Hi.
Has anyone interviewed for the new Algonquin College campus in Kuwait? I was interviewed last year and was made a tentative offer. Since then the opening has been delayed twice, and is now slated for September. When I was notified of the last delay, I was asked if I was still interested in the position for September, 2015. I answered yes, and was told that I would hear in March 2015. I waited until April to contact them, and two emails and two phone calls later I finally managed to make contact with the person I had been dealing with way back in 2014. They are no longer in the position, but (finally) passed on to the person now doing the job that I had been shortlisted, and I am wondering what is happening with my application. Email received back from this person saying that no more hiring decisions are being made until mid June.

I'm still wondering if I have a job for September with Algonquin. Is it even worth bothering about if this is the way they treat you before you even see the offer? Anyone else had a similar, better, or worse experience with this college?

This is very common EFL trend these days in the Gulf and elsewhere......look for another job.....one cannot wait for a job in Q Wait forever especially if one is low on savings....Milton "Most Men Lives Of Quiet Desperation". Shocked Shocked

Sometimes, we wait for these jobs longer than they actually last us one time we're on the ground doing them. I know I'm guilty of that, the waiting around because I'm a courteous guy. But no more. I'll wait very little now, as the employers will rarely give us that kind of courtesy. Give them the back-burner pass, move on, and come back to them later.
