Yayvo’s Get Set School is a new talk of the town

Standard

Ever since its launch, Yayvo.com has been setting benchmarks for the ecommerce industry in Pakistan. The TCS brand has managed to stay a top of mind and sight on digital with their campaigns and offerings.

This year, capitalizing on the Back-to-School time, Yayvo has come up with the first ever Education E-Store, providing the utmost ease for parents and students to shop from the comfort of their homes as they get ready for yet another year of school.

The new campaign has become the talk of the town and has been able to turn eyeballs towards the brand’s approach to leverage ecommerce in Pakistan.

Yayvo’s Get Set School campaign lets you shop for your uniforms, books and all other school essentials online while saving a ton of time and effort.

This surely has opened up new avenues for experimentation and conversations in terms of growth of ecommerce in Pakistan and digital media marketing.

Jobs for Women in Pakistan – Unilever Career by Choice

Standard

Women in Pakistan, regardless of what field they choose to study, often are forced to settle down and leave their careers one they attain what elders call ‘suitable age’ for marriage. Old aunties are often on the lookout for well educated young girls to marry them to their sons – only to then sit at home and not utilize any of the skills and knowledge the girls spent years learning.

Societal pressure makes many women hesitant to pursue the career of their dreams. At times an opportunity leads them away from home, maybe to a distant land. Just the idea of living alone and working is enough to earn a no from their family members.
