Dear Maryam,

Thank you for query.

I have analyzed all the views and concerns of you.

Firstly i suggest you to do Master or MS in Political Science. When you were getting admission in the college, you have to get all the information before getting admission. There is no need to be disappointed dear, you have to be brave and fight back for the sake of your family.

Firstly, create your professional cv or resume in a manner that attract the employers.

Secondly get connected in social networks like LinkedIn and Facebook internet for the latest updates and information regarding political scenario and situation of Pakistan.

Keep trying for the job and forward your resume to me also, so that i can forward it in my social network. Remember one thing Maryam; you will have to struggle for the start. If you find any job as internship, accept it and get the experience of work, once you have it, you will be on stairs.

I am hopeful that you will get a good job soon.

I have read and understood your problem and will suggest you to do Masters in Political Science.

Feel free to contact for any further assistance @

Good Luck :)

Hey! You are awesome!

The spirit as you have, it’s very rare and Masha’ALLAH you are too good.
To study in college and university is something else… The spirit to
stand in all odds, it’s the real education.

Hats off, Maryam… Masha’ALLA, May all the youth get this spirit. Well, you’ve completed your BS (Hons) Congratulations! Now your are eligible for M.Phil. degree program. Because your

Educational status is already equal to MS. So go for M.Phil. Think about to attempt CSS exams.

Masha’ALLAH you have a preliminary attitude of CSP Officer.

May Allah bless you with more and more…?

Best of Luck! :)

I sympathize with you regarding the University’s conduct but we have to face the challenge. The very best break you can get is by getting foreign scholarship for studying history, IR or some art subject (check up with embassies and university counselors).

Second best will be if you get into some International NGO and being near Capital there should be lots of openings for Social work, Gender equality, women & child welfare, Monitoring & evaluation etc.

 Third get into Sales department of a good company, it is tough field but has most openings with highest dividends.

 To study further, I suggest Law, Quality and Sales but no MBA; do MSc in pure subject and you will be all set for your future.

 Best of luck!!
