Quote

Minister for Investment, Abdul Hafeez Shaikh:careerpakistan.org is doing a national and noble service for facilitating the return of qualified overseas nationals to Pakistan, which would certainly help Pakistan bring quality management and world standard skills in all fields.”

Mission

Career Pakistan matches well-qualified woman professionals with jobs in Pakistan.

Organizations today are increasingly striving to induct more women in their workplaces. Commonly, their objectives include improving female/male ratios to support woman empowerment and participation. Yet, many times, even organizations that follow a policy of advertising with a “females are encouraged to apply” caption, end-up hiring males. Usually, this is not by any ill design. Organizations are expected to focus on their core competencies. They cannot embark on searches for well-qualified woman applicants. To assist such organizations, Career Pakistan matches well-qualified woman professionals with career opportunities.

Matchmaking

For many jobs, Career Pakistan interacts directly with decision-makers of reputed private sector companies, multinational companies, international organizations, NGO's, and educational institutions. Decision-makers are first queried on their hiring needs. Once Career Pakistan determines a match between the organization's needs and the individual's qualifications, Career Pakistan arranges an interview. For specialized jobs, Career Pakistan will, at times, accost the services of one of its industry-specific volunteer advisors to corroborate whether there is a true match.

While there are many organizations coveting professionals, and many individuals seeking jobs, faithful matches between demand and supply of qualifications are not as abundant. Therefore candidates should not expect immediate results. In many cases, Career Pakistan will be unable to assist the individual at all. Similarly, Career Pakistan cannot guarantee to each organization that it will facilitate filling up of their vacancies, or even present CV's for appraisal. On the other hand, Career Pakistan will make every practical effort to minimize time of decision-makers exhausted in evaluating incompatible candidates.

Outreach

Most CEO's and decision-makers do not work with Career Pakistan just to fill up their job openings in an efficient and effective manner. Many of them are themselves women. Thus they have an empathetic compassion for helping other women achieve suitable careers. Even male counterparts derive fulfillment from their personal participation in the shared goal of women empowerment. Several CEO's and decision-makers have taken an additional role of supporting Career Pakistan in an advisory capacity.
