During the current sanitary restrictions, companies are not hiring international workers, so if it was difficult before, it will be more difficult now. I'm not sure what your career or line of work is, but I would look for a job in your state / country that is multinational and maybe have offices in UAE and then hope to transfer. This is a long shot, but it is another opportunity to analyze. Have you been visiting as a tourist and have you made any contact? In your industry, what roles are there in the UAE?

During the current sanitary restrictions, companies are not hiring international workers, so if it was difficult before, it will be more difficult now. I'm not sure what your career or line of work is, but I would look for a job in your state / country that is multinational and maybe have offices in UAE and then hope to transfer. This is a long shot, but it is another opportunity to analyze. Have you been visiting as a tourist and have you made any contact? In your industry, what roles are there in the UAE? I would look into it, but I wouldn't expect anything to move for some time until the virus is fixed.

Getting a job in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, is quite difficult. And, with this pandemic lockdown due to Covid-19, it has become even more difficult for people in need of a job. The opportunities will open after August 31 until then you will have to wait.

For a job, you need to have a good CV, proper documentation, pleasant personality and good experiences and lately luck. Apply on all job portals, connect with people in Dubai, UAE on LinkedIn and share your resume. Hopefully this will help you get a job there.

He has not mentioned the details of his qualifications and abilities. To get a job in Dubai, you must have professional / technical qualifications with skills and some years of experience.

If you only have academic qualifications with no skills, then it is quite difficult to get a job. Right now, wait for the situation to return to normal and, hopefully, you will be able to get a job only after the end or control of this pandemic that has shaken the economy of the entire world.

This is a million dollar question. However, you must provide more information about your discipline and nationality. You need to share your job search experience. Although jobs are quite scarce in this critical period in which companies are still grappling with the consequences of the pandemic, there may still be few opportunities.

Here are my few pennies to find work in Dubai. Based on my personal experience, I have jotted down some points that worked for me and which did not.

According to your state:

  1. If you currently reside in the UAE on a spouse / family visa? - It is legal to work here if you have your spouse visa. It is comparatively easier to get a contract job initially when you have your own visa.
  2. Are you cooler? Are you staying in your native country? Do you currently have a job in your home country? -Try to find the scope of your field in the UAE with people on LinkedIn. You can ask them to refer you if you com

  2. Are you cooler? Are you staying in your native country? Do you currently have a job in your home country? -Try to find the scope of your field in the UAE with people on LinkedIn. You can ask them to refer you if they are relevant to you. You can also follow recruiters / consultants in your domain and apply for suitable vacancies. If you already have your friends or family working in the UAE, try to get their help to find a job here.

In my experience, referrals and LinkedIn are more effective than job portals.

Also, when reaching out to people on LinkedIn for help, keep a few points in mind:

  1. Keep your LinkedIn profile up to date: your country of residence, your visa status (mention if you have a valid work visa), a little about yourself and your skills.
  2. Be very active on LinkedIn - Don't be too choosy or lazy when applying for jobs. Like everywhere, there is great competition here.
  3. Approach the Right People the Right Way - From my personal experience, I can say that your LinkedIn request has a better chance of being accepted when you send it with a personal note. You can mention your skills, visa status, etc. in the note.

In the end, don't bombard anyone on LinkedIn - reach out to someone at your level (in terms of seniority, field, and company). Also understand that not everyone is helping. Few people help, most don't. Don't bother people over and over again if they don't respond to you.

Honestly speaking, Dubai has a very tough job market right now. It took me about 5 months to find a job and I only found it here through my family. The same goes for my girlfriend, she looked for a job for almost 9 full months on every online platform she could find. The only way she found work was because my brother put her in touch with a friend.

To advance to this point, you must understand our history. I am an Indian expat from a relatively wealthy family that has made Dubai their home for over 30 years. My girlfriend is a white American from Texas. We both have US college degrees Yg

If you want some important advice, I'll tell you one thing. DO NOT come to Dubai with a visit or tourist visa and start looking for work. It will take too long and spend all your money. Another tip would be never to fall for a CV distribution scam. There is a couple in this city. They will take your money and never call again.

It will take a long time to find a good job in Dubai. If you have the right skills and experience, you can find a good job. If you are not looking for low-paying jobs. When I started working here in Dubai, I had a starting salary of AED 3000. In the United States, my first job paid me about $ 3,000. Be patient. Keep applying online and you will find a job sooner or later. But while you're looking for a job, just keep working and developing skills to put up that resume. I see many people asking for help "please sir, I am looking for work in Dubai". This will never work, no one will hire you through informal social media platforms. Here are some links to check out.

In my opinion, if you want a job, you need to do your research and find the companies to apply to. Make sure you go directly to your professional platforms. I find that it works much better than using Linkedin.

Hope this helps some people.

It is not correct to say that job opportunities are diminishing. In contrast, the UAE job market has even opened up to niche skills in many sectors that were previously not in demand in this region. Renewable / alternative energy, technology, transport, etc. are some examples.

In my opinion, over the years, the hiring process has been streamlined on a variety of parameters. The focus is on recruiting qualified and experienced resources, giving UAE citizens the first priority. Also, there has been an increase in scrutiny from a security perspective that may be affecting some people.

The focus is on recruiting qualified and experienced resources, giving UAE citizens the first priority. Additionally, there has been an increase in scrutiny from a safety perspective that may be weighing on some job applicants. There is definitely a very fast move towards automation that can change the hiring profile again for many jobs.

I'm not sure if you are referring to a specific sector in your question. It is a fact that some sectors have seasonal fluctuations based on economic and market conditions. Hiring in the construction sector has been slow in recent years. However, this is expected to pick up this year as a result of the upcoming EXPO 2020. Associated infrastructure projects are also picking up speed (extension of the metro line, expansion of the airport, etc.).

In short, the days when everyone could come to the Middle East to make money are probably long gone; however, the right skills, qualification, and experience can still provide you with a highly rewarding career in this region.

The engineering field is full of opportunities, especially in developed countries like the United Arab Emirates. Almost every field of engineering has many job opportunities when it comes to the United Arab Emirates. As the UAE is a hub of tall buildings and beautiful structures, that is why you will find many construction related jobs on online job portals. Civil Engineering is the most demanding engineering in the entire Middle East. After civil engineering, the field of electrical engineering is very demanding and highly paid in the UAE. In the United Arab Emirates, you will find air conditioners that operate 24/7.

Civil Engineering is the most demanding engineering in the entire Middle East. After civil engineering, the field of electrical engineering is very demanding and highly paid in the UAE. In the UAE, you will find air conditioners that work 24/7, from offices to shopping centers and from bus stops to bathrooms. That is why energy engineers are highly paid in the UAE. Most of the UAE's earnings, except Dubai, come from petroleum products, so jobs for petroleum engineers are also highly paid. If we are talking about a newer engineer, there are no top jobs for a newer engineer in the UAE. You can only work in sales. There is no concept of a trainee engineer in the UAE. You have to start working from the first day of your incorporation. Except for Dubai, they come from petroleum products, so jobs for petroleum engineers are also very well paid.

Don't be frustrated.

The job market in the United Arab Emirates, especially Dubai, is very competitive. Since you've asked this question, it means you have an analytical mind, which is great, but…. It may not be a good hiring click, and very few employers will need this kind of mind.

To understand the process, you need to understand the position of the employer or the interviewer. He received multiple applications and CVs from everyone. It is very easy to see that you would be receiving some applications from others who have more experience than you, and perhaps better temperament or style.

The job market in the United Arab Emirates, especially Dubai, is very competitive. Since you've asked this question, it means you have an analytical mind, which is great, but…. It may not be a good hiring click, and very few employers will need this kind of mind.

To understand the process, you need to understand the position of the employer or the interviewer. He received multiple applications and CVs from everyone. It is very easy to see that you would be receiving some applications from others who have more experience than you, and perhaps better temperament or style.

To survive and win, you must have more than just a CV or an academic degree. You must have skills. These skills will really stand out and make you more attractive and in demand. If I am an employer, I look at many applicants, but only interview those closest to my needs. I do that to classify the exact good ones. I will look for a specific person.

Your survival skills MUST include your ability to silently interview the interviewer, scan their mind, and discover what they are looking for. Focus on that and you will be chosen. Do you think it is difficult and difficult, and you will never be able to learn it? So stay home with your mom and drink your milk every morning. Sorry to be hard on you. But that is life. It's a harsh reality out there.

You must energize yourself and be alert and energetic at all times. The UAE is a good place to live and work, but it is very competitive in a very subtle way. If you are smart, aggressive, talented and competent, then you will not survive and the work will pass to the next person.

It seems that you have it in you. You are still young and have no experience. Everything that is needed can be learned, including the skills mentioned above. So… get down to work and start learning and developing. Take up the challenge and be the new you, and unleash your inner winner.

I suggest you watch the movie "In Pursuit of Happiness".

It is one of the best true stories that shows that success is the result of hard work and some sacrifices.

Your work, which is tailor-made for you, is waiting for you somewhere. Keep looking and don't give up. Soon you will be discovered and you will be responsible for something.

Dear brother Oluwole,

Yes, you can get a job anywhere with good social media skills.

Alternatively, you can always apply at Find Your Next Finance Job. They advertise specific roles for DUBAI and GCC on this website.

If you have contacts in the GCC (Dubai is part of that, like the other 6 Emirates that make up the UAE), you will find a job.

It is always good to develop previous contacts through LinkedIn! I always speak with a headhunter or source before venturing abroad for a consulting job or assignment.

Do not land in Dubai or anywhere else in the GCC without obtaining the proper references

Do not land in Dubai or anywhere else in the GCC without obtaining the proper references. Most of my friends from Pakistan, who went to the UAE to look for work, only came back empty-handed.

So, be careful before packing your bags without doing the ground work.

It is best to create a profile on LINKEDIN and add the headhunters operating in the UAE / Dubai to your contact list. Additionally, you can also add professionals working in your area of ​​interest to the same list.

Talk to them about opportunities that might exist in your field of expertise.

Good luck!

Hello there…

This is really true for the United Arab Emirates. I have seen many people in the UAE where they got a very decent job and very attractive packages based on their work experience and skills. They are even bigger secondary dropouts. They came to Dubai as a day laborer / assistant. They work, they learn, they improve their skills. They improve their communication skills, unlike what they do for the first time in Dubai, they do not know or understand English. As time went by, they gained experience. They are now experts in their niche, thanks to all the work they put into their work. As a reward, they are now in command position in that organization.

They provide training to new hires whose qualifications are much higher than they are.

Therefore, the UAE really respects experienced and hardworking people, even if they have not graduated.
