PSU recruitment on the basis of GATE scores has been soaring in popularity among eligible candidates due to a variety of factors:
Being a computer based test, GATE scores are often seen as unbiased in nature. Since it is seen as a reliable exam, the scores are used for recruitment process so that no one feels unfair.
PSUs offer stable jobs with good pay. The secure job can be for a lifetime for the candidates. However at PSUs, more than ability, seniority is awarded.
There are a lot of perks involved with PSU recruitment. The selected candidates are given health care facilities, house allowances and more. Additional perks (foreign trips, extended leaves and more) may depend on the supervisor so the candidates are advised to keep a positive equation with him/her.
If the candidates enjoy a dynamic environment then PSUs might seem like not a really good idea since it is very slow in implementing new policies and innovative changes. However, this can also lead to the candidates starting off and persuading the companies for a change.
Candidates can check the previous years cutoff to know what are the GATE cutoff scores for PSUs to be secured for recruitment. Using the previous years cutoff, the candidates can set a target and accordingly prepare for the examination.
