Inspiring Success Story of Vivek Kumar

Hello Guys, today I am going to share my success story of clearing EPFO SSA. My name is Vivek Kumar and I belong to a small village named Manjhi under District Hoshiarpur (Punjab). I had completed my graduation ( in Computer Science Engineering) in 2014 and just after that, I started preparing for banking exams.

 I cleared prelims of many banking exams but could not make it into the final list.

In 2019, I cracked the SBI Apprentice exam. After that, I worked for one year in the SBI branch Bajwara (Hoshiarpur). After one year the SBI relieved us. That was a bad moment for all apprentices because we never expected this from SBI.

Finally, the day came when I got selected in EPFO SSA. That was the happiest moment for me.

Reading newspapers will also help you in GK preparation and in Interviews/GD. I used to read The Hindu editorial section daily. Also, the Oliveboard’s New Pattern English Tests helped me a lot.
