What Dubai Recruiters Are Looking for In Candidates

A recent article in Emirates247.com has outlined the top qualities that UAE recruiters look for in a candidate, and it seems that you need more than just a flashy degree. While a degree and a MBA can help to set you apart from the competition it is not the golden key that will land you the job. UAE employers are now looking for ‘soft’ skills too.

So, what are these soft skills? They are things like:

  1. Cultural Awareness
  2. Arabic capabilities
  3. Regional understanding
  4. Cooperative
  5. Flexible Team Players
  6. Able to manage a team
  7. Excellent Communication skills

These are the kind of skills that modern candidates need to possess to set themselves apart from the competition in the Dubai job hunt. To read this article in full, please visit emirates247.com.
