Before the international crisis, UAE offered a lot of opportunities for job seekers. Recruitment was prior concern for many companies.
People usually come to Dubai through recruitment companies in their home countries. There are some who arrive here with their partners or spouses and others who come first in holiday or when visiting friends and then start looking for job.
If you find job through recruitment companies in your country (before coming UAE), the company will be paying for your airline ticket, relocation costs and official documentation related to your residency.
If you are certain about the specific industry field where you want to work, it is worth to contact companies in that domain, by sending your CV directly to them. Many such companies have vacancy listings in their own company websites.
It is usually easy to find job once you are in the UAE. Dubai based English speaking local newspapers Gulf News (www.gulfnews.com) and Khaleej Times (www.khaleejtimes.com) have dedicated classified job listings and appointment supplements. They can be extremely useful in arranging your job seeking schedule and starting the networking process.
The majority of the recruitment companies will accept your CV by email. Registering with them will require to fill a form. Recruitment companies charge the job offering companies for this service as it is not allowed to charge the fee to the applicant.
