You know the drill when it comes to applying for a job. You carefully research the job posting and figure out if you have enough experience or are a great fit. You find out where they are located and plan your route. You then build up your resume and update it with all the relevant experience. Once all of that is done, you’re off. The truth is that the process and procedure is more or less the same when you’re applying for a job in any of the GCC nations.
The difficulty lies in the nature of work for an allied healthcare professional. Primarily, the biggest specific challenge lies in the long hours required of you in your work.
