PASHA Career Expo – Rescheduled Until “Further Notice”

Earlier we posted here about the PASHA Career Expo in Islamabad on 23rd June. Well folks the latest news here is that the event has been rescheduled until further notice and a new date will be announced later.

However, one point of concern here. This seems very strange, and to some extent quite unprofessional cancelling a mega event like this one day prior to the scheduled date.

First of all this should not have happened. And if due to some force majeur it could not be avoided (like burning down or flooding of expo center to say the least) internationally there is a rule to have a contingency planning program in place. Where you have one two three backups, or at least, you are given a new date and place, instead of cancellation “until further notice”. What more, the particpants are being informed just one day before the orignal event date.

I don’t mean to shoot down a great effort by these guys here, but a mega even in which PASHA was involved too, deserved a little more respect for professionalism, and proper event management.

    At least they told you before hand … they could’ve asked reception (if there’s any at Convention center) to bid you off.

    The PASHA Career Expo was terrible in Karachi — mega flop. Very few people turned up in a large city like Karachi. I suspect they didn’t get the turnout desired in Islamabad. They could learn a thing or two from folks — over 100,000 people turned up to their job fairs in three cities (and they didn’t have to reschedule!).

    We are used to these flops now. Nothing new. But the bitter truth is that nobody seems to learn from their mistakes.
