I joined Michael Page in 2014 as a Recruitment Consultant in our Boston office in the United States. In my first interview, I had said that my long term career goal was to move abroad and that I wanted to join a company that would make that happen. My managing director regularly checked in to make sure this was still something I was pursuing and, when I was ready, put me in touch with offices in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. I joined the Dubai team in 2017, not knowing anyone or ever being here before!
A lot of global companies say that they offer the opportunity for international transfers but not many make the process as easy and achievable as Michael Page. I’ve not only been given the opportunity to broaden my world with the international candidates and clients I’m now working with across the UAE, but I’ve also been lucky enough to join an already international office with colleagues from all over the world. Since Page is so great with international transfers, there were a number of people on the team who were in my same position at one point and made me feel at home even before I got on the plane.”
