Abu Dhabi, UAE
I haven't found a job yet, but I have a couple of irons in the fire,
and I’m doing the odd freelance project for a local public relations
and advertising firm.
I applied for a position (Head of
Information Section), with the Abu Dhabi Seaport Authority, and have been for two interviews, and an equal
number of examinations in the past two weeks.
The job was advertised in mid-September, they called me for the first
interview three weeks later. I'm the only female candidate for the
position, along with six men (I know who the competition is because we
all had to write a test at the same time).
They're also considering me for the 'lower' position of public
relations supervisor, for which I’m the lone female candidate on a
‘short list’ of 13.
