  • Thanks Osama. We at P@SHA appreciate your support. After 3 years of successful P@SHA Job Fairs, we have upgraded the event and made it the P@SHA Career Expo. In addition to matchmaking company posts with the right candidates, our intent is to give young people an entire career experience in the area of ICT. We want them to understand that the ICT industry is a diverse animal consisting of companies of different kinds – software product companies, software service companies, IT consulting companies, BPO firms, Call Centres,System Integrators,Networking companies, Security firms, Transcription companies, Animation companies, New Media firms, etc etc. This year we are running Career Tracks on most of these segments to tell young people what career progression there is in each sector – in the technology, business and management domains.

    We are as usual running sessions on Communication Skills and Interviewing Techniques and are putting together Expert Panels. These panels will have an interactive discussion amongst themselves and with the young people on subjects like the disconnect between the quality of HR being produced by universities as compared with what the industry require.

    Counsellors from major companies in the sector will be available throughout the day to provide advise to the fresh graduates and young professionals.

    We are very excited about the growth of this event. The first one is being held in Karachi this Saturday at the Expo Centre. Companies have supported us fully by booking booths and volunteering their services. Workjunction.com has very actively supported the event.

    The next one will be in Islamabad on June 23. Brightspyre and Green & White are working actively with us and exhibitors have started booking their booths.

    The Lahore one will be at the PC on June 30. Bookings have already begun and here too we will be actively supported by Green & White as well as the University of Central Punjab – Zaeem Yaqoob Khan has been a very active P@SHA supporter whenever we have held an event in Lahore. His team of Ambassadaors are very professional and passionate.

    In Karachi kids from CBM, MAJU and KU are gearing up for the event on Saturday. Promises to be a great one. The road banners are up, the ads are running in the press and word is spreading like wild-fire on blogs and websites.

    Thanks to everyone. This is something that we all need – to put in our efforts towards capacity building. Together we can do anything!!! As you can see, I am all hyped up.

  • Zaeem Yaqoob. he is one of the most passionate persons i have come across (Me too from UCP ) who works selflessly for benefit of newer generation. Seriously there is a big shortage of such individuals in out industry I wish there were more.

  • I couldn’t agree with you more. I wish others will take the lead from him and work selflessly for the industry as well as the country. Maybe we can clone Zaeem 😉

    The Karachi PASHA job fair was very poor. Very few companies and people came to the event, it was very disappointing. PASHA should do better job marketing and organizing, its bad for reputation of the leading IT organization to do bad job. I hope Islamabad and Lahore will be better.

    But Islamabad event was post-poned “until further notice” last day. This is very unprofessional without notice. I don’t think green and white should back this effort if it is going to be done in such lazy manner. Proper attendance and professional attitude is must. Organization needs to be good.

    I am going to be biased because I am an organizer of the event and a PASHA CEC member. Here are the honest facts:

    a) There were 20 plus companies across Hall 4 of the Expo center in Karachi.

    b) There were 2000 plus attendees. Turnout was light compared to Rozee and the event last year but Etlize, Systems, IBM, MIXIT, PIX Sense, TRG, Avanza, TPS, Erwin, Virtual Women Network and Access group’s stalls had steady traffic through out the day.

    c) The workshop that we ran on interviewing techniques had great turnout and the counselling and interview rooms were occupied nonstop post 1 pm.

    We did the PASHA Job fair last year as a firm as well as this year and are fairly happy with our results. We plan to be back next year again.

    I personally believe that this is the only focused event of its kind that showcases the technology industry in Pakistan for the benefit of technology employees.

    I told you, I am biased.

  • Jawwad, Jehan: I keep noticing in companies / leaders over and over and over from the critical analysis we do at G&W, and I’m afraid I’ll have to point this out here again.

    IF your CUSTOMER / CONSUMER is criticizing you regarding your PRODUCT, then why does it make sense to simply become biased, defend and deny?

    It is as if you’re seeing violence and bloodshed on the streets of Karachi, and you say “Well, I love Karachi, Karachi is great, and I’m biased, so I will just shut off this TV”. That wont stop the actual effects from happening.

    Remember, you should worry about the people who are NOT telling you how badly they felt about the event. However, the voice who IS telling you is telling you exactly what they would need to see from you (given their expectation of your product) in order to love you and spread the good word virally.

    In this case, I feel that Ahmed may have expected something that he didn’t see, and does have an objective perspective of the event (i.e. isn’t just holding a light opinion) — this platform is the best way to do a cheap focus group to find out what these expectations were.

    Rise of facebook marketing in Pakistan

     

    Until a few years back we used to have closed groups and forums, which gathered the like minded people and anyone targeting the online audience would tap into that forum and market his/her services. So PakGamers , PakPassion initially even PakWheels used to be driven by members talking about what they loved, people used to create marketing and sales opportunities from within those discussions (so you could get a good router cheap or a gaming PC etc).
    The advent of facebook changed all that, most of the forum goers moved to the new social media. It also made a very attractive market place for some one who does not …

    I  have been out of blogging for a long long long time, a lot of things happening on personal front (including a little startup I have ben doing my self). However during my absence I met a lot of people who had followed GreenWhite at its peak, read the articles regularly.

    CCP Gives Guidelines Against Telecom Companies’ Deceptive Marketing

    If only were there two things when it comes to the law, firstly the fear of breaking it and by passing the legal authority, and secondly, implementation of the law given full dedication, there would have been less competency and dishonesty in business and society. However, keeping good faith, the Competition Commission of Pakistan (CCP) has put forward “Deceptive Marketing Guidelines” which will maintain the Section 10 of the Competition Act, 2010. In order to enforce this part of the law and stop anti-competitive conduct on part of the telecom companies in advertising, the guidelines have been shared with Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) and other concerned telecommunication sector members, in …
