Has working in Dubai always been your dream? Have you been sending CV’s to several employers and haven’t heard back anything even from a single employer? The hiring methods and practices have changed over the years. Recruiters and employers look for candidates who can smartly attract them. Hence, you must follow certain steps and only then will it work out for you.
Make a plan first
Shooting arrows in the dark and trying random ways to get the most appropriate job in Dubai doesn’t work. You must make a plan before actually applying for jobs in Dubai. Before making a plan identify your skills, talents, and preferences. Decide where you would like to work and at which position. Research the job market in Dubai and accordingly, you can make your plan. Your plan must include the most favorable companies that could hire you depending on your skills, your desired job role, job location, salary expectation, etc.
Look within and polish your skills
You must understand that getting the most appropriate job in Dubai is not a cakewalk. People with superior skills are preferred the most. Hence, find out your strengths and weaknesses. Also, find out your talents and skillsets. Whether your desired job requires better skills or not, try to polish them before you apply for jobs. You can consider seeking training, completing some relevant courses, etc.
Grow contacts on LinkedIn and other social sites
Social media platforms are becoming popular for job seekers. There are various groups, pages, and communities that post various job vacancies around the world or specific to a country. You can be a part of these social groups to stay updated with various vacancies. LinkedIn is the best among all the social media platforms. It is a great place to make professional contacts that you can benefit from.
Ask for references
If you have your friends or family members who are already working in Dubai, start communicating with them often. Try to find out the lifestyle of employees in Dubai, their work environment, behaviours, rules, etc. as nothing can help better than the collecting information from a person who is already working there. Ask them to give your reference in their own company for the desired position. References work wonders these days. There are chances that the organisation may connect with you directly.
Hire a good international recruitment agency
To ease the entire process, you can hire an international recruitment agency or an independent recruiter. These agencies and recruiters have a vast and varied database of various job vacancies. They can help you to choose a job that exactly matches your expectations by also helping you select the right organisation.
