Hello,

My husband moves out to Dubai next week, I'm hoping to follow on over the next few months. I have, however, come across a potential employment issue; I don't hold a degree.

What I do have is 15 years marketing expereince, a senior marketing post at a well-known Japanese corp, and two marketing diplomas that are usually taken at post-gradutate level. But no university degree...

I recognise that this might sound really odd to anybody under 40, but when I left school - back in the dark ages, you still could hope for a career without a university education. Honestly!!

I know that the job market in Dubai is very depressed at the moment, but I'd hate to be out of the running for any potential opportunites before I'd even started! :(

Any advice would be hugely appreciated.

Many thanks for your prompt replies, most reassuing!

My concern has come about because my husband had to have his degree attested for his work permit. When looking up how to go about this, I came across information stating that to hold a managerial postion in Dubai, you must have a degree.

I guess I will just have my professional qualifications attested and hope that satisfies the powers that be
