  1. salam pakistan. jnab main na intrn ship k lea apply keya tha but ubi tuk koi reply nhi aya y?
    just reply plzzzzzzzz

  2. 18 thousand degrees rejected by universities,,fears arise of nip to b a failed story

    According to latest statistics provided by ministry of youth affairs on their official web-site,Out of 62422 degrees sent for verification to hec to be verified by universities,17558 records have been rejected by universities,19807 are verified and 25047 records are still pending.Now these records told the whole story,,Universities were not verifying degrees and their was pressure on them to get degrees verified so now they are showing records as rejected so no one can ask from them.
    Its not long ago that ministry annouce that now instead of giving 30 thousand people internship ,,the ministry has decided to give 50 thousand internship in the N.I.P 2009,,The full news story can be read by going to this link

    This news was published in all major Urdu and English news papers

    17558 records are rejected by universities,,before this 2116 candidates were rejected due to over-age,wrong c.n.i.c,already availed internship and other reasons,so out of 62422 applications 42748 are left as valid,,25047 degrees are still pending for verification,it means that now there are more seats now and less applications?
    This all seem to be a joke to unemployed youth of Pakistan,,now is there any reasons why 17558 records are rejected by universities?Will candidates be informed that they are rejected by their university?
    Answer to all these questions is “No”.,universities are not accountable,,No one is asking from them that why they took so long for verification and now what are the reasons for rejection.A video conference was held to pressurize V.C’s of universities to make verification process fast,,what they done fast is this they rejected a big number of degrees so no one can raise fingers to them.
    Besides all this why ministry of youth affairs is not announcing now that all remaining candidates will get internship now as their are more seats then application,the answer is they will not announce because now plannings must be going on to utilize the fund provided by Asian development bank to some “other” place.

    More over most of the candidates selected in the 1st batch didn’t start their internship until now although it over one and a half month since the lists were displayed of selected candidates.

    What all this means? This means that National Internship Program is a failed story now,A project which was giving chance for government to gain credibility in youth is proving to be another nail in the coffin to the selected government due to bureaucracy,corrupt officers,ignorance by universities and “officer shahi”.
    The youth which was waiting anxiously waiting this program to be successfully completed is now further depressed and frustrated,they are feeling as humiliated,as more then 15 thousand people daily visiting nation internship program website to see is there any latest news now know that nothing will happen.
    On ning network number of youth were discussing when,how ,,will program will get going,,sad news for them is this that national Internship Program was another false activity to fool them.
    Most probably their are chances that ministry of youth affairs will hold the program here or will suspend it now .
    Is there any one who will ask from hec officers that why verification process was so slow?Will hec ask the reasons from universities that why records are rejected?will Ministry of youth Affairs be asked why this process was so lengthy ?

  13. Hi everyone,

    I would first like to say that its my opinion whatever I’m going to right and Raza bhai will confirm soon who posted this.
    MENSA doesn’t have to do anything with government or these internship programs, what we do here is simply inform you about some opportunities that you can avail, as you can read from the post that it is an internship offered by government and MENSA has no part to play in it neither know the status of any applications. The sole purpose of such posts is informing fellow MENSANs of the opportunity available that you can apply it.
    However, there are at times some opportunities like the TRG talent hunt and another TRG job opportunity in which Hasan bhai was directly contacted and asked for MENSANs in which case we can be of help, so in short before getting angry on us, kind confirm if there is anything we can do about it :)

  14. Asslamu alaikum
