    Settled in, now what?
    OK so I have sorted out the house and figured conventient routes to get around. Now I need to find a job. How do people look for jobs in the UAE anyway?? Is it just the Appointments section of Gulf Times? I have seen a multitude of recruitment companies' ads - are these any good? Anybody had some luck with the online ones?

    It's too hot to put too much effort into this right now...

      Check out recruitment agencies in Dubai, there's bayt.com, monstergulf.com. Also, check the appointment section of Gulf News, or just go to their website, gulfnews.com, sorry, can't think of anything else right now ...

      Good luck!

      Whatever you do, you should NEVER pay money to any of these recruitment firms - it's illegal for them to charge jobseekers. They can only legally charge companies to look for staff for them.

      I second NZM...don't pay any company to help you find work. I think the best jobs in Dubai are the ones you get by knowing someone...what field do you work in again, QC?

      I would love to work with horses, but getting a job that has to do with horses AND pays me what I want to be paid is impossible, because I am not qualified/experienced enough to run a horse farm, lol.

      So I am looking for a job in the area of my expertise - HR in oil and gas :)

      Wow, I like how life is so uncomplicated for you. You settle in first and then go out on a job hunt!

      For us lowly creatures, it works the exact opposite. Sigh...

      I know!! I am so spoiled. Well, looks like being married does have its advantages after all...

      Did you ever visit the farms in Qatar? They got some of the greatest horses in the world! :)

      Christina,

      For a girl who sat next to me at one of the horse shows you seem to be very forgetful :P We met in Doha, remember?? I guess since you know me through my (deleted) VT page, you didn't realize that I am the same person!

      :^)
