Can environmental science student apply in FBR or FIA?
I am a student of Environmental Sciences 6th symaster but in Pakistan we just have jobs at university level. All the agencies and industries already have their environmental specialist hence our departmental students are jobless. Why this subject is not at school or college level? I think if we want to keep environment safe then we should furnish the minds of students in early age like at school and college level. If Pakistan have started this program then it’s responsibility of government to increase the worth of this programme i observe public give value to those things that have scope by earning point of view in that specific region.
In this blog you have mentioned that we can do teaching after BS environmental Sciences but literally in Pakistan we cannot do job at school or college after this degree. Girls are able to do job after m. Phil or PhD at university level. Our prime minister always talk about environment but this programme don’t have scope in reality. A lot of students after graduated in this programme are jobless because industries already have their environmental specialist. We should try to increase first of all worth of this subject then we can do something to save our environment that is great blessing of Allah.I think we should arise the value of this subject at initial level of study in our country like other Sciences subjects.
