Job Fair At Marriot

01-04-07_1511.jpg A grand job fair was held at Marriot this Sunday, that drew a wide number of people from all over the country Estimates point towards an approximate figure of around 25000.

With the massive global demand for IT man power and the move of multinationals to Pakistan as an “offshore destination”, the prospects for IT professionals have never been better. Pakistan’s strong growth rate, infrastructure development and formal IT policy has increased domestic demand as well. Fortunately for the employers, Pakistan’s large computer literate, English speaking population is a steady source of engineers

Such job fairs should be held more regularly as they bring the prospective employers and the candidates under one roof . They open up new possibilities and opportunities for both the parties, and go a long way in ensuring the right people are at the right place, at the right time, doing the right job.

    25000? Thats the same as the number of Islamic extremist in Isloo including the crazy brainwashed ninja girls.

    Not many were happy with the facility per say. The organizers gave more priority to security than any thing else and Marriot seemed to be the most secure place in Islamabad to hold this fair it seems. However, many students complained of long wating periods to enter the hall because it was small and could not accomodate too many people in one go.

    It was pathetic.

    There were not many companies around, and most of them were not even serious.

    Well i went there and witnessed it myself, a lot of people, full parkings, long lines phew… It was total BULLSHIT (except beautiful n sexy girls, i still remember one, with a huge Bosom and sexy Pajama). A quality organization when goes for such an event, should expect that a huge number of job seekers will visit. it seemed only a publicity campaign for One day is not enough for 25000 people (I wonder how many visited in Lahore and how many will visit in Karachi).
