Shilp Garg asked the following question: 


I have done my graduation in b.tech in electronics and instrumentation engineering from UPTU affiliated college in 2014. Since 2014 I have been given GATE exam every year but the result seems not too good to get admission in any IITs or get a call from any PSUs. This year I have also given GATE exam and waiting for the result. in the mean time I have also applied for Bank exams but seems no result. now I got frustrated I have no idea what to do. Whether to go for M.tech or MBA or PSUs. As 3 years have been gone so none of private companies is interested in my profile. Please help me in my career guidance. I am really in need. I also want to go abroad for short term courses but the fees is too high and can’t afford.


Hi Shilpi,

First of all, CHILL.

Three Years gap is not a big deal. Moreover, you worked hard and tried your best. So, you shouldn’t have any regret of about three years gap. You gained an experience and knowledge that will help you forever. Do remember that this is a testing time that turn children into Adults. It will pass soon.

So you should be happy about the efforts you made and knowledge you have gained over the years.

What next?

I believe that a few years of gap on resume might have lowered your confidence level. Maybe if you will work for sometime, you will learn new things, meet new people, and may regain your confidence. Thus, you should look for a job.

Now, what kind of job and which company will give you job?

Many companies will give you job. You simply need to the following:

  1. Decide the field that you want to join
  2. Join a short term course, preferable online courses. For IT related sites, you can join sites like UdemyLyndaGogoTraining, etc.
  3.  Complete the course and do an internship. Don’t expect much compensation from the Internship.
  4. Look for a job while doing internship.
  5. Join Startups and SMEs

Smart Hack – Many small companies may give you training that includes experience certificates. You can try them as well.

What will happen to your dream like MBA, PSUs, etc.

You can prepare for them while working. You can join an online course and prepare for whichever competitive exam you wish while sitting at home. It saves a lot of time and money.
