    • You can prepare for the GATE exam for the best & reputed job. If GATE seems tough for you, I would request to go through the guide to get a government job at an early age.
      Just find out the list of similar type job examination and prepare only for them.
      Like SSC is not bad for engineers, you can prepare SSC, Bank PO, Bank Clerk and similar type of competitive exam in your own state.
      This will certainly help you to get a job in govt sector.
