Staff Selection Commission (SSC) conducts recruitment for various government ministries and departments in different posts across the country. SSC conducts examination for combined higher secondary level, matriculation level, graduation level and other specialist examinations periodically over the year. These examinations require related qualifications from the aspiring candidates and they should be eligible to apply for the posts. The candidates should be aged between 21 to 30 years in order to be able to apply for the various posts. The only educational qualification that is common for any post under SSC is Graduation Degree. Those posts that require candidates to possess higher secondary degree are also conducted by the recruitment body. Thus candidates having B.tech Degree in any of the stream of engineering, which is a four year Bachelor Degree, are eligible to apply for SSC Combine Graduate Level posts or lower posts. The candidates with any qualification higher than the desired would also need to sit for the examination and there is no scope of exemption from the written test and interview rounds for candidates having degrees in different streams other than B.A/B.Sc /B.Com Graduation Degrees.
Career development for engineering graduates: Though possessing an Engineering Degree, that too with Computer Science can help the candidates immensely in their work field. They can also rise up higher in the ranks with the help of their technical and mechanical knowledge in computers. It can also demarcate them amidst the candidates that have opted for the various posts under SSC. Although there wouldn’t be any special benefit given to the candidates having engineering or management degrees, still they could have a better chance in cracking the personal interview round with making the recruitment authority understand their worth in future requirements of the particular department they would work for. Working in cyber cell as cyber-crime inspectors or working as sub inspector in CBI or excise inspector posts you might find your learned computer and technology skills helpful.
Towards an ideal e- Governance scenario in India: Due to the advancement in the digital arena of the country most of the government offices and ministries have turned their administrative work environment digital. Most of the work is carried out through computers installed in various offices and the connectivity is received through the internet facility in these offices. Having personnel with knowledge of networking, computer hardware, software, applications and other computer related analogies to these offices thus help enormously. Though there are specialised people devoted to attend to such issues occurring in the government offices, it is always good to have a troubleshooting officer present who have considerable amount of knowledge of the subject along with what they have appointed for. Thus engineering graduates can enhance their technical skills too through these jobs.
