I wrote before on the blog about how I found work as a new expat in Dubai, but this feature for Expatsblog.com made me think a little harder about the process.
Dubai can be an intimidating and down right overwhelming place for many reasons; everyone seems so confident, everything feels so fast-paced and as a newbie expat in Dubai, everything feels very foreign. Landing in a foreign land and jumping straight into a job hunt can blow your mind a little bit, but there was no time for getting used to my surroundings. One weekend and I was straight onto the task in hand; the job hunt.
I searched google, I signed up to loads of recruitment agencies and I spent hours on Linkedin. And after a few weeks of hard searching and dedication, Linkedin came up trumps with a job more perfect than I could ever have imagined.
