Bad Cv :
One of the Top Worst Dubai jobs seeker mistakes is Badly written cv. Dubai job seekers comes with badly written cv. Let me ask you a question first?
Will you buy a good product with spelling and grammatical error , false information and very bad design. ?
answer is absolute no. then how you will be selected if your cv has grammatical and spelling error. a bad design and format. things are written messy . important information is missing but cv is filled with all unimportant information.
Dubai jobs seeker mistakes are not only making badly written cv/resume but also cover letter. people are not even aware of cover letter and why it is used. Sending cv without cover letter decrease the chances of selecting a candidate

Waiting for calls and no Follow up:
Let me tell you a scenario of common person in Dubai looking for job. You come to Dubai on 3 month visa . you have good cv and cover letter. you send it to man recruiters and companies. Now you are waiting for calls and you are not getting calls from employer.
You are now frustrated and disappointed . is int?
Now what to do now ?
another Dubai jobs seeker mistakes are not poor followup. hr and recruiters are getting thousands of cv and some times they missed your CV . remember human voice is most remembered thing in human life. Go to company reception and tell them you want to meet hr manager regarding value addition in your company. meet the hr manager in positive manner and ask for updates. the way of follow up in company are by emails direct to decision maker and hr of company. by calling hr in easy time and talk positively . or by visiting companies.
Remember many job seekers get their jobs only on the basis of follow up. if you meet their job criteria then do not shy to followup .
Not optimizing your profile:
Let me tell you quickly .
have you used job websites like www.bayt.com & www.gulftalent.com and filled complete detail and not missed a single field ?
Have you made LinkedIn profile and complete profile ?
Have written your professional keyword in above profile ?
if answer is no then you will not get any jobs. chances of getting jobs is now decreased by 50 %. Trend of searching perfect candidates for hr person is changed now. go to all jobs website complete your profile and use professional keywords in you profile like finance professional, cost accountant, Purchase manager etc.
Now a days hr person go to jobs website or LinkedIn for example enter a keyword like cost accountant in search bar and select experience of 10 year. LinkedIn or other jobs website or portal gave them list of cost accountant with 10 year experience . if you used word cost accountant in your profile and your profile is complete then you will get a call from employer.
Never leave a single field in jobs website . complete your profile.
Mistake no. 5
Become Dependent on others ( Relatives also )
If you have sincere and loving relatives in Dubai then you are lucky person. I have seen many cases where relatives gives you false hopes and they never helps you or in some cases they are unable to help you due to many reason( tough job timing, lack of networking, etc).
If you became dependent on others then you have done a big mistakes. Believe in yourself you can find jobs by own. come out of room and find jobs . never trust on any one.
Mistake no. 6
Lack of networking:
in old time people apply online and get jobs now time has changed . many jobs are not advertised in newspaper or any jobs website they are filled with reference. if you have good reference then chances of getting jobs are more.
Dubai jobs seeker mistakes are that they apply online for jobs and do not make or expand their networking. now a days if you have good networking then you have more chances of getting jobs. tell in your network that you are looking for jobs do not shy. make new contacts on daily basis at the end they will give you some thing positive. Become as social as you can. join discussion group on LinkedIn and your attend conference of your professional bodies. you will be contacted by other person. Use your network.
Mistake no. 7
Waiting for miracle:
There is famous quote “God helps those who help them self ” . i have seen many people who wake up early and start praying . I believe in God. God helps people no doubt but if you are not doing effort and praying in front of god then only miracle can give you jobs. let me tell you another strategy. Do your maximum effort and apply on maximum places until your last hour of staying in Dubai comes and on the same time also pray in front of God . God will definitely help you. if you are skilled person , energetic and positive till last hour believe me Dubai will not let you go. I have seen many people in my circle who got jobs in his last day of Dubai. So keep trying.
