Pakistan Association of Automotive Parts & Accessories Manufacturer (PAAPAM)
Fortunately there is Industrial Open House Fair in our university from April 9, 2016 to April 8, 2016 and being a final year student I have golden opportunity to display our Final Year Project (FYP) poster in front of them. Many private industries took participate in this fair. So there is chance to impress them and become a part of their organization. In this respect I find out the name of the industries related to my field that are coming and choose one company as a target. Target is not for attack or something, it just a goal that I want to achieve with my effort and that is also not my dream company I just want to implement the knowledge that I learn from Amal Academy practically in my life. The company that I choose is Pakistan Association of Automotive Parts & Accessories Manufacturer (PAAPAM). It is founded in 1988 and Mr.Munir K Bana is chairman of this automotive industry, produce components for passenger cars, tractors, motorcycles, 3-wheelers, trucks, and busses with localization level ranging from 40% to over 90%. This company makes the parts of many famous brands like Suzuki, Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, Messy Ferguson, Fiat, Hino, Nissan, Isuzu, Daewoo etc. The mission of this industry is “To build a competitive edge in the local automotive parts industry by maximizing local content and by creating an environment which is conducive to innovation & rapid modernization and is in sync with latest Research and Development”. PAAPAM’s vision is “To emerge as a strategically viable indigenized source of supply of automotive parts through maximization of local content and by meeting the industry norms of quality, price and delivery”. Similarly, I made a lot of research about the industry profiles, products, recent updates and news etc. and I also meet the Nabeel Ahmad (he is In HR department) during the Open House Fair and show him our final year practical model & videos and also get a lot of information’s about industry. These information helps me a lot while my interview with them. You think how I get my interview with them! So I want to tell you this is not due to any of my effort, this is all because of luck because luckily PAAPAM conduct an interview section in our university on April 8, 2016 and I use all these information during my Interview and these research increase my possibilities of being selected :)
I also talk to my friend and ask him about his target industry and the methods from which he get information about the industry and how he apply this in sending them email for job vacancy and also get very interesting information about the experience he achieved during all this work. This is very interesting activity in which you get information about our dreams industry and use it for getting the job in the same industry.
