Many people are getting jobs through LinkedIn, Why aren’t you?!

getting jobs in dubai through linkedin

Here is a ground rule, if you are a professional looking to be employed by anyone, you’ve got to have a LinkedIn profile (if you don’t, then you gotta catch up to 21st century!).

 

If you have a LinkedIn profile, then there is another problem… Maybe you had a thought like this one: “All of these jobs on LinkedIn and I cannot land one! LinkedIn is useless!”

 

First of all, no it’s not. LinkedIn is an amazing platform and tool, you just have to learn how to use it properly.

 

Second of all, You shouldn’t be using LinkedIn to land a job only. It’s a professional platform that allows you to connect with any other professional in the world.

 

You hear stories of people getting job offers and posting their “success stories” on LinkedIn..

 

You see those “viral posts” going all over LinkedIn with hundreds (if not thousands) of comments and Thousands (if not tens of thousands) of likes.

What is going on..? How do these people get noticed on LinkedIn?

 

As a Career Coach, I help my clients get these results and land job interviews in no time. Their LinkedIn profiles become like a magnet that attracts job offers and profile views!

 

Here is a success story of one of my clients talking about how she got reached out to through LinkedIn within 24 hours after I helped her fix her LinkedIn Profile

 

Also, Here is a screenshot of her announcing that she got a job on LinkedIn.

 

 

Three Reasons Your LinkedIn Profile is Not Getting Noticed

 

Today, I want to tell you about the three reasons why your LinkedIn Profile is not getting noticed:

 

Reasons #1 You are connected to the wrong people!

 

This is a common one.. On LinkedIn, you can get connected to ANY person in almost ANY company in the world..

 

And that’s where most people go wrong, they literally connect to ANY person in ANY company in the world…

 

Instead, you need to be strategic about it. You need to have a certain goal in mind and build your network to reach that goal.

 

Example:

 

The most common example is people use LinkedIn to look for jobs (which is not the only reason you should be using LinkedIn anyway!).

 

The people who look for a job should be picky with who they connect with. In other words, when you send a connection request to someone, you need to have a plan in mind of what you need to say to this person.

 

Hint: This person accepting the profile request doesn’t mean anything if you don’t interact with this person and ADD VALUE TO THEM

 

Reasons #2: Your Profile is not Optimized!

 

People don’t pay much attention to this one, although they should!

 

When someone uses certain keywords and search terms to look for candidates on LinkedIn, LinkedIn looks for the profiles that is ranked very well according to the keywords being searched for.

 

Example: If you go now and search for “CFO” in the search box, you will find this:

 

 

Here are the first few results I got…

 

For you to rank for the keyword: “CFO”, you need to make sure it’s mentioned in your LinkedIn profile as many times as possible (without sounding unprofessional or robotic!)

 

Action Step: Decide on 2-3 keywords you want to optimize your profile for and then start looking for places to place them in your profile.

 

 

Reasons #3: You are not pro-active on LinkedIn

 

I live by a simple rule: Dig your well before you are thirsty.

 

This saying tells that you should not ask for a job from a stranger after months of not checking LinkedIn just because “it was not needed”.

 

Instead, you need to be on the platform on daily basis connecting with professionals and finding new professionals to help and serve. These relationships are the reasons you will get your profile found on LinkedIn and get yourself a job that is worth it!

 

In Summary

 

There are a lot of mistakes that people fall into when using LinkedIn and I only mentioned the three that affects the job hunting process.

 

Now, it’s your turn! Go ahead and tell me about your experience on LinkedIn. Do you use it to find jobs only or do you use it on more consistent basis?

Can I get a job in Dubai without a degree?

    Job Searching tips    September 16, 2017

can i get job in dubai without a degree

Can I get a job in Dubai without a degree? 

A common question that every job seeker in Dubai asks is either he will get a job in Dubai without a degree or not. Dubai has huge job opportunities for job seekers. Massive investment in UAE has produces thousands of jobs in Dubai, UAE.  Due to this Reason, many professionals move to Dubai for better jobs. This scenario increases the competition between job seeker. Companies now a day always consider a candidate with highest skills and highest degree. Candidates with no degree face problem in getting new jobs in Dubai, UAE 

But 

There are many factors which can lead the job seekers without a degree to get a good job in Dubai. 

The answer is Yes, you can get a good job in Dubai even if you don’t have any degree. The highest degree for a good job in Dubai is Bachler or graduation degree until you have applied for top management or for a position of CEO, CFO etc. You also need a degree to apply for a technical job like Doctors, Engineers etc.

UAE Government Requirement :

UAE government have not imposed any restriction for the degree. The employer has a description of employee selection. UAE or Dubai government does not any restriction for employee or employer who doesn’t have any degree. 

Many jobs that don’t need any degree those jobs are mentioned below. 

NO Skill No Degree: 

can i get a job in dubai without a degree uae

  1. Drivers: Best job in UAE which can give you handsome salary or you can run your own business with a small investment is Driving. Yes, you don’t need any degree. You can get a driving license from Dubai and RTA will hire you at 5000 AED / Month salary. If you want to earn more than you can buy your own car and drive as captain with hotels, Uber, Careem etc. 
  2. Real Estate Agent 
  3. Waiter 
  4. Labour 
  5. Cleaner 
  6. Delivery Boy 
  7. Cook 
  8. Shopkeeper
  9. Security Guard
  10. Receptionist

People in Dubai can also earn extra money and do Part time jobs in Dubai which can help them to increase their earning level.

NO Degree but have skill :

If you have skills but no degree like if you can develop a website, or write a content or handle the team or can-do marketing or Freelancing, or any skill then you can get your dream job because companies always hire those people who have relevant skills with good experience. I have seen many people who are illiterate but they are a restaurant manager, working in big companies and getting big salaries.  I have seen many people who have skills but no degree earning 15000 AED/ Month. 

  • Web Developer
  • SEO
  • Supervisor
  • PRO
  • chef
  • Plumber
  • Electrician
  • Sales Agent
  • Freelancer
  • Outsourcer
  • Marketer

Yes, in UAE except for some professional companies or other companies with strict rules many companies don’t consider degree for a job what they consider is you know the work or not. If you have relevant skills but not any degree then you should give a try at least one time in Dubai. I am sure if you have good skill and smart then Dubai will never let you go back. Dubai always needs a skilled person. 

How to Find such job in Dubai without a degree ?

The method of finding such jobs is same as for normal jobs. I have mentioned those ways in other articles on our blog.  

Don’t lose hope there are still many jobs where employers don’t look for a degree. Apply now. 

Authority Job regularly publishes such jobs on the website which don’t need any degree.
