Need Help

Yusra Shaukat
Posted November 6, 2019 from Pakistan

Hello everyone, 

I hope all the amazing souls in this platform are doing great. I am really sorry for not being active for quite longer time, as I was out of network. Also, I noticed that I have missed so many events on World Pulse. 

I have a purpose behind writing this post. I graduated in May, 2019 with a bachelor's degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics along with a minor n Developmental Studies from Asian University for Women, Bangladesh. It was an amazing experience living in Bangladesh. It gave a whole new meaning and perspective to my life. Living with students from 17 different countries not only helps you to get along  with diversity but also it teaches you to stay strong with your own culture and roots. I am really thankful for all my amazing Professors and friends for giving me some really good life lessons. 

After my graduation, I came to Pakistan and spent almost 3 months in my village. It was a whole new experience. I ate desi food after a long time. During this time, I was also part of a project named as Multi Input Resettlement Program. This project was initiated by some very well known organizations such as AKRSP, FOCUS, AKES and AKAH. It was a 15 days long survey. 

Now, I am looking out for jobs. I sent out my CV to many places, but I have not get any response from them yet. My expertise are Research, event management, editing and content writing. It would be really appreciated, if I can get any help from you people or you can connect me to some other people in your circle. It would be a great help from your side. 

Looking forward for positive response. You can also reach me out on my email address which is shaukatyusra@gmail.com.

Hello Dear Yusra,

How are you doing, dear? It's great to see an update from you. What exactly are you looking for dear, i.e., what kind of job, where, FT, temporary FT? Also, you may like to post on the "resources" page since it's a need: https://www.worldpulse.com/my-pulse/resources. I would also recommend Idealist.org if you're looking for philanthropic opportunities. It seems to be a good resource. Let us know how it goes and please keep us informed on any updates.

Dear Yursa,

Congratulation on your degree! I'm afraid I do not have any connections at the moment, I recommend you to go through my posts for resources. I regularly share opportunities, specifically catering to South-Asian contexts, like fellowships and grants for projects. I hope it will help you find something you are interested in. All the best, dear!
