Building the newsroom of the future

It has been an eye-opening experience working with KT. Being totally new in the news industry, I would say that I have earned great experience working here so far. I am originally from Singapore and studied Mass Communication in college. That is where I developed an interest in Social Media. My inspiration has been Roxana Saberi, the American journalist. What I had learned in school - though useful - was left outside the door as I was brought into the world of real-time journalism. The day-to-day job is immensely varied. In one day, I might be working on sharing a chain story, experimenting new ways, or be busy with repurposing a story, and packaging it to make it Social Media-friendly. In a space of four months, I had been rebuilt from a regular Social Media personnel, to a sceptical Social Media journalist with an array of new skills to verify and discover news from around the world. - Nur Suhaimi, Social Media Journalist 

Crossing more milestones

Originally from Egypt, I came to the vibrant city of Dubai in August 2017 and have been working with Khaleej Times since then, as a translator. Khaleej Times has a great atmosphere to work in as a group, and I have had incredible experience working here and being part of this lively newsroom. I take great pride in being a part of the

first English-language newspaper of the UAE and to have the opportunity to celebrate 40 years of the newspaper and its legacy. I believe that 40 years is not a lot of time, so I think we will have to wait and see the new milestones the newspaper crosses in the upcoming 40 years. I am sure, we will as always, be at the top in the future as well! - Hesham Ahmed Salah Ahmed, Translator
