The importance of ‘the network’
Dubai is a brilliant city for networking. Nearly 90% of the population were born elsewhere who have moved to Dubai to work. Therefore many have had to start from scratch and are willing to help others. Networking is the way business gets done - it’s how everything gets done. I used this method alongside traditional recruiter/search firm contacts and found that the network was faster and generated more tangible opportunities. Those with great apartments shared their landlords’ details who had properties available or coming up but never advertised. We wouldn’t have known without it. From finding a job, buying a car or even a great property - the network is king.
