One Step Away

Abed Al Aziz


Three years after he graduated from Maharat Pioneers, Abed Al Aziz is one step away from achieving his career goal.
Abed’s first job out of Maharat was as a human resources coordinator, the result of the end-of-program job fair organized by Maharat. Abed soon made the switch to the Holiday Inn Dead Sea Resort, where he continued his HR coordinator duties, before he received another job offer to work in a senior administrative position with a Japanese contractor in Iraq.
“Maharat has really benefited me,” he says. “I remember when they asked, ‘what are you going to be?’ I said to them I am going to be an HR director. Now I am one step away from my goal.”
But now that Abed is closer to achieving his career objective, he’s set his sights on something else: establishing his own business.
Abed’s prior experience with Maharat encouraged him to seek knowledge and information through the program again – this time, the Maharat Entrepreneurship Course.

“Maharat enhanced my skills and gave me the opportunity to go through the job market, as once you’re done with the university your chances to find a job are low. This program gave me the essentials. “
