As an aspiring engineer pursuing my undergraduate studies, I would be lying if I said I was never allured by the benefits offered by a “Sarkaari Naukri” over a regular MNC job. The basic stereotype image we all have of a government employee, is that of a person having a stress free, 9-5 job whilst enjoying all the perks being offered. But is it really true? Not many of us actually think about the cut-throat competitive screening process and entrance exams that one has to undergo before attaining that position.
For any competitive exam, it usually takes about 6 dedicated months of your best efforts to crack it. I can assure you; this isn’t the case with the UPSC or SSC entrance exams. I’ve known of people who prepared for their ‘Civils’ for over a year and a half and still haven’t managed to crack it in their first attempt. I’ve also known of people who managed to crack it in their first attempt, with just a year’s preparation. The key is consistency. Make sure that you put in small amounts of consistent effort rather than cramming it all in a week’s time and feeling stressed in the following weeks. Things may seem a little drab after a while and at such times a study group always helps. Be it preparing for your groups or mains, a study group often helps you expand your horizons and makes the entire process a little bit more engaging. During this long term preparation, you are bound to have occasional spells of despair and despondency. Ensure that your reason for this career choice is right. Superficial reasons such as the power, the status or even the perks offered might not give you the boost you’d be looking for at that time. But, if your heart truly is passionate about the cause you are working for, the cause to build a better economy, a better country, or even a simple cause such as to offer hope to the society and bring about a change can help, and you are bound to make it through.
Most people often consider government posts as administrative ones. This isn’t true. You can be a photographer for the Photo Division of India, or a travel writer for the Indian Embassy, a scientist for ISRO or even a secret agent for RAW. The government of India provides a wide range of opportunities in numerous fields. Some are well known and the others not so much. However, this doesn’t make one lesser than the other.
Every year we have more than three lakh aspirants registering for the ‘Civil exams’. Out of these aspirants, a few lakhs build up the courage to appear for the exams and just a couple of hundreds cross the bridge to glorious heights. Yet, this does not dissuade the passionate aspirants to try & re-try for government jobs in chennai. That is the spirit of this game of competitive exams. It has an alluring effect which keeps the passionate clinging onto it. Let the passion reign high to help you reach GREAT heights & sure enough the Civils are yours to crack.
Sarkari Naukri or government jobs in chennai are aspiring like all the places in India, So for all of you preparing for your civils or any kind of competitive exams, you CAN be a part of the few hundreds who get a chance to make our country a better place. After all, “The best way to predict the future, is to create it”, and that can start from YOU!
