Many believe that the grass is definitely greener at the other side of the fence. Well, maybe it
really is if you go to Dubai where it is the jobs or the employment that will
run after you. There are a lot of opportunities waiting for you in this emirate.
People from all types of field and from all parts of the world are welcome to
apply here at this wonderful emirate of Dubai. You may have jobs related to the
tourism industry, oil industry, finance, publishing, engineering, training, and
different types of employment that will help you succeed in your chosen career.
One of the most prevalent Dubai jobs are related to the ever demanding world of Information Technology. Graduates of computer-related courses such as Information Technology, Computer Science, Computer Programming, Computer Engineering and alike can choose from different big time companies that need their services. These companies are usually looking for graduates who specialize in different IT languages such as Oracle, Visual Basic, C++, SQL, and PHP. Aside from the very excellent salary, Dubai companies also give these programmers and web developers several benefits including housing, food allowance and more while they are still working for that particular company. Moreover, foreign workers who have been in their jobs for quite a long time may also bring their family with them and live in the same house provided by the company. Either the company pays for the air fare or the family members are the ones who must pay for it.
Engineers and those who are expert in the construction industry have also a lot jobs and employment opportunities. This is because Dubai is now one of the many places that develops more than hundreds of real estate properties every year. Hotels, resorts, and high-rise buildings with unique architectural designs as well as residential investments are the common projects that are currently being developed in the emirate of Dubai. Some of the needed applicants in Dubai are Structural Engineers, Electrical Engineers, and Civil Engineers. Also, those who are experts in piping, mechanic maintenance and electrical circuits are invited to apply and work for these companies. Some of the benefits include car and housing provision, food and transportation allowance, medical insurance, education for their children who lives with them in Dubai, and of course, air fare if they wish to go back to their local country.
Although most of the jobs mentioned above require professionals and people having a lot of experience in the field, there are also jobs for semi-skilled and semi-professional workers as well. And although Dubai allows foreign workers to work in their territory, most of these workers are only temporary or contractual. Some were not allowed to go back to their own country for at least 3 years or so. Afterwards, if they wish to go back to Dubai again, they must have their contract renewed in order to fly back to the emirate and work. Many still do so because the government of Dubai does not deduct personal taxes. Therefore, their net income is usually higher than the income they could get from their local countries.
The working hours in Dubai companies may vary from forty to forty-eight hours, which of course depends on the policy of the company. The office hour for all type of jobs starts either 8:30 or 9 in the morning. On the other hand, the shift usually ends at 5:30 in the afternoon or 6 in the evening. For the companies that only requires five working days every week, usually give their employees a break during Saturdays. Friday is a weekly holiday since this is considered as a rest day for Muslims.
