Higher Education Commission (HEC) has launched a Job Portal (http://phdjobs.hec.gov.pk) that aims to improve matching Ph.D. scholars with job opportunities.
The Job Portal has been built on Rozee.pk, Pakistan’s largest job placement platform, with over 30,000 active jobs and an addition of around 1,000 new jobs daily.
The portal will provide Ph.D. scholars access to opportunities in academia, research institutions, and in the private sector that can leverage the unique skills they have developed in pursuance of their Ph.D. degree.
Over time, the increased use of portal will provide HEC with job data analytics that will help shape future policies. The portal has been linked to the unemployed Ph.D. data collected earlier this year.
The Ph.D. scholars who are already registered with the HEC now have profiles created on Rozee.pk. These Ph.D. scholars can start taking advantage of Rozee’s sophisticated job matching algorithm and job alerting features. Ph.D. scholars that have not already registered with the HEC can register themselves directly on the job portal.
The candidate’s profile has been enhanced to include specific areas that are relevant to academia/research job seekers (i.e. publications, teaching experience, grant experience, etc.)
Ph.D. scholars are encouraged to complete their enhanced profiles on the job portal in order to improve overall job matching results and provide more information to prospective employers.
Universities will be provided access to the job portal and have been requested to post their academic jobs on the portal as well. Employers already using Rozee will have access to the Ph.D. Scholars that have been added to Rozee’s candidate database.
