This is my own success story about my struggles of finding jobs in Riyadh. It’s all about how almighty god grants me the reward after 3 years my hardship. The story starts from 5 October, 2005 earthquake in Islamabad Pakistan. Me and my husband were spending our blessed life with 2 children. I was graduated in Commerce & my husband was a teacher by profession. We were living a happy married life and Allah blesses us with one baby boy and one baby girl. We were so happy.
On the 5 October, 2005 my husband got to die because of a severe earthquake in Pakistan’s all cities. His colleagues told us that he was saving the child of his class while keeping them save the roof of room fall so quickly that he couldn’t escape from it. He died on the spot. That was a big loss in my life. He was our protector, nourisher and most of all father of my Childs. Life seems to end at this point. I had lost my sense for a few days later, my mother & father comprehend me to face and admit this reality that he is no more with us. I have to live for my child’s.
As things change I start finding jobs in Islamabad, but because of not having any experience I do not get jobs. A few months later I sell my house where I was living with my husband and applied for a passport. Once i got my passport I apply to Saudi Arabia, Riyadh visa. I just left my child with my parents and said goodbye to my Pakistan.
It was so difficult for me to survive all alone in a strange country. But I have to for my children. After having a flat on rent I just do 3 things to find jobs in Riyadh. And these things are listed as:
1. Top Websites Jobs in Riyadh
I suffer on the internet about all top websites jobs in Riyadh. Added my account on all sites and applied for the appropriate positions. I had applied through mysaudijobs website. It was so user friendly website and authenticated as well that I got immediately a ‘Thank You’ replay from that particular website I just applied before. I had almost applied for all the suitable positions on jobs in Riyadh.
2. Offices in Riyadh
Later I had taken out print of my resume and post by hand to all the multinational & small business companies’ jobs in Riyadh. I just want to get employed to as soon as possible. So I wouldn’t want to miss any opportunity. I had to support my child and lower the financial weight on my parents.
3. News Paper Jobs Ads
I went to a new paper center and buy a newspaper. All I want to find jobs in Riyadh. Therefore, I don’t want to miss out any job in Riyadh. One of my friends Fatimah read the newspaper and told me about one job in Riyadh’s multinational company.
Within few days I got called for interviews. Fortunately, I got a job in Riyadh’s one known firm. I was so excited about my job and told my parents about the good news. I worked day & night and sent money to my parents in Pakistan. I use to talk with my Child's off and on that give me inner peace and relief by taking off hardship distress.
Life goes on. I spent 3 years in Riyadh on this journey I switched from one career level to another. Alhamdulilah I had earned a lot to support my parent to offer Hajj. So in 2009 I sent visa for my parents and child’s. That was a memorable day of my life. I see my parents and child’s after years. Finding jobs in Riyadh was not that easy, but once you tried, Allah helps you because: There is nothing that Allah can’t do!
