With the passage of time the stringency of qualifications for high paying government jobs has intensified. Gone are the days when a Secondary School Certificate sufficed to secure employment as clerks in any department of a government organization, be it, Human Resources, Material Management, Information Technology or the Finance Department. An engineer with an MBA degree would take precedence over an engineer with only an Engineering Degree.
The minimum qualification required for candidates to occupy key posts in any Government organization is graduation and post graduation, either as a Master of Business Administration or Engineering or Chartered Accountancy, Legal Qualifications, Information Technology, Indian Administrative Service, Indian Police Service or Indian Foreign Service. Candidates desirous of joining the army, navy or air force as key executives also need to hold post graduation degrees which augment their proficiency in their chosen vocation.
Innumerable internet portals also offer many opportunities to students to earn an income by doing part time net jobs and some students do prosper in these endeavors. The world of stocks and shares is also open to students who attend Morning College and then desire to be stockbrokers. Sykes & Ray Equities is one such company in Mumbai which employs such students even by paying their deposit and then recovering it in easy instalments from the successful transactions the student makes.
The endless opportunities to do a part time job in a dance academy, a martial arts centre or a gymnasium also attract students who are passionate about these activities.
The usual procedure for attempting to get high paying government jobs is to first appear for written examinations conducted by the Union Service Public Commission or the Staff Selection Commission or any appropriate authority conducting examinations for a government undertaking, followed by intense personal interviews. Many organizations like airlines, government shipping corporations, heavy and chemical industries and road and railway transport sectors insist on a mandatory medical examination too by their own medical faculty prior to appointment.
