Opportunities for women in Saudi Arabia

Posted on Jul 24, 2008 3:13 PM by
Over the last couple of decades, the social attitudes towards women have tremendously changed in the Kingdom. Women are given the respect they deserve and mixed-gender workplaces have become more common especially in industries such as banking and medicine. This post is mainly for the female expatriates who intend to work in Saudi Arabia and have no clue where to begin.

Gear up your confidence and start with a positive attitude, cribbing about the restrictions you have to face in Saudi Arabia is not going to get you anywhere. Create your résumé’s, and get ready to start applying! Check out the category links below. In these pages you will find the necessary contact details of institutions prevailing under the respective category. Take your time and go through each of the contact information provided. If you plan to email these contacts, please try to keep your message brief and to the point.
  1. Schools, Riyadh
  2. Schools, Dammam
  3. Schools, Al Khobar
  4. Schools, Jeddah
  5. Colleges & Universities, Saudi Arabia
  6. Banks, Saudi Arabia
Talk to people around you. Sometimes, that's all it takes. Your network of friends, relatives, neighbors, and acquaintances is a valuable job search resource.
I've come across a lot of women with creative skills in Handicrafts, Cookery, Fashion Designing etc. These active ladies organize events and set up their own stalls to promote their sales. The Key to their success is networking! If you have something to sell please check the Events page of this website. Most of the event organizers help put up a stall for a nominal registration fee.

Various opportunities for females are published at Glowork which is a leading career gateway for women in Saudi Arabia and if you are interested in volunteering opportunities, check out the Women’s Skills Bureau(WSB). WSB is a non-profit organization that strives to encourage and support expatriate spouses to share their skills and expertise, by providing access to flexible opportunities.

The American Community of Riyadh is another non-profit organization that exists to enrich the lives of the American and the broader expatriate community in Riyadh. ACR provides various opportunities for networking and the development of special interest groups.
