I come from Qatar, where I was working as a Mechanical Site Engineer in an international engineering consultant and project management company. I was excited when I arrived to Australia to explore a new life style, new culture and new work experience.
However, when I arrived to Australia I faced considerable challenges in finding a job in my industry, as local experience was a mandatory requirement for the types of jobs I was applying for and I wasn’t invited to any job interviews.
A Global Workforce supported my job seeking journey by inviting me to meetings and CV writing and interview preparation seminars. The program support continued until I was finally offered my current job, and I was even given interview support the day before my interview. All this helped me to secure my current job.
Finding out about A Global Workforce was a big relief to me after such a stressful job searching journey. It helped me to secure a job that supported me and my family and it also gave me the opportunity to gain local experience. I'm happy in my current work as I am now exposed to a new field which adds to my experience and I have been able to maintain good relationships with the employer and with my colleagues as well.
