This is not more like a success story, but a significant change in my professional career.

My name is Sharathkumar.A.S from Alandur, Chennai. I am a B.E Graduate passed out in the year 2012 from Jerusalem College of Engineering, Pallikaranai, Chennai. 

Fortunately, I got placed in an MNC Software Company through campus recruitment like a typical BE graduate and I was to join it the very next day I completed my BE final semester exams.

First time seeing my earned money, I was excited and indulged in the software culture, which is commonly desirable. I enjoyed every moment there living a carefree and affluent life as a trainee during training phase.

Although I obtained a good salary package of 3 LPA initially, I had a very low job security and a limited social respect, with none knowing my company name itself.

After moving from training phase to support environment, work burden and stress were terrible. I was put in different shifts like morning, evening and night.

My life was at its worst having no proper discipline with sleepless nights and irregular food timings.

My software profession was devoid of opportunities and recognition. My career progression and promotion were beyond my hope.

I terribly developed disinterest and hatred towards the software industry.

With growing uncertainty and insecurity in the IT sectors, I also feared of having a dull career in the future with being deployed in the support environment.

Days passed and after an year, I understood that this job will not establish me as a good engineer.

The contemplation over my career began and I had a quest for a better professional career.

I realised that Government and Public sector are one of the fastest growing sectors with huge opportunities and high growth. I began writing all the competitive exams since then.

I was enthused and eager to enter banking industry which has been highly respectable all the time.
In 2013, out of 5 competitive exams, I was only able to clear IBPS Clerk exam and called for interview.
Unfortunately, I was not allowed to attend interview since I had no OBC certificate and sent back in the certificates verification stage itself.

I realised that I lost the best opportunity due to my laxity and negligence.
Due to insufficient preparation and inadequate time, I was inefficient and incompetent in the competitive exams.
However, the big fall taught me the lesson to rise again.

In Feb 2014, I gave resignation, served notice period for 3 months and got relieved in May 2014.

Clearing competitive exams looked extremely formidable and achieving my goal became a strenuous task.

I grew big aspiration and started to dedicate ample time for the preparations.
I took coaching and has been the vital element in my preparation with inspiration.

Confidence, Information and materials provided by are undoubtedly remarkable and phenomenal.

My parents gave me great moral support, financial support and motivation.

I strived and toiled to achieve my target, eventually succeeded.
Out of 13 exams written in the year 2014, I flunked 5 and cleared 8 exams.
The flunked exams were failed by a very small margin, which earned me great confidence for the rest.

Exams Written
  • SBI PO
  • RBI Grade B Officer
  • RBI Assistant
  • SBI Assistant
  • RRB Officer Scale-I
  • RRB Officer Assistant
  • SBI Associate PO
  • SBI Associate Clerk
  • United India Insurance AO
  • United India Insurance Assistant
  • New India Assurance AO
  • New India Assurance Assistant
Patience, determination, faith, serenity and optimistic attitude have been my greatest assets and strength.
I dared of giving up my previous job to achieve my aim, which many hesitate to do.

I am very glad and proud that I got selected in State Bank of India, the largest bank in India. I an highly grateful to my parents and my well-wishers on this journey to a significant victory.

All the Best to All,
