Employer Has Been Unfair By Only Changing My Job Title And Not Giving Me A Salary Raise: What Should I Do?

April 28th, 2009 by Rozee Team

Question from Job Seeker:

Dear ROZEE Team,

I have been working with a private firm for last 3 years. My employer never gave me a raise in my salary during my employment. Now, when the prices of all the basic necessities are increasing, it has become impossible for me to manage in what I am being paid. My title was changed to a senior level position a month ago, but no change was made in my salary. I am afraid of talking to the management in regards to increasing my pay level, as they might hire someone else at the salary they are paying me. Please advise how I can make my employer realize that I desperately need a raise. Thanks in advance!

Shahmeer Ch.

Answer From ROZEE.PK:

Let’s come straight to the point; you have two positive things working for you. One, your 3 year term with the company and two, your recent promotion to a senior level position. What this adds up to is that Read More »

ROZEE.PK Powers First-Ever Virtual Job Fair for leading Pakistani Universities

April 22nd, 2009 by Rozee Team

42-19345854Starting on May 11th to May 17th you will have one week to apply to all relevant jobs in Pakistan, to download company information and to chat with HR staffers representing their HR on a one-on-one basis for instant feedback and advise you may need.

Logon to http://www.rozee.pk/jobfair/

The Virtual Fair will connect thousands of students and alumni with leading jobs in Pakistan.

A valid degree is no longer the only tool you need to build your career or develop a sound plan for employment in an already saturated employment industry; what you need is a well-timed entry of your individual brand into the job market. How do you develop your brand?

Connect with your Placement Office

To start off, if you are lucky enough to be part of a University that has invested in a Campus Placement Office that gives career advice and helps talented students with placement in top companies, you must have already been profiled in the annual profile books or been recommended though your Placement Office.  You should leverage your counselors and ask them about how to get started on building your career. Remember that it is never too early, because you are competing with other students who have an edge over you because they package their coursework and affiliations better. So, don’t miss out on a good opportunity because you didn’t market yourself well enough or took too long to launch.

Use your university’s image to work for you

Moreover, all universities have their own brand worth that you can tag along on, and many universities have certain specialty areas that they are considered the best in. If your university is among the top slots in that region, you should highlight your educational star power by stating your university affiliation boldly. See ROZEE.PK Survey 2007 listing the Top 10 Universities Rated by employers.
