Getting a Job in Dubai: How to Do It

August 04, 2020
Dubai is on its way to becoming a huge major business hub in the world. It's about to rival the likes of London, Berlin, New York, and more. Not to mention it also has a stable job market that employs most of the country's population. So if you're moving to this city and you want to find a new job, you'll probably have an easy time. However, it's always better to follow the standard protocols and general tips that are followed here. These will guarantee that you'll not only get employed but get a job that's most suited for you.

Getting a Job in Dubai: How to Do It

 

Know the Big Companies in Dubai

In some cities, there's always that handful of companies that are big, wealthy, and just about everyone wants to work there. Here in Dubai, it's the same thing. There are those big businesses, known around the world, with offices here that many people know to be both a lucrative and a pleasant place to work in. They include Estee Lauder, Hilton Worldwide, Omnicom, FedEx, THE One, Hilti Emirates, and many more. With such vast companies, they probably have positions that fit your special sets of skills and abilities. And if you want a job that you know you'll grow and get rich out of, these are the companies to apply to. 

 

Build Up Your Network

If in the unfortunate event that none of the said companies hire you, a great way to look for a job is through your network. The moment you step foot in Dubai, cherish all the friendships, acquaintances, and connections you make. Not just for sentimental reasons, but also as references for when you need a new job. You never know who the people you cross paths with here are connected to. Without your knowing, your neighbor just might know a company in need of a person just like you. Or your go-to barber at the salon might know someone who can get you into the said top companies!

Find a Job Online

Still, you won't get any closer to finding a job if you don't start at it yourself. One of the first things you can do is to go on job-seeking websites and look for work there. Nowadays, many companies use the internet instead of the newspaper to post about their latest job openings. Such online platforms have wider reaches and make the hiring process on their side and the application process on your side that much easier. All you have to do is to upload your CV, write a great cover letter, send in your application and wait for a response. 

 

Seek Help from a Recruiter

Though at times, it can't be helped that you'll need professional help. And in this situation, you can always seek the help of a recruiter. It's their job to find new people for certain companies that need them. However, you can also approach one yourself and see if they know of any companies in need of your skills and abilities. In fact, a good many companies in Dubai already rely on recruiters and similar agencies to find their next new employees. The likes of Jivaro Partners, ESP International, and Robbert Murray are where they frequent the most. These are the recruiters to approach!

Put Yourself Out There

Sometimes, it's better to take the initiative. If you see that there's simply no job openings that interest you at all, take the first step into applying to companies that you want to work for instead. Send out your CV and cover letter to them randomly, letting them know that you're pretty much interested in working for them. Who knows? the moment you send your application might just be the exact moment a position opens up.  Or if not, at least, when they do finally have an opening that fits you, you'll be their top priority applicant. 

 

Be Patient

Finally, job-hunting is always an arduous process. You will need a lot of patience to get through it all. You'll need patience to wait for days—possibly weeks or months—to get a reply to your application. You'll need the patience to go through application processes again and again. You'll need the patience to go to every job interview companies require, and even more so when they reject you. All in all, you need the patience to survive job-hunting in Dubai. It's really going to take a lot of time and effort. But when you finally get that dream job, all your waiting would have been worth it!

There's no simple way to get a job in Dubai. You have to make use of all of your resources and maximize every chance in order to just get your foot through the door. But once you do, the rewards and benefits of all your hard work will be worth it! 


Also, when you get employment in this city, you can finally go for a luxury Dubai apartment as your new home here. It will pretty much fit the new lifestyle you'll be leading from now on.
