GATE exam 2019 is coming up in February 2019 and since the registrations have closed, hope you have likely successfully registered for the exam.
PSU Jobs have always been in demand but are fast gaining popularity due to the initiatives of the government to revitalise the public sector.
The best thing about PSUs is that their recruitment is often based on merit of entrance exams. In recent years, most companies are accepting GATE as their shortlisting exam.
Key Points to Note:
– PSUs Jobs cut offs are announced by each company individually, there is no common cut off score.
– The cut off is usually applicable only for the current year, for example, only the marks of GATE exam 2019 will be eligible for PSU jobs announced in 2019. This is unlike M.Tech admissions where you can apply with marks of previous three years.
– GATE exam 2019 scores are not the only parameter, companies will also ask for your previous academic records, health records and even conduct a personal interview before offering you the job.
Here is a list of top jobs in PSU through GATE –
Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited is a popular choice for PSU jobs. They recruit JTO (Telecom) or Junior Telecom Officers through this scheme.
