    Engineering Job or civil services preparation?

    I am currently pursuing BTech, 4th year, ECE branch, from Jaypee Institute, Noida. Our college is good enough for us to get a job in any of the good MNCs.But I want to prepare for civil services exams after my college along with learning a foreign language. I want to devote ample amount of time for it. I started preparing from my 1st year by reading newspapers and magazines. And for now I have searched few good institutes as well for joining(but not finalised them yet).
    I am confused whether I am taking the right decision by opting not for job. Its that I feel as per job is concerned, we can get it anytime after pursuing MBA. Its good to prepare for what I like rather than going with the normal course taken by many students.
    But then there still is a question of whether leaving job would be advisable? I feel since job is not going to help in any way for civil services, it would be useless. So I am not able to think of it as such. Please guide me further.

    hello friend,

    In the Engineering sector so many job posts in which you can apply based on their performance in written test and interview you can get the job posts..

    In the Technical job posts in the Government companies like:

    DRDO etc

    For the post entrance exam and interview conducted by the own companies..

    For the Civil service like:

    IES etc

    YOu can get these job posts through the Civil service entrance exam which has been conducted by the UPSC department .

    Eligibility for the Civil services :

    For the IAS, IPS : you have to passed the bachelor degree from any recognzied university

    For the IES : you should be passed the bachelor degree in engineering in four trade ECE/ EEE/ Mechanical/ Civil engineering from any recognized university

    age limit: age must be between the 21 to 30 years

    nationality: Indian citizen

    selection process:
    1. preliminary exam
    2.Main exam
    3.Final interview

    SO you can apply these posts but for these you have to do the more hard work these are the tough exam prepare by the UPSC departments..

    Best of luck !

    Hello dude!

    It is really confusing question between choosing a job or civils preparation.

    If your Financial status is not good then i say it is better if you go for Job.

    As there are lot of opportunities in both government and private sector,so you will get a job if you work harder.

    But if you choose Civils preparation then you must work really hard for 1 or 2 years and there is no gaurantee that you will get selected.

    If in case after two years you will not selected for civils then it will be difficult for you to get a job.

    But still if you are really interested in prearing for civils then work hard,put your maximum efforts and concentrate a lot and surely you will crack Civils.

    Your opportunities will also increase if you pass the examination.
