    What will be the effect of two years gap after B.Tech degree, in PSU and GATE interviews?

    I m tired of waiting for getting joining date from a reputed IT company and have almost wasted a year after B.Tech (2011 pass out).
    I now want to invest 1 more year for PSU/IES preparation, without doing job anywhere. But I fear about the consequences of 2 year gap that I may have to face next year in interviews of GATE/PSUs.
    Plz guide me by telling effect of 2 year gap after B.Tech on PSU interviews and on GATE interviews.
    Need to tell you that currently I have 0 level prep. for GATE/PSU.

    no need to bother about 2 year gap after completion of your b.tech for gate exam and for PUBLIC SECTOR JOBS also

    actually , if oyu are trying for an i.t. job having 2 years wasted , then it is a problem for you
    but , in case of GATE EXAM and for GOVERNMENT JOBS , there is no problem for you even if you have wasted 2 years in job searchning in i.t. sector

    but for most of the jobs in goverment sector which are based on b.tech qualification , the maximum age limit is 30 years fr general category canddiates .
    for obc category candidates 33 years is the maximum age limit
    for sc or st category canddiates the maximum age limit is 35 years

    so, you should be aware of this age criteria.

    so, you can write ,

    ~~ GATE EXAM
    ~~ OTHER GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENT EXAMS LIKE ,

    ~~ police department
    ~~ banking sector
    ~~ rrb exam
    ~~ ias exam
    ~~ ips exam , etc..


    all the best

    the first thing i wanted to say after 3 year prep of civil services you dont have to look back. you have many option like pcs, ssc, banking ,rrb and also IAS.
    Now if you are turning back just because of pressure of family and money then you dont have to do so, here is alternative to money and knowledge
    Start teaching student in your own coaching, believe me when you'll start by one many other student will come. and by giving 5 hrs to 5 days you can earn upto
    8k to 10k. and it will never stuck between your further prep. to civil services.

    in civil services time is a factor should be seen as Patient and Persistently.ok.

    But even though you don't agree then only one best way to you for Software Job is First Decide any field like JAVA,ASP.NET,ORACLE,C++ any
    Then find any company to hiring for freshers, no matter the company is small or medium or large just go for it and take at least 1-2 year experience and also
    for first three years dont work for money but for knowledge, this is how you can go again and again.ok.

    and one thing more Never join a company which say to you to get trained and placed by us ALso Never join a company which takes a Bond and says in advance to
    give the money of Bond NEVER. because i am sure it is fake.

    THE NEXT THING IS THAT FOR ANYTHING ELSE YOU CAN SEND ME MAIL OK:deependratri@gmail.com

    THE LAST THING I WANT TO SUGGEST THAT:

    If A Challenge is difficult ,the opportunity is good.
    If a challenge is like impossible, the opportunity is best.
    by Winning the difficult challenge some people will know you, you will be big.
    but by making impossible to possible you will be respected and remeberd always and you will be Huge.

    Re: What will be the effect of two years gap after B.Tech degree, in PSU and GATE interviews?

    Dear Friend;
    I think there will be no effect of two year gap after B.Tech in PSU/GATE exams.

    Because both of these exams can be attempted multiple times.There are huge candidate who sit for GATE/PSU exams two-three or more times.

    So don't be tensed for this two year Gap problem.

    In both case the interviewer checks that are you eligible for these job/course or, not... based on your educational qualification,Knowledge but you should be within the maximum age limit.

    So don't worry.Its not a problem of having two years of Gap after B.Tech for the good engineers.

    Re: What will be the effect of two years gap after B.Tech degree, in PSU and GATE interviews?

    Hello my dear friend ,

    generally private sector companies allows a gap of not more than two years when they come to hire candidates.
    But this gap is the gap in your academic period and not after completion of B.TECH degree.


    Now you have't got a job even after 2 years then it would surely be difficult for you to get a job in any of the following good MNC:
    • INFOSYS
    • HCL
    • IBM
    • WIPRO
    • COGNIZANT

    Now if you want to get a job that too a descent one then i will advise you to strengthen your resume by adding following to it as you don't have any work
    experience to supplement it:

    • Do additional courses.
    • Do internship or any other kind of technical training.
    • Do good projects.
    • Do foreign language courses.

    If you can add these things in your resume then i dont think you will have any problems with the companies as you can then say that during those two years you
    were doing following courses and training.


    Talking about government jobs you won't face any kind of problem as in government jobs only they look for the minimum qualifications according to the exam
    and if you fulfil it then afterwards every body is treated as same.

    There will be always a dilemma that if we missed 2 years than there will be no jobs for us in private sector.

    You should prepare a answer for this , so that the interviewer question this than you confidently answer to this question.

    There is nothing like impossible to got a job.
    As you told that you are doing some industrial automation courses, than you have surely an edge over other fresher.

    you can get the chance to work in the software company only thing is that you have to give some good reasons why you haven't done the job during this period.

    some of the reason that you can give that are as follows:

    show that you were doing some software courses during this period.
    show that you were preparing for the further studies, for that you had given some CET,CAT,MAT,GATE,GMAT test,etc

    There will be no problems in govt jobs for a mere 2 year gap.In fact the age limit is kept that way that there is no such problems.This year gap and all this blasphemy occurs in mostly IT companies and also in Electronics companies.You need not bother about the gap as if you get selected for interview,you will find plenty of candidates with higher gap than yours.So do not bother about year gap.But go for the preparation of highest level so that you do not lose any more years.Prepare for the best and take coaching if necessary.Take this as investment and not wastage.All the best

    one year gap is common in thesse tymes but a gap of two year can be bit risky for your future carreer if you have a weak basic knowledge ..many companies regret the cv and resumes of students if they have even more than one year ..!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A gap of two year is bit risky and a candidate should be strongly strong in its basic knowledge if it has to be covered up in front of comapnies and other multi national companies
