The annual jobs and education expo held by the group is worthy of appreciation, said Akhtar while visiting the stalls set up by private and government universities.
City mayor was delighted to see that the media group has been doing its bit to promote education among the people. With abundance of educational stalls, now it is very easy for the young generation to make right decision about their future, stressed Akhar.
This year’s exhibition also saw universities from Punjab taking part in the event, in addition to the local universities like Sindh Madressah-ul-Islam University, Federal Urdu University for Arts, Science and Technology, Iqra University, Hamdard University, DHA Sufa University, Muhammad Ali Jinnah University, Virtual University and others.
The attendees lamented there are no free counseling services in Karachi, which is a crucial part of our lives. However, this platform has given us the opportunity to easily connect with the universities, they added.
The expo has supported the students greatly with this event as these events benefit the youth massively, the stall owners shared. The stall owners also said that the expo continued its tradition of organising splendid exhibitions as this ensures a large number of students enrolling in universities.
Non-conventional activities were also highlighted in the event as there was battle of the bands (a musical contest), drama, dance, speech competitions, fashion show, painting and seminars were also organised.
The Group’s Associate Director Marketing Kamran Ahmed, Daily Express Editor Tahir Najmi, Bureau Chief Faisal Hussain and Senior Marketing Manager Javed Khan were among those present.
