Qualifications
Xth :-64%
XII th:- 82%
Graduation :- 65% English (Hons) Humanities
Current work:- income tax inspector
Age:- 24 years
Nature of work:- not related to corporate work experience in anyway, it is government sector work. The work is divided into two categories

Assessment Section 
A job in this section includes work related to desk job details that come with the title of Income Tax Inspector.
You will be responsible for assessing income tax that people, company or partnership firms are liable to pay.
You will also have to handle refund claims and TDS (Tax Deduction at Source) queries Non-Assessment Section 
A job in this section will subject you to field work.

Inspectors employed in this section can be a part of the rapid response team that conducts raids.

The ITIs who are given non-assessment duties usually have to perform only clerical duties.

Their job is limited to filing official paperwork and occasionally accompanying raid teams

My query:- I always wanted to do an MBA as it was my dream to work for a private company. Due to financial constraints, I was not able to apply for MBA in foreign universities. I had no interest in Indian MBA as I always wanted to work in a foreign country. Also Indian MBA had very low chances to get me placed in a foreign firm. Private firms in India without an MBA gives very less salary and high load which would not have given me time to make my profile for a foreign MBA.
Therefore, I decided to pursue a government job and finance my future MBA from that money.
I intend to do an MBA after 5 years. I can score score very well in GMAT and TOEFL analysed from official mocks that I have given. I am interested in doing MBA from Canada so that I can get permanent residency. I am aiming for "average" b schools in Canada only.
Please I am in dire need of help. I have 5 years at my disposal. Please guide me on how can I make my profile in these 5 years so that the adcoms don't reject me. Also honestly tell me whether I am eligible for doing MBA from an average Business School in Canada.
Thank you and God bless you !

Hi there, thanks for reaching out. Great that you have the benefit of time!

To get you up to speed, you should download and read our start-to-finish guide, in particular the sections on fundamentals of an MBA candidacy (https://shop.mbamission.com/products/mb ... dacy-guide) and long-term planning (https://shop.mbamission.com/products/mb ... ning-guide).

Otherwise I think your focus areas should be:

1) GMAT. You'll want to target an above average score for your target schools, especially since averages are typically increasing!
2) Business coursework. Since you have a humanities background, and to further boost your academics (since your GPA seems low), I would take at least two supplemental business courses before you apply. They can be online, but they should be ones where you receive a grade or at least a passing certificate.
3) Boosting your work leadership. Seek out as much extra responsibility as you can at work, ideally getting at least one promotion before you apply. Try to gain international experience (though not sure this is possible in a government role).
4) Adding some community service / extracurricular activities to round out your profile. Ideally ones that allow you to take a lead role, and/or relate to your future career goals.
5) Over time (less important right now), research and engage with your target schools.

Hope this helps, and best of luck!
