Going beyond just complaining
Everyone is always complaining about the quality of human resource – and the ICT sector is no different. Companies are expanding. They need good people. Most people they hire are products of an education system that has failed to produce thinking, passionate and ethical individuals.
P@SHA has for the past 3 years been holding Job Fairs where apart from matchmaking companies with individuals, we have tried to run workshops on subjects we feel are not being covered by the education system – for whatever reason.
This year P@SHA is holding a Career Expo where career tracks in different streams will be highlighted and young people will be able to question CEOs and HR Directors regarding growth prospects and exciting opportunities in different streams of the Information & Communication Technology sector. There are cutting edge areas that need people with different skillsets and very often youngsters are not aware of this.
In addition, there will be Panel Discussions on subjects like why there is such a disconnect between what universities are turning out and what is needed to build a stronger industry.
It promises to be an interesting and lively event where ideas will be shared and a lot of interaction will take place. There is something for company professionals as well – Paul Keijzer will be conducting a workshop on Building High Performance Companies.
Counsellors will of course be available all day to offer advice and answer questions.
The Career Expo will be held in Karachi on June 16, in Islamabad on June 23 and in Lahore on June 30. More info at http://www.pasha.org.pk/careerexpo.
Spread the word around and do participate. It is going to be an amazing event. Each one of us can make good things happen by giving a little bit of our time.
