Wives in Dubai - where, who, what to do?
Hi ladies & anyone else with insights on this,
My husband's just got a job posting in Dubai (Sharjah) so we're coming to check it out for 2 weeks, some time soon.
1) Can you please advise if there is a women's group/ womens volunteer assoc, expats montly meetings, etc???? I would like to make as many of these meetings as possible in the two weeks we are there so that I can begin to understand what I will do with my time, if I can't find a job.
2) Reputable recruitment co's. My background is in sales & mgmt (packaged goods) & mgmt in corporate and vacation travel. I've read about how the financial crisis has hit Dubai as hard as the US/Canada but if anyone has a recommendation for a good recruitment firm, I'd appreciate it.
3) Volunteering/ art classes/yoga/ etc. Is there a good community/offering for this type of thing ?
I'd appreciate any info/web site suggestions very much. We've been on a couple assignments in the past and the first few months can be an awfully lonely time without friends, a job, activities.
Thanks in advance.
