Dubai has emerged as one of the global destinations for a myriad of activities.

With the introduction of Golden Visas, the reasons to explore Dubai have only increased. The market has attractive job opportunities, promising a good job in almost any sector. In addition to the attractive job prospects, Dubai offers a higher quality of life and is regarded as one of the safest cities for women in the world.

However, one should also be well aware of the requirements of jobs in this country beforehand to make the best out of the opportunities available since the job market is highly competitive. Being one of the most notable middle-eastern countries, Dubai has a mix of traditions from across the globe. There are certain things concerning its culture that people should keep in mind. Women should be aware of the appropriate clothing for Dubai. So, here are a few tips to help you navigate job hunts easier:



Know the market

Prioritise your skills and demands, and understand the market. This will help you while you create your CV when you register on job portals and make connections. Note down important positions opening up, as well as names of recruiters and the best agencies as well.

Prepare a good CV

An attractive and well-polished CV is of utmost importance when you start applying for jobs. Given the competition in the market, recruiters generally don’t spend more than a few seconds skimming through a CV. You must be conscious of the role being offered and curate your CV accordingly. Enumerate your achievements relevant to the job roles to catch the attention of the recruiter.

Register on a good job website

There are thousands of websites across the internet offering jobs. But before embarking on your journey, be clear about the sector in which you would like to work. A good website can offer you multiple possibilities and help you build connections. Job-oriented websites like LinkedIn will be of immense help in that arena.

Make the best use of your connections

You can get recommended by the big shots in your connections and this will make you stand out among the crowd. Since there are always more people than available job opportunities, it is always beneficial to get recommendations from relevant professionals.

Walk-in interviews

You should always be prepared to attend a Walk-in-interview. You may not get your dream job right off the bat but being prepared will prevent you from missing out on significant opportunities. This will give you a footing while you keep hunting for your dream position.


Keep your spirits up

Dubai is a global market – it may not be easy to get a job despite your qualifications. Patience is the key here. The strain of job-seeking might start taking a toll on you but you should be ready to face that and move forward. Preparation in advance by following all the pointers mentioned above will help you overcome hurdles to an extent.

Additionally, keep your health in check. Your fitness certificate will be important to get accepted so maintain a healthy lifestyle. Make sure all necessary documents are up to date and you comply with the required laws of the land as well.
