Thumbs up Re: Can I get a job in IBM with 4 years study gap?


As such there is no specific eligibility criteria posted by IBM on the study gap but usually companies like IBM won't encourage study gaps and they will make sure only when a proper reason is given the candidate will be taken in. So, for the aptitude test you will be allowed to give if you satisfy the below eligibility criteria,

-> 60% above throughout studies i.e 10th, 12th and UG/PG degree.

-> No current backlogs.

-> Good technical and communication skills.

Once you clear the aptitude test you will move to the interview round where there is 90% chance of you being questioned on your study gap. So, make sure that you will be prepare for this question and if they find that your reason is valid then probably you will be taken in for the job!

Hi I have attended the IBM IT support interview and previous I have a 1 year of experience in IT Support role. But I have a academic gap between my 10Th and Diploma,It due to some of my family financial issues. But I My resume only about the academic qualification and I have not mention passed out years.Is there any problem with this. They have asked only about the experience and not about my academics.

There is no such issue on the year gap between intermediate and degree.But you must have the certifite reason for that.You can apply for IBM recruitment exam.There eligibility is-

1-60% in 10th.
2-60% in 12th.
3-60% in graduation without current backlogs.
