Guide to Recruitment Agencies in Dubai

Understand How Dubai Recruitment Agencies Operate To Exploit Them

Don’t you wish there were a way to get recruiters in Dubai work hard to find a job that’s just right for you? You must be wondering: “with all the opportunities in Dubai, there got to be a company and a position that is just right for me. How can get recruiters in Dubai to find that position for me?” I will tell you how!

Many job seekers approach recruitment agencies as if the recruiters will find employment for the candidates just out of kindness in their hearts. That’s not the case. Think of employment agencies as retailers, your profile is their merchandise. Using the advice that I’m about to give you to bring your profile from the “back” and put it right in the showroom or even in the display window right in front of shopping employers!

First, you must understand the following:

How Do Legitimate Dubai Recruitment Agencies Make Their Money?

The larger the package you get from your employer, the more money the employment agency that brokered the transaction makes. That’s how legitimate recruitment agencies get paid. Recruiters will help you get as high a salary as possible. They will tell you how high your potential employer might be willing to go. If they don’t, ask them.

Getting the Most Out of Dubai Recruiters

Now I will give you tips and information on the most effective ways to utilize recruitment agencies in Dubai and maximize the outcome of your efforts. First:

How to Make Dubai Recruitment Agencies Forward Your CV/Resume to Employers

Here is the wrong way that people usually use to approach recruitment agencies in Dubai:

Some people will scour the internet and go from Website to Website looking for the contact information of recruitment agencies and after having wasted so many hours they will have a list of 50 or so of the emails of recruitment agencies. They will then send their CV to the recruitment agencies and just wait, hoping for a phone call. Unfortunately, they never get it!

You may have experienced that yourself and you’re wondering why your efforts didn’t pay off.

Build a Relationship First

The real way to get a response from recruitment agencies and get them to work with you in order to find a job for you is establish direct relationship with them. Well, not with the agency, but with an individual recruiter who works there.

This is actually easier than it seems. Let me explain: in each recruitment agency there are several individual recruiters with each recruiter specializing in a specific industry; that’s a recruiter for finance and banking, recruiter for IT, recruiter for construction, etc. To get real results out of your job search effort, you should work directly and personally with the recruiter that specializes in your industry.

Resume Sending Tips

When you begin your relationship with a recruiter or a hiring manager, and you want to send your resume, you must follow these resume sending tips in order to increase your chances of getting a response.
