Educational and Career counseling in Pakistan

Education and career plays a pivotal role in course of one’s professional as well as social life. If students’ education commensurate with his aspirations and abilities, he/she face lesser degree of frustrations and anxieties and exhibit greater degree of performance and achievement.
In most of the developing countries like Pakistan the literacy rate is low and the available educational and career options are limited. The most obvious focus of education is the well paying job so parent forces their children to choose the field they decide for them.

 

Educational and career counseling is a widely used concept in many of the developed countries, they have counseling facilities to guide students and professionals but unfortunately it is not very well recognized concept in Pakistan, one of the reason is many prevailing factors in Pakistan like political unrest inflation and law and order situation doesn’t allow people to focus of these kinds of issues and also lack of awareness, but still there are few universities who offers counseling to their students, but it should be available as facility for all.

Educational counseling is a new concept in Pakistan that is essential for better allocation of the human resources, thorough education counseling, the student is guided to the institution that suits him best according to his qualification. Pakistani public is becoming increasingly aware of the importance of higher education for their career and future well being. But due to a limited number of universities in the country and fewer seats available in them, and lot many young people fail to achieve their goals with the result that lot of precious talent is wasted every year.

Business Process Outsource

The continued growth of the Business Process Outsource market and some of the areas where BPOs and solution providers may look to innovate.

There are two further significant issues that I believe will become increasingly important.

Shortening the time to ROI is a key focus of BPO customers, but a related issue that still needs to be resolved is: what will be the ‘best practice’ for achieving not just short term ROI, but also the best long-term approach?

There are many approaches out there, and the debate between BPA (Business Process Automation) versus BPM (Business Process Management) and Business Process Outsource is central to this. How should these approaches best be intertwined? Are customers prepared to outsource whole processes or is “by-pass” process outsourcing solution the way forward? How do you define the differences between them or do you use other terms, too? I think these will be big questions in the BPO market in the next few years. Ideally they will be solved through closer relationships between BPO providers and their customers.

On the BPA v BPM v BPO discussion, we have added a post here defining these terms as we see them.

Finally, I strongly believe that the need for distributed processing is increasing, and will become an important factor for BPOs. This of course means reducing the cost of logistics; for example, moving paper by courier needs to be removed and of course the time it takes to move it. This also means for me including the end customer in the process for tasks such as exception handling, in an audited way without system-breaks. Distributed processing can have some significant benefits in terms of ROI and time-to-market discussions.

This will potentially have a huge impact on BPO providers, as they will need to consider all of the keys to successfully and efficiently processing in a distributed environment. Data protection issues when operating in the cloud, minimizing logistics costs, maximizing linguistic skills, unique local regulations, and the need to include end customers are just some factors that come to mind.

So, while we can expect growth and expansion in the BPO market in coming years, constant change and improvement is a theme I expect to continue and eventually drive further growth.

What other things do you expect will happen in the Business Process Outsource market in the next few years? Do you agree with my thoughts? I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas … so please feel free to comment below.

Top 6 things not to do in your job search

Since there are plenty of obstacles standing in your way to a new job, it’s imperative to hone your approach. See if you’re making any of these job-hunting mistakes and fix them before it’s too late:

1. Not proofreading your résumé
The quality of your résumé is what forms most potential employers’ first impression of you and opens the door to job interviews. So it’s important to make sure it’s perfect. Whether you create one on your own or have it professionally prepared is up to you — just be sure it is 100 percent error-free.

In addition to making the paper version of your résumé perfect, make sure the one you send via email delivers without any messed up formatting or funny breaks. To create a version of your résumé that can be embedded in the body of an email, remove all current formatting by opening your résumé and saving it as a plain text (.txt) file — and remember to click on the box that says “insert line breaks.” Then, reopen it with the Notepad program. Be sure that all of the text is flush with the left-hand side of the document, and ensure that you have used only clear, easy-to-read fonts. Save that version and you’re done. Email it to yourself to review what it actually looks like when it arrives.

2. Becoming discouraged
Searching for a job can be difficult and lonely. You may interview with dozens of companies, never to hear from them again, and you may experience many unreturned phone calls as well. In the midst of all this adversity, it’s important to maintain a positive attitude and an upbeat outlook. Becoming discouraged only works against you.

If you’re currently unemployed, you probably have some free time on your hands. Spend a portion of it to keep your attitude and outlook healthy. Stay in shape, stay connected to friends (and join networking groups), or learn new skills to add to your résumé. These types of activities can keep you motivated and reduce the amount of time you have to become discouraged.

3. Telling the whole world you’re looking for work
This is especially true if you’re currently employed. If your boss finds out that you’re thinking about leaving, he could potentially speed up the process by giving you the boot. The last thing you want is to lose your current position before you’ve found a new one. Keep your job search to yourself.

4. Using a singular strategy
If you want to find a job quickly, search for leads in every way possible. For instance, 36 million people used social media to find a job in 2011. If you’ve been ignoring that avenue, start checking sites such as Facebook and LinkedIn regularly for job announcements. Checking job boards is also a good idea, but if you’re intent on working for a particular company, consider showing up in person. You may not land a job interview, but you’ll at least get your face in front of someone, which could lead to an opportunity down the road.

 

Employment Outsource

There is a great chance that you own a computer or any other piece of electronic equipment. There is also a great chance that you ran into some problems with these devices and called the manufacturer for technical support. There is a good chance that the technical support you called is located thousands of miles away from the company in another and within a country.

This is called outsourcing. Companies today are now considering outsourcing their jobs in other countries, such as the Philippines, Mexico, India, Pakistan and China because of cheap labor. The reason why outsourcing is very popular among companies today is because of cheap labor, quality services and it allows the company to focus more on important factors involved in letting the company grow.

Help desks, and technical support services aren’t the only outsourced jobs today. Now, companies are also outsourcing their payrolls, their business process, data entries, human resources, records/files, salary & benefits management, promotions and increments, regulatory & statutory requirements and all disciplinary & performance management matters and a lot more. Because of the growing competitiveness of other countries in the information technology, outsourcing companies are now widely available.

Here are some of the advantages of outsourcing services and the reason why companies are considering outsourcing their jobs:

•Lower personnel costs
•Allow the company to focus on more important factors
•Free up space in the company building for other important uses
•Increase productivity
•Effectively manage the jobs of a company
•Reduce cash flow
•Free up management time
•Increased company efficiency

However, if your target is cheap labor, you can definitely consider outsourcing. But you have to make sure that the quality of the services of an outsourcing company should be at par with your standards. For example, if you need a call center to be outsourced, you have to make sure that the employees of the call center company should be competent and qualified to get the job done. You should also consider the fact that they should be able to speak fluent English with an accent that is easy to understand.

Outsourcing has a lot of benefits that your company can take advantage of. However, before you outsource, you should first weigh the advantages and disadvantages and know whether outsourcing is for you.

If you want to provide jobs for your countrymen, then you shouldn’t consider outsourcing or you should consider outsourcing your company’s jobs to local outsourcing companies.

These are some of the things you should consider when you plan on outsourcing. You have to keep in mind that there are a lot of advantages as well as disadvantages in outsourcing. You have to be able to weigh it in order to arrive at a good decision in whether you want to outsource or not.
