Career - That takes Care

Engineering Service Exam ( UPSC ) – Career Option for Engineers in Govt.

A Career in Government

Today a career in Government is a very lucrative option that too when it is in the “Core Area” for the Engineers. After the last pay commission the Pay & Perks have also become comparable with private sector with good work-personal life balance.

Current Scenario – Bleak for Engineers                   

The job market today is in very precarious situation particularly for engineers. A large number of them normally aspire to be in IT with in India or abroad. But recent developments show that there is a serious crisis in IT recruitment and further a large number of them are losing their existing jobs as reported in various media. Since Trump Administration in US the employment opportunities in US are also seriously hampered, with issuance of H1B Visas serious curtailed.

Another fact which points out serious issue for engineers in particular is that, a large number of engineering colleges which had mushroomed earlier are getting shut. This clearly confirms that the lack of opportunities for the engineers is making less and less students opt for engineering as a career and therefore closure of colleges.

Way Out
