The following rules will help the potential employer and thus help you find a better job:

1. Your messages should be in standard English only.

2. The subject should contain the exact job position you are looking for.

3. The message body should contain your standard resume.

4. Remember to include your mobile number or email.

5. Write your present location and visa status.


Any suggestions or/and corrections are welcome.

Well, according to me, the most important thing is how well you fit in the job.

The next thing is how catchy the resume.

discrimination? yes, please... Aug 20, 2005
the guidelines made me smile. sorry, andyba, but this list is real and applicable in an ideal world only...
i know i'm new here, but i've been reading what you guys write and i'm sure my voice would be listened too, no matter seniority :) . i wonder how fast you'll jump at my throat :D
i've joined this forum because i've been looking for a job abroad, and dubai seems to be a good choice, hence the need for real info.
i've been trying to apply online for the jobs advertised there. i soon discovered that i should be located there to maximise my chances of getting employed. but i also found out that it's good i'm a woman, because i could be paid more for "extra work", depending on how much, and how many hours i would dedicate entertaining my prospective boss... then, it doesnt matter that im overqualified as a teacher of english, it only counts that i'm not a citizen of one of the 5 (god-?)chosen countries whose professionals are allowed to make honest money in education: the uk, us, canada, australia, and south africa. oh, yes, and new zeeland sometimes. the arab universities and other education institutes only ask for the right citizenship, no or little experience (!), and "a desire for adventure and flexibility" (job ad)... wild wild east... :D
please take no offense, guys, i've got nothing against the native speakers, but the rest of the world needs jobs too... so i can only work as secretary or personal assistant in dubai, if i want a skilled job. i also found out i need a sponsor, who, luckily enough, needs to agree to let me leave if i feel his attitude or work conditions suck (who invented this NOC?).
but then again, who said the world is or must be a fair place?? especially the arab world... so, be happy those who are males, come from the right country, and can spend some thousands till they get a job there.
i suppose i'll have to search for a sponsor if i still want to work there, right?

Some questions Feb 14, 2006
Would just like to ask some things.

Is is possible or is it a practice in Dubai that some employers hire from outside of their country? I mean, I am currently in the Philippines and would like to apply for a job in Dubai. What are the chances of me getting hired? If they do hire, would the relocation costs be shouldered by the applicant or by the employer? What is the best way for me to get a job there?

Thanks in advance for the response.

Cheers!
