Not yet Girls,Not yet !

We always complain about our situation as Females in Saudi Arabia.

Let's face it, most of the girls are unqualified and the real problem is that they even don't try to improve their skills.

If we really want to be held in high positions, if we are really seeking for some fair chances in the career life, we should follow up with the improvements and be good enough to improve the miserable situation here in "Our Dear Country".

Read "Cheerleaders or Applicants" post ?!

But you know girls I have received good news, my uncle told me that in an Organization he's working for, about 50% of the employees in the IT department are females!
Wow, that’s a satisfying percentage.

But yet, I'm dreaming of the day we "conquer" the whole IT departments all over the country ;)

Cheerleaders or Applicants ?!

In some place I'm working in this summer, unemployed girls came in suddenly!
Faces with full make up + Hairstyles (intense undoes + long left hair) + High Heels … Not to mention the sparkling "Abaya " !i

Those girls were coming to make interviews! (Note: believe it or not, it's not a salon it's a Respectful Organization)!

I felt curious to know how an interview would go with such girls, so I asked one of the Human Resources if I could "observe" with one of the interviewers. And I've got the permission. "don't ask what benefits an IT student like me would get from doing this, it's just curiosity! "

I went into the room, the interviewer looked pail in front of the applicant. The girl was putting on a red lipstick, horrible red blusher and GOLDEN eye shadow; In fact everything was golden and sparkling. I couldn't help not giggling, that was so funny," but I stopped 'cause I felt that I distracted the interviewer that she wanted to laugh too!

Appearance was nothing after she started to talk! She's uncultured, has no background about anything, don't know English at all, even her Arabic was so informal, and of course no computer skills!

After being curios I felt sick.

When the interview was dismissed the interviewer told me not to be surprised many applicants looked that way, and of course they don't accept them.

"Why did she apply to the job anyway?" (Shain Wi Gwat 3ain)


When a Contact status is away !

What suppose that to mean?!

Well there are 3 possibilities I gained them form observation and experience.
1-I have friends that always "ALWAYS" put their sign away although they are setting right behind the screen and have nothing to do…but they just like to do the first steps (you know like saying the "Hi!" first and stupid stuff like that). I guess this is a habit and there are no ulterior motives.

2-On the other side there is some people who immediately sign in as "Away" as soon as they see unwanted contact or something like that…. They are Not "away"…but they do that to keep away the annoying persons.

3-Of course there are few people (I'm one of them ) who put there status away when they are really away from their PCs.
The same possibilities go with all other kinds of status, not to mention "appear of line"!

The bottom line is , I think there are many people who misuse the "status" feature!

If you are sick of someone or not in the mood for chatting with her, Just Block Her. Don't change your status just only for one contact that you don't want.

Dear contacts I rely on your status, so please be honest, or simply if you can resist… Block me (Don't you dare to do such a thing :p )
