Default Questions on moving to Dubai

Hi, just found this website on google. Great site. I have relatives living in Dubai, and recently visited them, and absolutelt loved Dubai. I would like to be able to work in Dubai and move there as soon as I can.

Questions I have are as follows:
1. Does one need to be well educated to get a decent job (I have two degrees- am I making a good start) or does relevant experience count more?
2. What are the growth areas in the Dubai labour market?
3. Does one need to be physically based in Dubai to get a job, or can this be done via the internet while I work in the UK?
4. How hard is it to get a job in Dubai?
5. Is it worth it?

Thanks

1. Yes. 2 degrees is abfab, but experience also is required. A blend of both would be great

2. Construction, Construction and Construction

3. Na you can get one from the UK, I did (well i had to come for interviews)

4. Simple. I came for a week and set myswelf up with 5 interviews. Got offered 3 jobs, took 1 (obviously)

5. Absolutely, and if it doesnt work out for you, go back. No regrets

Good luck

Hello Geordie Armani,
