Looking for work in Bahrain asap help!
Hello im looking to move to Bahrain as soon as possible but have found job hunting very difficult with not much coming back for over 2 months now.
Does anybody know of a way I can get more joy or places Should be looking.
I have Bachelors degree in Business Studies and various experiences in retail and sales driven environments.

Any help or advice or potentially a job offer would be great. :)
I am very driven and have a real business brain.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the bored, I hope you might find the answers you're seeking. The oft repeated advice on this bored is:
Network - find people out here who know you and who might help.
Network for fresh people on Linkedin.
Spam your CV on all the job boards (gulftalent, naukri, monstergulf etc)
Network some more
Apply for some roles online
Network some more

Provide some evidence that you are "very driven with a real business brain" anybody can write any old tosh on a CV.

"various experiences in retails and sales driven environments"

Don't mean to be rude, but that sounds suspiciously like you've worked in a shop and a car dealership.

If so, you'll struggle with Flip competition who'll work for peanuts (well, fried pork and noodles).

If not, tell us what you actually did.

Yes electronic shop but I've been supervisor, team leader and business manager.
Im not sure how to go about sorting a good job over in bahrain. I would certainly be able to deliver fantastic sales and really drive a companies sales beyond they're expected limits. But i see your point they would go for a cheaper option.
What to do?
That or I start my own business over there.
