How can I find a job in Kuwait?

Hello,

What's the best way to find a job in Kuwait?  I'm sure this depends strongly on the field but, is there any general websites or companies I should be aware of?

A little about me:
Female, U.S. citizen.

Strong resume in admin support, no specific field.  I've worked in advertising/marketing, publishing, education and some manufacturing.

I have a degree in journalism, and plan to attend law school when I return to the U.S.  A job at an international law firm would be a dream.

Thank you in advance for any guidance. 

Best,
Ms Rahelina

Hi Rahelina and welcome to Expat.com :)

You could place an ad in Kuwait's Classified's or maybe Google around with the function you'd like to have + Kuwait and I'm sure you'll find some useful websites.

Please feel free to browse this forum for more useful information.

Good luck

Thanks All!

the best site to find good job in big companies is www.bayt.com
I have hired to times from big companies throught this site .It depend on how you write your CV. Goos Luck

Dear MsRahelina,

I have been having the same problem here in Kuwait and though I think that bayt.com is a very good website but I heard from lots including me that one hardly get a job from there...

Keep your eye on the newspapers ads and also try contacting the big companies like Alshaya, Alganim , etc or the universities. but mostly keep asking people this seems to be the only working way here :)
try the website of Ernst & Young here I know that they have been looking for someone for an Admin  vancancy

GOOD LUCK

Thanks!

It seems that the best way to find a job is to know someone presently working in Kuwait.  General employment advice is very helpful but at this point, I'm searching for people here at home who have direct contacts in the Kuwait.  This is a long shot but, if anyone knows of specific jobs, please let me know.  Thank you again for the general advice.  I am now seeking help that is a little more focused.

On that note, does anyone know of any law firms (English only, Ana me-barif Arabee emni-eckteer) that are looking for admin help?  Please and thank you!

Best,
MsRah

Hi,

If anyone need an advice in this please send me pm.

I would like to give you some tips on how to market your skills to stand out from the crowd. I've learnt the secret of skills marketing & social networking and it worked many times for me:

1. Use LinkedIn (http://www.linkedin.com) and build a solid profile about you (Summary and skills, Previous jobs, Eduction, Certifications/Training, Awards, and Memberships)

LinkedIn is a secret weapon when it comes to:

- Building professional connections in all working fields
- Sales / Marketing will be accelerated when you find and meet prospective customers, so closing deals is faster.
- Searching for jobs
- Head hunters always use LinkedIn to find talents who have solid profiles and experience

2. bayt.com is the best employment web site in the middle east.

3. Use (Kuwait Yellow Pages) and start faxing/e-mailing companies related to your field. (It worked for me)

4. Invest in printing professional looking business cards.

5. Use LinkedIn to search for companies/people in your field and set the location to "Kuwait" and the industry to the one you work in like "Marketing", and send messages/InMails asking if they are hiring, and be ready to send your CV if they agreed. (It worked many times)

I would be happy to help anyone to setup his own LinkedIn profile or how to market his skills ... for free !

I just like to help others out :)

Thanks EdQarta!  That's great advice.  I'll start working on my Linkedin profile tonight.
