Default Howdy!!

Well not new to Dubai, But new to the forum. Been here for a year and sadly my employer didn't renew my contract. Nor did i want them to if am being honest. I'm currently job hunting and have been for over a month. I'm looking for some advice and tips from people that have been in the similar position. I have 1 job offer but as you know nothing happens quickly here and as much as i try to hustle things along the quicker it seems to slow. Any advice tips or leads would be gratefully appreciated i really don't want to go back to UK. The Job market there isn't any better and all i will do is pine(sp) to get back here.

Thanks Chris

Hi and welcome to BE, what line of work are you in? Hope it gets sorted quickly, as you say the prospects at home are no better.

I came out here to Dj a cpl years back. More recently have been looking for a career change. Thought i had secured 1 in Bahrain for the Oil and Gas Industry. Sadly it fell through, And due to chasing that i didnt persue a new venue to Dj in. Sadly Dj'in out here freelance isn't as easy as back home. Just hope i can change careers as going back to 6days of Dj'in the same venue just doesn't inspire me at all

There is work available for experienced DJs. Contact these people.

I'm more confused as to how you go from playing records (or an iPod these days) to working in oil & gas.

Wasn't always just a daft Jockey!! I do have a brain in my head. It's not what you do it's what you can do. And sorry but i have never and will never own an ipod! Certainly wouldn't use 1 to perform with.

Thanks for the lead

Chris

I live in Tecom, however I don't really go clubbing here, I am in fact a sad bastard that lives my life through forums!

I doubt that very much!! Well if you live in Tecom then you have most likely been in my old venue.

These two sentences seem rather contradictory in nature. Are you sad or happy?
