In spite of economic problems caused by the drastic drop in oil prices over the past year, the Gulf states are still a major draw for career-minded expats.

If you’re planning to emigrate to Qatar to further your career, it’s an idea to investigate the emirate’s major foreign employers in order to match your skills with the right company. The process will save precious time attending interviews and give an idea of what working in Qatar involves.

For example, Qatar Airways now hosts flights to all six continents, with 150 destinations daily. If aeronautics are your field of expertise, this award-winner carrier operating from ultra-modern Hamad International Airport offers unrivalled opportunities to the ambitious expat, whether airside or on the ground.

Obviously, the oil and gas industry is the driving force of the Qatar economy, with state-owned Qatar Petroleum responsible for everything related to the black gold and all its variants from exploration through production and final sale. The huge variety of jobs in the sector cover all aspects of this essential commodity, and offer expat professionals exceptional opportunities.

Qatar Rail offers positions of interest to expats experienced in mass transportation. The emirate’s new, ultra-modern rail network, metro and tram network is under construction by the state-owned company and, when completed, will be managed, operated and maintained with help from overseas professionals as well as Qatari nationals.

Shipping, especially related to liquified natural gas, is a popular sector for expat professionals, with Qatar Gas Transport Company its hub in the emirate. For production professionals, Qatar Gas, the pioneer of liquefied natural gas production in the region, is known for its innovative, safe and reliable production.

For professionals in the hospitality sector, Qatar’s luxury hotels offer expat employment at a high level, and for communications specialists there’s Vodaphone Qatar and its world-class network. Whatever your speciality, there’s a place for it in Qatar.
