Where are you all?

Post Posted: Fri Apr 09, 2010 12:56 am

The forum used to be regularly used by those about to arrive in Egypt; those who have just arrived and those who have been here a while, asking questions, giving advice etc., I feel that the forum has changed and there is less of the above people asking or advising. I rather miss the old days . I am just wondering if there is a change going on. Are there fewer incomers? Is there less to chat about? Just miss the old days. Is it just me?

I think it's always had ebbs and flows in the over 3 years I've been on here (I was just PBB before but forgot the email ad and passwords Very Happy )

I wonder if the global economic crisis is having an impact in terms of people holding on to their jobs rather than looking to get expat experiences abroad.

Also, not sure how it is affecting the big globals here with recruiting from abroad - a lot of the big companies have battened down the hatches I think.

i still read this site every day.

I do know our local consulting work is getting really busy all of a sudden.
with many request for experts in certain areas of manufacturing and or management across operations.

Good to know you are still around. There just seemed to be fewer newcomers these days enquiring about life in Cairo. I have been told that there has been a big exodus of expats recently. Perhaps no one is coming to replace them, hence the quiet forum.
