Career

I did B. Tech in Civil Engineering in 2012 and M. Tech in Earthquake Engineering from IIT Roorkee in 2015. Due to some personal problems, I qualified and joined Government Polytechnic college in Uttar Pradesh, which is considered equivalent to intermediate, as Lecturer. This work experience did not benefit me at all whenever I applied for any sort of job, be it in central government or any private sector. It has been 8 years since, I am trying to qualify other reputed Government Examinations but couldn't. I am married, age 33 and have a child. Could you kindly suggest now what should I do to change my career from this?

Ans: My suggestion is to be optimistic about future and keep looking for opportunities that will help you chart a new course in your career. Look for emerging areas where your knowledge gained in Masters of Earthquake Engineering can be used. Connect with large engineering and infrastructure companies and consulting firms and explore areas where you could add value.

Ans: Thank you for contacting me. It's good that you are seeking guidance on your career path after facing challenges with government exams and experiencing a gap in your career. When addressing the resume gap, focus on highlighting the skills, experiences, and accomplishments gained during your tenure as an assistant professor and your preparation for government exams. Emphasize any relevant projects, publications, or contributions that demonstrate your expertise and commitment to your field. You should also consider exploring alternative career paths beyond teaching and government exams now. Your background in design engineering and mechanical engineering opens up various opportunities in industries such as manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, consulting, research, and development.

Utilize jobsites, company websites, recruitment agencies, and professional networks to explore job opportunities that match your skills and interests. Trust in your abilities, stay resilient, and remain open to new opportunities as you continue to pursue your career goals in design engineering and mechanical engineering. Best of luck!

Ans: I fully empathize with your situation. Do focus on the positive of having completed BTech in Civil Engineering. Civil Engineering is the foundational engineering discipline and lends itself to use of new tools and technologies through use of of software to build structures using design elements that use newer materials to build infrastructure, homes, industrial townships that further sustainability. Use your current Tech Asstt job to learn about Oceanography as an added skills. Look at acquiring project management skills and explore opportunities with optimism and passion.
