Employers Having Advantage of Unemployment in Pakistan?

It is very true reality that the youth which is majority in Pakistan facing long lasting problems. These problems are being created by unemployment, education system, lack of leadership, political system and instability in politics, bribery system and international pressure and agent politicians. In presence of all these factors there is the only business sector ”employers” in Pakistan who can solve this problem of youth. But unfortunately this sector highly discouraging the youth and educated people by paying low salaries, forced overtime on job, lack of reward and promotion system and over workload.

Employers paying very low salaries and expecting hard work and motivation from employees. They do not know that if the employee will be satisfied and happy only then that will be motivated and will do the best for the employer. I will say that the employer only thinks in their own way but they must start thinking in a professional way.

Even now a day this is also becoming well known that the employers block the salaries of one or two months as security and ultimately if the employee leaves the job then this security will not be paid. Employee with low income can’t do anything with this type of problem unless to keep silence.

I know all above problems will remain same but I will request the employers please reward the employees as per their abilities and education and get rewarded by the employees more than your expectations and status.

Please give your suggestions in below comment box

How to Work With Your Boss? Do You Know?

The fact is Boss always wants those people who are not much more intelligent. Their performance should not be better than the boss. Boss always pick your weak points and prove you an unintelligent worker. Boss will hide your performance from the senior management especially where the boss is answerable and report-able. Boss will be angry if you show your performance directly to the senior management because they can promote you, can increase your incentive and may think to replace you with your boss’s position.

So if you are a job holder you must be careful about your efficiency. Because if you prove yourself better than your boss, than your boss can be fired any time.  But clever bosses never give you such chances and boss will fire you before you take such opportunity, everybody loves the job.

So what to do?

Just find the right person to whom you need to show your performance. Who can promote you in reality? Who can increase your salary? Who can be beneficial for you in difficult time? If you will be able to find the right person to whom you need to show your performance, only than you will be a successful employee of the company. Otherwise your will ever lose your jobs and face troubles.

Education System in Pakistan. Will We Succeed?

Today education has become necessary for everyone’s life; Survival without education is becoming difficult. A recent survey shows that in today’s environment labour level jobs also requiring education to work on machines, to drive machines and to quantify the work and calculate the earnings.

But in developing countries education is challenge for low earners, especially in Pakistan. Because in Pakistan income is on top priority then education in all institutions. So for low earners it is too much difficult to pay high fees. Free education the government schools and various NGO’s are offering but to study in most of those schools is about none.

Low salaries, teachers absents, low qualification and no teacher training’s are the main reasons of low quality education especially in Pakistan. The teachers don’t know what they are teaching, students don’t know what they are studying, and teachers are going to schools for salaries, students for attendance and to satisfy parents. Students learn nothing and wasting their time in Pakistani schools according to current demand and competition. Quality education is also available in Pakistan but that is limited to only few students in 13 Crore students.

In today’s fast moving world Pakistan is still lacking quality education even after having good infrastructure and the same practices are ongoing from nursery to university level. Universities and schools want to earn more and more rather to better education their students. All above reasons promoting academy culture in Pakistan, or part time home tuition culture in Pakistan. Because of tuition culture parents have to pay double fees first at schools, then academy’s. Education system in Pakistani universities is shame for the Muslims. We proudly say we are Muslims but reality is different. The first message from the God to our holy prophet was education.

The government must take the necessary steps to improve this system otherwise we will be failure in the world with no education. Every Pakistani wants to go abroad but they have in mind in advance that they will work as labor and can survive with low earnings. HSMP highly affected Pakistan because the thousands of educated Pakistanis already migrated and many trying to migrate.

If we will not standardize our education system we will be failure state in the world. But unfortunately for this system educated leadership is necessary. No one is thinking about this. But this is guaranteed that we will never grow with this system in the world. Everyone knows what is happening but no one working for its betterment. We should make our country good educational brand.

What happen in interviews? How to win an interview?

What happen in interviews? How to win an interview? What can be the best strategy?

Hope you will learn from this article. I am writing my experience that how I won my first interview and what was the strategy I followed. I attended more than 20 interviews but I was failure to get job.

Just completing my MBA I started applying for jobs. At first I do not receive any interview call for few weeks and then I receive an interview call from one of the largest IT Company of my country. My interview was successful and they offered me the job but at the end they ask my one thing about my further education plan and I answer them that I am interested in further education. My answer was the reason to lose this opportunity. Because they wanted a person fully committed to the job not in education. So they feel fear that I will leave their company whenever I get admission for further education. That is why they decided not to hire me. When I came back to my home I wondered that they do not called me for the job even in next two months. At first interview you can understand my mistake. This was the blunder and after losing this opportunity I did not get job for next one year.

What happened in next one year it is very interesting. I received many interview calls and most of them was simply a joke with my MBA Degree. In many interviews I feel that they are just kidding with many people others who come for the interview. Even I went for such interviews where only one person was sitting in the room and there was no space for other person to sit. Some people ask me in interview to make an investment in their company and some ask me to pay security against the job. Once I went for interview in a TV channel and the person who was conducting interviews didn’t look at me even single time. But it was all fake and joke to me. I was depressed, disappointed, and thinking that opportunities never knock again and again as I already loosed my first interview.  During this time I also attended many good interviews and did not get jobs because of salary packages and type of businesses and their requirements like convenience etc. Finally my pocket was empty after a year of struggle, my face was looking depressed, my clothes and shoes were old, and I was so much tired from interviews.

At this stage I was not able to send my resume against advertised jobs because of no money. I was not able to apply online because internet surfing was not free. it was very hard for me to eat one time food in those days. I feel that I will never get any job because of my current position. During the days when there was no money in my pocket I received an interview call. After receiving the call I thought that this job is not for me as usual. And then I check my pocket there was no fare in my pocket to go for interview. So I decided not to go for the interview. On the day of interview I received a call from that company and a female was speaking. She asked me where you are.  This is the time for your interview. I regret and ask her to give some time in the next day and tell her that I will assure my availability. She spoke the final words, that they called only one person and that was me. Even they did not want my interview. They just wanted to offer me the job and she told me the salary package and said “Now you do not need to come” cut the call. After this there were tears in my eyes and I couldn’t do anything, even I didn’t have balance in my cell to call her back for excuse. The point I want to tell you that never lose any single opportunity if you are needy.

Finally I won the interview. It was my style and confidence.

After one year of my unemployment I was thinking that why I am not getting hired. Is there no jobs in the market or I am not for those jobs. I find a paper in the playground where I normally waste most of my time just sitting on benches. That paper was about interview techniques. I noted one thing from that paper “must ask questions at the end of interview even if you already know the answer of those questions”. The same day I receive an interview call and I decide to go for that interview by having free lifts on the road because there was no money in my pocket. I decided that now I will not allow any body to joke me. I reached in the waiting room where many males and females were waiting for their interviews. All were silently sitting. I sit near to a female and start asking her about the job. She told that she has no idea about that job. I hide my details in reply to her questions because she was a fresh graduate from my university. In short finally I was called for the interview. After reaching in the room I observed that all the interviewers were lower qualified than me. They completed their questions and ask me that “I can ask if I have any question” the first question I asked “what are your qualifications” they were shocked and they ask me in return why I am asking this question. I replied that I want to know what kind of people working here and I am going to work with. And ask two other questions about their financial position and average time of employees spent in their company.

My questions were very important for them to make me unique and were showing my intelligence level. So they offered me job at the end of interview and ask me to join them from the day after tomorrow. And that was the first day of my job. Many other things I want to share but it is not possible in this short article. I will share them in my next articles. I recommend you to do follow interview techniques and must ask questions at the end of every interview. Even if you already knows the answer of your questions.

How to study and understand the Books?

As the technology has developed and we enter to 21st century study is simple and most easy to read and learn from the books. There are international standards of writing books available. Most of the books meeting the standards I find them very easy to understand and memorize them. Following are the points to read business books especially. Even teacher do not know this method.

Where to start? First of all you need to know who wrote this book and what is the topic is being discussed. Why you want to read this book, you can judge it from the topic. Try to find the first pages if there mentioned “how to read this book” because most of the modern books have this guide page. If this page is available carefully go through it.

What to learn first? Most of the books have contents page and all the contents managed in a hierarchy. Try to understand what the all hierarchy about. If possible try to draw this hierarchy on a page.  If you will be able to do this I guarantee you that you will understand half of the book and 50% of the topic.

How to start reading? When you have completed the first two steps and you have got the idea what is inside the book. You can start reading it first chapter. According to international standards most of the book author’s summaries the whole book in first chapter. Before starting any chapter keep its contents in mind with hierarchy and try to understand the first chapter in depth. If you learn the first chapter of the book that you are reading you will get the 80% knowledge of the book. If you completed and learn the first chapter carefully, the rest of the whole book will not be a problem for you. No matter whether the book is contains 500- pages or 500,000- pages.

What to do with terms or difficult words? All books have used many terms and lots of word that you may not understand easily. For this problem during your reading keep in mind to check all terms and difficult words at the end of the book in section “glossary”

What to do after completing the chapters? At the end of each chapter you will find an exercise, you must complete this if you really want to learn from the book. When you have gone through the whole book, it will be useless for you until unless you exercise it, teach it, or implement where it can be.  You can find larger case studies and solve them with your own understanding. In this way you will not only read the book in a short time, you will be able to memorize it for life time, get lessons from it. And you will achieve the purpose of the book.

What is happening in our class rooms? In most of the universities, colleges and schools teachers start from the first chapter, shortly go through it, provide an exercise for students to perform, finally in next class more than 80% of the students come without any solution by themselves, 10% copy it from other 10%, and the last 10%, most of them already having knowledge about the topic, some read it from the book and some understand it from teacher. In class teachers only teach few chapters and they don’t care whether the student learnt from the teacher or not. They just try to complete the session. This difference exists in all developing and underdeveloped countries and all Muslim countries. This is the reality of our class rooms according to my experience and that is why we are laggards in the world in education. There are many other reasons but I am not discussing them here.

Qualification Based Salary:  You can fix the salary based on Professional Qualification. Most of the companies also have grading system. They specify the grading based on qualification. For example for graduation they have 12th Grade and 14 for Master Qualifications. And they offer salary to new staff according to grades only and also offer increments as per grades. Like two increments for 12th Grade and three increments for 14 Grades and like wise.

You can also fix the salary as per experience of the employee. For senior employee you must have to pay more salary than the lower experience staff.

Well educated but not confident. What to do for Building Self Confidence?

Hundreds of articles, books and websites are available on improving self confidence level. But I feel many people who studied those articles, books and websites still not confident or fail to build self confidence. I will tell you few tips to improve your self confidence level and I never studied these points in any self confidence building articles. I drive these tips from my personal and professional experiences. Building Self Confidence requires many aspects to cover but here I am writing the most important. I am sure after reading this complete article “Self Confidence” will not be a matter for you. Specially you will not forget this article once you read it.

Improving Self Esteem and Self Confidence is Not a Matter Now

Example from the History

Just think about the old times what the doctors were doing. They just looked at the face and told about all the problems in the person standing front of them. They don’t have the facility of today’s latest technology, labs and equipment’s. It was all about face reading. From this I want to tell you that your face tell everything about you, no matter whether it is inside the body or outside. Your confidence always measured from your face.

Here are some special points to improve your confidence level. Its all about how you can make your face good looking, happy and confident. If you have any fault inside and outside of your body believe me it will appear on your face and others will read it easily. To make your face confident consider following confidence building tips.

Self Confidence Building Tips and Exercises

Exercise 1: Brush Your Teeth:

Before going to any place where you feel not confident you must brush your teeth. Even if you do not have need of this. You will feel happy to give a good smile otherwise you will feel shy. If you brush your teeth before any interview or any situations where you feel not confident your confidence level will increase up to 15% as compared to without brush.

Exercise 2: Wear Newly Washed and Ironed Cloths:

You must wear washed and newly ironed cloths, no matter whether the cloths are new or old but they must be washed and ironed properly before going to any situation. If you have some cloths washed before two weeks and ironed before one week. Do not wear them for this kind of situation. This type of clothing will depress you and you will not feel fresh. Also plan your clothing as per situations, whether you need to wear simple shirt and pant, tie shirt and pant or pant coat. Try to wear better cloths which you feel nobody will be wearing in the certain situation. Your confidence level will increase up to 15% as compared to without washed and freshly ironed clothes.

Exercise 3: Hair Style and Cutting:

Go to an outstanding hair saloon, where you feel the experts are available. Please guide the barber about your desire and get the perfect and good looking hair style. You can also get the advice from the expert about you hair style. Many hair styling gels and creams are also available you can use them easily.

Exercise 4: Shave Properly:

You must have fresh shave before shower and double your shave to make sure that it is perfect. If you will not be sure about your shave perfection, definitely you will lose confidence.  In case you do not have shaved face than you must have proper cutting.

Exercise 5: Clean Your Body:

This important point most of the writers will not tell you and I never read this in any article. Properly take a shower with soap and shampoo just before going to any situation. If possible use soap and shampoo two times or more than you regularly do. Try to make your body cleaner than ever before.

Exercise 6: Make Under Shave Properly:

Make sure your under shave is OK, and never compromise on this. If your under shave is not properly done you will lose your confidence up to 30%. You can experiment it suppose if your shave is not properly done, just do it, and feel the difference. This will change your face expressions and makes you confident.

Exercise 7: Use New Under Garments:

Most of the time people wearing old undergarments do not have a happy face. Make sure your undergarments are not older than their life if you want a happy face. Also make sure that all under garments you are wearing are neat and clean as your cloths. Try to use new garments in special situations. If you are wearing new undergarments your confidence level will improve up to 10%.

Exercise 8: What to Do With Your Shoes?

Always try to have special shoes that suites your personality for the special events and do not wear them any where else. Make sure they are properly polished and cleaned and having their perfect look. Believe me if your shoes will be older and not polished properly you will lose your confidence. No matter somebody is looking at your shoes or not but your face will tell the others about your shoes as well.

Exercise 9: Nails:

Do cut your nails properly on the day or before the day you are going to present yourself. If you have your nails already in proper form. Just make sure their perfection. Otherwise you will not be able to show the gestures and postures easily of your body. Ultimately you will lose your confidence.

Exercise 10: Use Perfumes:

If you have a good perfume only then use it otherwise avoid it and search for a good one. You should use body spray and perfumes separately. Make sure your body smell is attractive otherwise person around you will avoid you.

How Confident People Get Their Confidence?

This is the reality that all confident people are habitual from all above mentioned points. That is why they always looks confident. If you want to realize this just meet a confident person and check all above mentioned points on his/her body. Than you will accept me as a master of confidence improvement.

Tip 1: What to do with your language?

Prefer your national language and be smart. No matter what the language you speak but you should be proud of that language. Express your feelings in the language you feel easy, no matter what will be the audience says to you. Smartly try to use sentences and phrases from the desired language of the audience. If the audience can understand your language please do not confuse yourself if you can’t speak other language properly and this will be your strength. I know many people who do not speak English in their routine life but they try to speak English in certain situations like interviews. They lose the results and do not get jobs because they show their weakness and ultimately lose confidence answering certain questions in English.

Tip 2: What We Do in Routine Life?

Most of the time we do not consider all the above points and do not feel confident even after having many degrees in our hand and just blame others that they did not appreciate and didn’t selected you.

What to learn from this article?

If you have gone through this whole article you may feel that it is a full time job to perform all above points and you can’t do this. But if you start performing all that this will not take more than two hours. If two hours of your life can make you succeed, don’t waste them it is investment. After adopting all above points your face will look confident, satisfied and will show your passion to perform any task with 100% results and hide many of your faults. Exercise all above discussion and note the results you will find the difference. No matter whether you are going for an interview, speech or meeting you will not lose your confidence.

If you will be neat and clean everyone loves to get closer to you and love to hear you otherwise mostly people may avoid you. If you will be neat and clean your body and brain performance will be extraordinary. Also follow the above discussion on the marriage day. Just look the celebrities. Neat and clean body improves their performance and makes them more attractive and confident. So they are leading the world. All of them are not educated. But they are working on TV Channels.
