I'm a Technical Secretary in major construction company
Dunno nothing about secretarial works, but they were looking for a local that knows English to take care of things here since most of the engineers here dunno Arabic, plus correspondences with external sources are almost always in English. Not so many locals know English around here. My knowledge in computers helped too. Basically it was the English that got me this job. At least now they have someone to answer phones calls from the west
I wanted to be an English teacher, but teaching is a stressful job. I had my practical student teaching course and it was a pain in the neck. I mean come on, teaching English here? It's like teaching cows how to fly heh.
