Explain your idea in details:
First, Pakistan's Masters and graduates are not getting the jobs and if they found one that doesn't suit their specialization or core competences, the firm will make sure to allocate the work to these registered members according to their field of study. Second, the women of our society whether in rural or urban area, faces resistance in going out for a job. Especially if they are married, they cannot leave the house and kids unattended. For this purpose, the registration will be made of these potential vendors / tutors of the firm and the work will be allocated to these members according to their specialization. Solving this problem would not only benefit the society but the country as a whole. The government would be earning in the form of taxes that will be paid by these registered members as well as the firm. For getting the attention of these students and the educated people of remote areas, the firm will visit and conduct seminars from University to University, college to college and school to school. Through this the interest would be developed and they would be guided properly to get the things done in time, efficiently and effectively.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
My society is suffering from unemployment and the most affected party in this scenario is the youngster of our country. These deserving educated youngsters are not getting the jobs which they are supposed to get. So, I would want to launch this project targeting the youngsters to do the work either from home or university. The firm will be targeting the overseas students, teachers and training institutes to get the assignments and training manuals. They will be targeted and communicated about the firm through social media marketing and through search engine optimization. Once the marketing is done and the customers started to show interest in the company and the jobs started to flow on the website, then these jobs would be allocated to the registered members of the firm according to their relevant field. Once the member accepts the job, he / she would be responsible to carry out the job in time. The quality of the service provided would be monitored to make sure that the students and institutes are getting the product as demanded and paid. If the tutor has not provided the desired product then a penalty can be imposed on the tutor i.e. one day account suspension, reimbursement of the fees charged. The customers sometime may claim that the assignment is not up to the mark. Then a dispute arises and this would need to be resolved. The dispute would be resolved by the support staff who would be checking the assignment and training manuals provided by the tutors. If the tutor has provided the satisfactory services, then the customer would be required to accept the same job.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
This business model is based on the concept of how much workload one can sustain. It depends on the tutor of how many assignments it can take at one time. However , the following would be the set up cost and revenues from the business: Website (Domain) 80,000, Office Building Rent Per Month 50,000, Tables & Chairs Cost 40,000, Computer Systems Cost 180,000, Air Conditioning Cost 150,000, Refurnishing & Miscellaneous Expenses 150,000, Staff Hiring (X5) 150,000, Promotional campaigns 200,000. Total Investment required = 1,000,000/-
