Moving on to dubai
Michael Campbell is a 26 year old journalist working in Dubai. Originally from New Zealand he
was recruited straight from college.
He says it was too good an opportunity to miss. "Ì was keen to get out of New Zealand to gain
some international experience and exposure. Ì had previously considered Dubai as an option
because Ì did not know too much about it and what Ì did know sounded quite exotic. So when
the opportunity came up, Ì went for it. Oh yeah and there is no income tax here, that probably
influenced my decision a little¨
Michael firmly believes that working in Dubai will give him a head start in his career. "The
opportunity Dubai offers is like none other. Because it is still a developing economy, in the
middle of a boom, there are not enough people to fill the jobs. !eople with little experience can
come to Dubai and walk straight into a job that would normally require a lot more experience.
That's not saying standards aren't high, they are: it's very cut throat. Ìf you don't perform you'll
soon know about it but Ì think people here are given more of a chance to prove themselves. Ìt
is commonly known in many industries that experience in Dubai is worth double what it is
anywhere else¨ Again like almost everybody else working in Dubai Michael cites the lifestyle
as one of the best things about the place.
So would he recommend Dubai as somewhere to live and work? "Definitely, it's exciting, exotic
and new¨
26 year old Sarah Doran is a structural engineer. She says she fell in love with Dubai while on
secondment and did not want to return home. "The company Ì worked for in Dublin transferred
me out here for a short three month secondment ÷ Ì loved it from the minute Ì arrived and
desperately wanted to stay. So then my company moved me full time to here. Ì wanted to stay
because Ì had made such great friends and the weather is fab.¨
