And now, gathering information from their experience in the startup field, Berlin-based startup StartupCVs have come up with 12 tips for getting oneself hired by a startup.

Interestingly, they have found that of those using their site who are native speakers in Arabic, Farsi, Kurdish and Hebrew and gave a location preference for a job, 87 percent chose at least one non-MENA location. In total only 13 percent are exclusively interested in MENA locations.
So, the drive to keep people in the region still has to be worked upon. Until then though, check out what they say will help you get that startup job.
