Honestly speaking, Dubai has a very hard job market right now. I took about 5 months to find a job in dubai and I only found it through my family here. Same goes for my girlfriend she looked for a job for almost 9 full months on all the online platforms she could find. The only way she found a job was because my brother put her in touch with a friend.

To further this point you have to understand our history. I am an Indian expat from a relatively wealthy family who has made Dubai their home for 30+ years. My girlfriend is a white american from Texas. Both of us have university degrees from the USA and good work experience.

If you want some major advice I'll tell you one thing. DO NOT come to Dubai on a visit or tourist visa and start looking for a job. It will take way too long and you will spend all your money. Another piece of advice would be to never fall for a CV distribution scam. There are a couple in this city. They will take your money and never call back.

It will take a lot of time to find a good Job in Dubai. If you have the right skills and experience you can find a good job. If not your looking at jobs that pay very little. When I started working here in Dubai I had a starting salary of 3000 AED. In the USA my first job was paying me about 3000 USD. Just be patient. Keep applying online and you will find a job sooner or later. But while you are looking for a job just keep working and building skills to put on that resume. I see a lot of people post for help “ please sir I am looking for work in Dubai”. This will never work no one will ever hire you through informal social media platforms.

In my opinion if you want to work in Dubai you need to do the research and find the companies to apply to. Make sure you go straight to their career platforms. I find it works much better than using job channel on Linkedin some popular job channel on TikTok also popular dubai job channel on YouTube
My older brother works as a locksmith in the UAE, and he earns more than I do in the US. But as far as I know, it isn't easy to find a job in the UAE now because so many people from different professions want to move there. I'm a car locksmith, so my profession will not be in high demand there. My brother moved to the UAE 10 years ago, but it was much easier to find a job in Dubai than now. Although, I found information that the Associated Locksmiths of America (ALOA) administer certification exams. I may pass the exams and improve my skills to become a more in-demand specialist.
