Finding Job in Dubai, UAE

Hi all! I'll be leaving the Philippines this coming March 21, 2017 and will stay in Dubai. Is it hard to find work in Dubai? Thanks in advance. :)

Yes it's impossible.

How is it impossible?

hi Bella , getting a good job in Dubai is not something impossible. You just need to be patient and persistent when searching for a job in Dubai. Based on my experience, I had kept on applying regularly for about a month before coming to Dubai. Some of the job sites which had helped me find a job are,,, LinkedIn. Also make sure that you regularly update your online CV and save them on almost all job sites. Your CV should look professional and the content is appropriate for the job. In my personal opinion its a wise thing to plan for a month trip to Dubai and search for the job or check out the market yourself. But it can be very challenging at same time as it will be a completely new location for you and it is not always easy to roam around in a completely strange city without any help. Best of luck!


Thanks a lot MJ for your response. Seriously I feel a little bit nervous and loosing my confident reading other people problems looking for a job in Dubai. My friends are in Dubai and working i'll be staying with them. Thank you also for your advice. I will take note of that.  :)

i am looking for the jon in diubai... which one is better to apply for the job before i visite the country of when i arrive in dubai ?

Honestly speaking, Dubai has a very tough job market right now. I've taken about five months to find a career, and I've only found it through my family. Same goes to my girlfriend who's been searching for a career for almost 9 full months on all the online sites she's been able to find.

But if you ask me what platform is better suited to get jobs in Dubai Connecting to the Agency or Submitting an Online Form?

I'm going to recommend that you go with classified websites. And I know one of the best people in Dubai. Abentra
