Staff Selection Commission (SSC) is a Government of India organization involved in recruiting staff at multiple levels in various ministries and Central Government departments, including their subordinate offices. Every year, the commission conducts a graduate-level exam, commonly known as SSC CGL. This exam is one of the most coveted and sought after exams in the country.
Central government jobs are secure and recession-proof. The Indian government is seen as a stable employer, unlike many private sector establishments, where hire and firework culture is there. Job prospects in the public sector are relatively unaffected by the demand and supply forces prevailing in the job market.
A person employed in Central Government enjoys a dignified standing in society. A lot of candidates attempt SSC CGL as they are not just after a well paying job but after the social esteem associated with the post. For many candidates taking SSC CGL is the first step towards their dream of becoming a gazetted officer someday
