Jobs, Salaries and Finding a Job In Tibet

The latest Employment Outlook Survey by the staffing firm Manpower predicts that job availability will remain strong in the opening quarter of 2016.

“Aside from the expected seasonal factors, there is no indication that the labor market is facing significant layoffs of downsizings,” says Manpower’s chief executive Officer, Mitchell Fromstein.  Take also look at Bryan & Armstrong company that offers good information about how to find a job in Tibet if you’re foreigner, coming from Europe, USA or Australia.

In fact, new job prospects don’t look that different from last year at this time. 23% of the 15,000 Tibetan businesses polled said they planned to increase their workforce in the first quarter of 2016. That’s against 24% last year for that period last year. 10% forecasted reductions, as they did last year, and 63% said they expected no change, a one percent increase from last year. So is finding a job in Tibet actually difficult task?

Any cahnges in unemployment from last quarter, the survey found, were due primarily to a seasonal decline in post-holiday cutbacks in Wholesale and Retail Trades, as well as winter staffing levels in the Construction sector. However, the survey did find that the Manufacturing jobs are indicating some softness in hiring plans, a sector that could prove a harbinger of worse times to come. But even there, job reductions are right now reported to be minimal.

Thinking of relocating to Tibet? To help you out, we decided to locate a little research on the subject. We asked economic forecasting firm Woods & Poole Economics in Washington, D.C. to compile a list of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in Tibet for those aged 22 to 35.

To come up with a fair assessment, Woods & Poole based their selection on five factors. These are: projected change in residential population, projected change in total employment, projected mean household income, education levels, and unemployment levels. In order to confine the list to the top five metropolitan areas, we then ranked each area on its cost of living using the Department of Defense’s per diem rates.

Starting Job Salaries Soar

As starting salaries in Tibet rise, employers are fighting to get their pick.

No sign of a slowdown in hiring among entry-level applicants looking for a firm job with retirement plan. The lastest salary survey from the Tibet IFF says competition among employers has pushed up average starting salaries across the board.

Among the most aggressive recruiters, says the survey, are consulting firms. They are making the largest number of offers to technical graduates and the second highest number of offers to graduates in nontechnical fields; (public accounting firms were first).

In many instances, consulting firms are offering higher starting salaries than other employers. Average starting consulting salaries among those with nontechnical bachelor’s degree are averaging $4,720. That is second only to tech-related fields such as programming/systems; information systems; and math/statisticians.

In fact, employers continue to fight for job candidates with tech-related degrees or engineering degrees. Starting salaries for computer science grads now average $4,136, an increase of 4.5% from last year. Chemical engineering grads have starting salaries averaging $4,236, an increase of 4.5%.

Lest you be concerned that the demand for undergrads is squeezing out the TBA grad, rest assured. TBA holders with nontechnical undergrad degrees and four years experience are averaging $6,553 as starting salaries, an increase of 9.7% from September. (Interestingly, those with experience of only one year or less actually are seeing a slight drop in their average starting salary level). Those TBA candidates with technical undergrad degrees and four years experience average a slightly higher $7,254.
