she responded me within 5 hours and said that if you need my help urgently then come to my office. Then I mailed her that “Yes I have to discuss with you urgently ASAP”.

Then i came to her office. I discussed with her all the situation. she spoke after 5 minutes silence that you have a good degree but have no job. This is really a critical situation. I understand your feelings and this is a good attempt that you are preparing yourself early before experience all that.

Then she gave answers of my questions in such words:

An employee need not to be worry at all at work. He/She has to spend time on brainstorming first and then implement the ideas in order to complete a challenge. If you will not be successful in dealing with your challenge then keep yourself calm and need not to fight or be aggressive with others. Again start your work and put your effort as much as you can in a work.

You have to be humble and show patience Because you will be new at job place and it is compulsory that you will face hurdles while handling with all tasks. You will just need to focus on work and also need not to indulge in the politics of other fellows at job.

You can be successful by your work performance. You can impress your boss by showing passion for work. Consistency and punctuality are also very important at job.

You can get promotion by showing loyalty for work. Hard working is necessary for it as it is a key to success.

Time management is compulsory at job. Always make a timetable for every task in the morning and then work accordingly. In this way, you will free from all tensions and be focused on what you have to do.

I have a fellow named Amir Shehzad. He is a Auditor. I will send you more detail about him soon. In case of any guidance, you can meet with him and get guidance with-in few hours. He is an HACCP certified and also doing job in a well reputed organization. He can better guide you instead of me and If you want to join your dream company then keep in touch with the updates of the company. You can join keep in touch with a company by social media (Facebook pages, LinkedIn etc). All the relevant information will make your path clear towards a good position in that company .

She guided me in a very well way. She advised me that “Remember don’t be give up in any situation. Always try to work hard and just pray to Allah.

Today I send him a thank you email.

Dear Mam Atiya,

Hopefully you are good and feel fresh after taking rest.

Thank you for giving me a time. I am really glad that you gave me importance and you cared about me. I love your suggestions and the way, you guided me. I will follow your guidelines.
