Best and Worst Cities for Job Growth: Poll

Hi fellows :)…I was reading Best and Worst Cities for Job Growth and thought to have a poll for our cities to see what LMB readers think of Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad in that regard generally and specifically, you can give your own list of most popular jobs and average salary of your city.

    Apart from the Polls , I think Karachi is the best place in Pakistan for career growth. But Lahore is Lahore.

    I actually came back to Lahore from Islamabad after spending more than a year there just b’coz Lahore rulez. No doubt Karachi is better but the Quality of Life is not there. Lahorites should be thankful to its roads, power-shortages (in contrast to khi), water and other civic amenities.

    I think Karachi is number one in terms of job Growth, specially with referance to Financial sector. That is the reason you will find so much influx of people in Karachi from across the country. There is no one coming from Karachi to work in Lahore or very few to Islamabad. So Karachi Wins!!

    I think, Lahore is the coolest place for job growth. Karachi, due to its volatile political scenario, is one step behind, but still not bad. Isb has limited opptions job wise.

    I believe people who’ve voted for Lahore have done so out of sheer biasness – this blog is after all frequented more by Lahoris than non-Lahoris.
    As per what I know from my own experiences and that of my friends, Karachi and to some extent Islamabad is better than Lahore in terms of job growth and avg salary. But that doesn’t mean, people haven’t done well by staying in Lahore – chances of job-growth is something that cannot really be predicted and/or quantified.

    ppl voting on basis of their association with native city. mY vote is for lahore due to some *genuine* reasons.

    I also think that the votes shown here are biased. Me thinks that Karachi is the best city for career growth.

    When Pakistanis think of Jobs, they think of Karachi.

    Hierarchy is,
    small cities–> 1. rawalpindi, isb, 2. lhr, 3. karachi 4. Duabai etc or (phurrrrr amreekaa) ;)
    , growth step wise is from small city to the biggest city. Karachi got most of the head offices. Karachi is bigger than other cities, so obvoiusly it has more jobs there. Job growth could be same as lhr and isb, but average salaries in khi are lower than lhr. Isb/pindi with lowest average salaries of all.

    Its not biased, i guess. u can pick any thing, like labourers? they are cheap in karachi , but in lahore, they are not.
    I wish i could be more pragmatic :)
