Thumbs up Dubai and Money FAQs?!?

I have a Master degree in International Business and want to move to Dubai. I have the following questions:

1) Naturally, I would like to negotiate the best salary
possible...is it better to accomplish this from abroad or from
within Dubai?

2) I am in sales/business development...what are some of the
highest paying companies and industries in Dubai within this
field with the biggest total compensation packages?

Any other advice and suggestions about Dubai would be greatly
appreciated.

Thank you for your assistance.

I agree with alli. You can get quite a good package from abroad. I got a job based on a phone interview. I did all my negotiations over the phone and through emails and I am quite happy with the package that I have been offered. Saying that, it might also be worthwhile to go out to Dubai and just have a look at the place and what is on offer.

In regards to companies, again, alli is right. I found the recruitment agencies I dealt with through google. It's just the case of doing a search of the job title you are after and the location and then contacting the companies that come up in the search results. Ultimately, you know better what your goals are and what you are after but once you are in contact with the relevent recruitment agencies for your field, they will be able to guide you and give you a much better insight of your field in Dubai and more importantly, give you a realistic view of the salary you can expect to earn. Your basic salary will not be a lot higher than it is in the UK; it is the added extras such as accommdation and transport allowances that pushes up the value of your package.

From personal experience as well, I can say that in any field that you work in, your experience will speak a lot louder than your qualifications. There are a lot of us coming out to Dubai with Msc in our back pockets. What will set you apart from the rest and earn you the high salary you are after is your experience, ability, skills and the way you come across during an interview.

Good luck

Unfortunately, Mazz is right as regards to qualifiactions.

So many people qualified to degree level and above here. That's why the employers can afford to be choosy.

Make sure your CV says what it needs to say about you. The academic qualifications are no less than many companies will be looking for, especially for more senior postions.
