Career City by Higher Education Committee of the WMO
The Youth Wing of the WMO Pakistan Chapter yet again played a pivotal role in the management and the organization of
￼Career City; a brainchild of the Higher Education Committee and the Education Function of the WMO Pakistan Chapter.
￼Career City was held on December 30, 2012 at Sir Adamjee Institute, Hussainabad. Career City, in its totality aimed at
￼grooming the memon youth of today so that they can make informed career choices as well as decide on which career
￼path to adopt as well as to gain awareness about the variety of choices available in each career path.
￼Many universities, educationists and ￼counselors were a part of Career City ￼providing the current and potential ￼students with a chance to interact with ￼them on a one to one basis.
Renowned educationist of the memon community Mr. Ashraf Usman, also graced this occasion and conducted a career
counseling session where he highlighted how to make informed career choices and how critical it is to make the right
decision at the right time. Parents and students both benefitted from this session immensely. Q&A session followed after
this whereby many students sought the guidance of Mr. Ashraf Usman.
Along with eight institutes, there were also stalls from various fields namely; banking and finance, information technology
(IT), education, medical, business and finance, engineering and fashion in the marquee and these stalls were manned by
around twenty counselors and mentors in those respective fields who willingly answered all the questions the interested
participants put to them and also providing an opportunity for one to one counseling.
￼Also, a stall was set up by psychologists who took various tests to gauge the ability and suitability of the participants and
￼then based on the results and analysis, advised participants about a suitable career field.
￼The cricket match between India and Pakistan was also being screened during the event which added much buzz and
￼fervor to the overall atmosphere.
This initiative was appreciated by the visitors and they expect this trend to continue in the future.
