Moving to Dubai

I agree with the one of the previous mails. Visit the place first! Don't just uproot yourself and your family without investigating the situation properly.

Accomodation in dubai

That's a bit of a difficult one, where will you be working. Dubai is not a small town. The place is quiet de-centralised and the major areas of employment spread around.

Re: Tips For Working And Finding Work In Dubai

Depends what you intend doing with the qualification and experience?
Teaching/ lecturing or actually working?

Work depends on industry sector.
Teaching and lecturing definitely depends on institution.
