After completing engineering, almost every candidate is looking for a job. Some want private jobs whereas some want to do government jobs. There are very few options for engineers to do a government job in their field. Therefore, today, the number of engineer candidates in UPSC preparation is higher than the candidates of other streams. The majority of job options for engineers are in the private sector.
To give government job opportunities, SSC (Staff Selection Commission) introduced the SSC JE exam for engineering candidates. It offers the most popular government jobs to engineers. After qualifying for this exam, you can become a government junior engineer. There are almost 15 types of jobs in 7 different departments including Central Water Commission, Military Engineer Services, etc.
In the SSC JE exam, candidates have to qualify for two papers. The first paper is a computer-based online test of 200 marks with a duration of two hours and the second paper is an offline descriptive test for 300 marks with a duration of two hours.
The first paper is divided into three parts of which you have to attempt each part. These parts are-
- General Intelligence (50 Marks)
- General Awareness (50 Marks)
- Electrical or Civil & Structural or MechanicalGeneral Engineering (100 Marks)
The second paper is also divided into three parts out of which you have to attempt only one. These parts are-
- Civil & Structural Engineering (300 Marks)
- Electrical Engineering (300 Marks)
- Mechanical Engineering (300 Marks)
