Dubai has its first sandwich board job seeker


A few months ago, I was at a networking meeting for job seekers and one guy in construction was looking for work. A member suggested that if he wanted steady work, he should go to Dubai, where the construction business was so busy that companies were hiring people off the street.

No more. The global financial crisis has hit Dubai, as WalletPop has reported before, and now it has reached a new low.

An unemployed Briton who worked in the United Arab Emirates' property industry for 27 months, is out of a job and walked around at a property fair in Dubai with a sandwich board on him that reads "Job Wanted. Senior Project Manager. Clive," for Clive Walley, according to a Reuters story.
