From junior level software engineer, software engineer, mid-level engineer to senior software engineer.
A software engineer earns in six figures. If I do good I can even be the country manager in these outsourcing companies, I know few people who earn around 1,000,000 NPR as a country manager in Nepal. Along with it my salary as well as other facilities like bonus, vehicles facility also will be added. International degree such as Australian Degree is given high priority in Nepal. My foreign degree as well as work experience will easily help me to grab the opportunity. For this purpose, there are many online job portals of Nepal such as www.merojob.com, www.merocareer.com, www.merorojgari.com, www.jobsnepal.com, www.onlinejobs.comand different national daily such as Kantipur Daily, Gorakhapatra Dainik etc. frequently publishes job vacancies and I will look for this all. Also Government of Nepal publishes vacancies from time to time for government job through Lok Sewa Ayog (Public Service Commission) www.psc.gov.npand I will apply for it.
I can even teach in the schools and colleges. Nowadays, every sector like education, health and medicine, industries etc. have IT Department and they looked for IT professional. So, there is high need of IT specialist in Nepal and even I can work as a part time officer in different institution.
After getting some work experience, I will seek more opportunities in big and well reputed industrial groups like CG group, Golchha Organizations, Uniliver Nepal Limited, etc. as well as National as well as multinational Banks like Standard Chartered Bank, Nabil Bank, etc. as senior IT technician.
After working with them for 5 years, I expect to earn Nrs 80, 000-1,20,000 per month as salary. I have chance to work with telecommunication organizations such as Nepal Telecom, NCELL etc. who pay a good salary.
Besides this, there are many donor agencies like UN, Action Aid Nepal, UNICEF, UNDP etc. which are running different projects and programs here in our country and they also demand for IT specialist. I have known that these organizations pay a good payment to their staffs and I have options to work here as well. By working in these, I can make a handsome salary from 85,000 to 120,000 which is really good money. Hence, after working here for few years (5-7 years), I can recover all the abroad study investments.
