However before youleap and sign a contract be sure its the job you want as in the uae there is a cunning law that aims to stop certain ppl from job hopping , if you resign you can potentially recieve 6 months, max two years ban on working in the uae and also banned from entering the country for 6 months.
cheers... hmm been very busy and getting things sorted... am a very fussy bastard re work.... good to know about the law as well... i sent u a mail by the way about 5 minutes ago..

Anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get the agencies and others to be more proactive with my cv - without me having to be in Dubai until needed ?
hey... most of my stuff has beensorted out from the UK and am now out in Dubai tomorrow to do the meets and make the phone calls that people have said to do when I am in town.

just hammer away and do not stop.

Welcome to the forum Globtrotter. Its nice to c that so many people are giving up their lives to come and settle in this sometimes crazy society that is Dubai.

Sorry to say, but I think that you have done the best you can by writing in to all the major recruitment agencies in Dubai. There isnt much that you can do from here that you cant do from elsewhere. I guess you have to play the waiting game. Maybe you could try to contact the HR departments of companies directly? Tell me what line of work you are in and perhaps I could suggest a few companies and get their contact info for you.

You might even try the classifieds in local news papers:
www.gulfnews.com
www.khaleejtimes.com

Hope I have been of assistance. Welcome to the forum again!


And a special note to Joseph.Creative....Have a safe flight and I hope you enjoy the very warm welcome you will receive courtesy of our 38 degree weather. lol. Enjoy your stay and do let us know if there is anything you need. We are here to help.
