This is Atul. I would like to share my success story with you all. I come from a middle class family from Patna. Being an Administrative Officer in a Government Insurance company was never my dream. I just made it as my aim as a part of my endeavour to get selected in any public sector company. To be a part of this system, however I indirect it could be.
My struggle began after I finished my Engineering. Finishing engineering with waitlisted status on my placement as an MNC, I had no option but to sit at home and look for other options when I came to know about various public sector job opportunities. I sat for IBPS PO and IBPS SO and failed in both of them last year. The reason was obvious – I had no desperation yet.
Came 2014 when I sat with a fresh mind leaving all my sadness, aspirations behind. I never became a successful computer engineer as my friends. Sometimes, I used to see their status, their pics and I grew up an inferiority complex that they were earning and living their lives and I was at my home preparing for exams. I had to avoid everyone in my colony; avoid all phone calls of my relatives and even deactivate facebook. But i always struck back positively. I joined a local coaching institute and studied hard to get selected.
I have already shared my strategy of clearing my exams this year in one of my previous posts.
Private Banks Axis, ICICI and ING Vysya PO – Selected but not joined.
IBPS RRB PO and Clerk – Cleared, but was always missing the call by few marks.
IBPS PO – Cleared with Score – 91
IBPS CLERK – Cleared with Score – 153
IBPS SO – Cleared
UIIC AO – Cleared and Selected
New India Assistants – Cleared
My failures in 2013 and 2014 were IBPS PO, IBPS SO, Insurance AO 2013, SBI PO, RBI Grade B Officer.
One thing people, Those successful results would never have come if i had not tasted failures. They bring you down. But you have to fight it back to be what you have always wanted to be.
