ISRO recruitment notification for the year 2021 is yet to be issued. The organisation is currently under the process of conducting interviews for candidates shortlisted for job advertisements issued last year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, several interviews and written examinations to fill vacancies are yet to be conducted. “As the COVID-19 pandemic situation still prevails, the fresh dates for the conduct of written examination have not been finalized. Once finalized, the same will be intimated to the candidates through their registered e-mails and ISRO website,” says ISRO for vacancies notified in HSFC. However, in the meanwhile, candidates can take a look at the job roles the Indian Space Research Organisation usually hires for.
The norms for recruitment and the career prospects in ISRO were recently updated in the official website.
