Job Resources for the Unemployed in Metropolis!
15 December 2013, my attention was caught by a headline that stated, “Government department employers vow to pool resources to create jobs”. Being a free lancer and a journalist I was taken by this heading, as most of my work is related to education and career, and that very moment I had a very clear idea that the next thing I will be doing would be to write a post related to this topic.
So here I am. It is pretty clear that the country is experiencing starvation when it comes to jobs, career and education. These are the three big pillars that bear the burden of any economy and can make an economy either strong or weak. It won’t be wrong to say that it has been Pakistan’s bad luck to suffer from poor education systems. Education is a strong factor for any country and thus economies that work on making this sector strong also get the desired results.
The main aim of this program being launched by the government is to create more employment opportunities and create a job pool for the Pakistani youth. The main idea on which this concept will work will be to give away loans for establishing own business, thus in a way promoting entrepreneurship. In this scheme a list of candidates fulfilling the economic criteria will be made and then loans will be given away to deserving candidates.
This is a very good scheme and if implemented will surely open up new avenues for the youth of Pakistan and give opportunity to the young Pakistanis to boost the country’s economy and help in making it strong and stable. Everything is set and the scheme is good to go. Do you think so? Well, let’s have a closer look at the scheme again and then analyze that whether this is a good idea or not.
Talking of giving away loans to the deserving candidates mean that you need to be very sure that money is landing in the rights hands and that this money will be used for the desired purpose. But is that the case in Pakistan? Are we 100% sure that these loans will be given away to the needy and rightful only and not to the people who have some connections with the authorities in charge of this scheme? The answer is not hard to predict, seeing the history of Pakistan and the schemes that have been launched in past such as one for user interface design jobs with the purpose to eradicating such menace, it only takes a minute to put oneself in dilemma that whether this scheme should be launch or not?
It is good to see that the government is taking intuitive such as recently only there was a meeting in the officials of the youth affairs department agreed to report the activity for youth promotion and development to the bureau and not only this but even the head on ministry of industries have vowed to create more jobs for the Pakistani youth and to increase the employment pool.
