Mehrauli, New DelhiA journey from june 2010 to April 2015
Hi I’m a 2009 passed out B.E graduate. After that I spent a hectic one year jobless preparing for GATE(I missed GATE by 1 marks). I applied for the Indian bank PO in May 2010, at that time I thought getting a job as PO would be a cake walk. Since I have managed to get a PG seat through TANCET exam, I didn’t write the PO exam.
When I was studying my PG, I used to go for invigilation for bank exams being conducted in our college venue, but by that time I never knew I would be sitting like this and appear for the competitive exams in the future.
PG completed, Got a job as lecturer (I wish even my enemy should not work as lecturer). I cannot survive in the field, what to do next – “GOVERNMENT JOB, that too in BANKING SECTOR, that too related to my profession” yes IT is “IT OFFICER SCALE-1”
Now target set….
I appeared for the “IT OFFICER SCALE-1” in March 2013.I prepared for two months and all my efforts went in vain, “missed by 6 marks (127/133)”.This failure brought down my confidence level.
I appeared for the “IBPS PO III” in October 2013.I just scored 5 marks in GK. “Missed the cut off by 4 marks (56/60)”.I felt ashamed of my General awareness I didn’t give up.
I appeared for the “IT OFFICER SCALE-1” in feb 2014. I prepared intensely for three months and I just cleared the written exam (106/106). But unfortunately, I was made to face a situation in APRIL 7….. Still I could remember the, message “You are not eligible for further process in selection”
I was in tears; I couldn’t just bear it... I lost all my hope… I was helpless. The only thing running in my mind was “I need a job”. I almost thought of appearing for all exams in 2014.
LIC Assistant – “failed”
SBI IT officer –“failed by 4 marks”
SBI PO – “missed by 1 mark”
“THIS is when BANKERS ADDA CAME TO MY RESCUE”
It just transformed my “General Knowledge”

With Bankers adda , getting government job has become a routine
