  • From your query, it is not clear whether you are pursuing some technical diploma course or engineering. Anyway in both the cases opportunities are there through competition is also very high. Assuming that you are pursuing a technical diploma the details are as below.

    For diploma holders, there are opportunities in Indian Army, Indian Railways and many PSUs like MRPL, IOC, SAIL, NMDC, BEL, GAIL, HPCL, BHEL etc. Generally, there will be posts like a junior engineer or technical assistants advertised by these companies. Apart from these, there are some posts in technical lines which are advertised in state-level Govt departments which generally are advertised in local newspapers.

    You have to keep a watch on job portals and newspapers to see something interesting to you as a career. You can focus in that particular line and prepare for its entrance test or interview whatever the case may be.

    Knowledge is power.

  • If you have given your location and exact meaning of technical field (B.E or B.Tech or any other), I would have given some insights more precisely. But there will be many government jobs available for graduates with the technical degree. Some of the jobs I am listing below are some government institutions/organizations which have openings for technical departments every year.

    1. Banking sector (State Bank of India, Punjab National bank etc).
    2. Railway Boards.
    3. Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI).
    4. Union Public Service Commission (UPSC).
    5. Power Grid Corporations of the respective states.
    6. National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT).
    7. CSIR - National Physical Laboratory.
    8. Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL)

    These are just a few of the vast number of government organizations that provide employment to many technical people. All you need to do is follow the respective sites and also pursue a job which interests you. You still have time to finish your graduation, study hard and get a good percentage. There are many government organizations which provide training/fellowship along with stipend so that you can climb higher in your career.

  • There are many opportunities for technical people to get government jobs. The first and the foremost step you have to take is appearing for GATE examination and getting a good score.
    These days many government sector companies and undertakings are going by your GATE score to offer you the job.
    You will have jobs in R&D field. The following are some of the best R&D organisation in the government sector.
    Defence Research and Development Organisation(DRDO),
    Indian space research organisation(ISRO),
    Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR),
    Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC)
    All the organisation go for open recruitment and they will have their own method of selection. They may conduct a written test, then group discussion and then technical interview. So while studying you should improve your language skills, presentation skills and debating skills. They will help you in making a good impression in the selection process.
    There are many government undertakings like ONGC, GAIL, NFC, ECIL, BHEL. HAL and so on. They will also take many graduate Engineer trainees. Here your GATE score may help you in getting selected.
    There are many other avenues like IAS, IPS and other central government jobs which are being given purely basing on your performance.
    Similarly, each state government will have some laboratories under their jurisdiction and there are also you will be eligible to get a job.
    The key to obtaining a government job these days mainly depends on your ability in your core subject, general awareness, reasoning and aptitude. Develop good knowledge in your core subject and get the other skills. Then the chances for you are very high to get a government job.
    Your success in procuring a government job will enhance if you get a better percentage of your degree and best score in GATE. Aim for the best and all the best to you.

  • Whether you are pursuing an engineering degree or diploma course, there are ample opportunities in various Govt departments like defence sector, railways and various PSUs.

    At the state level also recruitment in many technical categories is done on a regular basis.

    Please remember that you have the advantage of applying against none technical posts also which a candidate having qualifications in humanities does not have.

    You can see which particular career line you have aptitude and interest and accordingly give thrust in that area.

    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.

  • It would be great if you could share what course you have undertaken like whether you are in electronic and communication field/ mechanical /software etc.

    You can have a look at the below organization official websites for job vacancy /recruitment notifications, qualification and eligibility criteria

    1. Bharat Electronics Limited
    2. Dept of Indian Space Research Organization
    3. All Defence Research and Development Organisation
    4. Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology
    5. ONGC
    7. ITI Limited

    There are many such to name. You can further look state wise for the different institutions or organizations.

  • There are enough scopes for the graduate - engineers having secured at least 65 percent average marks in all the semesters. The candidates will be screened first on the basis of their scorings and finally they are are the intimated to appear for the written test comprising two papers - the first paper being - GK, Reasoning and Mathematical - ability taught generally in the graduation level and the second paper deals with the stream which an aspirant chooses in one's engineering - session.
    A thorough concept of one's stream along with sound familiarity with the GK, Reasoning and Cracking the numerical problems would lead to success in the Graduate - trainees organised by Public Undertakings such as SAIL, DVC, ONGC, NTPC etc.
    These days Public undertakings are looking for the Graduate - engineers having qualified GATE with an impressive percentile in the final examination and such candidates are offered two additional increments in the pay - structure offered to the Graduate - engineers.
    Hence an attempt must be made to qualify GATE with a grand scoring normally exceeding 97 and above so as to get a seat in the Public Undertaking Sectors.
    You will be eligible for the jobs of R&D in Atomic Energy Commission, ISRO etc but for that you have to show your potential before the Interview - board.
    In addition to the jobs listed above, you may appear for IES, IAS and other Banking - examinations to be absorbed as Probationary officers.
    Supposing that you are a diploma - holder in the different branch of Engineering, you will be absorbed either as a Junior - engineer/ Supervisor in different undertakings like SAIL, BSNL, BEL, ONGC etc provided you have secured the minimum marks so as to eligible for the said post and an honest labour would be required to clear such tests conducted by the organisations.

  • We need to know you are in your second year or B.Tech,B.E or Diploma in a technical field.

    There is a wide range of jobs available for technical graduates post qualification but there is a stiff competition for the jobs. You need to have a basic plan, are you going to join a job after your graduation and then think about a masters program?

    Basically, you need to plan for all the major competitive exams that will give you a chance to get into the Government sectors. The GATE exams need at least a bachelor's degree or 3 years after Diploma in Engineering.

    1.The best chance is to try hard for a campus placement, this gives you the first break to get a job wherein the competition is limited. You need to have good scores and have a sound grasp of aptitude, reasoning, analytical and reasoning ability.

    2. The next best chances come in the form of being successful in the competitive exams
    a.Civil Services Exams-UPSC
    b.Indian Engineering Service-IES
    c.Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering-GATE
    d.Defence service Common Admission Test (CAT)
    e.Banking Industry - IBPS
    f.Staff selection commission. SSC
    g.Railway board exams - RRB, RRB-JE
    h.Defence research - DRDO

    3.You can consider teaching jobs if you have a flair for teaching. If you complete your masters, you can appear for the UGC-NET and then apply for assistant professor teaching posts.You can think about CSIR NET in a mathematical science or Physical science etc.

    4.Some graduates or diploma holders, instead of wasting too much time hunting for a job, take up an apprentice post in a large PSU ( BHEL,BEL, IOC, Power Grid, HAL etc) (https://www.enggwave.com/category/apprentice-jobs) and then work their way up with some experience on their CV.
