Hello guys, am a new member on this platform how ever i have read some posts and found it more meaningful in my cause.especially in pursuit for a job.
This will be the second time am travelling to Qatar.
I was previously working at Qatar Duty Free shopping floor under a contracted company but had to exit and take up a new challenge in sierra Leone. As logistics officer with a Bauxite mining company.
I have subjected my decission to scrutiny and i feel my heart is in Qatar. I have a University degree in Purchasing and supplies mgt. With 9 years progressive experience. How ever i don't know where to begin from upon arriving because from what i realised is that employment priority is given to those already in Qatar and i would like to seize this chance. I welcome and appreciate your advice.
Kind regards
