PSU Recruitment Through GATE Score, Favourite Career Option for GATE Aspirants

PSU Recruitment is one of the dreams of Engineering Graduates. PSU Recruitment through GATE Score was started by some PSU in 2012 and after that many PSUs announced GATE score to be mandatory for recruitment of graduate engineers at entry level.

With the start of PSU recruitment through GATE, a new set of options and opportunities have opened up for GATE aspirants. Prior to 2012, GATE primarily was for admission to the postgraduate degree in engineering i.e M.Tech, MS since then it has now opened up other multiple options in which recruitment for PSU becomes one of the favourite choices of GATE aspirants. In present, there are more than 3000 jobs available through GATE exam for engineering graduates.
