The first night we ate at the hotel restuarant....excellent food and we got a great discount because one of our group got locked in a malfunctioning bathroom.

Another reason I attended was to see how the job fair works for next year when I'm looking for a job. It's very bizzare. The institutions that are hiring put up their job postings and applicants hand their 'paper' resumes to a collection desk. Then applicants wait to see if institutes want to interview them and what time their interviews are. There is no communication between the institue and applicant while this is being done so you just have to wait and be available the whole weekend. I'm not looking forward to doing it next year but I guess it will be a learning experience.
On our last night, we went to a sheesha bar on the Dubai Creek and relaxed outdoors with the lights of the city twinkling accross the water.
