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?

Regards,
Abdul-Ahad


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 »
