I’ll be kind of busy from now on, I got a job! Alhumdulillah!
Actually technically I have two jobs because I’m doing saturdays at the daycare.
But the other job I’m really excited about, I’m the HR and Marketing Director for an IT and BPM Consulting company here in Maadi. Really, getting a job in Egypt is not about what you know, its about “who” you know. I met a group of converts that live here in Maadi (oh what a blessing they are and I will write more about them in the future) and the husband of one of them was looking to hire. Alhumdulillah rabiyyal-ameen.
The company is wonderful, I’d love to put the name out there (especially since I’m Marketing Director as well) but the company’s address is on the website and I don’t really want to be stalked. Hit me up on facebook in a couple of weeks to find out the company.
I’m so excited, I’m going to be working like an Egyptian donkey but its great. I’m getting my hands into something and making a difference, remember when I complained about feeling like I achieved nothing in my other jobs?
I voted last week, I took the metro to the Embassy and made it to the doors with 4 minutes to spare before they stopped allowing people in. Procrastination will kill me someday. But I did my part, even from here. I’m curious if they mail them to the states or if they count them here. I’m assuming they mail them but it would make sense just to have a designated ballot-counter and count them here and report the numbers. No one ever said the government was about efficiency.
And you should too!
Seriously people, get out there and vote. Except for you mom, you can stay home and not vote if you want. 😛
