I am a btech ece student , currently in the final year..i have got placed with a package of 3.1 lacs

I am a btech ece student , currently in the final year..i have got placed with a package of 3.1 lacs. I also took coaching for CAT 2012 because i felt that the subjects that the mba exams focus on (english and maths) are required anywhere and everywhere you go. I will be appearing for CAT2012 and the IIFT exam as well. Now as far as GATE is concerned , i am not even interested a tad in it.. But being a girl i feel i should in the end settle for a govt job.. Now as i very very fond of reading newspapers and i also like keeping myself abreast with the latest happenings, i feel i should go in for civil services. Now what do i do ? How do i get to know what exactly is it that i am cut out for? I also know that civil services requires dogged hard-work. So i want to know whether it is wise to directly go for the civil services preparation or get a job experience for a year or two and then go in for the kill or should i just leave civil services as a career option.

Dear Student,
Greetings!
It's normal to be confused at this stage. Do not entertain thoughts like being a girl you should settle down in a government job. Women are doing good in all types of professions. I think you should go ahead with the job you have now secured. When you start working your mind will be more clear. What work you are cut out for currently is something you will discover once you begin work. Attempting civil services when you are not sure of liking it is not advisable. You may benefit by talking to someone who has cleared the civil services exams. Work which you enjoy doing is what you are most likely cut out for. Best Wishes!
