Happy Independence day #Pakistan

Happy 14th august o all pakistanis. Listen to national anthem & songs, feel the goose bumps & celebrate the day with full zeal and zest. I want to share my favourite national song written by Kaleem Usmani and sung by Mehdi Hassan. Truly, this song is richest regarding message to all of us:

Yeah watan tumhara hey, tum ho pasbaan is ke
yeah chaman tumhara hey, tum ho naghma khuwaan is ke

Yeah watan tumhara hey, tum ho pasbaan is ke
Is chaman ke phoolon per, rang o aab tum se hey
Is zameen ka her zara, aaftab tum pey hey
ye fiza tumhari hey, Behr o bar tumhare hain,
Kehkeshaan ke yeah jaale, rehguzar tmhare hain

Yeah watan tumhara hey, tum ho pasbaan is ke

Is zameen ki mitti me, khoon hey shaheedon ka
arz-e-paak markaz hey, qoum ki umeedon ka
Nzm-o-zabt ko apna, meer-karwana jano
waqt ke andheron me apna aap pehchaano

Yeah watan tumhara hey, tum ho pasbaan is ke

Yeah zameen muqadas hey, maa ke pyar ki soorat
Is chaman me tum sub ho, barg-o-baar ki soorat
daikhna gawana mut, doulat-e-yaqeen logo
Yeah watan amanat hey aur tum ameen logo

Yeah watan tumhara hey, tum ho pasbaan is ke

Meer-e-karwaan hum they, rooh-e-karwaan tum ho
Hum tu sirf unwaan they, asl-e-daastan tum ho
Nafraton ke darwaze, khud pey band hee rakhna
Is watan key parcham ko sirbuland hee rakhna

Yeah watan tumhara hey, tum ho pasbaan is ke
Yeah chaman tumhara hey, tum ho naghma khuwaan is ke

Long live Pakistan.

Best times #Folio3

One of the best thing happened to me after FAST was, getting job in #Folio3. Today, when I was going through my pictures drive, suddenly I clicked pictures of annual dinner of #Folio3 #Karachi. I realized that I owe this place & people working there for giving me one amazing time and of course a wonderful professional starter.

Most of the times, graduating CS students  in #Karachi, ask me question of which place to apply for a job and join. I reply, ‘Folio3’. And, again why Folio3?

So, here are few reasons out of many reasons that I suggest Folio3.

1. Because you want to play a sixer in your first over:

Folio3 is one great place to start your career with. From trainings to projects, it provides you all working opportunities where you can groom professionally.

2. Because you want to be in the team of best IT players:

Folio3 is the place where you would get the opportunity to meet one of the best professionals.

3. Because you want to be led by great mentors:

Yes, from CEO(Mr. Adnan Lawai) to directors, from project managers to the team leads, you will learn & relearn.

& to experience all this, you would have to give your classic shot to get into Folio3.

I want to thanks all Folio3 mates for being there with me in making the best times. Project colleagues, Team ECC(Entertainment & Cultural Committee), Team Table Tennis & Team Van, all you made my Folio3 life.

#Radio #FirstLove #RJing #Experience

I should jot down my experience of being in the place (utopia for me), before it fades away from my memory. Ah, it cannot fade away as I waited for this time since my childhood.

That was 7th May 2014. I took half leave from office, getting various tips from colleagues for the audition. I left my cell phone in office and had to get back to office to take it. Enough of the tension.  :/

Anyway, I reached Islamabad Traffic Police office and that was the place where Fm 92.4 studio was. A young guy welcomed me. He had juice and did not offer me. I had water bottle and I did not offer him. So, call it even :D

This guy introduced me to the staff and showed me the way to main studio. And, there I was in STUDIO for RJing. I was hoping for some serious kind of meet up or audition but no, according to him, he gave me a surprise. He informed me that we are doing show live. That was not a surprise rather a shock. :O

He started the show in his cool style. And, suddenly I realized that I was speechless. I drank litters of water. It took me a while to settle down. This was the first time I was out of words. I was grateful to Rj for supporting me to speak up.

Then, it was callers turn. It was one nice moment when people call you to actually talk to you. I was amazed that people actually took out time to call. Their love and enthusiasm helped me in getting back my energy.

Overall, it was an awesome experience. I am looking forward for doing this on repeat.

Oh, oh, oh, how can I miss that! That would be so unfair if I do not mention people who helped me to experience all this.

A big shout out to Fatemah Sajwani for introducing me to this Rj guy :P Don’t forget to follow her blog: https://whatfatemahsay.wordpress.com/

Thank you Areepha Esar for calling me on show and wishing me luck <3

So, you are thinking who is this Rj guy? Thank you so much Humayun Zaib Abbasi for not offering me juice but all the help and support. You took the risk to take me to live show, and though, it did not go well (that’s another story :P ).

Being reader of this blog, it becomes our duty to like his facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/rjzaibabbasi Listen to his show ONCE on FM 92.4 on wednesday & thursday at 4 pm. Then, you will keep on listening to him, i bet . (Y)

Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success. Feeling happy and blessed to be the first engineer of the family and first female chemical engineer from Gilgit Baltistan. I dedicate my this success to my great brother Javed Gohar. He motivated me to do this and stood up with me in every up and down

Words shared by Miss Zahira Gohar who recently graduated from Dawood University of Engineering and Technology, Karachi. I congratulate her for this great achievement. I wish her all the best and hope that she will continue to play an important role in progress of Gilgit Baltistan. Thumbs up Zahira (Y)

 

Lets find an internship!!

While, students in universities pack up their semesters by getting rid of finals, they also start searching for summer internships. In this regard, many undergraduate students contacted  me. During these months, I seriously felt like sharing few tips, which will help  under graduate students and fresh graduates in finding internships and jobs:

1. Use a proper and formal email id to send your resume to any company or person. Please, don’t use you first email id to communicate professionally . I feel it very awkward, when anyone sends me resume with an email like cute_me@gmail.com and smartboy_86@hotmail.com. And, I am sure every HR person would feel the same.

2. Please, rename your resume title as “ApplicantName_Designation”. For example, If a candidate applies for the post of Content  writer and his/her name is  ABC, title of resume document will be “Content writer_ABC”..  Avoid sending your resume/CV with title myresume or CV_2 etc.

3. Mention the designation for which you are applying, in subject of email properly.

4. While you send resume to anyone, mention your objectives clearly. Mention, what your strengths and interests are. If you are confused about your objectives and strengths, discuss it with your seniors who are professionally working. I am sure your seniors will help you.

5. Whenever you contact any senior, please contact them in a professional manner. It looks weird when anyone sends a message on facebook “yr koi internship dilwa do. kaheen pey bi, bs internship lagwa do “. That is quite annoying. Its good to have a 1-1 meeting with any senior to discuss queries related to your jobs and internships.

6. Google jobs related to your major subjects and interests. You will get an idea about professional career and you can surely discuss your queries in a more understanding manner.

7. Create your linkedin account and try not to use it like facebook or twitter. Make connections and describe your work and interests. Add your contact info. This will help you in introducing to different companies and people who have the vacancies for internships and jobs.

Although these tips are very simple, but they will surely be better way to present yourself in professional world. Remember, internships are first step into your professional career in one way.

Good Luck.

P.S: Thank you Owais Zafar for providing me this picture.
