‘Wasta’ seems to be a recurring term in almost every discussion about job hunting and recruitment. In fact, 62% of our followers say that they have been affected by Wasta at some point in their careers. So, considering that this is an issue that many Bahrainis face, we decided to address it in our own way.

We gathered 3 of our friends who have been through and are going through the job hunting process and asked them what they think of Wasta and specifically their opinions on the difference between Wasta and Networking.
