    Hi, Ms Lyn.
    My friends and I are planning to offer professional consulting services in Dubai, such as accounting, financial management, executive training, as a start. A friend who is already there has registered a company there. Can you please share some tips on how to penetrate the business consulting market there? But first, I wish to get to know more about what professional services are most in demand in Dubai, like for instance, accounting services? Thank you so much for your time.

      Hi Chezzel, I honestly believe that finding job is a combination of luck and your confidence on answering the interview questions. Just believe that you and your husband will land a job in Dubai and you will for sure. All the best 🙂
