Nepali People by Job Applications

Reading Time: 1 minute

COMMITTED is expanding!

Following the recent approval for a project on local governance, we advertised for a total of 14 new positions, both full- and part-time. We received over 400 applications.

Here are charts showing the particulars of the applications and some charts about the population for comparison purposes.

Incidentally, “applications” instead of “applicants” because a number of applicants submitted applications for two or more positions.

Applications by position.

Applications by gender.

What’s more, almost 2/3rds of all female applications were for the junior-most position of Receptionist/Admin Assistant. 80% of all women applications accounted for the two junior-level positions of Receptionist/Admin Assistant and Communications Officer.

Applications by qualifications. All seven applicants with PhDs are males.

Of those with a masters (53.3%), a vast majority of them (73%) are men! Only 14% of all female applications had a Master’s degree.

Here’s a breakdown of the population of the country by advanced degrees and gender.

Different from the North-American use of the terms, graduate refers to someone with a Bachelor’s degree, while post-graduate to someone with a Masters or a PhD or equivalent. The breakdown is of people aged 5 and over.

Applications by age.

Applications by caste.

Of the seven with PhDs, four are Bahun (Brahmin), one Newar and two Other.

Here’s a breakdown, by caste, of the (209) applications with a Master’s degree.
