    Re: What are the Government jobs for freshers?

    You have a very decent number of government job opportunities. As EEE graduate, you will be having job opportunities in your discipline i.e computers and the salary also will be good. The government companies that are currently offering careers in EEE are:

    NTPC
    GAIL
    APTRANSCO
    GENCO
    IOCL
    EIL
    ECIL
    BSNL
    SAIL
    GAIL etc.

    You can also write any of these, but any graduate is eligible for these irrespective of their discipline in graduation:

    UPSC
    APPSC
    CIVILS
    BANK POs etc.

    One of the good ways to keep track of the notifications regarding the government jobs is to keep checking the following sites regularly:

    http://employmentnews.gov.in/
    http://www.govtjobs.co.in/

    eligibility:

    The basic eligibility is to complete graduation from a recognised college/university wth a minimum of 60%, but most technical jobs demand a 65%.
    Some companies like IOCL are not conducing any written tests, but instead considering GATE score. So, it's compulsory to not only write GATE, but to get a good score.

    All the Best..!!

    Regards!
