Best city for career growth?

Lahore metblogs did a poll on which is the best city for career growth. I thought we’d also participate in the same poll. So here goes.

Which city, out of Karachi, Lahore or Islamabad is the best for Career Growth?

Also, you can give your own list of most popular jobs and average salary of your city.

My apologies: due to a fault in html, the actual poll didn’t make it to the post.

    Not doubt Karachi. but Lahore is emerging pretty fast as far as IT industry is concerned, coz of the same damn security reasons. and IT is one of the fastest growing industry in recent times along with the Banking industry.

    far star: very rightly said about the IT industry. the following figures are from PSEB website about the number of *substantial* IT companies in each city, and lahore, isb are not far behind karachi in this regard.

    384 Karachi
    276 Islamabad
    353 Lahore
    69 others

    As an expat pakistani looking to move back to PK, I’d be interested in knowing what average salaries/benefits are like in the 3 major cities for professionals (preferably in the IT industry). Could KMB look into conducting an anonymous poll on that, or could users comment anonymously on their job, experience and salary? I think it would be an interesting and useful comparison for all. Thanks.

    if u know ur work, then there is everything for a professional person in KHI.

    You can be disillusioned by hangamay, traffic, power outage, etc, but everything else is fine.

    Though I’m a Karachiite but I guess it’s Lahore for it’s IT, Media and Showbiz industry
