Hello Everybody,

I am very interested in working in the Middle East. I've had 2.5 YOEs within theManagement Consulting industry. I'm of Middle Eastern descent and am very intact with the Arabic culture. Would anybody be willing to help me navigate towards a job opportunity in the Middle East? Would love to chat more with you about it. Thank you so much!

Your best bet is to find regional recruiters contacts on company’s website and ask. If you don’t hear back, apply cold. I have seen that if you have a compelling application, your resume is read and you will hear back. Referrals don’t play a big factor and it is by design. Good luck

Would you feel comfortable telling HR that your service line’s culture sucks and name the individuals who cause it? Or is a better approach saying it’s the leadership in general creating a negative and toxic culture? How effective are these conversations really? Trying to assess if there’s any point in bringing this up. Obviously HR works for the company and an employee sharing their thoughts on the unsupportive, cold leaders could bite me in the long run.
