    Salam,

    Didn't really find an appropriate place to thread this. However.

    Having recently discovered the NESCOM company and its projects in aero eng and learning that it employs over 60,000 people I thought it'd give me a good chance to get into Pakistan.

    Could anyone give me an indication as to what kind of basic wage I could expect if I was to find a graduate job there realated to aeronautical engineering. I'll be completing my Beng aeronautical degree in 2010 from the UK and am British. Parents are Pakistani.

    I want to know if it's viable for me to be able to settle in pak ISB.

    I'm looking to suport my wife only and live in pak. I've estimated a 40-50K wage required to live in reasonable comfort renting a house in one of the sectors around H-11.

    If I can't match that I'll simply have to remain in the UK.

    And what about the rise in pay. For instance the 1st year at NESCOM promises hostel accom(which probably isnt suitable for a couple, but u never know) subsequent years would require me to find a property. Hence what kind of pay rises could I expect.

    Oh and btw, they dont seem to have a contact phone number and they dont like replying to email either.

    I'd really appreciate it if any1 could provide figures.

    Thanks for any help

    it depends on dat which designation u gonna get i applied in nescom as well before comin to uk for my masters i passed the test but in interview they rejected cuz they said dat i have 2 years of experience while they required 4 years but one of my friend told me that pay scale is very good it will be more than 40-50 k so dont worry about it but keep one thing in mind that it will be hard to give time to ur family because timings are so tough usually ppls work from 9 to 9 lol may b now its not like dat but in IT dept it was like dat .

    wow, more than 40-50 for a graduate sounds great.
    Thats about the only hurdle I can think of apart from location(ISB preferred or in the north). As long as I'm able to have decent holidays and some weekends off then I dont mind 12 hour shifts at all. Afterall it's for the benefit of Pakistan.
    If anyone could give details more specific to graduates and the aeronatical opportunities at NESCOM I'd appreciate it.
    Thanks

    About Nescom:

    OK since you are doing aeronautical engineering so you would most probably be posted to AWC(an organ of Nescom) at a post of assistant manager( SPS-8) that is if they select you.

    Your pay will be 38 K(for SPS-8).By the time you graduate it will go to 40 or more.

    There is 95 % chance that you will not live in Islamabad city.You will live somewhere else but it is still very good.Do not worry about accommodation if you are single. They will have a place for you but if you are married then you will have your name on a waiting list. You will have saturdays and sundays off.

    Nescom pays good better than other govt organizations, they have a very good Hospital.

    Regularly Check Dawn and other newspapers for Job listings. Apply to any job that is related to aeronautical engineering and the designated pay scale is SPS-8( its very important that it is SPS-8 not BPS).

    You will be promoted to Manager in 4 years after that.They have a good health care and transportation system.You will be provided relevant allowances matching your pay grade.

    Once you find such ad and apply then tell me again and i will help you further then.

    Regards

    One more thing, nowadays they won't sponsor you for further studies (except for local or chinese universities) due to major funding issues.

    All i can tell for now is that, my qualification is NOT related to the idea i am talking about..

    I just want to share/discuss it with any person of authority, since i won't trust a lower level official.

    So if anyone could help me contact such officials like AQ Khan or Samar Mubarik Mand???

    Your little smilies(emoticons?) give me a little clue as to what it is. Is it....a helmet with a built in sniper scope? Imagine if every soldier could see several km out.

    Though night vision/sniperscope etc should be a part of every Pakistani soldier's kit,
    but my to-be-invention is actually an idea for a propulsion system... Can't give any more hints....


    I asked SUPARCO to get me in touch with Samar Mubarik Mand or scientist of his stature etc, they asked me to share it with them instead, but i won't, coz even if there is less than 1% chance of it being a success, its applications would take us "above all" ... InshALLAH.
