In the past 72 hours, a non-profit organisation called All Xpats – Dubai, has opened up its brand new forums which have already attracted over 120 members. The forums are for expats living in Dubai or people wishing to move to Dubai.
According to All Xpats – Dubai: Someone signed up in under 20 seconds, can you beat that?
Why it is a good idea to join a forum group in Dubai?
1. Make new friends
With plenty of other xpats to meet on forums, you’re bound to find a few people with similar mindsets who are looking to meet up. If you do meet someone on the forums, you can become friends with them and then send private messages to each other! This means no one else can see your private messages to one another.
2. Networking & Jobs
You can start discussions and meet other similar minded people that work in Dubai which you may never meet if you didn’t sign up to the forums. There is also a jobseekers section where you can post the type of job you are looking for and get recommendations on what to do next.
3. Increase Knowledge
By joining in with discussions and trying to help other people out, you will be surprised by how much information you retain and know in future when asked by other people.
4. Ask & Answer
With some of the most experienced xpat mums, dads, business people and other people knowledgeable in a range of areas on the new Dubai forums, you’re bound to get a pretty good answer. You can also make someone’s day by helping to answer their question.
