Mistakes to Avoid while Applying for Job in Dubai

Now some tips to avoid some common mistakes while applying for jobs in Dubai.

1. When to apply:

This tip will save your time, some people make common mistakes such as applying for jobs in Dubai when most of the companies aren’t hiring. I would suggest to never ever apply for a job position in Dubai when it comes to the month of Ramadan, as most of the hiring in this specific month is closed.

Same goes for the days near Eid. Best months to apply for a job are December, January, June, and July as most of the companies have positions open for hiring.

2. CV Format: 

CV’s format plays an important role when it comes to acquiring a job. Dubai has a separate format for curriculum vitae which one must follow to make it understandable and likable for the person reading it.

3. Job Searching and Applying online only:

A mistake made by people during their period of stay is that they don’t really follow a plan. Here it is strongly recommended that one must look for papers and target jobs online by making some list and assigning them a day for an interview. No one knows maybe you get lucky enough to secure a job in the second interview.

Now coming to applying online only, this won’t help you get a job. Your chance of getting a job will be much higher when you go for the walk-in interviews, build your network through social media such as LinkedIn. Another best way is to drop your CV with HR person.

Lets me share some benefits to doing a job in Dubai.

Why Do Jobs in Dubai?

A simple question that why would one leave his/her country and move to get a job in Dubai? now answers to this question, the way many people see it, are:

1. Money:

Pay scale in Dubai is way more than one can get in his/her country. For example, if a person earns 10000 monthly for a job then that person will earn 15000+ for the same job and effort in Dubai. Money is the main reason many skilled workers want to get a job in Dubai and are lured to work there. Why wouldn’t they? As you are paid extra for the same effort of work. Cheers!

The last but most important factor is that in Dubai you have a tax-free salary which means you don’t have to pay any tax on your salary. 

2. A standard of Living:

The living standard in Dubai is extremely modern. Latest architecture when it comes to design. Tallest buildings when it comes to size. Best medical hospitals when it comes to health.

Imagine your walk on a pavement in Dubai and tens of Lamborghini and Porsche pass by, yes that’s the real standard of living in Dubai. If the car is not gold plated it won’t get a second look. Every small or building you visit has a perfect air conditioning system. One cannot find any lack of standard of living when it comes to doing a job at this place.

3. Tourism:

When it comes to tourism the government of Dubai seems quite serious as they see it as a way to keep foreign cash flowing into the United Arab Emirates. They have Burj Khalifa 160 stories skyscraper with a view, worth watching with your own eyes.

Not to forget about Palm Islands and Palm Jumeirah as they are a special treat for tourists in Dubai. Now imagine when you are doing a job in such a place and with some extra cash in your pocket each weekend would be a trip or picnic.

In the end of this post, I would request that if there is something missing in this post please add it in comments for helping others and Best of Luck for job hunting in Dubai.
