Being a married working woman…

I remember my very first job interview, I didn’t even have my Grad degree in my hands yet and I was called for an interview. This was 7 years ago and I can’t remember how and at what point did I apply for that job. I was 3 years into my marriage at that time, studying, living in a hostel while being married to a guy who lived in a city far away!

Coming back to the interview,  which was in another city to that of my university but close by, the firm’s big name itself was a big thing for me. So after answering some technical questions pertaining to my field of study, the Production manager gave a go ahead to the HR manager to hire me. At this point I told the Manager that I am from another city and I will have to shift to this city, so should I go ahead with the shifting process. He  gave me a green signal. As I came to the HR area where the manager took my personal details, he came to know that I am married.  So I saw the mood shift. I was then made aware that they do not hire fresher who are married. But since the manager has given a go ahead , we will look into your case.

The sense of accomplishment and pride was intense as I was among the few who landed a job without even getting a degree in their hands. And then I was so naive that I didn’t even bother to wait for the offer letter and made my husband to move because …. well I was stupid. And then came the bomb. The HR manager stopped replying to me, stopped receiving my calls. When we had all moved and shifted to this new city, it turned out I didn’t even have a job. why? Because I was married. For some people this is a distraction, for them it is the indication that the person will not be able to give his 100%.

Why? why should it be a weakness?

For me its my strength . It is about feeling stable, responsible and more content in your personal life. Which I am sure the single ladies can also feel the same way but being married shouldn’t be seen as your weakness. Yes I am inflexible about staying late in office because I have a family to attend to, but staying late doesn’t mean you are doing extra work. It just shows you are unable to work efficiently to finish your stuff within  the work hours.

Have you ever come across such situation where you had to regret being married? ha ha No I didn’t mean to say that what I wanted to ask was has there been a situation where a job was declined to you because you were married?

Too soon to move?

Hi ya all,

It’s Summer time in Dubai and it is so damn hot outside. We don’t go out anywhere, it almost feels impossible to breathe, so high humidity and high temperatures. I swear a saw a video of people making an egg fry on the road with at least 48 degrees outside.

Any who, so its only been hardly 6 months in our new apartment, and we are already thinking of the areas we would like to move to next year. I mean seriously!!! why? this current apartment , trust me is very good in every way ( ok the kitchen is too small, but still! ) . Our building is almost out of the city, very secluded place with only a few official building and the best thing is a metro station near by and the direct access to Sheikh Zayed road.  Then the inside of the apartment is like a dream come true with a huge terrace roof , stairs and 2 rooms . I mean its like a pent house. So me and hubby ( I recently got married as well, didn’t I tell ya? my bad) we both are earning like a common middle class people but you look at our apartment it makes us feel like millionaires!!

So having a millionaire feel apartment and salary like peanuts , we have exhausted ourselves in just 6 months and now we are ready to move. There are so many things to consider though before we move. The new one close enough to the office? the area of the apartment, the balcony? the kitchen size, number of cabinets , bathroom size. etc etc and the list goes on! and then you have to book what you see immediately because only God knows why these people in Dubai can’t hold the property for even a month for somebody!

Are you thinking of  moving to Dubai . You must consider this.

Have you been through this already ? share your thoughts .
