Secret behind SSC fame-

SSC or Staff Selection Commission is one of the most prestigious exams in the Country.

We all know that India has got the most number of young people throughout the world. Having such a large population means that Country needs a high number of jobs for these young people. Now India is a very populated and developing country. So jobs are not in much surplus as anticipated by youths. Another major problem is education and skills. Today’s youth lacks correct Skill required for the job. The combination of huge population and lack of Skills create an environment where people don’t get good private jobs. A private company wants profit due to its survival requirement and want skilled persons for the job. You can’t get hired in a private company if you can’t bring benefit to the company in monetary value.

Is SSC a good career option?

So today’s youth prefer government jobs as it pays very well compared to private employment during the initial years. The lowest employee in a government job gets much more than fresher of private job, most of the time.

Not only that, but government job promises something else also. The thing it guarantees is Job security which private job can’t. This job security combined with good initial salary creates an environment in a country where youths want to get a good government job as the government will pay you, no matter what. (Until and unless something very catastrophic happens.)

SSC or Staff Selection Commission offers you government posts which are very influential and powerful like Exercise and duty department and very famous Indian Income tax department. You can become an Income tax inspector and can earn money beyond your belief by doing corruption which is very sad and wrong. It’s also a criminal offence. But alas!

Some people even collect 100 crores throughout their lifetime, which is equal to $15 Million approx. This is a considerable amount compared to their salary.
