Smile Getting a job in Middle East

Hello everyone,

I am a new user here and I was enjoying reading the threads on this forum. I am not British, I am a Canadian. I was wondering what is the best way to get an offer in say Abu Dhabi or Dubai from Canada? I am currently waiting for the winter Olympics here in Vancouver too wrap up as I am one of the Systems Architects and also a technical operations manager for one of the important venues. I am thinking of going to the gulf region but I really don't know how to apply or find a good package. I have about 15 years of experience in technology mostly IT and complex networks.

I appreciate any info I can get.

Thanks,
Mark.

It's only been a day and it's the weekend over there, give 'em a chance...but checking out the wiki and past threads would be a good start.

Welcome to BE though

'bout the same as it was 2 weeks ago.

Know that doesn't help but I hate to see you being ignored again.

I've not looked in a few months, but a lot of the work now seems to be KSA, Qatar, Bahrain and Oman (at least for my company). Still some jobs in UAE, but nowhere near as many as there used to be.

Try googling Indigo Dubai, they may be able to help.

Good luck!
