Agriculture related professional courses are good, when it comes to helping land a Government sector job! While there are number of good courses that 12th Science students may pursue, a good number of them are much saturated. So, it becomes pretty difficult to land well paying Government jobs, in case of those courses. Agriculture related courses are whole lot different! This field is less saturated and there are number of Government job openings waiting for graduates! In this article, I will be dealing with Technical Officers’ job posts in the Indian Agricultural Research Institute. I will provide complete details regarding the educational qualifications that one must have in order to apply for the post of Technical Officer.
First of all, let us take a look at the basic types of posts that I will be covering in this article. Here, I will cover 3 posts- Senior Technical Officer (field/farm technician), Technical Assistant (field/farm technician) and Technical Assistant (Library Services).
These posts are technical ones. Now, let us take each one of these posts and check out the educational qualifications required in case of each of them.
