Hi all

Just to complicate matters I today received an invite to an interview for a position in Oman that is paying a lot more than these Saudies. But that interview is in June and the guys at Damaam will want an answer before that, any advice anybody can give?

Regards

Muhammad

Dear usool,
Ah, the age-old - Do I take the bird in the hand or try for the two in the bush - dilemma.
Well, string Dammam along as far as you can. But, if push comes to shove, from what you've posted so far, I'd say take a chance on the Omani job.
However, much depends on your "personal situation" - i.e. just how hard up you are at present.
Regards,
John

June isn't all that far away. Come up with some time-consuming questions to fire at the people in Dammam; the more complicated, the better. Ask them questions they can't understand. Smile

As John said, these situations are always difficult, and there is no general answer anyone can give. Much depends on how attracted you are by theDamman job, and how good you think your chances are of getting the Oman job - only you (maybe not even you!) can judge.

Remeber than processing a Saudi visa is not done overnight - I'm sure the same is true for Oman. so, you will have to make up your mind at least 2 months before depatrture. Maybe someother posters can correct me if I'm wrong.
