    pls suggest me because I’m freshers and I’m still frustrated from these thing, how I can take decision about that and I’m pursuing and Its will complete june 2019

    • If you get selected as a Diploma Engineer, you will get the salary for Junior Engineer Scale, not for the engineering cadre.

  2. Sir I have completed 2 pu with 77% I want to do engineering which is best branch for me so that I m confused to do c.s are e&c

    • If you want to work in Government Organization, Mechanical Engg. & Electrical Engg are good choices. The CSE & ECE has very less number of jobs in the Government sector.
      If you have a plan to pursue the engineering from the top IITs or NITs, then you can go CSE or ECE as they have a decent percentage of placements for the Graduates.

  3. sir i recently completed my and now i am preparing for gate 2019 by my it easy to get good rank in gate and how should i prepare for to get good rank and for applying psu’s

    • Good to hear that you decided to start GATE 2019 preparation on time.
      If you prepare consistently, it’s not tough to crack the GATE exam.
      I have already shared an article to crack GATE exam on my website. You can follow the link for more info.

    • It depends on the vacancy in individual PSUs for CS students. So there are no fixed criteria for it. Try to get within 500 Rank as seats for CSE are less in PSUs.

  4. I have completed computer engg in 2017 also i got placed in MNC and now it has been a year m working in the company
    I want to go for gov job. Which exam should i prefer to give?

    • Currently, you can apply for AAI Junior Executive posts. And don’t forget to register yourself for the GATE 2019 exam. Most of the leading PSUs recruit engineering Graduates through GATE Scorecard. So start the GATE 2019 preparations too.

    Thanks in Advance.

    • The GATE is the best choice but tough to crack or getting a seat in leading PSU.
      So, to get a reputed job in minimum time, you should prepare for BANK PO, Specialist Officer, Bank Clerk, SSC CGL, other state-level (your own state) jobs. Once you get a job in any of the above, you can continue the study for the dream company/organization.

  8. hi sir,
    I finished my ug in to i get the individual notifications for psu and isro ,drdo exams without gate scored..please reply me sir..

    • It is really difficult to get a job in these Government departments without GATE. So it would be better to go for GATE to get the job in these departments.

  9. i have complated B.A(Economice) in 2018 and studying in the Diploma (Computer science Engneering)”.complate in the 2020.

  10. Hi,
    I have completed BSC Computer Science in 2011. Having 6 years of experience in IT Industry as Oracle Developer. Is there any chance to get into government jobs? For which exams I can apply?

  11. Hi,
    I have completed MCA and have 5+years of experience in Software Industry (Web Application Development). Is there any chance to get into govt. Jobs that suits for my skill sets?

  12. Sir i had completed MCA. ,M.phil and presently doing B.Ed in computer science. to get a job in railways school as a CS teacher

  17. I am Still in my undergraduation. I am student of CSE stream.. Its my goal to crack GATE.. but i have heard That GATE for the students in CSE is not prioriable.. No job scope in Govt. sector.. is that true? Can i hesitate Going with GATE examination? also if i have The a good GATE score later on, will the Companies listed above prioritize the fresher with GATE Score under CSE category much like other streams.. What i mean is, will he be least prioritised?

    • Although the number of vacancies for the CSE students is less but the job profile isn’t bad. In fact, engineering stream doesn’t matter in these jobs. Just do preparation and don’t believe in rumors.

    • Yes, there are very few companies like Coal India Ltd and other central government jobs where you have to appear for a seperate test conducted by the recruiter.

  18. Any PSU job which having less than 60% criteria in graduation ?
