Do you think the studies you have done/are doing is preparing you well for the current, highly competitive job market?

An opportunity to participate in a British Council event.

The British Council is collaborating with the Young Parliamentarians’ Forum, under Mr. Faisal Kundi’s patronage, the National Assembly Deputy Speaker, to launch a series of dialogue forums focusing on Pakistani youth’s issues as highlighted in the Next Generation Report.

These dialogue forums will provide young people and the young legislators a platform where they can discuss the pertinent issues which affect the lives of thousands of young Pakistanis and find a way of responding to them at the policy making level. The Young Parliamentarians’ Forum will then collate all the suggestions from these forums and formulate a document which will be presented to the National Assembly, so the issues could be solved.

The latest survey on “Careers: Opportunities and Challenges for Pakistani Youth” will be on the British Council’s website: soon.

We are inviting you to the Second Dialogue Forum focusing on “Careers: Opportunities and Challenges for Pakistani Youth” in Islamabad (for ISB participants only).

The event is scheduled on Tuesday, December 21, 2010 from 1630 – 1830 hrs. Please contact Saad Bajwa at for confirming your participation and general enquiries.
