RESPECTED SIR I want to know

RESPECTED SIR

I want to know regarding the Postings & Transfers in case of Engineering Services.

Suppose a person gets a particular zone of his choice in his initial posting, can he stay in that zone in the normal course of his person i.e. he gets regular promotions also but stays in that particular zone. 

& suppose, in case a person doesn't get his choice posting in the starting, so does he has to wait for the promotion to move to his choice place or can it be done without that. 

& how easy or difficult it is to change the zone...(my prefered zone in Delhi).

 

THANKS IN ADVANCE.

Hi there,. 

I am Aaron Michael an engineering graduate in Electronics and instrumentation engineering (2012) passed out. I was working as a Tech Support engineer in ITES and resigned a couple of weeks back. My father being in the railways had always inspired me to join railways, he is a technician in diesel loco shed and I am planning of getting into the railways right now my plan is to write IES and get in as a Group A officer, I do understand that its not an easy task so if you could help me out with a few questions that I have,

 

How long does one need to prepare for this exam? I have intermediate or lets say average in studies guy

Is it best to write only this exam or go ahead and give a try with all the railway exams that come up?

IES is a tough exam. How long

IES is a tough exam. How long you need to get through dependant on your ability and hard work. 1-3 years normally people prepare.  

Why did you resigned before getting another job??

I would have resigned either

I would have resigned either ways and plus I dont get much time to prepare if I am working so I thought I could dedicate more time to prepare. I am 23 years now and I guess I have ample time?

Engineering candidate can

Engineering candidate can either join through Engineering Service Exam conducted by UPSC or as SSE by RRB.

If you are fortunate to come through the first, which is a tough competition you join directly as Assistant Engineer in Group A services and go up the ladder at a fast pace. If you join as SSE by RRB you join as a Group C employee as Senior Section Engineer. Chances of promotion for SSE are limited compared to UPSc candidates.
