    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Great Eastern Life Assurance (Şabāḩ (Iraq)).

    It was a good experience for a fresh graduate student to feel the interview in the real world, to try their best to fight and get for the job. It took a quite long time during the interview and i felt bored in the middle of the interview, but it would be good in another way as the interviewer explained vividly about every single details about the job and how is the working environment in the company.
