    Re: Being an Electrical engineering student, what are the job opportunities available?

    Hello There

    This is Saurav signing in from Bhubaneswar.I am also a graduate in Electrical and Electronics Engg just like you.So it feels really nice to meet with someone from the same background. Well yes you can apply for many number of govt sector jobs after completion of your Engineering from E.E. stream.But the thing is that you have to make sure you are strong enough in your Engineering subjects.These kind of exams are not like a normal pool campus where you compete with only few hundred candidates.The competition is really stiff when it comes to govt jobs.But with few attempts and serious preparation for a couple of months do makes thing happen.In govt jobs the competition is high but those who have indepth knowledge in their subject sail through with a wonderful job.

    Since you are in Electronics ans Communication stream,the opportunities for govt sectors are really wide open.So be serious in your studies from now onwards to be able to crack these govt sector exams.Well now I am going to provide you a list of few most important govt sector exams you should look for.Here are the list:

    1>Govt Wings :- Some of the Major Government wings like Telecom sectors,Indian Railway,Indian Airlines,Indian Postal services,Indian revenue services,central excise office,Income tax dept etc also do require candidate from different core streams.You are also eligible for any of these jobs also.But remember that the jobs in these sectors are more managerial oriented rather than technical oriented.But you may expect some exciting technical jobs in Telecom sector and Indian Railway.

    2> PSUs : - Some major PSUs giants(BHEL, NTPC, ONGC, GAIL, SAIL, IOCL, CIL etc) of our country have a regular vacancies every year.Some of these PSUs conduct an exam and followed by an interview to hire good many number of candidates from Electrical,Mechanical,Electronics,Civil branches.You may start preparing for these exams by enrolling yourself in some coaching institute or self study techniques.The notifications of such exams can be available from "employment news" on a weekly basis or you may visit freshersworld website regularly.But remember you have to be really good enough in your studies to be able to crack those exams.These exams are never easy for an average student.But with proper coaching and regular practice of competitive question these exams are also crackable.

    3>I.T sector : Yes IT is a fast and growing sector.IT sector has become the backbone of our country's economy over the years.There are much opportunities for an ECE graduate in these sector.I think you should neglect this sector particularly if you are having a 60 to 65% career throughout academics.This sector covers most of the eminent IT giants like IBM,Infosys,Tech-Mahendra,HCL, CTS, Wipro,Mahendra-Satyam,Genpact etc.

    4> Power ,Gas,oil and coal sectors : - Some oil and gas refineries, power sectors and coal sectors also provides opportunities for desperate and outstanding candidates to work in their organization.Also most of these sectors are interested in those students possessing a very handsome GATE scorecard.So if you want to get absorbed in any of best public sector organizations then GATE exam is a must for you.Start preparing for the gate exam by enrolling yourself in some coaching institute.There are few well running institutes providing GATE coaching in India like MADE EASY, ACE Academy,Brilliant tutorials ,Gate - forum etc.

    5> Banking Sectors : - Yes this is very much true,even an Engineering graduate can also apply for clerical,PO/MT,AO,Technical officer types of posts in the banks.What you need here is just a degree certificate from a recognized institution or university with 55% marks which I am sure you have it.This sector is gaining a lot of momentum as far as modernization is concerned.Also the number of candidates to hired by the end of this year would likely cross 2 million.So there is a hell lot of opportunity in banking sector.

    6>I E S/I A S :- If you want a dream job,probably the best paid and prestigious job in our country then you should go for IES or IAS civil service exams.These are central govt exams conducted by UPSC under the guidance and supervision of Ministry of Human resource Development.You may also apply for the technical jobs conducted by staff selection commission or state public services commission to be able to join some respectable jobs in your own state.The jobs that you will be given after qualifying IES/IAS will comprise a mixture of both managerial decisions and technical supervision.The perks and emoluments after salary is really the best.So try to crack this exam.But remember the difficulty level and syllabus for both the above mentioned exams are appreciably high.

    7> DRDO,ISRO,Bramhos technology and SSC :- If you want a job which is challenging , prestigious and the same time related to patriotism then you have to try and qualify the exams conducted by these organization which are powered by Ministry of Defense.All you require is 60 % in B.tech/B.E to apply for these sector.But remember these exams are very tough and you may be appointed in research field or scientific assistant field.

    The list doesn't end here.There are many more such opportunities in govt sectors.I just can't name each and every single job.The above list covers almost all important jobs in govt sectors for an ECE graduate.Now you decide which way you will go.You have to start building a strong base for a bright future.
    You buy or borrow these competitive books and start your preparation:
    1. Electric Machinery by A. E. Fitzgerald, Jr., Charles Kingsley, Stephen D. Umans
    2. Elements of Electromagnetics by Matthew N. O. Sadiku
    3. Elements of Electromagnetics Solutions Manual by Matthew N. O. Sadiku
    4. Electrical Technology by B. Theraja

    9. Integrated Electronics Analog and Digital Circuits and Systems: Millman, Halkias
    10. Circuit Analysis: Theory and Practice by Robbins
    11. Elements of Electromagnetism: Sadiku

    I think the time is right for you now to make a statement.So prepare well and try to build a strong base for a healthy future.Hope my information helps you.Anyways best of luck for a bright future.

    Regards Saurav
