Default Any last minute advice....

Hi to all,

My husband is heading off on his jollys shortly to Dubai, Qatar & possibly Oman, well he's actually heading off for 'some' interviews for jobs, so that's good and he gets to go without me so I'm sure it will be a bit of a jolly for him.

At this stage we have exhausted linkedin, recruiters (least said about them the better), websites, headhunters, newspapers.... we've done it all and it's a long, long trawl as many of you know.

Since he is going to be out there for a few weeks can anyone think of anything else we can do before he goes or anything he could do whilst out there to get the most out of this trip? I know networking is a big part of it so fortunately he's got a few contacts to meet whilst there.

We've spent so long planning the first part that now we've reached the stage he's actually going over we're not sure if we've done enough!?

Hoping for some interesting input!
