Yash Question by Yash on Mar 28, 2024Hindi

Hello sir, I had done my graduation in Mechanical Engineering in 2017; after that, I started preparation for the government exam, due to which I didn't take up a job or higher studies until now... and because of that gap, I am unable to get any job in private organizations as well. What can I do now? Can you please suggest me? Wherever I talk for a job, either they say you have a huge gap or you have less skill. If you have some more skills, then we can think about it, and for getting skills, coaching is demanding huge amounts. What should I do now?

Ans: Well better late than never.. Understand that you wanted to find a govt job hasn't happened, what next.. Go to the websites of leading engineering companies, mechanical, automobile, aviation, shipping... Apply directly.. to the careers link in their website.. Soon you will be successful!

I have completed my B.E in Mechanical in 2021. But jobless till now due to many factors such as following: 1)Due to family issues 2)Low Salary packages inspite of longer distance travelling to office 3) Slow growth in the establishment 4) preparing for govt jobs No I am fed up with all above things... What to do ?
Ans: Hi!!
Syed, you are asking me what to do, here are my suggestions-
1. have clear goals with respect to your job
2. you have listed so may reasons for not taking up a job, now find a few reasons to take a job - your self respect, your own money to spend are some I can think of
3. it's very easy to quit a job, find reasons to stay
4. invest in your physical and mental well being, a clam and collected mind will take better decisions
5. I really won't say slow growth in an organisation, if I had finished engineering in 2021 and it is middle of 2024 now
6. preparing for Govt Jobs is a good idea, look into doing this thing well if you are really serious about it
7. give your 100% in everything you do Syed!! Let there be energy, enthusiasm and excitement in your search for a job, it's your life, take charge of it and see how you want it to unfold. Do all that which is in your control
8.you get fed up when you don't see progress and not celebrate your wins however small they may be! Every step you take towards your goal, pat yourself on the back, be your greatest cheer leader
9.do not compare yourself with others, compare only if you feel inspired
10. focus on your well being and happiness
11. take up a job and do well there, it is better to do a job than to sit idle or
12. look to upskill in an area you want to work, look for job oriented courses
13. seek help if need be

All the very best!!
