How Can I Be A Professional Employee When I Have No Prior Experience?

July 28th, 2010 by ROZEE Team

Question from the job seeker

I am a fresh graduate working in an NGO. I have finished my degree in BBA (HONS) before joining the NGO. The problem with me is that I am totally new in the practical field and am facing difficulties in fulfilling my duties. Moreover, my boss is not at all happy with my work as he claims that I am not a professional employee and cannot handle the work satisfactorily. I agree that I do not know anything about my work but the fact is that I am new in this field so obviously I do not have any relevant experience or the required knowhow. However, in order to prove myself worthy and to please my boss I do my work with maximum possible effort, but still get no response or recognition from him. Please suggest what should be done to improve the situation and make sure that my boss does not fire me. I have no experience in the professional field which is why I am totally unable to solve the problem on my own. Help me get myself out of this quagmire and get on the road to success.

Working Women: Braving The Challenges

July 21st, 2010 by ROZEE Team

Gone are the days when men were considered the bread winners and women were confined to the homes performing domestic chores. Nowadays women are earning their livelihoods by working in all fields and doing all jobs. They are working as HR managers, CEOs, Directors, Business Executives, Producers, Musicians and what not.

In countries like Pakistan where once there were only a handful of working women, there has been a phenomenal change in the attitudes of people regarding professional and career oriented women. They are now respected and valued contrary to the treatment meted out towards them in the past.

Trials & Tests:

Despite the acceptance of working women in the professional life, they still have to face many challenges when they opt for a career. Gender based discrimination, workplace harassment, lower pay scales and lesser growth opportunities are some of the issues that the professional women have to face when they start their careers.

I Am Not Being Paid Well And Getting No Interview Calls. Is There A Solution?

July 21st, 2010 by ROZEE Team

Question From The Job Seeker

I have a problem that has been causing growing frustration in my life and I need your help dealing with it. I have a Masters degree in Journalism & Mass Communication from Gomal University, Dera Ismail Khan, with first division. After finishing my degree, I joined an advertising agency and worked there for nearly 4 and half years. I then switched to another agency and worked for some time with that agency before finally moving to an airline company.

The problem I am facing is that the salary package I am getting at this airline company is quite low as compared to my experience level and the jobs portfolio. People with my experience level are getting much higher pays than me. My boss says that since I came to the company on this pay scale, I should be content.

Disheartened, when I applied for another job, I did not receive an interview call, but when my wife who has a BA degree only applied for the same job she received an interview call. Why was I ignored despite being more experienced and educated? Also what can I do to get the company to increase my salary?
