International jobs in Middle East/UAE?
Middle East region (especially UAE) in the past 10 years has emerged as the first preference for jobs for several candidates from all across the world. It is due to some of the prominent factors which include – Handsome Pay Package, Cultural Diversity and an Appropriate Respect from Employers to a Talented Candidate, may it any domain/sector either Government Jobs, Oil & Gas, Industrial Engineering, Sales & Marketing, Banking & Finance or IT (Administration/Networking).
There are several platforms available to identify the right opportunity for a candidate, including Prestigious Job Portals, Recruitment Agencies, and Direct Employer’s International Recruitment Departments.
Still, it is difficult for candidates, to get hold of appropriate opportunities since it’s not easy to find a reliable source to promote the profile due to lack of information and unawareness about recruitment practices ongoing in the Middle East market.
There are several placement agencies spread across places, who charge a good amount of service charges and fees to introduce the candidate in the Middle Eastern market, which is also not feasible all the time. And recruitment frauds too take place because of this reason, wherein a candidate ends up paying somewhere between USD $ 700 to USD $1600 and above to land on a job which they never expected or to get nothing out of it.
