 Written by: Aqsa Sediqi

According to the information provided by the Ministry of Higher Education of Afghanistan, about 174 thousand students had participated in the university entry exam in 2019. One-third of the university's successful students are girls.

When these girls educate from the university, they need a job to strengthen their family economy but how could they find a job?

AEPO’s writer/producer has talked to 2 girls about this issue.

A girl, Zarlasht says, “I found a job after the 1 week of my graduation from university. As I have studied fine arts at the university and when it was the last year of my education, I found out that there are many jobs in the field of animation. I have studied animation courses in my free time.  When I graduated, I got a job in the branch of graphic and animation in of the private TV channels. Now I have a good salary. I help my family and also study online animation courses too.

Najla, another resident of Kabul city talks about her job.

Najla says, “When I graduated from university for about more than 2 years, I was asking my friends and relatives to inform me of the job vacancy. One of my friends informed me of the job and I applied for it and I succeeded in the interview."
