hope your Q has been addressed...if not plz ask again...i'll try again to answer again...stay blessed
I'm crazy for FSP because I don't need power but sophisticated environment,self grooming and interaction with the best people of the world/learned ones.
I heard that "not all" get foreign postings and "they" have to do just office work here in Pakistan.Is it right ? I mean is "everyone" given opportunity to work in other countries or only selective ones get it ?

In the start everyone gets a poating after almoat 2 yeqrs working at a desk...as you progress in career it becomes a bit difficult to get a good posting like in other services bt one can get the posting anyways...yes Pak men to desk job hi hotti he bt when poatee abroad it is a great service...especially for people who are not hungry for raw n mad power,interaction is wid great n sophisticated people...one travels around new places etc...bt ofcourse like other services FSP also has some draw backs...

In your previous post you said "No power.FSP is not about power."

Now you said;

it is a great service...especially for people who are hungry for raw n mad power

Can you please explain this contradiction in your statement ?

And what are drawbacks which you pointed ?

Quite discouraging ! For a female it's just a dream

Can you please explain one more thing,when one clears written and he/she mentions FSP as his/her first preference,is he judged according to his top preference OR he is simply allocated according to his merit no ?
I mean if a person is perfectly suitable for FSP and he proves it infront of panel then do they consider it or they just make his marks a criteria for allocation ?

There is nothing like that...Simple merit and other rules are followed for allocation...nothing like dis that if a person has great potential for any particular group then he is NOT given marks in interview considering that...he is simply judged on criterias set already by the panel

dear, i have FSP as my first preference because of all the benefits I have always heard about this dept, like it is considered comparatively "cleaner" departmnt of civil service with low corruption rate, nd in a service period of 20 years, 16-17 years are in other countries, nd some on service officers hv told me that it is good for women especially because they re not generally sent to hard stations like Afghanistan, Somalia etc..

infact, it is considered not a service, but a lifestyle..which seems to be sophisticated, learned, cultured and aristocratic..

but your description is just making everything bleak. i mean, i still want you to clarify certain points, like are you a part of FSP?? or it is your observation?
and if you are in FSP, then, where are you posted now?

Please do reply, as you've just shattered the dreams of some utopians

i mean if condition is really like this, i should better change my order of preference. what say?
