Hi, @Ganesh‍ Welcome to CrazyEngineers. Did you complete just 1st or 2nd year or engineering / B.E. degree before taking a gap? Is it possible for you to contact college authorities about re-joining from 3rd year? Also, is it possible for you to start fresh from 1st year? I think that is still possible if you have completed your Class XII and take the entrance exams.

Thank u mam for your reply.. Actually I completed my BE in Mechanical in 2016 but problem is that , I completed my BE in 8 years instead of 4 years.

That's not a problem at all. There are engineers employed in the industry even after completing their graduation in their age of 30s and 40s. You need to actively start looking for a job. Have you figured your area of interest? First, do that and start applying to companies. While doing so, side by side, you need to start preparing for entrance exams of any government jobs you might be interested in.

List of government jobs for mechanical engineering graduates - 

Indian Railway, Indian Armed Forces, ISRO, DRDO  and associated PSUs under Ministry of Defense such as BAARC, BHEL, BEML, BNPM, BPCL, BEL etc.

@Ganesh‍ - You did not mention the actual reason for the gap - was it because of circumstances that were not in your control? 

If you found ourself weak in engineering subjects; I'd recommend you to take a look at jobs available in non-engineering domains - marketing, sales, finance etc. I've few acquaintances who didn't do well in their engineering studies; but found the right job that matched their skills and interests. 

If your current financial status allows; look for an MBA course with specialisation in the area of your interest. 

If PG is not an option for you; and you wish to stick to technical field you might want to enrol for skill building courses offered by private institutes that have a proven track record of placements. That should give you a good start. 

Start small and keep learning as much as you can. Engineering marks don't really matter once you've found your place in the industry. It's the entry that's the most difficult; and you'll do well if you keep learning. All the best! ? ? 

Thank u sir for Guidence. Actually i have visited cad institute , the owner said that as per your poor educational background in future there is very less chances of growth & don't expect any job opportunity from MNC. If i start my carrer from small scale company , & side by side start prepairing my self is there any chances in future  to join MNC , after i get experience ..

There is always chance to join MNC. They just need talent.
If you have experience of 6-10 years on paper and knowledge of 1-2 year that doesn't help you. You have to make sure that you have knowledge worth of your experience not only on paper.
