practical job opportunities. Unfortunately, in Pakistan this
practical oriented teaching, so it is likely to observe thatthose candidates who are fresh graduates are extremely non familiar with thepractical and hands on working skills requires in an organization. Companieshesitate to offer job to such candidates as they already can hire someone whois experienced . As a result of this, the fresh candidates are more likely toget rejected most of the time.3) Less Career Opportunities:Career opportunities arise when the industrial development isat peak. Such countries which are continuously developing industries and arealso attracting multinational companies to invest are more likely to haveseveral job opportunities. Unfortunately, in Pakistan this happens in reverse.
Few years back the industrial sector was growing rapidly and many internationalbrands started their operations in Pakistan. But as a result of the law andorder situation most of them discontinued and many of them moved to othercountries which can provide enough safety. This results in the existence of avery few industries with very less career opportunities.4) Lack Of InterestIn Industrial Sector:As per the mind set of our nation, most of the people areattracted towards some specific fields such as Engineering, Medical or Finance.No awareness is provided towards such filed which are neglected in Pakistan. Asan agricultural state, the opportunity of developing the agriculture industryis vast in Pakistan but unfortunately no steps has been taken to develop thisindustry.
The agriculture is carried out through the old traditional methodsand a very less percent of cultivation is done as per the capability. Such asagriculture there are many other fields towards which the attention of thenation must be diverted like Tourism, Music, Fine Arts, Journalism, Acting, andFashion etc. Consequences:As a result of increasing unemployment in Pakistan, there areseveral consequences the nation is growing through, some of them are mentionedbelow:1) Stress:Due to lack of employment in Pakistan, people are facing alot of mental trauma which results in stress.
People are more likely to be indepression for most of the time, thinking of ways to rectify their financialcrisis and still went in vain. Stress creates depression and depression inresult can produce lots of health issues. 2) Increased Crime:While trying to cope with the crisis created due tounemployment, the sad and stressful people sometime indulge themselves inseveral crimes, some of them are serious ones like target killing, kidnapping , robbery and corruption.
3) Increased DrugsConsumption:When most of the candidates after obtaining an optimum levelof education failed to find a suitable job got collapse with stress. Thought ofbeing unable to support their family of fulfill their need creates extremedepression, to counter this effect most of the people start to consume drugs tofeel relief from their responsibilities. 4) IncreasedSuicide Ratio:According to an analysis, the rate of suicide has increasedin Pakistan from past few decades. One of the main reasons for this is unemployment.
Recommendations:To overcome this situation of unemployment in Pakistan various ways canbe find out some of these are: There should be plans introduced by the government for controlling the population for at least one decade. This can create a huge boost in job opportunities. Education system and quality of education in professional institutes and Universities must be revised; the education system should emphasis on providing the student better practical knowledge and hand on experience so that they can survive in the market. Government should focus on improvement of each and every sector individually especially agriculture so that people could not be forced to move from rural to urban areas for getting better job opportunities. Development of rural areas is required to prevent the migration of people from those places so that they can get the opportunity of job without moving from there.Conclusion:National crisis of unemployment affects a hugepopulation of Pakistan especially the youth generation who are the futureleader of our country.
The crisis of unemployment results in un developednation. Though government has taken too many steps regarding to remove thisproblem from Pakistan but still unable to provide enough jobs to the nation.It’s time for people of Pakistan to come along with government together andface this problem with unity.
