Maybe no one has an answer for you? And what help do you require? You'll need to be more specific. It's not as if someone is going to hand you a job on a plate.

Their answers aren't helpful, but neither are they nasty.

You just asked for help, which is very vague. What type of restaurant? Are we talking fast food or fine dining? Do you have much experience? Why do you want to move to Dubai.

I'm afraid ethnicity does matter here as the UAE is not exactly what you'd call an equal rights country. Your background is likely to have a bearing on what you can earn. One of the first questions you'll be asked is what is your nationality. You state your location as Dublin, but have an Egyptian flag.

Clearly you are not applying to the right websites, or there are no positions available, or they are not interested in what you are offering. Have you done anything apart from mailing a few websites?

Hey... Thanks once again... I dont know why it is showin an Egyptian flag next to my profile ... Anyway ... I have worked for high profile casual dining Italian restaurant as a manager .almost 10 years of experience in the hospitality industry and 5 years in a managerial position . I'm from Ireland though my ethnicity is Indian
I have registered myself with various sites like bayt.com and catererglobal.com
I applied for almost 50 different jobs in Dubai but didn't hear anything back from anyone
So I don't know what to do next .
I want to relocate and Dubai was my first choice
