LUMS career fair receives incredible response
Lahore: The Annual Mega Career Fair 2012 held at the Lahore University
of Management Sciences (LUMS) on Saturday received incredible response
from the university graduates and final year students, who turned up in
large numbers to explore the employment opportunities available at
reputed international and national organisations and to gather
information about the available foreign scholarships. The career fair
was organised by LUMS Career Service Centre.
As many as 41 noted
organisations, including Allied Bank, KASB Bank, Warid Telecom, Indus
Motors Pakistan, Nestle, Descon Chemicals, PSO, Teach Pakistan and
several others set up their stalls at the fair. Each company's
representative was present at its stall to guide students about
available positions in their organisations.
The event served as a
bridge between industry leaders and job seekers, giving the students and
employers a chance to interact with each other in a friendly
environment, outside the office. The companies' executives also
conducted written tests and on-campus interviews to shortlist
The stalls set up by different banks and telecom
companies remained the centre of attention at the fair, where students
were briefed about the procedures, requirements and eligibility
Talking to the media, students said that every university
should take it as its responsibility to help and guide its students with
regards to their professional careers. However, they added that it was
unfortunate that very few colleges and universities across the country
held career fairs for outgoing students.
A management studies
student, Alisha, said that the government should hold career fairs at
the national level where foreign companies could be invited to employ
talented youth of the country. She added that the companies should also
offer part-time jobs for students.
Talking about the career fair,
LUMS Career Service Officer Ali Mumtaz said the fair was organised
annually to build a strong foundation for professional career of
students so that they could excel in the job market.
He added, "LUMS
has expanded over the last few years; be it the number of students,
faculty or the diversification offered in each academic programme and
this growth and refinement in quality of education has been able to
attract more and more employers, including international employers, to
recruit students from LUMS." Daily times

BISEs' top slots an 'unwholesome treat'
Lahore: Finding managers for top slots in all the eight education
boards in Punjab has become difficult for the provincial government
because so far neither the administrative cadre officers nor senior
professors are willing to take up the 'prized' posts, apprehending they
may be in a soup if anything goes wrong in boards affairs.
2011 intermediate annual examinations' result fiasco had rolled some
heads from the hierarchy of almost all boards in the province. According
to recent reports, the Anti-Corruption Establishment has started
registering FIRs against the top managers – chairmen, secretaries and
controller of examinations – in all the boards concerned, including the
Lahore board. The ACE has also arrested three of the Lahore board's IT
officials, including a programmer and a system analyst.
of meeting a similar fate in case of any eventuality has apparently
become a deterrent for prospective candidates for the slots and the
higher education department is now giving additional charge of board
chairmen to directors (colleges) in respective divisions – as is the
case with Rawalpindi board.
The Lahore board, being the biggest in
terms of candidates as well as staff strength, has, however, been
successfully managed by a senior DMG officer Dr Allah Bakhsh Malik. He
was able to revise the board's intermediate results much before the
scheduled time, claiming it was mistake-free.
After the successful
experiment of appointing a senior DMG officer as Lahore board head, the
Punjab government is actively considering to amend board's Act and
include a provision allowing appointment of administrative cadre
officials as education boards' chairmen, secretaries and examination
However, some MPAs concerned as well as officials
agree that there was no need of amending the Act because it has been
written in civil servants' appointment letters that they could
be posted anywhere within Pakistan and abroad and in case of PCS and PMS cadre officials, in Punjab.
is why Dr Allah Bakhsh Malik was given the charge of Lahore board,
which he could not refuse, despite the fact that he is working under a
much junior colleague – the higher education secretary," said a Punjab
Assembly member concerned.
It is learnt that the many BPS-18, 19
and 20 administrative cadre officials who were being considered for
board assignments have either applied for a leave or managed to get
their names deleted from the lists under consideration. Similarly,
senior academics have also shown a lack of interest in these posts.
also resent that the government got booked, and in some cases even
arrested, the boards' top officials while letting those off the hook who
introduced the model and appointed an IT consultant with dubious
credentials who was more interested in selling computerisation
accessories of his company than doing good to the boards' IT system. The
board officials claim the whole model of computerisation
system was faulty, and also acknowledged by the Judicial Commission
probing the issue.
Senior officials in the Punjab government,
however, also believe that only an impeccable leadership could resolve
boards' management issues. Dawn

Private schools commission welcomed
Lahore: The recent initiative of the Punjab government to seek input of students, their
parents and teachers for the establishment of the proposed education
commission is being termed a step in the right direction. The commission
will have a mandate to regulate unbridled working of private
The initiative also shows seriousness
of the Punjab government to address the longstanding demand of the
stakeholders who over the years have been demanding an independent body
for regulating the affairs of private schools, especially to tap their
According to the Punjab government's
advertisements, the government plans to set up the Education Commission
to protect the rights of students, their parents and teachers of private
The commission will also take action against private
schools on complaints. The government also plans to empower the
commission to direct the private sector institutions to fix a quota for
the poor but talented students under the Corporate Social Responsibility
Over the years, the ever-increasing fees together
with heavy registration and admission charges, compulsory purchase of
stationery items and uniforms from prescribed shops in the private
sector have been some of the major concerns of students and their
parents. On the other hand, the unchecked working of private schools led
to their mushroom growth in absence of any accountability which also
affect quality education.
Similarly, exploitation of teachers by
private schools in absence of proper service structure and their low
salaries vis-à-vis workload assigned to them is also an open secret.
recent move is certainly belated as the PML-N government, coming into
power in Punjab in 2008, had announced setting up the regulatory body
for private schools. But since "better late than never", the
stakeholders are still excited and all praise for the government and
hope to see the body functional before the general elections.
to Punjab School Education Department Secretary Muhammad Aslam Kamboh,
the government would introduce necessary legislation after the
completion of the process of consultation. He said a Cabinet Committee
had been formed in this regard, adding that the government would receive
suggestions from the stakeholders till February 10, 2012.
department's Deputy Director (Monitoring) Rana Abdul Qayyum, the focal
person dealing with public feedback, said the move had received good
response from the stakeholders. He said that so far, he had received
around 800 emails from the stakeholders besides hundreds of phone calls
It is pertinent to mention here that the stakeholders can send their suggestions to the government at firstname.lastname@example.org . The news
