HISTORY  -Part I

I had been here in Saudi Arabia From 1977 to 1996.   Left for good to Pakistan in March 1996.  Very soon I realized that I would have stayed  in Saudi Arabia on lower salary instead of coming back.   I tried my best to coop up with low salary in Pakistan .  After two years I started to contact my old friends and also try to them when they come on Vacation with hop that (i) some one could arrange a Job with Visa (ii) some one buy visa and send to me (iii) some one send me cuttings / information of jobs appearing in news papers in Saudi Arabia .

 

It is true that day by day it is getting difficult to get job for those who are already in Saudi Arabia then how would it be  possible for them to help their friend in PAKISTAN .  Some time it seems difficult for people living in Saudi Arabia to Keep their jobs alive.   At last I came in Saudi Arabia in November 2002 by sending a VISA on payment by one of friend. 

 

HISTORY – Part II

Now I (Sajid Afzal) am in RIYADH , SAUDI ARABIA ,  belongs to PAKISTAN and came here in SAUDIA  for Job Search in First Week of November 2002 ( Ramadan 02, 1424).

 

I started  forwarding  (from Internet Café )

(i) jobs information to a limited circle of  25 friends after receiving Job Information Mail from one of my friend Mr. Meer Ali .  (ii)  job information which  I knew during my job hunt.   Slowly number of recipient of  my mails increased. 

 

As soon as I got job,  I  started sending  Vacancies from Arab New only to a limited circle of 75 to 80 thru

(i) Internet Café  and some time (ii) thru office outlook.  Mostly I was sending mails thru  Internet Café.  Some time I had to spend more than half hour to send mail because of “over quota”  “mail box not available”  messages.    Whenever I was feeling that I am wasting my time daily two or three hours to prepare one mail ,  I got some encouraging mail from some one which booted my courage to continue this difficult task. 

 

HISTORY – PART III

 

  Now we are collecting job vacancies from

·         Arab News Advertisements (English Daily of  Saudi Arabia ) and

·         Arab Times (English daily of Kuwait )

·         www.gulfnews.com  and  www.khaleejtimes ,  (classified sections)  and

·         www.mycareer.msn.com  I have registered my CV with this site and receiving information are forwarding to the members as it is.

 

I could  start  mailing thru  the group from May 04, 2003 (with 84 members)  after learning from Mr. Ahmed Mukhtar (my office colleague )  and  One another Friend ( He don’t want to show  his name ) .   Start using Yahoo Brief Case  from  July 22, 2003  after  guidelines given by Mr. Khurram Mahmood  ravian2kY@yahoo.com

 

Our First mail thru Yahoo group was sent with this SLOGAN

DO FOR ALLAH, ALLAH WILL DO FOR YOU”

This slogan is still carried and it is written on top of our present web site  http://angelfire.com/rnb/jobs_gulf_info 

 

ASSISTANCE

Up to October 20, 2003 I was doing all jobs regarding the group.  Due to heavy load of work I requested  friends to assist me at least in  typing of vacancies from Arab News.  I Got assistance of four members in Riyadh for typing of Arab News Vacancies for Sunday to Wednesday.

 

Mr. Usman Koya started sending the Job alerts from Arab Times and Kuwait Times (English Daily of Kuwait) from Jan 01 2004.  He founded a news group on Feb 18 2004 thekkepuramjobs@yahoogroups.com,  where he started placing Arab Times & Kuwait Times News Papers, and other mails from us  and continued to send Arab Times and Kuwait to us as usual.

 

LIMITATIONS OF OUR WORK

We have some limitations to work

·         We  have to type the newspaper advertisements  (cannot scan the newspaper advertisements)  because (i) many recipients don’t  accept images (ii) we shall have to take permission from  the newspaper authority to produce their advertisement  

·        We cannot accept the CV / BIO DATA of the friends  because it requires a lot of contacts, a team work and also a separate office.  And we don’t want to go up to this extent.

 

What we are doing at present (April 26 2004)

 

A)      Collection of DATA

B)      Circulation to Members

 

COLLECTION OF DATE

·         Typing from Hard copy (News Papers ) :  Daily we are typing the job advertisements for Arab News ( Saudi Arabia ) except Classified Section   and  Arab Time ( Kuwait )

·         Thru Internet:  We are collecting Data from Internet for (i) Khaleej Times on Wednesday and Sunday  (ii) Gulf News on every Thursday (iii) Classified Section for Arab News on every Friday

CIRCULATION TO MEMBERS

Circulation of Data is thru 2 sources ( two Yahoo Groups )

 

FUTURE PLANS

Most of incoming mails contains CV for job seekers and sending job information / alert is not enough.   It is very difficult to help job seekers with such a limited set up.   We have to  advise them to be patient and  keep sending CV to the given addresses. 

 

Now we want to
