  • Need suggestion to try government job

    Planning to search for a government job? Searching for detailed information about how to prepare for exams and the age limit? On this Ask Expert page check out the advice for all your queries.

    Few of my well wishers have told me to try for government job, but I don't have any idea on that. I need a clear idea for the same. I did BCA (2011 passed out) and I have 8 years of experience in IT industry (age 28+). I heard there are few groups like group 1,2 etc. I need to know what category I can go to, how to prepare for exams and age limit.

  • The State government jobs are classified as Group 1, Group 2, Group 3 and Group 4 jobs. The State public service commission will be giving online advertisements and paper advertisements. You can see them in Newspapers or on their website. Group 4 is the clerical cadre. Group3 is the officer's cadre, Group 2 Assistant Manager's level and Group 1 is the manager's care. People take group I like a state Administrative service examination.
    All these posts will have a written test and then interview. The syllabus of the examination and other details can be obtained from their website. There are many institutions offering coaching for this examination. You can join and get coaching. Competition is very high and very difficult to get selected. However, nothing is impossible and all depends on your hard work and commitment.
    You can also try in banks which are government jobs only. You can do BEd and try for government teacher post. You can apply for SSC examination of the central government and also UPC post.
    Keep watching the advertisements in various leading newspapers and go on applying them. Continue to work hard and focus on the written test. Then you may get a government job. My sincere suggestion to you is that simultaneously, fry for a private job and join in that job and continue your government job search.

  • You have asked such a question which can't be answered at one go. However, I am trying to give basic information. In India, Government jobs are offered by the Central Govt. State Governments and municipality/panchayat. This is because our country follows three-tier governance. In addition, there are Central PSUs and State PSUs.

    Maximum number of Government jobs are provided by Central Government. Indian Railway (Railway Recruitment Boards) and Staff Selection Commission every year fill up thousands of vacancies in different categories. In Central Government, there are three types of posts, Group-A, Group-B and Group-C. All Central Government Group-A posts are filled by UPSC.

    If you have any specific query about any particular Government job or any particular Government recruiting agency, you may ask further questions.

  • There are many jobs in Govt sector which one can try and different sectors have different age criterion. For teaching jobs the upper age limit is 35 years. So, you have some margin there and you can try to complete B.Ed. and ten apply for teaching job. You do not have time to complete MCA and then do NET and apply for lecturer post in universities as by that time your age will be well above the stipulated limit of 28 years.

    Another option for you is in banking sector where you can apply for combined banking exam through IBPS entrance test where the age limit is 28 years for the clerks and 30 years for PO. In IBPS you can get success if you prepare for it as per its exam pattern. It has two parts one is preliminary and other is mains. There will be questions related to aptitude, computer awareness, reasoning, English, Mathematical aptitude etc. So you can take advantage of your experience also there. There will be rush for this exam but with hard work and focussed approach, you can get through it. Please note that in IBPS exam there is a category as specialist officers where IT is also a stream. I think you can try for that.

    Indian Railway is also an option as the age limit is 30 years there and you can apply for the suitable post as per your interest and liking. Indian Postal Services is also a lucrative area but do not know whether your age qualifies for that or not as the age limit there is 27 years. Civil Services is another area where one can apply unto an age of 30 years. For police services the age limit is even more pegged at 35 years.

    So depending on your interest, liking and present age, you can take a conscious decision to try to shift to Govt job by appearing in the relevant competitive exam.

    Knowledge is power.

  • There are a lot f jobs in the government - sectors but to qualify the same, you need a thorough planning and be fully familiar with the trend of setting such questions. This is in reference to Probationary officers examination being conducted for the Public - sector Banks, though the pattern of Private - Banks such as Axis, Yes - Bank, ICICI are similar in nature. You must have sound knowledge of different tools of Matyematics such as Percentage, Profit and Loss, Equations to find the unknown quantities and so on, Data - representation, Reasoning, Important rules of grammar and usage etc. Though the questions are not difficult in nature but to arrive at the correct answer within a limited time - frame should be the main focus of the aspirants. You can develop all the essential skills by the joining a reputed institute offering coaching in the similar line.
    Think of acquiring B.Ed so as to make entry in the teaching - line and with your honest preparation you may be successful in getting a job of teacher in a school of a state - government.
    The other line could be to persue a MCA degree through IGNOU and show your grand performance in the final examination. Wth an average scoring of 55 percent in your MCA, you will be eligible for NET test conducted by CBSE. In case, you qualify for the NET test, you would get a chance of Lecturership in a constituent college. Later, you can take up a Ph.D degree for the faster growth in your career.
    You may think of appearing IAS but for that you should be determined in your approach. Join a reputed coaching institute offering the best guidance to the aspirants to clear the test.
    A lesser tough competitive examination would be to qualify the civil services of the state - governments and in that way, you can crack the test of BDO.
