INTERVIEW: Overcoming Career Setbacks with TrueProfile.io
<p>Ruba Elsayed has worked as a General Dentist for the past three years, during which time she has also practised her profession in the war-torn country of Sudan. Ruba wanted to secure a new opportunity in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia &#8211; a country she was born and raised in &#8211; and so endeavoured to do so by first applying for her PSV report from TrueProfile.io.</p> <h2>TrueProfile.io member in the spotlight</h2> <p>My name is Ruba Mohamed and I’m a general dentist. My favourite things to do in my spare time include drawing, cooking, and watching American TV series. I think the last one falls into my guilty pleasure more than a hobby!<br><br>Back in college, I was – without fully realizing it at the time – the ultimate nerd. All I cared about is getting my grades up, leaving great impressions on my teachers, and looking good in front of my clinical examiners. I hate to admit this but I used to LOVE exams.</p> <p>After graduating, I became more of a knowledge enthusiast than a nerd. I found out there’s much more to know about life beyond dentistry and generally, that made life easier for me to tackle in its different aspects.</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="980" height="552" src="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/IMG-20190806-WA0014-1.jpg" alt="From UTV to Verified" class="wp-image-10355" title="From UTV to Verified" srcset="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/IMG-20190806-WA0014-1.jpg 980w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/IMG-20190806-WA0014-1-300x169.jpg 300w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/IMG-20190806-WA0014-1-768x433.jpg 768w" sizes="(max-width: 980px) 100vw, 980px" /><figcaption>Ms. Elsayed inside her clinic.</figcaption></figure> <h2>Which country/countries do you intend to work in and why?</h2> <p>I recently relocated in order to work in Saudi Arabia. My entire family resides in Saudi Arabia. I was born and raised there so it was the first country I thought of working in. In the future, I would love to work in a lot of countries for different reasons. To name a few: I would love to work in India and Egypt because both these countries have a large population. That certainly would add to my clinical expertise. Also at some point in my life, I hope to work in the USA. Maybe in a research facility in the USA which is a country that appreciates science and knowledge.</p> <h2>How did getting a TrueProof help you out with your job application?</h2> <div class="wp-block-image"><figure class="alignleft size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="562" height="560" src="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/IMG-20190807-WA0001-1.jpg" alt="From UTV to Verified" class="wp-image-10357" title="From UTV to Verified" srcset="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/IMG-20190807-WA0001-1.jpg 562w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/IMG-20190807-WA0001-1-300x300.jpg 300w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/IMG-20190807-WA0001-1-150x150.jpg 150w" sizes="(max-width: 562px) 100vw, 562px" /><figcaption>Ms. Elsayed in her toga.</figcaption></figure></div> <p>Getting my documents verified was one crucial step in ensuring that I am eligible for practising general dentistry. The SCFHS has made it a point that document verification is a necessity. It aims to ensure safe practice for citizens and employers. Moreover, the fact that TrueProfile.io is a source of verification that is impartial and reliable affirms that my verification process is absolutely authentic.</p> <p>Personally, for me the hindsight was, I got the <a href="https://www.trueprofile.io/trueproof" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">TrueProofs</a> and all these benefits that came with it through an application process that was relatively effortless, less time consuming as I was not required to travel or even go anywhere locally. </p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>How easy was it for you to process your DataFlow (PSV) report?</h2> <p>It was <a href="https://blog.trueprofile.io/get-dataflow-four-easy-steps-2/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">very easy for me to process the DataFlow report</a>. It had all the important information in a well-arranged manner.</p> <h2>What is the most beneficial part of having your report stored on TrueProfile.io?</h2> <p>In my opinion, the most beneficial part of having my report stored on TrueProfile.io is that it’s <a href="https://www.trueprofile.io/blockchain" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">never lost</a>. I can always go back to it when I need it and readily use it. Also, I wouldn’t worry about re-verifying a document or losing a report because the website is secured.</p> <p>The TrueProfile.io team made my experience easier, calming, and most importantly a happy one.</p> <p>Initially, I had an issue with the verification of my employment.<br>When I started my verification process, Sudan was in a war situation in which civil disobedience was persistent, internet service was blocked and life was put on hold. As a result of that, my reports verification results were ‘<a href="https://blog.trueprofile.io/unable-verify-negative-dataflow-reports/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Unable to Verify</a>’. Thankfully <a href="https://blog.trueprofile.io/what-can-i-do-if-background-check-comes-back-negative/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">I had the choice to appeal</a> and I did. The appeal request results were ‘Verified’.</p> <h2>Would you recommend TrueProfile.io to your friends?</h2> <p>I would <strong>absolutely recommend TrueProfile.io to my friends and colleagues</strong>. In my recent past, I would email my questions to different organizations and they would respond late. I was always patient because I had to be and with the TrueProfile.io experience, I got to appreciate the sense of fast replies.</p> <p>Not only that, I am sincerely thankful to those in charge of writing emails. I found those emails to be helpful and kind especially because it was my first time in verifying documents. I was nervous, I made mistakes and the war in Sudan was making me a nervous wreck.<br><br>All in all, the TrueProfile.io team made my experience easier, calming and most importantly a happy one.</p> <p><strong>Want to join Ruba and the rest of the TrueProfile.io community on their successful career journeys? <a href="https://www.trueprofile.io/member" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Sign up</a> to TrueProfile.io today! </strong></p>
