Where To Find The Best Jobs In The World

Government economic statistics are all lies and gorilla math… and one of their most creative frauds is the unemployment figure.

Intuitively, when they say ‘the unemployment rate is 9%,’ that would suggest to the average Joe that 9% of the labor force is, in fact, unemployed. Oh no. Most governments have entire departments and agencies to dazzle people with statistics and calculations that defy common sense.

You see, when someone has been unemployed for too long, they can simply fall out of the system. In other words, the number of unemployed people can actually rise, while the government’s official unemployment rate falls. It boggles the mind. Government figures in no way pose an accurate snapshot of the situation.

A better way to look at it is to consider the raw numbers. In the United States, there are roughly 14 million unemployed, and millions more who are either part-time or woefully underemployed. In Europe, the number of unemployed is over 20 million.

It’s not a pretty picture, and the more that governments do to ‘fix it,’ the longer they prolong the pain. Barack Obama is set to blow another useless round of hundreds of billions of dollars, while central bankers from the United States to England to Switzerland are inflating their currencies without bound.

persistence Where to find the best jobs in the world

If you’re one of the tens of millions of unemployed in the western world, I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that your situation at home isn’t getting better anytime soon. The good news is that many foreign job markets are quite strong.

Here in the Middle East, there are a number of countries that shook off the effects of the economic downturn and are still growing feverishly. If you’re looking for a job, this may be a good place to start.

Even a casual glace at the employment section of Gulf News, one of the region’s leading publications (based in Dubai), shows a number of well-paying positions available in a variety of fields… things like:

- Marketing manager: $5500 monthly
- Bank branch manager: $8200 monthly
- Financial analyst:  $15,000 monthly
- Administrative assistant: $1800 monthly
- Warehouse supervisor: $1700 monthly
- Personal trainer: $2750 monthly
- Fashion retail shop manager: $2200 monthly
- Regional sales manager: $9000 monthly
- Business development manager: $9500 monthly
- Senior accountant: $11,000 monthly
- Quality control specialist: $12,250 monthly

These jobs are available across the region, from Abu Dhabi to Kurdistan (yes that’s Iraq) to Egypt to Qatar to here in Lebanon.

Most of the positions, especially the better paying jobs, have great benefits. And no I’m not talking about casual Friday. In this part of the world, it’s common for employers to provide a house and chauffeured car in the package, and sometimes even private schooling for the kids.

Commissions and profit shares are also common, depending on the position.  And as an added benefit, most of these places have little or no local tax… so you keep what you earn.

By way of comparison, if you make $4,000/month ($48,000 annually) in Abu Dhabi, that’s the after-tax equivalent of making $65,000/year in the US. If you make $7,500/month ($90,000 annually) in Dubai, it’s like making $130,000 in the US.

What’s more, US tax law excludes the first $92,900 from income tax. Other nationalities pay nothing.

Remember, the world is a big place, and there’s a lot of opportunity out there for the creative mind that seeks unconventional solutions. Right now on the Gulf News jobs website, there are hundreds of jobs that pay anywhere from $4,000 to over $16,000 per month just waiting to be filled.

Most of those nearly 30 million unemployed in the United States and Europe are going to sit around and wait for the government to ‘fix things.’ I hope they’re patient because they’re going to be waiting for a very, very long time.

Other people who are willing to take control of their future will find a lot of options if they have the courage and resourcefulness to look overseas.

Oh great; another post from the pedantic Simon "the grass is always greener" Black.

Well Simon; the grass may be greener on the other side of the fence; but it still needs to be mowed...

yeah...I mean Dubai??  The nation that said fuck off to any nonconnected contract party?  The one with a ton of filthy arabs who won't hesitate to screw the shit out of you, and the one with the supermassive property bubble and zillions of sqft of empty CRE?

Because that is different in the US?

If you aspire to making $92k while living in a hell hole, more power to you.

Agreed. Simon "No immigration controls" Black is a dolt. He wants all countries to lift all immigration restrictions immediately, which, by the way, the USA did years ago. Furthermore, this lack of immigration restrictions is the principal cause of the high unemployment rate in the USA. Simon Black apparently cannot see the causal nexus there. Dolt.

Let's hope mass migration out of the US happens soon.

Long-John-Silver's picture

We already have mass migration of American jobs.

Be careful what you ask for. Have you ever heard the phrase "The good get out"? Well, they are. They have. Look at what you have left.

Already happening. Here in Phoenix about half the Mexicans took their money and went home

Americans don't want to work. Got it? That's what the Chinese are for.

Rastadamus's picture

You got that right Funky Monkey! That's why since leaving High School I saved my money in gold and now I' retired at 50. It's real simple. I don't even own a house! Not yet anyway. For all the sheeple that followed the herd and started up those 401K thingys, I got one word to say..... SUCKAS!!!!!!!!!!!



toady's picture

All of my parents generation (aunts, uncles, etc.) Were screwed by the stock market, pension, 401k world, so I simply will not do that shit.

I'm in gold, silver, lead, and sustainability.

Good luck if you aren't!

Americans don't need to work. We have a consumer economy and our role is to consume Chinese exports. But in order for this system to function we need to boost aggregate demand or else we will spiral into chaos.

Okay, your mask of absurdity slipped a little on that one and the sarcasm shined through just a tad.

Actaully the Chinese are exploiting Africa like America did to them.

Good work, if you can get it.

LOL monkey, I'd love to say you are wrong, but I went to my son's football practice yesterday and I was appalled.  I have never seen a bigger bunch of lethargic fat bodies.  They were dogging it the whole practice and basically refused to run.  How do you play football if you can't run?  If they take that work ethic into the real world, they are doomed.

Don't worry man, the up and coming "great thinning" will fix that slack, dead ass shit most ricki-tick.

Yeah...that's fuckin brilliant Simon. Have Americans go to the middle east seeking jobs because we've been soooooo good to Arabs and Muslims that they'll just be thrilled to death that we go there and seek jobs.

Seriously...just fuckin brilliant. While you're at it, why not suggest a Palestinian run for Mayor of Tel Aviv?

alien-IQ's picture

his post have gotten so preposterous that I would not at all be surprised to see him write something suggesting we all take jobs as jugglers for a tribe of pygmies in the Congo.

Pool Shark's picture

Or, how about setting up a yacht brokerage in Haiti?

alien-IQ's picture

LOL!!! yeah that's the kind of shit I can see coming from him.

The pygmies have job openings? Pack my bags, Mavis!

4200 applicants showed up for the juggling gig.  I've been juggling since I was twelve and couldn't even get a callback.  It's that tough out there.  I guess it's off to Abu Dhabi or Doha.  I do what I've been told is a really convincing Gamal Abdul Nasser impression.  "Qowmia al Arabiya!"  Hopefully I can do stand-up in some juice bar.

Alien, you've obviously haven't travel to the middle east.  They like Americans, what they don't like is our government.

I, being fond of women in Bikini's, can find no practical reason to want to go there.

You, being too fat to fuck, lose nothing in the move.

I'm pretty sure they're fond of women in bikinis too...  hence the popularity of baywatch...

haha -you took the words out of my mouth

Fukushima Sam's picture

Yeah, what the fuck is "grass-is-always-greener" Simon really selling and why does he keep ending up in the main articles on ZH?

Obvioulsy he needs a tax write-off for all his traveling.  Probably that's the real motive for the increasingly crazy posts...

carpman's picture

I thought that was what the US army was for. They find plenty of work for Americans in the Middle East.

Like there is a rating for articles, there needs to be a rating for the comments section as a whole.  This is hillarious.


I new something was up with Simon when he went postal on someone bringing up fuel riots/protests in Terra del Fuego during his Chile phase.

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

Yeah......but America has the best corporate welfare system in the world. America will always be number one in something!

Simon your drivel is thinly veiled marketing at best. Wonderful sales pitch with nothing behind it. Are you a secret groupon agent?

gonands for you . com?

This site is like herpes, viruses will come of it.


Thisson's picture

I checked out the site, and now I have to make the tough decision of whether I want to be a "Country Manager" or a "Discipline Engineer." 


RichardENixon's picture

I worked as a "Discipline Engineer" once. I think it was on 42nd Street in New York, though.

they are overpaid for now.

williambanzai7's picture

Having been there and listening to the expat chatter, this is a crock of shit. If there are jobs there now, it is because no one wants to be there.

Oh regional Indian's picture

Now that is funny. Unfortunately, the American accent is getting to be almost universally hated. Sad but true.

Here in india, all the expats hide in gated communities, commute in blackened out SUV's and have their own 'circles". Never sees them mix. Teh foreigners out and about are th estudents of Yoga, hippies and of course those damn Israeli de-mobbed tourist drug mules.

Simon gets a negative here. Thumbs down. The ME is anything but a safe haven for Ummerikans.

Leave if you don't need to work or if you can be humble.

I want to go to New Zealand, but I'm too old and they don't want me. I don't blame them.

Yep, it's the old "Any country that would have me I wouldn't care to live in" thing.

Sorry but this is common procedure for US citizens in any country they expatriate to.

US citizens really think that their ways are superior. They dont want them to be tainted by other people's ways.

Quite astonishing when one considers that it is the US ways that has pushed the world headlong to the current disaster but wont prevent US citizens from never mixing with others, never learn the language and the rest...

That is their natural behaviour. They are not hiding. They just preserve themselves from the effects of alien influence (because, yes, everywhere US citizens go, they are at home and the locals are the foreigners)

That is just the way it is.
