Hey everyone, I need bit of advise from veterans and experienced people here.
I have been selected in one Bank as a bank probabtionary officer through ibps. Previously I was engaged in manufacturing industry working like a donkey for 14-15 hours in average. I know banks are time demanding stressful job but I have mentally prepared myself to work for long hours and in extreme rural areas. Previous job has also made me to work hard. Also, I come from rural area so living there isn’t an issue. So I am ready to take on India’s most hated job in aspirants circles face on, it is anyday better than being unemployed and continuing in that private.
Here I have opened this thread to need advise wrt civil services attempt as I have no one to guide me through this. I have only 2 attempts left as a general category. I have given mains two times and failed pre two times. My prep is okay wrt static subjects and I need to work on current affairs mostly. But prelims failure and job has kept me away from studies. My question is:
1) Should I give this attempt? I have lost confidence in me due to failures and I am confused. I know it will demand extra efforts. What bothers me is -that training part and probabtion going to effect preparation significantly? Will it be waste of precious attempt only? Or is it possible to prepare while being in probationary job?
2) Suppose I park this attempt until I settle down in job, how much impact does late entry at age 27-28 is there on progression? I always think of reaching till secretary level or top positions and so fear from late entry. Presently i am 26 and will turn 27 soon.
These two things have made me terribly confused. Please guide me.
