Hello Friends I am Insomniac, Here I am for sharing my story of getting selected as Clerk in Syndicate Bank with great pleasure and happiness. I thank everyone who supported me when I was in a state of Despair, Disappointment and Degradation. I thank everyone who showed faith and trust on me. I thank to the Almighty, My Parents, Friends, the Faculties of Career Power, Bankers Adda and everyone else who helped me to get up of all that mess and always motivated me to get whatever I wish.
I am a Middle class boy from a small town in Uttar Pradesh. I completed my graduation in Mechanical Engineering in 2014 from a ‘Third class’ U.P.T. U. College. I even got a placement but the job was not from my core field so I didn’t accept that. I was qualified in GATE 2014 but that was of no use as I was not interested in pursuing M.Tech. I was so disappointed. As I wanted to study further for my post graduation in Management so I started preparing for that and after appearing in entrance exams I started getting calls from colleges for admission but there came the most important turn in my life. I dropped the idea of further studies and I started looking for job. As I thought it was not a good idea to spend money and another 2 years of my life in studies. And I have seen many of my friends working for private companies and how they were struggling and how they were harassed and treated badly. And the salary that they were given made me lose my interest in Private jobs. And in this difficult phase of my life I filled I.B.P.S. CWE IV Clerk form as it was the very first job opening I have seen at that time.
20 November 2014 - I received my call letter for Online Exam, I started preparing for exam. I had no idea of how to prepare and what to do and what not to do but any how I kept doing that. Being from a technical background Quantitative Aptitude, Reasoning, Computer and English was not a problem for me but General Awareness was creating troubles for me and for that I started following ‘Bankers Adda’ which really helped me a lot. The capsules from Bankers Adda became my favorite PDF’s. They were with me 24*7.
21 December 2014 – The day when I appeared in my ‘Life changing Exam’. Yet I was not so sure about qualifying this exam but still I was happy and satisfied as it was my first chance only and it made me confident enough that I can make it possible.
January 2015 – The year came with a new ray of hope. The result was out and when I saw it I had tears rolling down my cheeks, at that moment I wanted to cry, scream and shout but I saved my energy till final selection and with all my energy I started preparing for interview.
Meanwhile I appeared for S.B.I. Associate Clerk As Well.
February 2015 - On 8th February I was in front of the interview panel. The interview was good and I was satisfied and confident enough to make it through.
March 2015 – I usually hate waiting for anything but this wait was harder than anything else and every moment I took a breath I kept praying to the almighty. There were several positive as well as negative thoughts in my mind but I never let negativity overcome my confidence and positivity.
1 April 2015 – This day came with a storm of success in my life that completely changed everything in my life and this was the moment I was waiting for. The result was out on a day when everyone else was trying to make others fool but I was there with a certificate that I am not a fool. Yes, the result was out and I was in, I was allotted ‘Syndicate Bank’. I was very happy and I thanked almighty for his kindness. My mother hugged and kissed me with joy, the best moment which I remember ever spent with her. She informed everyone about my result with joy and happiness. My Parents, Brothers, Sister, Friends and relatives everyone was happy for me.
The feeling is just wonderful when you achieve something that too after such a long waiting period and especially when you see the smiling faces of your parentsand everyone all around you.
This is not where I wanted to be or this is not for what I had always wished but this is what I desperately needed at this part of my life and this is just a beginning.
I am not here to boast of my hard work and achievement. I just want all of you to set small targets and achieve them one by one and never let the negativity overcome your thoughts. Be brave enough to take decisions. Never regret for what you have done. Learn from your past mistakes.
Luck favors you when you work hard and never get afraid of failure. Have faith in yourself and get above all…!!!
Thanks everyone once again for your blessings and wishes…!!!
