Has anyone replied to some ads from this site posted by an "Imran_Mureed"? One is for Princess Noura in KSA, the other for Bahrain. Both ads are very long and detailed. Possibly, the response was overwhelming, or maybe it was a case of someone not clearing out their inbox?

In any case, very annoyed as they requested numerous attachments (documents) that were tedious to attach. Tried sending a trial email without them and it failed again.

Well, I see this recruiter also provides an optional hotmail address in addition to his "007" gmail address. So professional. Rolling Eyes If it's this much a hassle to apply, it's likely a sign of what to expect if you end up working for them or any of their clients.

Silly me, I followed instructions and replied to the hotmail address in the body of the ad. After posting, I reread the ad and saw the 007 gmail address at top.

Very interested to see if I get a reply, as someone else has pointed out the absurdity of the whole ad: "...male and female instructors for Princess Noura..." in KSA? I don't think SO!

Two things struck me... PNU & China?? (which is likely where the male teachers would be sent)

But I'm wondering about "native males" ... native of where?

Yes, of course I know what they mean, but this was obviously NOT written by a "native speaker" of English. Laughing

I think that if you must go with one of these recruiters/contractors, stick with the ones that have a track record of some sort.
