"If I had to describe LinkedIn in one word, it would be: Essential.”
Head of Talent Acquisition
“I had very little knowledge of employment opportunities in other countries and certainly no contacts or means to know what was on offer. But I did know that I wanted to leave the United States and go to Germany.
I first updated my LinkedIn profile with my recent skills, and discovered that you could specifically tailor your notification settings based on company locations. Once I’d done this, I’d see around five surprisingly good matches in my inbox every couple of days.
Having this small number of good matches suited me well, as I could realistically research them to see if they were a good fit. And these matches are how I first heard about Careem, the interesting work they were doing, their fast pace of operation, and their various offices around the world.
From there, I heard back from their chief recruiter and the rest was history!”

“When I was looking for new opportunities, I didn't expect that I’d be headhunted from Dubai! It all started with an InMail that I received from Careem’s VP of Engineering, Imran Sayed, which turned into a conversation and ended with me receiving an offer from Careem.”
