It can be overwhelming finding your way around such a completely different culture anyway - but finding your way around a Gulf State job search can be a daunting task without understanding the nuances and quirks that await you out there.

Where do you start?

That’s where our course comes in. We will take you, step-by-step, through the whole process of making the impression you need to make - to land your dream job here, in the Middle East.

Unlike many courses - we concentrate on what makes the difference with UAE jobs - not what you know already. Our course is totally unique and is not something that can be found somewhere on the internet or in books. It is the result of 25 years of experience in recruitment and headhunting in the Middle East where we have seen common mistakes repeated time after time.

We have seen so many really great candidates fail because they weren’t aware of local culture, rules, and regulations - so we created this easy to follow course to hold your hand through those early days until you get used to the way things are done in the Gulf States.

Over many years of working in recruitment in the Middle East, we know that job seekers repeat the same mistakes time and time again when they apply for jobs.

We have seen really good candidates losing time and money - and in a place like the Gulf, with such expensive living costs - this can be disastrous.

Our course is designed to overcome these problems by addressing …

The lack of knowledge of the Gulf countries labour laws - and covers new rules and regulations which have been brought in and could allow candidates to protect themselves. In any conflict with an employer, candidates often find that they do not know their rights in the country and are totally confused as to how to sort the situation out.

The course gives current information about the relevant local laws which will let you avoid common misunderstandings with employers - and make you more confident in the workplace.

The lack of market understanding - many candidates are actually signing contracts with salaries so low that they do not even cover their living costs.

This course will run through the current state of the job market and give tips on how to negotiate the highest pay possible - for any given job - enabling you to earn good money while working here, and allowing you to save for life while you do.

The lack of interviewing skills - most candidates have no idea how other interviewees are answering questions or how the strongest candidates are performing during their interviews and salary negotiations.

Our course is the only one which provides benchmarking information so you can compare your performance with others in similar roles. Recruiters do not normally share their results with candidates.

We are fortunate in having a headhunter from one of the top 10 recruitment companies in the world as our speaker on this course. During his 25 year career, Matthew Lewis has interviewed thousands of candidates – from the weakest to the strongest.

Here he shares the best practices in answering questions during interviews, and which strategies to choose when dealing with different formats - from a full, multi-person, panel interview - to an individual interview with a CEO.

The lack of prioritising knowledge - setting the wrong priorities for job searches can, ultimately, cost candidates many days of lost time. Looking for jobs on websites with bad reputations, or on those which are completely ineffective is pointless.

Many candidates also write resumes/CVs in a way which does not make them visible to the initial job screenings - so they get completely ignored – no matter how good the candidate.

It is frustrating that such great candidates are losing time and money – and do not succeed.

The course will save you this time and money by showing you the shortest, and most effective way to find a job – and successfully land it.

The lack of inside information - there are many other areas - too numerous to mention - where candidates fall down simply because they do not have an insight into what they are doing, and are going in blindly, making mistakes which could be easily avoided with the right guidance.

Our course is designed by professionals who are experienced in the field of recruitment in the Middle East – and addresses all of the common issues which trip up those who are unprepared.

Our comprehensive course will guide you through the maze and give you a top chance of getting your dream job.
