Mohammad, 27 years old; from Damascus, Syria; Business Administration student at Amman Arab University; refugee in Jordan since 2012.
“Since we arrived in 2012, I’ve been working as an accountant in a gas station here in Jordan. I work 16 hours a day, every other day. Yet I still manage to have excellent grades. I am looking for a different job with less hours. That way I will be able to study more and reduce the overall duration of my studies. But the job market is tough for Syrians here. We do not necessarily get promoted despite our qualifications and skills.”
