Mubaraks's Move Essay

1097 words - 4 pages

Every attempt Mubarak had made to move to another country so far, has failed miserably. Besides, he has already made a promise not to return to Sudan until he became a tool of change. However, staying in Jordan without a source of an income for another couple of months will definitely have a devastating impact. So upon finishing reading the letter, Mubarak headed out to the Medical Association, hoping to find a positive development in his membership application status.

“We will not consider you for membership until you show proof that you have signed an employment contract. Moreover, it would be impossible for us to consider aliens when many of our doctors who grew up in this country are still unemployed” the association employee in charge asserted as Mubarak showed up and enquired. Thus recognizing the futility of his efforts Mubarak bade the man goodbye and left. Surprisingly, as he exited the building, another employee raced out and caught up with him on the sidewalk. “Salam, Doctor. I overheard your exchange with that man. Disregard what he told you and listen carefully to what I have to say. Go to one of the royal family members or one of those powerful tribal chieftains and let one of them recommend you; preferably, let them call the president of the association and insist that you get registered” “That is the only way for you. Many doctors from Iraq did just that” “These Palestinians have forgotten what it means to be going through difficulties. They do not want to approve you application because they think that you will take a job from one of their folks.” Mubarak thanked the native Jordanian for his sincere goodwill gesture and left, but then he thought of the strangeness of his advice. What a royal family member or a tribal chieftain had to do with the profession of saving lives?
Ignoring the man’s counsel, Mubarak hailed a cab and went to the Islamic Medical Center. Many times he heard physicians at Jordan University medical center say that the religious hospital was in a terrible need for doctors. So following directions of the receptionist, Mubarak climbed the staircase to the human resource office. Once there a young woman in a full Hijjab answered his greetings almost inaudibly and said how she might help him. When Mubarak enquired about physician recruitment, she assertively said “yes, yes. We are recruiting physicians of all levels for almost every area of expertise” “is prior registration with the medical association a prerequisite for consideration,” said Mubarak anticipating an affirmative answer. “No, Doctor. If we decided to employ you, we would contact the Medical Association to facilitate your registration. The hospital director is directly involved in the whole process. He is prepared to interview physicians at any time even if it required his travel. We have acute shortage of physicians.” without waiting for Mubarak’s response, the lady added, “If you are prepared, we can make arrangement for you to see him today”....
