I have been in Doha for a few months on a temporary assignment and I am debating between accepting a indefinite assignment here or returning to the United States. A big factor in this decision is my wife and her career. She currently works for a sports team in a major market in the United States, managing a premium seating section where her clients are the executives of the most important companies in a major market. I know finding something similar in Doha will be challenging, especially in the sporting world. High profile event management or some sort of management in a hotel might be another option. If anyone has any ideas of where to look and how to pursue jobs in these fields I would be very grateful. The availability of information here is not like it is in the United States!

I am thinking of moving to Qatar next year with my partner. I am a teacher, and my partner is a PA.
From a ex-pat point of view, is moving to Qatar a wise choice?
Also, are the teaching salaries similar to UK teaching salaries? I'd be surprised if they were, so roughly how much should I expect?
I am moving to qatar by this summer and I am looking for a post , I am recently graduated ( Degree in Translation) , I have 2 years experience in teaching languages Arabic, French and English in priticular as i've worked with foreigners
I am also working as a research assistant with Dr Akram Al Ariss ( ESC Toulouse, France) and Professor Chris Brewster (Henley Business School, UK) on a study over the perception that expatriates living in the GCC have over the local business environment, local management style and cross-cultural issues. Results of this study will be used in academic research and would help understand more the expatriates and this open the way for future managerial improvements.
For this, we have prepared a survey and we are trying to have the maximum number of responses from expatriates.
Please participate in this survey by following this link:
I appreciate your participation,
Describe your experience giving birth there. What type of facility did you go to? What (if any) type of pain management did you use? How long did you stay in the hospital? Was it a positive experience? Etc...
Al Ahli hospital. It was amazing. I was in for 3 days. My Dr was Dr. Daniz Ihsan. She monitored my entire pregnancy and the birth. When I went to deliver (with the eipdural), my daughters heart was slowing and she sat with me 100% of the time watching. Al Ahli is like a hotel (complete with bell boys). it was great. Private room, great nurses and everything. Expensive but insurance paid almost 80% (Continue)

Hi Fellow Professionals
Iam a Telecom Consultant Engineer
who have been trying
to find Telecom work in UAE,GCC,Middle-Eastern countries for a while now but not having much luck. Can anyone offer me any sound unbiased advise on exactly where to look for. I have applied via numerous international agencies as well as local agencies and responded to their adverts but I did not even get a courtesy acknowledgement. I know for a fact there are a lot of scammers out there and so far I have avoided them. Your advice will be greatly appreciated.
