WHY I CHOSE CIVIL SERVICES AS A CAREER? – SUMIT KUMAR (AIR 53)

I have been thinking for a long time, going through previous years’ toppers’ blogs, whether I should do the same or not. I have been sharing strategies of Mains and Personality Test through toppers’ talk sessions on various platforms and posting them on my Facebook profile for everyone to see.

How to prepare along with a job: Tips for working professionals by Sumit Kumar Rai( AIR 54)

1. First of all, you need to have a mindset about your current job. It should be treated as a temporary phenomenon in your life. Assume that it is just a job, it is not something where you want to spend your entire life. Your passion and that burning desire for civil services should be your guiding criteria at your work place. So, treat your job as it is: It is secondary to your preparation. By this I don’t mean that you become too negligent at work. That should not be the case and an aspiring civil servant should never do that.

Even if you get a bad one, it is not the end of your life. A little sacrifice is needed for a noble cause. Keep on reading!
