The Waiting Game

Exactly one week ago today, I had my first Skype interview for a teaching position in Abu Dhabi.  Since then, I've continuously checked my email for updates.  The first email I received came two days after my interview.  When I saw that I received an email, I didn't know what to think.  I almost didn't want to read it because I didn't want to be disappointed.  Well, I'm glad I did read it because it detailed what the next few steps would be.  The email requested that I send the following information:
  • Colored Passport Copy
  • Copy of attested degree
  • Copy of transcripts of records
  • Point of hire (nearest International Airport)
  • Marital Status (no. of children and age – if applicable)
All but one of the requested items I had on hand, and was able to send them right away. Because I read so many blogs, I knew which direction to take when it came down to authentication - ProEx!  I immediately contacted ProEx and requested a quote for their services.  The quote was pricey but I needed these documents right away.  I sent the documents (college degrees) off on Tuesday and they were received the following day.  I was told the turn around would be about 14 days.  I informed my potential employer of the matter, so that they know the requested information will soon come.  The second email came a few hours later requesting two professional references.  Again, I responded right away and sent the required information.  So, here I sit anxiously awaiting to hear some news.  It'll probably be another two weeks before I hear anything.  In the meantime, I'll continue to think positive, pray, and read more on Abu Dhabi.

Until Next time!
