There are two types of government jobs in Pakistan: gazetted and non-gazetted jobs. Gazetted jobs are those above 16th grade. The jobs are said to be gazetted as you get notifications about their availability in the government gazette. For you to get these jobs you have to sit the CSS and PMS examinations. The exams cover a wide area including current affairs, Pakistan affairs, Islam, mathematics, science, history and IQ. If you are planning on taking the examination you have to develop a reading culture.
When applying for the gazetted jobs you should note that the federal public service commission is the one that takes the CSS exams for the government jobs in federal departments. If interested in working in the provincial level, the examinations are handled by the provincial public service commission.
Non-gazetted jobs in Pakistan
The National Testing Service (NTS) and ETEA are hired by the government to help with the recruitment. The two are testing agencies and undertake the physical and written tests. Once you have passed the tests, you have to attend an interview in the relevant government department.
Powerful government jobs
While there are many government jobs that you can choose from, there are some that are more powerful and respected than others. If you like status, you should go for the powerful jobs and they include: Pak army, navy, NAB, IB, Pakistan air force, ISI, police, judiciary, ASF, NTS, CSS, and PCS jobs.
How to increase your chances of getting government jobs
There is no magic bullet to getting government jobs. All you have to do is prepare for them. One of the ways of preparing yourself is reading and watching videos that improve your knowledge on current and Pakistan affairs. You should also work at improving your EQ and IQ level.
If you are planning of joining the army or police you should pay close attention to your physical fitness. You should exercise daily and go for medical checkups. If you have a medical condition, have it fixed before the exam date. This is to eliminate the chances of being eliminated due to poor health.
This is what you need to know about government jobs in Pakistan. One of the worst mistakes that you can make when getting the jobs is trying to bribe your way in. Remember that Pakistan is very strict on corruption and if caught trying to bribe someone you not only lose your chance of getting the job, you can also get prosecuted.
