Mustakbil.com Partners With National Business Education Accreditation Council (NBEAC) – HEC for 5th Deans & Directors Conference 2018

Dear Valued Members,

We are pleased to announce our partnership with National Business Education Accreditation Council (NBEAC) – HEC for 5th Deans & Directors Conference 2018.

About NBEAC:

National Business Education Accreditation Council (NBEAC), was established by Higher Education Commission (HEC) in 2007 to assure quality in business education degree programs. NBEAC is a national level accrediting authority to organize and carry out comprehensive program of accreditation. Our Mission Statement: “Enhancing the Quality of Business Education”

Purpose:

NBEAC’s Deans and Directors Conference annually brings together more than 100 deans and directors of business schools for strategic level discussions. This year’s conference will focus on the balance required between global paradigms versus the need to customize business education in Pakistan according to the local needs. Both businesses and business schools in Pakistan – small or large, urban or rural – face competition for products and services created by the spread of information technology and globalization. However, our context, culture and heritage demands a certain degree of indigenization in management practices and in business education. The conference program is designed to increase the effectiveness of business education in Pakistan, through debate on the mentioned issues and through related refinements in the accreditation process.

Mustakbil.com Partners With Possibilities for “Certified Success Coach”

We are pleased to announce our partnership with Possibilities for “Certified Success Coach”

Certified Success Coach‘ is Pakistan’s most respected Coaching Certification Program. The program is led by Pakistan’s Premium Success Coach, Qaiser Abbas(www.qaiserabbas.org) Possibilities (www.possibilities.net.pk) is on a mission to establish country’s largest Coaches Network capable of delivering first-class results.

Our coaches are passionately serving the society by offering FREE coaching sessions as part of their coaching certification requirement. So far, some 1,250 people from various walks of life have been coached by our under-training coaches using ‘Qaiser Abbas Dare Coaching System™’. We aim to reach out to 3,750 people with our complimentary coaching sessions by the end of 2017.

In each program, we develop 25 coaches. These 25 participants are selected through a three-step rigorous process on pure merit basis. In the first program in January 2017, we received 900 applications. In the second one in February, over 1500 candidates applied. In both programs our team selected  25 best of the best participants to work with Qaiser and his coaching team.

Unlike most of the coaching certification programs, we don’t award participants with the certificate at the end of the two day training. Participants go through the laborious 8-stage process spread over six months to earn their coaching certification. Here is the process:

Pre-qualification [Application Review, Assessment & Interview]

  1. Pre-Training e-learning modules
  2. 2-3 days of extensive learning experience
  3. THREE months application of coaching methodology with  25 coaches under the supervision of Qaiser’s coaching team.
  4. TWO days of ADVANCED coaching skills training
  5. THREE months of coaching PRACTICE with 25 clients
  6. FINAL evaluation before the certification
  7. On-going support in setting up your own coaching brand

Seeing the phenomenal success of the first two batches, we are launching the 3rd Batch in May 2017.

We are on a mission to build quality coaches to create awareness of coaching in Pakistan. It is worth sharing that the program fee is heavily subsidized by Possibilities. Yet, many people who get selected through a transparent process, are not able to afford the course fee. In the last two programs, in addition to subsidizing the fee, Possibilities Foundation has also provided scholarships to 8-10 participants in each program to help them complete their certification.

Response to irresponsible reporting in local media about Mustakbil.com’s tax matters

Hello Readers,

This blog entry is in response to a news item published in local newspapers that somehow includes Mustakbil.com in a list of websites not paying taxes to the regional tax authorities. It is deplorable that the news item was published without taking our point of view despite us being named explicitly in the said news item.

We believe, it is necessary at our part to put things in perspective to make sense to our valued members and well wishers.

Mustakbil.com - Jobs in Pakistan & Middle East

Mustakbil.com – Jobs in Pakistan & Middle East

On June 10th 2016, we received a notice from Punjab Revenue Authority (PRA) advising us to register Mustakbil.com for Sales tax on services. However, there were no allegations of tax evasion leveled against Mustakbil.com as one might takeout from that particular news item.

Mustakbil.com is a brand of TechnoBird (duly registered with PRA); an active tax payer with compliance level 100%. All invoices for business generated through Mustakbil.com are serviced using business name “TechnoBird” and Sales Tax collected for the services is submitted to the government exchequer.

We considered this notice an incident of miscommunication and immediately got in touch with PRA regarding the matter. An official response to the notice was duly submitted to the competent authority clarifying our stance. The matter was settled once we made available all the necessary information to the PRA officials.

We take this opportunity to elaborate that we are committed to abiding by all the laws of the land and will continue to contribute to the national development by paying all applicable taxes.

Mustakbil.com thanks all its members and well wishers for their continued support and urge them not to pay heed to baseless news stories published against Mustakbil.com. If you want to know more about our business practices, please feel free to get in touch with:

How to prepare and perform in a Job Interview

How to prepare and perform in a Job Interview

Got an interview call? Great! Its not just the call of opportunity but of a test to judge you as a potential candidate for a particular job.

Preparing & Performing in a  Job Interview

Preparing & Performing in a Job Interview

Getting an interview call is just half the work done in your job hunt. Many who get the interview call just don’t know how to present themselves and behave during a job interview. There are probably hundreds of articles written in detail about how to dress up or behave during an interview.

Here I will just list down some important points to follow while preparing for an interview and brief information about each point.

Dos and Donts

When you receive an interview call:

-          Make sure you show your interest in that particular Employer and the proposed job. A cold response to the interview call wills half your chances of a good interview.

-          Clearly convey to the Employer that you wish to appear for the interview on the assigned date and time. If for any reason you could not appear for the interview, mention that to the potential Employer.

-          Clearly understand the interview schedule i.e. date, time and venue. Employers hate late comers and time wasters.

-          Ask which documents you are required to bring with for the interview. Initially Employers just ask for your resume but its good to be clear.

-          Take the contact details of the relevant person for correspondence regarding the interview.

Dressing:

-          Remember that you are the “product” you will be going to “sell” to the Employer. Dress yourself properly with decent and neat attire. A product in a nice packaging stands a better chance of selling than one in a poor packaging.

-          Wear decent accessories that suit your personality, like a watch, cufflink, a tie or a pair of glasses. For men wearing accessories like chains, bracelets or cowboy hats etc. is not a good idea.

-          Do your hair properly.

-          Your shoes must be clean and in good shape. Remember that your hair and shoes are the first to get a viewer’s attention.

The Interview; “Perform” like a Champion:

-          Before going for an interview, research and know as much as possible about the organization, its business, competitors and market standings etc.

-          Reach on time for an interview. Being late reduces your chances of getting hired up to 50%.

-          You are here to perform; your good “performance” can make you a star and get you the job. Needless to mention the consequences of a bad performance.

-          Be confident; you’ve already done half the work for getting this job by getting an interview call.

-          “First impression is the last impression”; make a pleasant entry in the interview hall/room. Pass a smile (not a silly one) to the interviewer/interview panel.

-          If in a reachable distance, make a warm hand shake (no need to crack his/her bones) with the interviewer.

-          Answer each question clearly and confidently. Shaky voice shows lack of confidence.

-          After the interview, ask questions about the organization, job responsibilities, work environment etc. Remember these questions are important to show your interest in the company and willingness to work with them.

-          After the interview session, take the interviewer’s leave, make a positive handshake with a decent smile and leave the room/hall.

Why you should get your resume written by experts

Employer or Jobseeker, you must have come across the term “CV/Resume for any suitable position”. Now the question, is there exists a “CV/Resume for any suitable job”? the answer is no. “One size fits all” is a myth and is as false in this case. You are unique are so should be your Resume/CV.

Mustakbil.com- Jobs in Pakistan

Mustakbil.com- Jobs in Pakistan

Getting a CV written by an expert is often considered as a time and money wasting “luxury”. But the fact is that, the money spent on getting a CV written by a professional is an investment which pays you for years to come; as you climb your professional ladder. Much sooner than you think; often through your next paycheck.

Times of using a single CV/Resume for applying to multiple jobs have long gone. Nowadays you need a custom CV for basically each job switch or job hunt for that matter. Keep in mind that your Cv/Resume reaches the employer before you and it serves as your “marketing brochure”. And like a good one, it must highlight all the qualities you have and “sell” you for the job.

Like for any other service, hiring an expert resume writing service is a good idea, irrelevant of your career level. Either you are a fresher, an executive or an experienced manager, tweaks and fixes to your Resume/CV are needed and are to be done by experts.

There are several freelancers and companies providing Resume/CV writing services. Which one to choose is a tough call, but a few points kept in mind will help you make a better choice:

-          Who they are?

-          Their experience in Human Resources / Recruiting?

-          For how long they’ve been operating?

-          How are their writing skills?

-          Do they have any certification?

-          How good are their confidentiality practices?

-          What is their privacy policy?

-          Do they have physical presence?

-          Do they offer revisions?

Consider your resume like your “fingerprints”. They are unique, identifiable in a million and are everywhere in the Job market. Do not rely on templates usually posted on the internet.  If you can’t afford a writer, at least use a Resume builder to generate a properly formatted resume.
