Jobs in Dubai UAE : How to Get a Job in Dubai

Dubai is possibly one of the last places left on the planet where there is an active jobs market – at least that’s how it feels to many living in the UK and the USA where job cuts are now the norm as companies feel the economic pinch and rein in spending by cutting back staff.

As a result, there is active interest in working overseas, and one particular location where there is a lot of focus is Dubai in the United Arab Emirates in the Middle East. The city and emirate of the same name offers a tax-free lifestyle to international employers, and what’s more, the sun almost always shines in Dubai and the way of life is incredibly luxurious.

These factors add up in the location’s favour, as does the fact that although affected by the global credit crisis, Dubai employers still have jobs available for well-qualified individuals from around the world in many industries…

If you’re looking to move abroad to live and work for a period of time and you fancy the idea of a tax-free salary and a very exciting lifestyle, then Dubai could well be the number one choice for you. But how do you get a job in Dubai – after all, it’s a location a long way away for most of us, and one where you need a job to have a visa to go and live there? Well, there are a number of ways of finding gainful employment in one of the most vibrant locations in the world, and they include the following: –

Visiting an employment expo – in certain countries in the world where Dubai recruits heavily from, such as the UK, there are annual employment expos. These give one the chance to attend and meet up with potential employers in your given industry, see what sorts of jobs are available with which salary package, speak to relocation experts and even learn about how to get a visa to move to live and work in Dubai.

For many these expos are the way in to a new life and career in Dubai. They marry employers with job seekers, they provide those wanting a job with the visa they require to move to the emirate and take up employment, and what’s more, they are probably the least hassle way to at least get your name and resume known with recruiters in your particular employment sector. Check out local and national press for details of any expos happening near you.

Using a recruitment company – there are specialist recruitment companies dealing in hiring western staff for the UAE and Dubai in particular, there are also specialist recruiters for given industries such as the oil and gas industry, teaching or medical professions, and there are also general recruitment companies that operate the whole world over. You can access these companies online and target the ones most applicable to you. Send in your CV and a covering letter and always follow up with a phone call and find out all about what the recruitment company can do for you. Remember, it is in their best interests to place you as they then win their fee or commission, so work with them to find the right job for you.

Targeting employers remotely – you can find out which companies are in operation in Dubai in your given employment sector. You can do so thanks to the Internet or through networking within your industry. Once you have the contact details of companies that you could work for in Dubai, you need to contact each one in turn and find out about any open positions that you might be suitable for. Many companies have listings of vacancies online – others have details of their personnel and recruitment departments. All this information is invaluable to someone looking for a job in Dubai.

If you contact companies with a job application or simply by sending in your resume and a covering letter detailing your skills and how and why you would like to work for the company in question, ensure you follow up with a phone call and be proactive in ensuring the company considers you seriously and at least keeps your details on file for any jobs in the future.

Visiting Dubai and looking for work – the final approach for those absolutely committed to finding a job in Dubai is to secure a visit visa for a short-term trip to Dubai and then go door to door targeting recruiters and employers. It could be wise to set up meetings and interviews in advance of your visit, and note that the weekend in Dubai runs from Friday to Saturday and that public holidays in the emirate are based on the Muslim calendar – so schedule time in the emirate at the best possible point where you can get around and see as many people as possible. Always have copies of your business card, CV and a covering letter about yourself to hand, and push yourself forward if you are determined to find a job and live and work in Dubai as competition is heating up!

Dubai presents an extensive playfield for job searchers from around the world in all fields of profession.

As mentioned earlier, every industry in Dubai is expanding at a fast rate creating space for more employees in every sector.

So, in order to avoid getting into the wrong direction, it is necessary for professionals to stay focused on their own industry and narrow their job search down as per their qualification and experience. Some of the hottest jobs in Dubai include hotel jobs, construction and engineering jobs, teaching jobs and career in IT industry etc. Management and real estate jobs in Dubai are also two of the most popular.

Behind this ongoing transformation, there is fervent construction that’s on 24/7.

The construction sector, having grown to gigantic proportions, has also caused an increased demand for construction professionals creating thousands of construction and engineering jobs in Dubai UAE.

  1. Thank you for your advice! Watching your videos has been a great help. Question- how is it appropriate to answer the question “why are you looking for a new company” when the reason is for personal/value conflict reasons? For me, my current company implements requirements for my lifestyle outside of my work. While I have followed these requirements while working here, I am seeking employment elsewhere that doesn’t have these specific constraints. However, when asked about it, I am uneasy about projecting these as my reasons, as I don’t want to sound like it’s something that’s trivial. While I feel they are valid, I don’t know how to describe this professionally. Any suggestions that you could provide? More details can be provided if necessary.

  2. I would say to write the questions and the answers down and then study the answers you are going to say.

  3. Instead of jumping through their hoops,you tell them when they violate employment law.

  4. Great content!  Hi, if your looking for a professional resume writer to write you a perfect resume then go to the
    website below! Doesn't hurt to check it out…                            
    http: //bit. ly/2LlAYtJ

  5. Thank you for your valuable speech, that's why I subscribed from india.. .

  6. J.T rocks!! Your teaching has been super helpful for me. I’m grateful.

  7. @work it daily Is it a mistake to show that you've researched about the interviewer on social medias? If I ask questions specific to details I found out about them on internet, would that be OK?

  8. What are your recommendation for retired military or transitioning soldiers?

  9. People actually need this advice? 🤣🤣

  10. An interview is all about honesty, and as long as you're courteous.. if they can't accept that, then f*** their company and bring your skill assets to another company

  11. What she saying is all bulshit!..go in there be confident and be straight up with what you want and what you need and what you can bring to their company.that's it don't pull any punches and don't try to act or say anything that you think they want to hear this b** is full of s***

  12. I just went to an interview and answered one of their questions, giving them an example for their questions, that also gave a great example of dealing with a difficult team member. The interviewer then asks, "tell me about a time when you had to deal with a difficult team member?" I said, well I think I just provided a good example of that, the interviewer said, oh yes, we can use that. Really? Reading questions off a page is not building a relationship, the interviewer has to have skills too.

    I feel that my weakness when interviewing is that I do not have a good enough memory to provide great examples for these behavioral questions. If you don't have any idea what you are going to be asked you can't be prepared. I am a great employee, but I have to write things down and set reminders because I don't have a great memory, so I suck at interviews. Is there anyway to get past this? I have an interview coming up and I know they will ask a lot of behavioral questions.

    It is not that easy for everyone to be great at interviewing, it is not something that you do all the time. Hopefully, you are not changing jobs every 3 months.

  13. Totally agree about having an answer prepared. I'm a musician. A famous session musician, Tommy Tedesco (one of the all-time greatest) said at a guitar store seminar in Bellevue, WA. he'd memorized one Flamenco riff and been paid a crapload subsequently because if a producer asked, "can you play flamenco" by any chance?" he could whip it out. Just that one lick!

    I've been asked the question about how I reacted in challenging/stressful conversation. I have a stock answer. Once, I was on the phone with an Air Force JAG major who wanted to know if my famous company 'X' in Silicon Valley could write code so that the Air Force requirement for a super secure log-in (even higher than ours, the vendor, and ours was high) could be met. I said, "probably, but it will cost us a fortune. Will you commit to X 'seats' of our software?" Major says, yep, I'll send you a PO to that effect."

    In the meantime, a notorious corporate cheapskate called up (I was already 15 minutes into unplanned OT) and said, "I don't care if the Air Force is on the other line, if you help me I'll buy a huge amount of seats, so you need to tell AIR FORCE MAJOR YOU'LL CALL HIM BACK." I told him that with respect, I couldn't simply turn away a customer with an urgent deadline whom I'd already started helping. I'll be available in an hour." The cheapskate said "it will cost you your job." I said "I sure hope not; speak soon."

    We closed Air Force business and the next day my bosses said that I'd done the right thing. The Air Force account became a key account and the cheapskate just kept calling – can't recall if he ever bought anything.

    Like Tommy Tedesco with his one Flamenco riff, I use the same example every time. It's true, it's rehearsed and while not exciting, it has worked.

  14. Two YouTube mistakes most EVERYONE makes;

    Before you have even presented a descent YouTube video you tell people to ‘hit’ the subscribe button
    and hit the bell.

    Saying these two things comes across a bit bossy and desperate.

  15. U look like my gf it's scary

  16. I am CERTAIN NO HR person ever went thru so many interviews & writing samples yet they have the audacity to act as if they’re BMOC..what a joke

  17. AND I’m not hateful, bitter. resentful..etc I’ve worked for 3 international I-Banks, each requiring 3-4 interviews & 1-2 writing samples & 2 Major Metropolitan Level 1 Trauma Centers when I switched from finance to medicine

  18. Pls tell me why HR is in any way, shape or form involved in hiring? They can’t POSSIBLY know the details of every job description & b/c hiring is VERY expensive- are you (anyone) telling me a hiring manger can’t get thru a resume every 30 seconds, max? So that’s 120 in one hour; w/ someone who knows EXACTKY what they’re looking for

  19. They should have interview classes in highschool as an extra class because it really would help more young teens get jobs

  20. Not being able to answer behavioral questions. You hit the nail on the head.

    Thank you for not going into detail on the obvious thing such as showing up on time dressed appropriately Etc.

  21. After verbalizing my observation in an interview, that the interview committee was awkwardly quiet (not a 2 way/relationship building experience) they admitted that we're "not allowed" to chat and have those conversations. It was very much a you answer -the questions interview. When they called to let me know I didn't get the job, they admitted they already had a friend in mind for the job. I'm kind feeling like I dodged a bullet on that one.

  22. If the interviewer is full of racist mind then both your technique get failed at spot…

  23. It’s soo stupid that people ask questions like this
    Why not ask what you want to know and quit beating around the bush
    All a game
    What happened to going to work and going home?
    So many ducking obstacles to get a job
    No wonder why there’s so much crime in this country

  24. Hi JT, great tips but the second tip I wish you had given us a example. I mean I would like to ask questions such as are you a micro manager or more relaxed hands off type of a manager? But this type of question can be a bit offensive so what examples do you have?

  25. Did not give examples of how to improve or answer the topics she addressed. Not helpful.

  26. First mistake: watching videos like this

  27. You unfortunately failed to provide any specific examples of how the story should be able to convey the fact that you’ve been there and done that. Nor did you provide an example of how you can carry on a two way conversation with the interviewer.

  28. Professional groveling
