One of the things that the educated generation of Bangladesh is most interested in is establishing itself as a government employee. But at the present time getting a government job is like getting a golden deer. It is difficult to get a job through intense competition. People face huge competition in the hope of getting any government job.
The government job now goes up to grade which was included in 4th grade now 20th grade is divided into 4th grade. For example, what used to be first class is now 1st to 9th grade and second class is 10th grade only 10th grade is second class. 11th-16th grade is the third class, then 16-20th grade is the last fourth class.

The 27 types of jobs employed by the PSC are called cadre and the other government jobs employed by the PSC are called non-cadre jobs.
Non-cadre jobs are called 1st class in case of grade 9 and 2nd class in case of grade 10. Almost all cadres can go up to the lowest grade, while in non-cadre most of the posts are block posts.
BCS cadres are basically of two types General (Police, Admin, Foreign Affairs etc.) and Technical (Education, Health, Agriculture, Roads and Urban Development etc.).
Anyone can work in General Cadre with examination from any subject, but in order to work in Technical Cadre, one has to have educational qualification in certain subject. For example, no one can work as a government doctor without an MBBS degree.
The way to recognize them is that any government office has 4 types of staff. Which includes the cadre, the officer below him the employee below him. The 1st and 2nd of them are called Gazetted Officers. Those who are 3rd class are also officers. They are employees of 4th class.
