Default Dubai... on a scale from 1 to 10?

On a scale from 1 to 10. How difficult is it to get a job in Dubai. I am getting a lot of contrasting views from this forum?

being honest with you I think you would find it difficult to get a job in that field that will enable to you afford to stay here. Rents etc are very high. Plus you have no Middle East experience at all which won't help on this occasion.
