    2. When you finish your education, your life and goals (have )changed. You want to employ the skills you have gained at ( ) university or college in your ( ) field and make a good living. In return (for) your hard work and investment, you need a good job that pays you well. Fayaz, a (recent) university graduate, was among those hardworking and honest students who only depend (on) skills and knowledge. He, too, like other hardworking students, struggles to find a job to support himself and his family. Getting a job becomes even more difficult in a country where there is not much value (placed on peoples' worth). He lived in Sindh province of Pakistan where getting a job was not easy ( ). There was hardly any (opportunity) in the province. In societies like this, you either must have a ( ) recommendation (from) a political person, a landlord, or a good sum of money (with) which you can bribe the officers and purchase a job. In 1013(2013?), when Fayaz completed his degree, the trend of nepotism and (the) recommendation system was common. It has been continuing (for )decades. Merit was only in commission exams like FPSC, SPSC, and through tests of NTS. That is why he had left applying (for) the jobs announced by the Sindh government. He had applied (for) thousands of jobs in the Sindh government, but it even never conducted the tests properly, and never announced the results. The government took tests in (name only) and distributed the jobs on the basis of nepotism, recommendation, and (the) ministers’ quota. Many officers even sold jobs. In the province was the government of a political party which has been dominant since decades. The government would advertise the vacancies, and thousands of jobless people would apply. But the only candidates who had relations with landlords or political people would get the jobs. Many graduates moved to Karachi, the business hub of the country, to find ( )private jobs. Many graduates left Sindh province and went to Punjab, and many even left the country and went abroad. Fayaz would look for job ads in the newspapers and apply. Many times he passed the written tests, but failed in the interviews. Those candidates who pass the written exams, must have (the) recommendation of a persons in the government like a minister( ). Once Fayaz passed the written test and typing test in FIA, but failed in the interview. His wife Sara said to him, “Why don’t you go to the landlord of our village? He is an education minister. He’ll do something for you.” “I don’t think he will. He never would want the villagers to be officers. Don’t you know what he said to his farmers? He had said to them if he gave the villagers jobs who would look after his fields. It is useless to go to him.” “Look, Fayaz. They say ‘(D)o in Rome what the Roman(s ) do’. You never go to the landlord and never cheat in exams. Look at your village students they even have got jobs! And you still keep teaching on chicken feed!” “The students’ parents had been flattering the landlord for many years, they had cheated in the tests. Above all they had bribed the clerks. I cannot do this. I’d rather be jobless than do all that.” “As your wish. If I were you, if I had English like you I would do wonders. You are too foolish. What is the harm in flattering the landlord? Almost everyone (in) this village does so.” “You want me to make fun of my knowledge, skills, and efforts which I did for my education? If I have to go to the landlord, why (did I enter ) university? I should have done any degree here and flattered the landlord and bribed someone!” Fayaz believed in hardwork( ). Sooner or later (the) hard work of anyone will always bear fruit. Once (when) he was searching for jobs on the Internet in the library, he found the following literary sketch on a blog named IN THE SEARCH OF A JOB by Rizwan Ahmed Memon Traveling to different cities, Appearing at different tests and interviews, A fresh graduate from university-- Tried very hard to get a job. He studied at the library for hours, And read the job ads in the newspapers. Hoping to find vacancies, he turned page after page. Days went by he kept looking for a job. Sometimes he passed written tests, But failed in interviews. Sometimes his knowledge worked, But his luck didn’t. Sometimes his spirit Struggled and dwindled. Sometimes he collected himself And kept searching. He had a belief That hard work bears fruit, That the God’s mill grinds slow but sure. So he tried and tried and tried. As he was reading the sketch, he felt as if the writer has written it on his life. “Oh, yes God’s mill grinds slow but sure. Perhaps the author of this sketch is also suffering like me. He must have been through the same situation,” he murmured. He thought for a while that he was not the only candidate who has a university degree, but there are thousands of them. Many get jobs by hook or by crook. “I want to be one of those who get jobs by fair means,” (and he) went home with two printed ads in his hand. “So you have found some vacancies?” asked his wife. “Yea,” he said mildly. “What department? And is there any test fee? I mean will you pay a challan in the bank?” “Yes. I have to. Each post has five hundred test fees. And courier charges will be 220 for each. In total 1440.” “What will happen then? No answer as usual?” “It is not Sindh government. They will take the tests. I will keep applying. I am sure one day an appointment letter will come.” “You earn 7000 ruppes. From them you spend half of it on ads and couriers and test fees. Every month we need to take loan from the neighbors.” “I understand. But see I can’t just sit at home like this.” “You better stop applying and spend all your salary on paying deb(t)s.” “Sara, God’s mill grinds slow, but sure.” “Oh, then let’s see when it grinds for you.” Fayaz kept his struggle going. Future will tell whether he gets a job or not. The next chapter of this story would be written soon. Post comments and correction
