Trade Fairs

There are many International Trade Fairs being organized in Dubai and the UAE across the year. These business exhibitions and trade expos attract the global "who's who" in each sector and industry.

If you wish to target one or more of these firms for employment, then a good strategy would be to attend the respective trade fairs in your sector/field/industry and try to connect with and network, with the people at the booths/stalls of your favorite employers.

These interactions can lead you to getting in touch with the HR/ Recruitment personnel in those firms. I believe that this is one very smart NETWORKING strategy that can pay off well...

If you are coming to the UAE for employment purposes, then you should time your arrival according to these trade fairs and business exhibitions…
