If employers ask for a fee during the hiring process, it’s a fraud. Yet, it won’t hurt if you post and spread your CV around job sites, though.
Great website for jobs in UAE. It has thousands of registered recruiters who are willing to employ professionals.
Does it look familiar? I’ve frequently consulted careerjet.ph before, I just came to know it has its AE version. Worth checking.
7. Khaleej Times
Save a penny by checking out Khaleej Times Appointment section online. Whether skilled, technical or professional jobs, this online job site has something for you.
The online version of Gulf Newspaper’s job section. I’ve used this site quite a lot while I was looking for any job to get me an employment and residence visa. I got at least one call for an interview every day, then. The key is to ask directly about the salary, to weed out the cheapskates.
9. TheEmiratesNetwork Jobs
Always amazed by the huge salaries offered to job-seekers, Nadia never slipped my memory. Little do job surfers know, Nadia is not just a part of daily Gulf newspapers Appointment page, but also an active job site itself. It has a downside though: most offers were for Arabic-speaking job-hunters.
