For working in Indian Postal services you will not need any particular course to do. For clerical and assistant level jobs, you will require to pass 10+2 examination and for Officers level jobs, you will require a graduation in any subject. Competitive examinations are held for recruitment. For officers level jobs, you will have to appear for the Indian Civil Services examination. You will have to apply on seeing the recruitment advertisements in leading daily newspapers and Employment News.
In Doordarshan and radio, there are many jobs. Now, you will have to identify which job would be suitable for you. Ideally, you should choose the right career by the following steps:
Step 1: Assess your true abilities, interests and personality. Take the help of professional career counselors.
