Top Occupations In Dubai

Sep 17, 2008
Dubai, the wealthiest state in the United Arab Emirates, is one of the top destinations for tourists world-wide and now has potential for residential occupation as a variety of jobs have opened up for many classes of professionals and workers. With a booming US$ 37 billion economy, the country can easily provide countless opportunities for those in countries with less-promising job prospects.

One of the booming occupations presently available are for skilled pilots, in high demand by the local hub of national airline Emirates Airline, based at Dubai International Airport. A large number of pilots from around the world have taken up the numerous, lucrative positions provided those are largely unavailable in their home countries.

It also offers some of the world's best restaurants that rival those at the top end in places like New York, but are easily affordable in such a wealthy country. All in all, a wonderful quality of life is standard in this little-known economic paradise. When a country this perfect opens its doors to foreigners, who would not want take advantage?
