    The 'unemployed' and 'Medical profession' are mentioned separately in the poll, so being an 'Unemployed' one can't belong to a 'Medical profession', I hope you got the answer.

    Nice to see top firms recruiting from Pakistani universities

    One of my friends from lums last year went to EY and another went to McKinsey which is great

    I think only a few years ago it was next to impossible for Pak universities so great development

    well since youre a finance guy and i havent used it for a while have a quick qs.

    if i have a compay's 3 statement projection and am being asked for a indicative valuation how you would you go about it? (company is not listed and there are no comparables listed)

    and how would i get the ev-ebitda multiple based on this.

    i know its pretty basic but its been ages since i ued it and dont wanna give someone a wrong answer

    They do create hurdles for other bodies but I do understand ICAPs point of view. Other bodies are so lenient that they just want to get students and have made everything so easy. I have seen their exam papers and I swear its not like the examiner is not even trying to pose any difficulty for the students. And their training requirements asks them to do any job which will count as valid whereas Im about to slave away the next 3 and a half years in an audit firm where you go at 8 in the morning and return at 11 in the night. Absolute torture and slavery to be honest but that shows in the quality in the end.

    If you have some minutes please write back.

    Hey IS
    Well that is a very good area of study (Environmental Science / Sustainable Development). Due to the Paris accord, and Canadian Govt of Liberals pursuance on sustainable energy development, oil & gas companies all over canada are going through a study to reduce the GH emissions. As a result, a lot of incentives are given to them by the Canadian Govt for that. Hence why I think your field of study is very important, not only in Oil & Gas sector, but in Power Generation as well.

    By the time you graduate, there will be a lot more incentives for companies to hire from your area of study. I don't know about US (since Trump is a little reluctant to proceed with Paris accord). But in Canada, they are trying their best to be just like the Scandinavians and go for alternate energy options. Your next step is to get a 3.0 GPA from your university and keep applying for summer jobs/co-op terms. With co-op terms you can get wide variety of experience even before you graduate. Inshallah by then, you would have a clear understanding of what you want to do and where you want to go.

    I work as a Pediatrician (child specialist) in Houston. For now, I only take care of kids in the hospital and don't do any clinic work. I work with a lot with students and other physicians in training. Surprised to see such a small % of medical folks in a predominantly Desi forum!

    Oh come on.Putting Vets in the same sentence as hakims of all people , like seriously ?? Did anyone of them accidentally killed your cat or smth?
    Oh you know very well why I got offended.It's a derogatory word mostly used by paindoos in rural Punjab and nearby areas to address a Vet.
    I wonder what we ever did to them to warrant such a reputation?

    I knew the term was offensive. I just never knew, before today, that you were a vet, which is why your being offended makes sense now.

    For the record, no vet ever hurt my cat. If anything, the cat terrifies me because I suspect it may really be a Jinn, but that's a discussion for that other thread.

    The exorbitant prices may explain the hate.

    I never take my cat to the vet though. She frolics on the hill outside, killing mice, chasing birds, and may actually revert to the wild soon. The cat that is, not the vet.

    I wouldn't be surprised. There was a Jinn on Twitter a few years ago.

    Fear not, the witching hour has passed, and dawn isn't too far away. Those creaks you hear are not footsteps, they are just the normal expansion and contraction of the frame of the house.

    That is not a cat meowing outside the door. It is just your imagination getting the better of you...
