Hi everyone,

Sorry for the rather strange subject, but I couldn't think of another way to put it. Anyway, I'm a 25 year old guy looking to live and work in the UAE, preferably Dubai or Abu Dhabi. I've got a BSc in IT and a PhD in Engineering, although the PhD was still mainly IT. Unlike most, I gained good experience throughout my PhD working with internationally known companies so I do have some experience too.

I'm looking for advice on how to go about getting a job in the IT sector, and what to look for in the packages. How much should I expect to get to maintain a good standard of living?

Thanks in advance,
Paul

16 views and no reply! :( hehe

Just thought I'd drop a little more information anyway. I'm over in Dubai at the moment to see how I find it, and so far its great. I'm hoping to at least leave my CV with employment agencies before I head back to the UK at the end of the month. Does anyone here work in Internet City, do they have a central location for posting vacancies?

Thanks,
Paul

Paul,

I work for a financial software company (eFront) - we are currently looking to build our consultancy team in Dubai, and would be interested in receiving your CV.
Please forward to jobs-me AT efront DOT com, and also if you could say how long you will be in Dubai for?

Regards,
Oliver
