Having lived and worked in the middle east since 1979, the jobs that will be still available and lucrative for expats, in my view, are:-

1. Information Technology
2. Education
3. Finance
4. Marketing/Advertising
5. Hospitality
6. Healthcare
7. Blue Collar utility services

The local population are still not fully competent in managing the above sectors and it may take them more time to get there.

Hello Priscilla,
I am a dependent of my husband so before I came here in Saudi, I don’t even know if there’s a career waiting for me or it’s the end of my career. Well, Life became so easy for me and my family especially when I started working after 8 months of staying here. I am currently working as an Art Teacher in an American school and it really makes me realized that I should have come earlier so I would enjoy a beautiful life here.
