    Can you help?

    Hi folks...and Hi Fraudia,

    You provided the website of APSENA. Its good, but its only for scientists and engineers, right? Do you know of any organization which is slightly broader in scope. I am looking for an org which also networks Pak accountants and financial ppl in USA. Are you aware of any?

    Oh! Do you know any Pakistanis in San Francisco Bay Area, with whom I can communicate via email (I mean those who are a bit friendly type)? I have to move from Pakistan to San Jose in Dec 2000, and I haven't much of a clue abt that place, especially the schooling aspect for kids(muslim school, preferably). Will appreciate any help. Thanks!

    Adios!

    Assalaamualaikum Pristine,

    I know a bit about Sanf Fran and San Jose. The area is nice, the weather is usually warm-hot, I believe you can find a Muslim school somewhere there..because there are quite a few desis in that area. When are you coming here? How long is your stay? Email me if you want to know more about the area and such. I'm not sure if there is a specific Paki group for your field...but perhaps the people I know might...

        could you drop me an email. I have to see who I know in SF area and more than that who is willing to help...(some people just could not be bothered *sigh*)

        I will try my best to get you in contact with someone who is willing and able to help.

            And thus they are individualistic? Are they self-centered? They don't wanna help others? Is that selfish personality? I'm confused, Fraudiyeh Bhai Jaan... Please, help me and explain it clearly... May be I'll learn something more about the difference b/w being individualistic and selfish....

                  I found someone who is willing to help you with your questions and he is fairly involved in that area so will be a good person to know to meet people from community etc.

                  I have sent an email to both of you to make the connection.

                  Good Luck

                          These things are hard to explain
                          For some it seems strange... to swallow
                          The frontier of our minds
                          Is the last place we find
                          But maybe the first place we should go

                            Rooster http://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/smile.gif I am a marketing type of guy.
                            but probably would be better off for a business professionals group, so even if you are in finance etc you can be a part of it.

                            I wonder of there is a Pakistani association already in Pakistan of which we can form a North american chapter. Like enginners have Pakistan engineering council etc.

                            as long as we dont allow those HR people in, I am game

                              MAP is Marketing Association of Pakistan based in Karachi but its hard to get hold of them … they have few publications out … I was a member of AMA American Marketing Association, .. now I am a member of Direct Marketing Association (based in Chicago) I am a marketing analyst myself .. what kind of ‘marketing type of guy’ are you? … I graduated with a degree in marketing .. and I never came across a desi marketing association here in North America or any where (except for MAP) .. I am willing to organize and lay ground works for some kind of Marketing/Business (Finance and management included) so we desis can have some kind of association .. to promote, help and organize marketing efforts around the globe .. these kind of asocations helps a lot in terms of job placement, continuing education, etc. … feed back please…
