Silveroo’s Guidelines to Job Hunting in Bahrain

Tags: , ,

Here's a clever post from $iLveR GiRL, who describes herself as "An edgy, simple Bahraini girl who likes things and people that are positively out of the ordinary."

تخيلوا لو أصدرت حقاً كتاباً مثل الكتاب أعلاه؟أفترض أن يكون من أكثر الإصدارات مبيعاً، بالطبع لا لأنني من كتبه، ولكن لأن التائهين والمتوهقين كُثر.لا أزعم أن هناك وصفات ذهبية لضمان الحصول على عمل في بلد العجائب (ما قصرتين SillyBahrainiGirl.. حتى ترجمة المصطلح حليوة)، فمشاكل سوق العمل والفساد الإداري والوظيفي أكبر من أن تجعل لأي وصفة مفعول مضمون ولو طُبقت حرفياً، واللي فيه خير ينكر الظلم الجائر الدائر في المؤسسات بفرعيها الخاص والحكومي.ولكن من باب تعميم الخير وتبادل الخبرات، أشارككم خلاصة تجربتي في البحث عن وظيفة في البحرين، صغتها على هيئة خطوط إرشادية عريضة لعلها تساعد المقبلين على مثل هذا التحدي في خوض التجربة.

“Imagine if I really published the book you see here. I assume it would be a best-seller. Of course, that is not because I have written it but because those who are lost and confused are a lot. I don’t claim there are magic solutions to guarantee finding a job in Wonderland (Thank you Silly Bahraini Girl, even translating the name sounds nice) because problems in the jobs market and administrative corruption are bigger than ensuring that any tip could have the expected result, even if applied to the letter. And I challenge those who are up to it to deny the gross injustice found in organisations, both in the public and private sectors. In order to spread goodness and exchange expertise, I would like to share with you my experiences in looking for a job in Bahrain. I have posted them in the form of guidelines which will hopefully help those about to take the challenge and enter this experience (of looking for a job),” she explains.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
