Hello AJITKUMAR1990

While your profile looks decent on paper and can succeed with good execution of written application/essays.
GRE score looks good- since you have already taken the test, and the score is good. Both tests are equally acceptable.

Cannot speculate much on these career goals, as these are the most sought after roles but very few people get it. You will need to prove to the adcom why this role is the next logical step in your career and why you will be a good fit to achieve the said role.
EDIT 1 after your additional remarks
Unarguably, career break for GMAT is one of the worst things applicants can do for their application. Look at it this way- everyone else is balancing GMAT and applications along with a full time job, then taking such a break makes your case much weaker. You have time between now and the next year- I would recommend taking up a full time position as soon as possible otherwise your gap will become longer (unless you are applying to R3 this year).

You may want to read here on what to focus on to make your profile strong and here to add to your research on career goals.
