Default HOW TO GET A JOB IN DUBAI?

Hey guys,

I am an Australian currently working in the US and I was curious on how one would go about getting a job in Dubai. I think it'd be an awesome experience and I wouldn't necessarily be in it for the money alone (although I'd like to be comfortable).

Does anyone have advice on how I could go about starting? My current employer does not have offices in the Middle East and so I would have to search on my own.

Any tips/help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers!

That wasn't a cheeky way to spam as it?

No mate, I am not spamming - just wanting to work in the Middle East!

Forgive my ignorance, but where is this ME Wiki place?

In the accounting field, but I would love to get into Finance (investing banking, private equity). I currently work as an internal auditor. Got a few places you think I should send my resume to?

I found Hays in Dubai to be a waste of time!

I have many more - but they're saved under 'favourites' on my DT in office
