SSC CGL 2017 Post Preferences for Women

Choosing the right post preferences is one nerve-wracking procedure. Some candidates even complain that it is harder than the exam itself. Well, that was a joke, but yeah, choice is a tricky customer. It brings in doubt where none existed.

Aspirants often feel clueless as to which posts to apply for while registering for SSC CGL. This year, SSC has made the task a teeny bit easier by categorizing all the posts based on grade pay. But, needless to say, there still is a sufficient amount of confusion.

The choice of post preferences needs to be made after considering a handful of parameters:-

  1. Grade pay/Salary – Because you know, money matters!
  2. Nature of work – Well, there are indoor masters, and there are outdoor warriors. Choose your job depending on who you are.
  3. Posting Location – Some wish to explore new worlds, while some prefer staying close to home. The choice is yours to make.
  4. Growth/Promotion

Men usually make their choice based on grade pay and growth, while women make their choice predominantly based on Nature of work and Posting location. We cannot generalize though, because there are free birds in both gender classes.

Now, based on our understanding of all the posts and knowledge (albeit limited) of women psychology, we have made a list of top 5 posts for women. Here you go:-

#1 Assistant Audit Officer in Indian Audit & Accounts Department under CAG

This Group B Post offers the highest grade pay of 4800, which amounts to around 60k in-hand salary. This is basically an officer job and is considered the most preferred job post for females. Apart from Job security and regular promotions, this also happens to be one of the gazetted posts.

#2 Assistant Accounts Officer in Indian Audit & Accounts Department under CAG

This Group B post is similar to Preference #1. The grade pay is 4800, and the post offers the same job security and promotions. It is also one of the gazetted posts.

#3 Assistant in Ministry of External Affairs

It is a 4600 grade pay post. You would probably be posted in Delhi. The post mostly involves just office work. There is also a good chance of getting a foreign posting while working in the Ministry of External Affairs.

#4 Assistant in Ministry of Railway

This Group B 4600 grade pay job mainly involves administrative work. Posting will be in Delhi. There is also the additional perk of free AC passes for employees.

#5 Inspector of Income Tax in CBDT

This is a highly reputed Group C post, which involves both desk job and field work. The grade pay is 4600. Posting can happen in any of the major cities.
