Situation of jobs in Pakistan

Pakistan is located along the Arabian Sea and has a coastline spanning approx. 650 miles is a developing south asian country with countless resources and valuable assets. Pakistan is the world 27th largest economy and its consider one of the largest in south asian countries has been forecast to grow 5.5% in 2009 but due to factors like power shortage, flawed policies and lack of sincere leadership, economic growth chances a little slim. Directly getting effected by this situation is Job market in Pakistan and causing unemployment rates to grow to 15 percent and ranks 51 among the countries with high unemployment rates.

Situation of jobs in pakistan is getting more difficult and the conditions are not as good as it was used to be and the main factors behind the growth in unemployment rate are power shortage and energy crisis, Law and order situation, Political instability, lack of capable policy makers, defective educational system and lack of facilities and infrastructure.

Our economy is underdeveloped and is not very attractive for the job seekers. Job hunt is getting tougher and opportunities are very limited. A successful job hunt in the current economic crisis is not easy anywhere in the world and situation of jobs in Pakistan is no exception. Fresh graduates complain that either they don't get the jobs they deserve or instead of a permanent post they are getting offers for temporary position in organizations. Unfortunately, we are one of the developing countries where the job market is considered to be saturated, which makes it difficult for the young graduates to have promising start of a career.

Jobs creation is very critical to pakistan economic growth. Situation of jobs in pakistan is not as bright as one would wants but the future outlook of jobs in Pakistan are still very promising. We have lots of potential to grow. we have two most important seaports and great amount of assets and resources to develop and improve the situation of jobs in Pakistan. With proper planning in big cities like Islamabad, Karachi and Lahore, political stability, promoting research in agriculture, overcoming the power crisis, providing facilities and good infrastructure to industrial sector and improving education system, we can easily increase the growth rate of economy and lower the unemployment rate in Pakistan.

Policy makers would hopefully implement policies that create opportunities and favorable conditions for the new comers in job market and Fresh graduates should work hard to develop and polish their unique skills and expertise. There are many sectors like IT, banking, telecom, construction and few others, in which our young work force can participate and take an active part in the development of their country.
