If you are new to UAE this type of process are advisable to you, aside from the chances of getting hired on the spot, you can also increase your professional connections giving you referrals for other available job opportunities they know.
On top of that, another way to increase your chance of landing a job is to walk-in randomly to companies, however you need to be cautious as some business towers are not allowing jobseekers to visit companies specifically if you are in Dubai, we suggest taking a photo (if allowed always ask permission from the lobby guard) of the lists of companies in the building lobby, search for its website through google or any other search engines and apply online, if you are in Abu Dhabi -the capital of UAE you can visit almost all the business towers since most are welcoming, just don’t forget to inform the lobby guard though, many recruiters are also impressed with the initiative of the jobseekers to walk-in personally to their premises as this leaves them impression of the jobseekers interest, and seriousness to find a job.
There are several job search engine available in the market today and most of them has two offers, One is you can register as a normal jobseeker and second, as a premium jobseeker.
