Are you a textile engineer? Are you looking for textile jobs in government sector? Then this article is for you. There are few sectors in Bangladesh that needs a lot of freshers and textile is of them. Because this sector needs a lot of skilled person. But number of skill persons in Bangladesh are very less. As a result, career opportunity for textile engineer in government sectors as well as in private sectors is very high for a skill fresher. Many people think that getting government job is impossible because there is huge competition. But what it really takes is a lot of hard work and patience. Student from private university fells that government job is not for them as they are student of “privet university”. Let me tell you this is a wrong idea. Student from public and private have equal opportunities in government sector.

The starting salary of a textile engineer in Bangladesh per month is around 20-25 thousand. But after 6 or 7 years the amount raise to at least 70-80 thousand per month. In textile industry technical knowledge is as important as academic education. That’s why experience is very much appreciated in this sector. The amount of salary mainly depends of how much hard work you do and the level of technical knowledge you gain. A textile engineer also gets facilities provided by company. In government sector textile jobs salary is given by government salary scale.
Bangladesh is one of the biggest players in Ready-made Garment sector (RMG). This sector is the most important part of Bangladesh economy. That is the reason many students in Bangladesh want to study in textile related subject. Because no matter if you are a public or private university student you can get job. If you want to get a job in government sector you have lot of scope as I mentioned. If you want to get a job in private sector at an attractive salary and different facilities, you have that option too. On the other hand, private company hire manpower from abroad at high cost because shortage of skilled manpower. In a word if a fresher has good result and have the skill, he or she can manage a job easily.
