搬到迪拜工作前要考虑的15个因素

Relocating for work can really help your career because it’s often easier to get a job abroad. This is especially true if you are in an extremely competitive sector that requires years and years of experience before gaining a position that pays well. Some of the other ways that moving abroad for work can benefit your career is by improving your cultural awareness, helping you save, boosting your cv and expanding your personal network.
If you’re planning to move abroad, then there’s no better place to immigrate to than Dubai because the city-state is renowned for its luxurious lifestyle and average of five days of rain per year.
But, is Dubai all it’s cracked up to be? Here are a few things you should know before you move to this exotic Eastern country.
为了工作而重新安置确实有助于你的职业生涯,因为在国外找工作通常更容易。如果你在一个竞争非常激烈的行业,需要多年的经验才能获得高薪职位,这一点尤其正确。移居国外工作对你的职业生涯有益的其他一些方式是提高你的文化意识,帮助你存钱,提升你的简历,扩大你的个人关系网。
如果你打算移居国外,那么没有比迪拜更适合移民的地方了,因为这个城邦以其奢华的生活方式和每年平均五天的降雨量而闻名。
但是,迪拜就像人们所说的那样吗?在你搬到这个充满异国情调的东方国家之前,有几件事你应该知道。

1. Socialising Is Expensive
One of the first things you should know before moving to Dubai is that everything they say about this city-state is true: it is the playground of the likes of the Kardashians and as such, luxury is all around you. The entire country is built to cater to the specific needs of rich people which means that if you’re not mindful of what you’re spending you could end up spending your salary very quickly. Eating and drinking in restaurants can be quite expensive and although you’ll be intrigued by all the fancy restaurants don’t make yourself a frequent patron.
社交很昂贵
在搬到迪拜之前,你应该知道的第一件事是,他们所说的关于这个城邦的一切都是真的:它是卡戴珊一类人的游乐场,因此,奢华无处不在。整个国家都是为了满足富人的特殊需求而建设的,这意味着如果你不注意你在花什么,你可能很快就会花光你的工资。在餐馆里吃喝可能相当昂贵,尽管你会对所有高档餐馆感兴趣,但不要让自己成为常客。

2. The Weekend Runs from Friday to Saturday
Rather than getting Sunday blues, here you get the Saturday blues. Aside from this minor detail, there are no real differences to the weekend. One particular expat tradition is brunch, but it’s not like any other brunch you’ve been to. Taking place on Friday afternoon (the weekend in the United Arab Emirates runs from Friday to Saturday), an enormous buffet of 5 star food is available to you for a fixed charge. There is everything to indulge in… lobster, oysters and steaks to macaroons, truffles and cocktails. Champagne will be popping and you’ll leave feeling the fullest you ever have, before heading to an after party to dance the night away.
周末从星期五持续到星期六
这里你得到的不是周日的忧郁,而是周六的忧郁。除了这个小细节,周末没有什么真正的不同。一个特别的外籍人士传统是早午餐,但它不同于你去过的任何其他早午餐。周五下午(阿拉伯联合酋长国的周末从周五到周六),您可以免费享用一顿丰盛的五星级自助餐。一切都可以尽情享受…龙虾、牡蛎和牛排到杏仁饼、松露和鸡尾酒。香槟会爆开,你会在去参加派对跳舞之前,留下你最充实的感觉。

3. It Can Get Stressful
Although Dubai is the most progressive of the UAE, things are inevitably very different here, which often leads newcomers to stress and depression. Being so far away from home can be difficult, especially if you’ve never lived away from your friends or family in the past and getting accustomed to this new culture can take a while. The key is to be thankful for the opportunity to experience something so different and make making friends your priority as soon as you get there.
它会变得有压力
尽管迪拜是阿联酋最进步的地方,但这里的情况不可避免地会大不相同,这往往会让新来者感到压力和沮丧。离家这么远可能很难,尤其是如果你过去从未远离朋友或家人,适应这种新文化可能需要一段时间。关键是要感谢有机会体验如此不同的事情,一到达那里就把交朋友作为你的首要任务。

4. It’s More Than Just a Desert
With only five days of rain per year, you’d probably think that relocating to Dubai would mean moving to a plain desert, but that’s not the case at all. In fact, there are many parks you can enjoy all around the city, while outside the city you can also see mountains.
它不仅仅是一片沙漠
每年只有五天的雨,你可能会认为搬到迪拜意味着搬到一个平原沙漠,但事实并非如此。事实上,在城市周围有许多公园你可以欣赏,而在城市外面你也可以看到山。

5. It Never Gets Boring
One of the advantages for the expats is that life in Dubai never gets boring. There’s always something happening, and as the city caters to the rich, all of the events going on are bound to leave you in awe. Bear in mind that this is also home to the biggest mall in the world which features literally thousands of restaurants and shops.
永远不会无聊
外籍人士的优势之一是迪拜的生活永远不会变得无聊。总会有一些事情发生,当这个城市迎合富人时,所有正在发生的事情一定会让你敬畏。请记住,这里也是世界上最大的购物中心的所在地,这里有数以千计的餐馆和商店。

6. Being Late Is Customary
This can be one of the most frustrating aspects of working in Dubai as it’s generally the rule in Western countries to be punctual for business functions. Here things are different as people are late everywhere and that’s not only accepted, but it’s also expected, especially in professional environments.
迟到是惯例
这可能是在迪拜工作最令人沮丧的一个方面,因为在西方国家,准时参加商务活动通常是一条规则。这里的情况不同,因为人们在任何地方都会迟到,这不仅被接受,也是意料之中的事,尤其是在专业环境中。

7. The High Cost of Living Is Matched by High Salaries
Unlike cities like London that are unreasonably expensive and make living there impossible, Dubai salaries match the, admittedly, high cost of living. Therefore, you’ll be able to live more than comfortably throughout your stay.
高生活成本与高工资相匹配
不像伦敦这样的城市贵得离谱,无法在那里生活,迪拜的工资与公认的高生活成本相当。因此,您将能够在整个逗留期间过得更加舒适。

8. Ramadan Is Observed and It Will Affect You
As Dubai is a Muslim country, Ramadan, the biggest Muslim religious holiday, is observed. The Ramadan is a month long, and during this time people must abstain from drinking and eating during the day. As Ramadan is the holiest Muslim holiday it also affects businesses; office hours are often shortened, many restaurants remain closed and alcohol is not served.
斋月被遵守,它会影响你
由于迪拜是一个穆斯林国家,斋月是最大的穆斯林宗教节日。斋月为期一个月,在此期间,人们必须避免在白天饮酒和进食。由于斋月是穆斯林最神圣的节日,它也影响到商业;办公时间经常缩短,许多餐馆仍然关闭,不供应酒类。

9. Being Respectful of the Local Culture Is Important
Because Dubai is one of the most advanced cities in the world, it can often be easy to forget that the local culture is very different. It’s important to respect the culture throughout your time here. Bear in mind that during your first few weeks you’ll be woken up by the call to prayer and that people take time off work to pray. It’s also common for people to go to work wearing the national dress.
尊重当地文化很重要
因为迪拜是世界上最先进的城市之一,所以人们很容易忘记当地的文化是非常不同的。在这里,尊重文化是很重要的。请记住,在最初的几个星期里,你会被祈祷的召唤吵醒,人们会抽出时间去祈祷。人们穿着民族服装去上班也很常见。

10. It Can Get Very Hot During the Summer
If you come from a very cold and rainy country this may sound like music to your ears, but remember that you’ll never get accustomed to the hot Dubai summers. Although ac units make things better inside, it’s little things like getting out of your car (most parking spaces are underground) that will make you realise that there is such a thing as too hot.
夏天天气会变得非常热
如果你来自一个非常寒冷多雨的国家,这听起来可能像音乐,但请记住,你永远不会习惯炎热的迪拜夏天。虽然空调能让车内的情况变得更好,但只有下车这样的小事(大多数停车位都在地下)会让你意识到太热了。

11. Prepare for a Non-Hectic Lifestyle
One of the advantages of moving to Dubai, a huge financial centre, is that you won’t experience the type of hectic lifestyle you’d experience elsewhere. Not everyone is running, you don’t have to cram yourself up into the tube every morning, and everyone is more laid back.
准备一种不忙碌的生活方式
搬到迪拜这个巨大的金融中心的好处之一是,你不会体验到你在其他地方会体验到的那种忙乱的生活方式。不是每个人都在跑步,你不必每天早上都把自己塞进地铁,每个人都更放松。

12. There’s a Huge Expat Community
While this doesn’t mean that you should only make friends with expats, it can be quite reassuring to know that there’s a community that has gone through the exact same process as you and is ready to assist you with everything you might need when you first get to the country.
有一个庞大的外籍社区
虽然这并不意味着你应该只和外籍人士交朋友,但知道有一个社区经历了和你完全一样的过程,并准备好在你第一次来到这个国家时为你提供一切你可能需要的帮助,这是非常令人放心的。

13. It’s a Safe Place to Live
Despite the fact that Dubai attracts many millionaires from across the world, it remains a safe place to live. In fact, nobody seems to worry about crime rates, and it’s not uncommon to see expensive cars kept running while the owners pop into a shop.
这是一个安全的居住地
尽管迪拜吸引了来自世界各地的许多百万富翁,但它仍然是一个安全的居住地。事实上,似乎没有人担心犯罪率,当车主冲进商店时,看到昂贵的汽车继续行驶也并不少见。

14. Driving Can Be Dangerous
One of the disadvantages of moving to Dubai is that you’ll need to deal with hazardous driving on a daily basis. Drivers tend to be erratic which inevitably leads to many traffic accidents. Of course, you can always take the metro or the bus and avoid the road rage altogether.
开车可能很危险
搬到迪拜的缺点之一是你需要每天处理危险驾驶。司机往往不稳定,这不可避免地会导致许多交通事故。当然,你总是可以乘坐地铁或公共汽车,完全避免公路暴怒。

15. There’s No NHS
Another disadvantage of living in Dubai is that there’s no national healthcare system which means that you’ll have to get private healthcare. Luckily many companies offer it as a standard perk for their employees.
没有国民保健制度
住在迪拜的另一个缺点是没有全国性的医疗保健系统,这意味着你必须得到私人医疗保健。幸运的是,许多公司将其作为员工的标准福利。

Moving to Dubai can be a wonderful career and life opportunity. But, as the culture is completely different, you may need to give yourself some time to acclimatise to the local culture slowly.
