What are the best government jobs for women?

1 Answer

Women are doing well in every field. In the Business world, one-third of entrepreneurs are women. Whatever may be the status of women in society, she is the natural homemaker. Many women give priority to their family and sacrifice their career and growth for the sake of children and family.

Women need better work-life balance because a woman considers herself successful only when she can handle her job and home equally well. Many women prefer to leave their jobs whenever they feel they are not getting enough time to take care of their kids and family.

Government jobs offer a lot of flexibility in terms of leaves and timings. Many women prefer Grade II and Grade III government jobs, where you have less responsibility and more flexibility. There is no doubt that women can serve in any capacity and they can do it better than men at any point in time. 

In this article, I am not talking about UPSC cadres like IAS, IPS, and IFS where we have many successful women. We are discussing women who are not very ambitious about career but like to work to keep themselves financially independent and support their family. 

Government is providing Special Provisions for Women to encourage women employment in the public sector with some relaxations in age and application fee. Public sector jobs help women to have a better work-life balance with extraordinary leaves and maternity leave. Moreover, they offer equal growth opportunity to grow based on time-bound promotions.
