A job portal has launched for the Ph.D. scholars by Higher Education Commission (HEC). Here is the link for it http://phdjobs.hec.gov.pk.
The Ph.D. scholars can use and find jobs matching their expertise. It is basically built on Pakistan’s biggest job search platform, Rozee.pk. An opportunity will be provided to Ph.D. scholars to find opportunities in academia, research institutions, and in the private sector.
In time, the more this portal is used, it will provide HEC with job data analytics that will help in shaping future policies. The unemployed Ph.D. data that was collected earlier this year was linked with the portal. Ph.D. scholars who are registered with HEC have their profiles created on Rozee.pk. Now they can make use of the portal and find the perfect job that fits their expertise.
The profile of the candidates have been improved and now include different areas that have relevance to the job seekers academia/research that is publications, teaching experience, and grant experience.
In order to enhance the overall job matching results, Ph.D. scholars are encouraged to complete their profiles on Rozee.pk. Access to the job portal will also be given to the universities and they have been asked to post their academic jobs on the portal.
