Graduate looking for good job in Dubai

Postby ed_ynwa » Wed 15 Oct 2008 16:00 GMT

Hi everyone,

My Dad moved to Dubai 6 months ago for his company, Al-Futtaim - Carillion. I've already been over to our apartment in Festival City for 6 weeks and enjoyed the experience.

Now I'm heading over again for at least a month early November with the intention of getting a full time job. I realise this is not going to be easy with intense competition from people from Asia who will accept a much lower wage. I'm 24 with a Business degree from Cardiff Uni. and I'd like to work in marketing or retail ideally.

I was wondering if anyone had any advice, could recommend any good job websites or the best way about finding work once I arrive.

Also if anyone would like to meet up for a few beers in November/December that would be cool...

Thanks in advance for any help.
