I am a Chemical Engineer having four years experience working in Reliance Industries. Currently, I am involved in commissioning a mammoth petrochemicals plant and the project is nearing its final stages. I have to work in 12 hour shifts (both morning and night shifts, with no certainty of going home from work) and the work here is physically and mentally demanding. When I get home, I find myself totally drained. I find myself short of time and energy to prepare for my GMAT examination.

I am planning to take up a relatively less stressful job with the Government of India, by clearing the SSC CGL exam. This job has minimal workload with fixed working hours (8 hours daily and 5 days a week). This would give me plenty of time to easily prepare for GMAT.

Do you think this is a positive step? How will I convince the AdCom regarding the reason why I left my job in petrochemicals and joined the public sector instead?

It is just a opinion
I feel like if your target is to reach a point then you should follow straight path rather than going in circular direction. Cracking SSC would also take sincere amount of effort. If you have time on Saturdays and Sundays then invest it in gmat preparation.
A wiser option would be change of job and then study or take ur time and prepare for gmat at your own pace.
