Points to Ponder:

As per rozeepk website statistical data, we may analyze the following points:

I.T industry is the hottest industry for job opportunities, it makes sense that universities are still offering the old school degrees like BSC Computer Sciences or BCS and bundle of I.T institutes have been operating to provide I.T related certifications and diplomas. One may also analyze that having an I.T education could be an edge in the market for getting jobs even in the recession especially when your skills prove you.

On the contrary, the high rise in the I.T industry jobs on rozee.pk could also be because I.T industry mostly uses the easiest channel for posting job opportunities, like internet job portals for posting jobs online as the most convenient way to communicate the relevant professionals.

In telecom and banking sector, the low percentages are observed because of certain reasons like:

  • Recession
  • No further investments
  • Law and order situations
  • Reference based jobs
  • Internal hiring’s
  • Outsourced to Recruitment consultants

Lahore & Karachi are still offering much potential in job opportunities than Islamabad in diversified industries on rozee.pk website.

We cannot ignore the power of Reference and networking based jobs are in hype and mostly companies even do not bother to advertise for the particular position. So, you may not find much jobs online than within your contacts or connections.
