    Re: job guidance

    Hi ladies,

    I have been through this process about a year back and thought I could give you guys some tips.
    Firstly, you need to post your resume in every site that you could possibly find that has job opportunities like Bayt, Naukri, Monster etc. I would advice you to create a new email id for this, as there is a tendency to receive unwanted and spam emails. Also, once you are placed, your normal email id would continue to get flooded with unwanted emails. I am going through this prob right now. Hence the warning!

    Secondly, google a list of consultants with their phone numbers and email ids. You would easily get this information online. Be shameless and send emails to them all and call up and follow up as well.

    Thirdly, contact all friends and relatives and their friends and request them to circulate your CV wherever possible. In UAE, recommendation works the most. And in all probabilities, when you end up with a job, 90% chance is due to the reco.

    Fourthly, check the appointments in Gulf News everyday. And also the classifieds. The classifieds usually have smaller jobs listed, but sometimes you may be lucky.

    Fifthly, be very very patient. These are tough times and seeking a job in the financial stream is even more difficult. It took me 6 months to find a good job and that too after having compromised on my job profile. But there are good jobs out there. You need to be patient and flexible. Apply to various fields where you think your skills can be used. Change your CV to suit the Job profile. Think out of the box.

    Sixthly, if you need a job for visa, a free zone visa is any day a good option. So if you get a measly job with a free zone visa, consider taking the leap and continue applying till you get the perfect job as you can switch easily if you have a free zone visa.

    Hope this helps. If you need any more information, feel free to ask.

    Cheers and good luck!
    In the end, you just need that one job!!!

    Puri.

    Re: job guidance

    Dear all,

    No problem at all! Hope all of you find jobs very soon. When I was in your situation I used to feel that people gave only advice but never really helped much when it came to fetching a job.
    I hope you guys don't feel that way about me :)

    Sadly I cannot give away my id on IL but if anyone is interested in Market Research related job, google GfK and apply in the id mentioned on their site for UAE. They have 2 separate companies in Dubai itself.

    Hope this helps!

    Cheers and good luck!

    Puri.
