Job Asaan is a model intervention launched by Punjab Commission on the Status of Women to increase female labour force participation in Punjab. Currently, the women’s participation rate in the labour force stands at 24% nationwide in Pakistan and about 28% in Punjab. Only 25% of the women in Pakistan who have a college degree work outside their homes. The main reason cited for this is the inability to find a suitable job. Job Asaan aims to fill this gap by helping educated women find jobs and enter the labor force. Women looking for jobs can sign-up through the Job Asaan online portal and be matched with suitable employers according to their profiles. In order to improve the profiles of individuals, the center will offer female-only staff coupled with a female-only co-working space. The center is equipped with state of the art computers, internet, and printing facilities all provided free of cost. Other services that Job Asaan offers includes trainings, mentoring, and job counselling
