Can I Show Counterfeit Educational Background Since I Know I Can Get Away With It?

September 30th, 2009 by Rozee Team

Question From the Job Seeker:

I know for a fact that a lot of companies do not do a background check on your degrees and qualification and many people get away with lying about them. There are many jobs that match my skill set and I know I can do well at them but I don’t have the required qualification. I would like your advise on it, even though I know I can get away with it very easily.

Answer From ROZEE:

Human beings for the longest time have been getting away with evil and that is how failed societies form. Nature as a rule lets you get away with evil initially but there is only destruction in the long run. Read More »

Employer Branding – A Step Ahead!

July 29th, 2009 by Rozee Team

editors-choice-furqan1The challenge of an employer is not to train human resources in branding but to attempt a rare unification between marketing and human resources. Organization that can unite these two departments behind the power of brand will win the war of talent.
M Ritson, ‘Marketing and HR collaborate to Harness employer brand power.’ – Marketing UK(2002)

We have already entered into a new brand world – An improvisation to the statement I came across recently.

The handbag you are carrying has a hanging tag of DKNY; The wide screen with dashing black color says it all that you belong to the higher tier of the league of blackberrians; Red pack of tobacco you place on the coffee table imprinted with Dunhill or yellow flat tin of café crème are all about brands. We are surrounded by brands whether it is the leading chartered accountants affiliated with international brands, or restaurants, or even responding to emails in your inbox i.e., personal branding of whom to respond and whom to not. So, what is branding all about? It doesn’t give you the power to maximize profits over competition instead it means to achieve those benchmarks where the target audience perceives some solution provider to be for their problems.

Do Not Want A Bad Impression For My Resume By Opting For Data Entry Jobs; Suggest A Way Out!

July 29th, 2009 by Rozee Team

Question from the Job Seeker:

I belong to a poor family. My parents were not able to get me educated from some reputable institution in any of the major cities of the country. Therefore, I got my school and college level education from my own town’s institutes.

I have recently moved to Lahore to find a job, so that I can do MBA from Lahore. Since I don’t have a strong background and have my Bachelors degree from Charsada, my resume is being continuously rejected. The only jobs I am able to find are Data Entry related jobs, but I am afraid, a data entry experience may cause a negative impression while applying for career oriented jobs in the future. Please advise, what should I do to find a better job?


Answer From ROZEE:

Dear Abdul-Ahad,

You are right that it helps to have a degree from a well-known college; this is true world-wide, not just in Pakistan. However, what is also true globally is that there is no replacement of experience that an individual attains from working. My advice to you will be to become a part of the workforce as soon as possible. Read More »
