All across the country, a new surge in job creation is paving the way for corporations to expand their personal by an exponential rate. This new wave of job creation is, in turn, helping these same corporations to simultaneously streamline and fine tune the manner by which they hire their employees. A new series of corporate agents, known as executive search firms, is emerging with the master plan of changing the manner in which companies procure their new personnel. These changes are destined to have far reaching effects.
The Way Corporations Hire Employees Is Changing In A Radical Fashion
The very manner by which corporations hire their new employees is thus changing in a palpable and radical fashion. As a result of this sea change in employment doctrine, the average intake of new corporate officers is not only being expedited, but also redefined, as new employees with increased skill sets and qualifications are joining these companies, bringing their vision and expertise to the table.
Focusing The Corporate Search On New Talent With Increased Qualifications
A new firm launched by the same Jason Hanold Chicago knows and trusts from earlier corporate ventures is a perfectly good example of this new phenomenon. Mr. Hanold has been among the leading pioneers of the new boom in executive search firms that has taken off all across the nation. Of course, Mr. Hanold is only one of the new breed of corporate executives who are serving American (and international) corporations in this fashion.
Helping Corporations To Pick And Choose Long Term Winners
These new firms are changing not only the way that corporations pick and choose from the immense pool of qualified employees, but also the very nature of the experience and skill sets that these employees are advertising in their quest to be considered by the company in question. As such, they are introducing an exhilarating new precedent into the mainstream of American corporate hiring practices, and the results are speaking for themselves. The hiring pool has not increased, but has also stepped up its game.
The End Result Is A Newly Qualified And Confident Field Of Labor
The end result of this new corporate hiring environment is sure to be a new qualified and confident field of labor. Executive search firms are doing their part to ensure that the candidates who apply for membership in an American corporation are some of the sharpest, best trained, and able employees in the nation. This new found confidence and pride is doing wonders to reshape the way that American companies assess the value of their potential employees, and it is bound to have a long term positive effect on the economic output of the nation.
Want a job in Dubai?
But, competition for employment is fierce and if you want to land the job of your dreams, you need the right approach.
These 5 steps will tell you how:
Step 1: Do your research
Giving up your current job for a new one in Dubai is not like relocating to another British city. The differences in culture, climate and business practices are significant, particularly if you plan on relocating with children.
Before even thinking about looking for work, research the Dubai lifestyle thoroughly to make sure you and your family will be able to integrate and enjoy the experience.
Once you’re sure Dubai is the city for you, research the industry you intend to work in and the major players who operate within it, thoroughly.
Read the website news, mission statement and overview of each company as well as their vacancy listings. Review what their clients, customers and competitors have to say about them and then proactively follow their social media news feeds to keep abreast of developments and opportunities.
Step 2: Update Your Profile
It’s no longer sufficient to simply send a cover letter and a CV to an employer or recruitment agency.
According to the social media monitoring service, Reppler, 91% of employers asked in a survey admitted to screening job applicants’ Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts to check their suitability for employment.
Use everything you learned in Step 1 and apply it here.
Tailor your online profile to build a professional image by proactively commenting upon, discussing and sharing information and news about your industry.
It demonstrates that you’re a genuine, motivated and knowledgeable candidate, which will impress potential employers and help you to build a network of contacts.
Step 3: Use a Reputable Recruitment Agency
Most businesses in Dubai rely on recruitment agencies to source high-calibre personnel. If you’re relocating from the UK, look for one with experience of helping expats to make that transition.
Look for an agency which specialises in your particular field of expertise and if you have any friends or work contacts in Dubai already, ask them for recommendations.
If a recruitment agency asks you for any sort of fee, avoid them at all costs.
Step 4: Visit and Network
If you decide to visit Dubai to conduct your job search in person, plan your time and your budget carefully; it’s not a cheap city to spend time in so make sure your time is productive.
Pack any clothes, portfolios of work or certificates that are suitable for an interview and if you can, schedule meetings with reputable recruitment agencies and potential employers before you arrive.
By contacting them in advance, you’re more likely to be invited to one of the many social networking events that take place during your stay.
Step 5: Be Prepared for Disappointment
The job market in Dubai is growing but remains incredibly competitive. Although British expats have a good reputation in the region, people from all over the world are trying to seize opportunities there too.
It takes real tenacity to deal with rejection letters or unsuccessful interviews but successful candidates are proactive candidates so stick at it.
