Thanks for the advice Face.

I've been in several different industries - mainly focussed on the commercial side of things. I find that khaleej and gulfnews don't really advertise the type of thing I'm looking for - but maybe I should take a closer look.

But you've been around dubai for about 22 years right ? I lived in Dubai about 19 years ago too - things have changed majorly since !!

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.

Thanks for al the info guys. I've decided to go off to Dubai as well for a couple of days next week - as soon as I can get some concrete appointments with people who can help!

Joe - how are you experiencing calling and meeting the right people ? Any tips ?

Btw - If I remember correctly there's a pretty nice bar which i'll think you like on SZR, in the basement of the Rotana - Long's.

I am really pleased by the way you are getting around Dubai joe! Well done. I mean, its not some sort of backward village or anything, but most people dont find it 'user friendly' to start off with.

I really am impressed......u know names of raods, locations of all important hotels and errrr bars! lol

Enjoy urself!

That tip is soooooo handy. Gosh! Wish someone had told me years ago. You got any more life-enhancing advice?
