A viable model of part-time employment for undergraduates of Lahore 3 Abstract This study shall provide us with an opportunity to envisage the potential in the undergraduates of Lahore, thus bringing in limelight the factors that hinder their participation in the labour market. We shall also be able to identify social-economic perspective of this issue taking feedback from various segments of the society like students, teachers, parents and other people from the society. As a result of this identification, we aim to substantiate the viability of a model that is similar to that being undertaken in first world countries like U.S.A and U.K. The underlying purpose of the study is to bring about self-realization in undergraduates and provide them with opportunities that shall enable them to progress economically. For this purpose to materialize, we aim to analyze their reactions through conducting surveys that will provide us with decisive quantifiable data on the subject matter. Moreover, interviews will be administered for part-time employed and for undergraduates actively seeking work. The interviews will be useful in providing subjective qualitative data for further analysis.

A viable model of part-time employment for undergraduates of Lahore 4 The availability of proper jobs for undergraduates of Lahore; perceptions of undergraduate employment and its socio-economic impacts The research shall enable us to clearly identify merits and demerits of part time work and its precise likely impact on students’ studies in a scenario where a model of part-time employment is implemented in Lahore. The feasibility of legislative measures in order to provide the undergraduates with better and flexible employment opportunities will also be discussed in our paper. The practicality of such a measure will be considered and social change required to implement this model will be discussed in detail. Our mix of research tools shall provide us with information that will help us to establish credibility of our hypothesis. Precisely the assumption is that implementation of a model of part-time employment similar to that in U.K and U.S.A shall yield greater benefits than costs; and effective management of time can lead to socio-economic prosperity. Our research suggests that undergraduates can play a vital role in the socio-economic uplift of our country and our part-time employment model has the ability to reduce the impacts of the prevailing socio-economic crises in Lahore.
