authenticity of documents especially degrees, caste and age are mandatory. Most again need medical examination/ check-ups. Good luck

  • If you are interested in railway job then you have to apply for appropriate category through UPSC as per your qualification.
    As you have experience in telecom industry, after your BSc-IT you can try in many private companies in this area. You have to keep a track of various advertisements in need papers and job portals in internet.
