Bangladesh holds the second position in exporting ready-made garments (RMG) just after China. There are about forty thousand Garments and Textile industries in Bangladesh. About 3.4 to 4 million people are working in this sector. Bangladesh exported $38.57 billion U.S. dollars in ready-made garments in the last year, 2022. She is now targeting to export about 100 billion U.S. dollars within 2030. So, the demand for Textile Engineers is growing day by day.
Though many Textile Engineers are needed to fulfill the growing demand, some companies are applying a new job agreement policy for the freshers. They are trying to bind the new engineers with their local job agreement policy. The job agreement is for 2-5 years. The agreement period varies from one company to another. Some apply for two years, some for three years, and some for five years.
The new employers have to sign up an agreement form. The agreement form mentions that new employers can’t leave the job before completing the agreement period. Also, they have to submit primary copies of their academic certificates. They can only leave it if they get a chance to go abroad for higher studies or get a government job.
The companies are showing some causes for the job agreement. When recruiting new employers, they must train them for three to six months. During this period, the companies must make some investments for the employers. But the companies get a little output during this training period. They want the highest output from the employers. They get a bitter experience when an employer leaves the job after 1 to 1.5 years. That is why they try to hold the newcomer by job agreement.
Though this agreement is fruitful for the companies, it is not better for the Upcoming Engineers. As usual in this sector, when you change your company, you will be upgraded and get more salary by showing your experience. So, the job agreement hinders your rapid salary increment and upgrade post.
As I’ve already mentioned, some companies are trying to recruit through this policy, but all companies are not. Till now, most of the reputed companies are recruiting legally. So, there is nothing to be disappointed with for the upcoming Textile Engineers.
Finding a good job is not as easy as before, but you will get a better one if you are confident and capable. It would help if you were patient enough to get your desired job. So get to prepare yourself properly and be a good Textile Engineer.
