For getting the Membership you do need to complete your PER.
Unfortunately even after completeing fundamental level papers you are finding difficulty in finding a firm where you can start your internship.
I personally suggest you to keep trying in Local CA firms, If you are already graduated it should not be difficult for you to get started. Just do not keep the expectations too high. And even the hopes so low if you arent a graduate, I myself doing my graduation but still just on 12th basis and ACCA student's basis i got started with my internship in an Indian CA firm.
I hope you do too.
Best wishes

First of all in Pakistan the CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT BODY known as the ICAP do not recommend to hire any ACCA's  beside this I am also not graduated but I did CAT after completing my college program.
I send my C.V  to top ten firms in PAKISTAN including the big 4 firms. But didn't received any reply by them. I am not GREEDY about the money or salay. But I need experience.
Any suggestions on this ??????

Dont keep your hopes too high. Some time it might just give you hard time finding a job.
Keep trying. Target small sized audit/tax counsulting firms to give you a start.
