here are hundreds, if not thousands, of websites advertising jobs in Dubai.

Many appear to be designed to primarily attract traffic to generate
advertising revenue for the website owner rather than actually support a
Dubai employment agency try and help you find a job. The difficulty is trying
to figure out the difference as it's easy enough to produce a professional
looking website and pad it out with job listings that are repeated on many
other websites, and/or are out of date or non-existent. This is a list of the
best or top job search websites we've heard of, and some to be wary of,
linked to forum topics where you can post your feedback if you have had
experiences with them (good or bad) and read feedback from others (or
start a new topic in the Work in Dubai forum if there isn't one already).
Website links are at the bottom of this page. - Based in Dubai, claim over 20,000 employers use their site.

Job-hunters register, post a CV, and contact employers directly. Appears to be

free for job-seekers (employers pay to advertise job or search CVs). Covers
the GCC countries. Website clear and straightforward to use, can search and
view jobs without registering. In June 2007, said they have over 1.5
million CVs stored, and launched a new CV search tool called InstantMatch.
Update 03 Feb 2008 - said the rates for employers to post a job
would be reduced to $150 for the cheapest advertisement, from 01 Feb 2008.
Often seen criticised in forums but posts appear to be more likely from
competitors than disgruntled clients. Not to be confused with
which is not a job website or online recruiter. - popular online classified ads website (started 2005-2006)

with section for jobs. - Middle East jobs and information, sign up as recruiter or

job seeker. Also a collection of research reports related to jobs in the Middle
East. - ITP are a business and IT portal/news service based

in Dubai. You can register with ITP recruitment on their website as looking for
jobs but job listings (if they have any) are not obvious. Nor is there much
other useful information about the recruitment process with them. (forwards to in the UAE) - launched

its job search portal in August 2006 for the GCC and Jordan and Lebanon. Well
known internationally (operates in 25 countries). Annoying popups when
checked August 2007. - an Abu Dhabi government website so should be more

reliable and useful than the many other job websites around. (TEN jobs) - their FAQs say they are not a

recruitment agency. You register, upload your CV and/or apply for jobs
advertised on TEN jobs (can view without registering). No Terms of Use page
obvious, presumably there's no charges for job-seekers. Job vacancies are
posted by companies and recruitment agencies who pay about 35 dhs - 60
dhs per job posting. They announced a tie-up with Clarendon Parker Middle
East (CPME) in July 2007. CPME seems to be one of the better recruitment
agencies in Dubai.

on the internet, and what to watch out for.

One of the best signs that a job website is unlikely to be useful, or could
even be just plain fraudulent, is if there is online advertising on the web site.
Online advertising in itself is not bad (after all, websites such as ours that
provide free information have to cover their costs somehow), but online job
websites that rely on advertising instead of commissions from employers for
income, will be focused on getting web traffic from all the people searching
for "jobs in Dubai", not on providing genuine job offers. And that means a
different business model which does not necessarily benefit the job-searcher. - online general classified ads website (started 20052006) with jobs section, no fees to pay. Can't seem to apply for a job though
(website error when attempted 22 June 2006). The name sounds a bit silly,
but as far as we know, Dubai Donkey are for real. Listed here because it is
often seen as a recommended job hunting website. - not a job website, just spam (at least, it was when
checked August 2007) - related to and/or Charges fees to job seekers. - they say employers can post jobs free, and no

charges for job seekers.

www.e-jobsearch - submit your CV online and they claim to send it to

thousands of recruiters to make a match. Based in UK and Dubai. Website
says their service is free for recruiters so it's not clear how they make money
without charging applicants (no further information found on website - 22
June 2006). - according to some, charges for rewriting a CV in

"Dubai Style", which just sounds bizarre to us. (or - a search engine for jobs, Career

Jet searches other job websites and collects all their listings on the careerjet
websites. - forwards to the Dubai Employment

Board (probably not a Dubai government agency) website - not a recruitment agency but site where job hunters

can post CVs and search through jobs advertised by employers. According to
their website, job seekers don't pay, unclear how much employers are
charged to advertise. Job applications appear to be online via website, or
direct to employers. - separate page due to long list of associated websites, or

see the forum topic - website doesn't say one way or the other if job search fees
charged as far as we can tell, but email received in May 2011 says they do
not charge fees to job applicants. - see comments and additional related websites below - they say free for employers and job seekers. - another clever forum spammer with a website with

ads copied from Gulf News etc. - according to website, been around since 1993

(website looks like it was designed around then). You're requested to email
your CV as a word document. A rather outdated way of operating online.
Covers the Middle East and some of Asia - (has a more upto-date site design) seems to be for India but you can find Middle East jobs on
it too. Not clear if job seeker or employer or both pay. - website itself looks like Laazi could be a reasonable choice,

not investigated any further. - gets an 'Excellent' rating from the Dubai

Employment Board, which makes it a questionable agency in our opinion. - online portal for jobs in Algeria, Belgium, China, France,

Oman, Pakistan, Tunisia, as well as the United Arab Emirates, and other
countries. Even the Arctic and Antartica are in the search criteria (but no
results when we tried to search for a job there). Mawaride was established in
2004 and claims to be the "largest growing job portal", whatever that means.
It's either free to post your CV, or they don't tell you what it costs until after
you've submitted your CV. Employers pay $115-$180 per job posting, or
$6000 for unlimited postings. Listings are active for 30 days. Jobs seem to be
be mostly available for India, Egypt, UAE, and a handful in other Asian,
European, and North African countries. Total of about 100 job listings when
checked August 2007. - website for Nadia's recruitment, one of the more

established recruitment companies in Dubai. - we thought SOS recruitment were a good one, but

rated as 'Excellent' by the Dubai Employment Board raises a question mark
for us. - online business portal with classified job advertisements.

Covers UAE and Middle East. Website not loading when checked August 2007. - doesn't seem to be a very popular choice according

to many comments - connected to and/or

Charges fees to job hunters. is a famous, or infamous online job agency,

apparently based in Canada, with a poor reputation for charging clients and
not finding them a job, if all the comments from disgruntled job hunters are
to be believed. There have been critical articles about them in the local UAE
press calling them a scam after some investigations. Some of the websites
that might be associated with are listed below (add a
comment in the relevant forum topic if you have more information): - possibly related to Charges

jobseekers - forwards to - the original Jobs in Dubai website - connected to Charges jobseekers a

fee. - domain registered to same name as the boss.
