Sit and close your eyes. Visualize a time when you were excited about a new job or happy in your current one. What feelings do the images conjure up for you? What parts of the images excite you? Do you like the people? The work? Then think about your job today. Do you have different feelings? What don’t you have in your current GIS Job that you wish you did? Are you looking for new career in GIS? Do you belong to low wages countries?
Finally, visualize how you’ll feel when you find your dream job. Embrace that energy, excitement, and engagement and feel it through your entire body. What parts of the new job will make you feel this way? Using visualization to determine what’s important to you and embracing the feeling that comes from the imagery will help you power through the arduous job-hunting process if there is disappointment or it’s taking longer than you anticipated. Use this technique when exhaustion or false narratives take over.
UAE is the best place to start career in GIS especially if you belong to low wages countries?
5 REASONS TO WORK IN UAE
- Great quality of living
UAE’s Dubai and Abu Dhabi emirates offer the highest quality of living in the Middle East and Africa region, according to Mercer’s 2016 Quality of Living Rankings.
This year, only two cities from the MENA region made it among the top 100, including Dubai, ranked at 75 (overall no.1 in the region, and Abu Dhabi, ranked at 81 (over no. 2 in the region). This is the fourth time in a row that Dubai has been ranked as the top Middle Eastern city for living.
The quality of life provided by the emirate comes with the perk of being tax-free. The place spoils you with its line of restaurants, supermarkets and modes of entertainment. Tourists from all over the world visit this city for its fantastic shopping experience during the Dubai Shopping festival. From the biggest brands to the gold and spice souks – Dubai has something for everyone — be it pocket-friendly or luxurious.
2. Safety and security
For expats, safety in particular is a key factor to work abroad, according to Business consulting major Mercer.
Dubai is ranked #40 globally on the safety parameter and follows Muscat regionally.
It doesn’t matter what time of the day you step out; you can freely walk on the streets of the emirate without the fear of being attacked or mugged. Crime-rate in the emirate is close to non-existent and the police is efficient and fast.
Businesses thrive in secure circumstances and Dubai provides an investor-friendly environment coupled with stringent business laws to accommodate foreign investors.
3. Ease of starting your own business
New markets, new consumers, the rise of Internet technology – Dubai is a land of booming opportunities.
A recent survey by HSBC revealed that Dubai is ranked second-best city in the world after Singapore for expats looking to start a business. The survey highlights that the UAE’s entrepreneurial environment, job prospects and better salaries as primary factors attracting expats from across the world.
“Despite the volatility in the global economy and insecurity in job markets, the UAE’s diverse business landscape and its position as a hub in the Middle East means that it continues to be an attractive destination for expats from across the world,” the survey report said.
4. World class infrastructure
An ever-growing network of roads, rail, ports and development projects — Just blink and it’s upgraded. In the run-up to the Expo 2020, the Dubai construction sector is poised to outperform the overall UAE market, although growth across the emirates is expected to remain healthy at 6.6 per cent despite low oil prices, market watchers said.
“While lower oil prices pose little threat to the UAE’s construction industry outlook overall, we forecast real growth in 2016 of 6.6 per cent in real terms year on year,” the report said.
According to another report by design and consultancy firm Arcadis, the UAE and Qatar remain the topmost attractive markets for infrastructure investors globally.
What’s the use of staying abroad, away from your family if you’re not even able to save enough? Dubai provides the best tax-free investment opportunities to residents who want to live a comfortable and luxurious life. You do not need to pay wealth tax, corporate tax or income tax.
While investors get maximum profits on rented out property in Dubai, the benefit of having to pay no tax simply means that a person can save enough money to invest elsewhere.
