Re: I am a doctor moving to Riyadh

Re: 21 YO Looking to work abroad any help please?!

Agree with the previous two comments. In Saudi , construction / contracting is pretty much dominated by those from Eastern and Arab countries especially when it comes to land surveying. Salaries are...

Re: Dubai economy?

Yes, definitely agree about the women, and now I think the Ministry is clamping down on jobs ads that want 'males only' and that type of nonsense. Should be more and more women entering the workplace...

Re: Car advice please

I'd agree with ariskar - if you're doing mainly tarmac and commuting on your own, then get a cross-over type vehicle, something like a Ford Explorer or Grand Cherokee. The new Chevvy Blazer looks...

Re: Work in Saudi or Gulf Region

Going back to the OP - I don't know Sara Compound, but did live briefly on Salwa - it's Riyadh counterpart. I believe they are pretty much identical - but Sara is bigger. Which will mean it's a very...

Ah yes, thank the Lord I don't have to work with 'Project Managers' these days. Complete set of delinquents. Almost as bad as Internal Auditors.
