1st way: Assignment Abroad News Paper – Overseas Assignments
If you are living in Mumbai or nearby cities from where, you can come to Mumbai within 4-5 hours and only if your profile is related to Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering or Electrical Engineering, this News Paper is treasure for you.
However, if your profile is different than which has mentioned above, don’t waste your time on reading this point and move to 2nd way directly.
Below image shows how this news paper looks like.
What this News Paper is about:
This news paper basically shows Face to Face interviews happening at “Mumbai based Dubai Job Consultancies'” There are more than 100 Dubai Job Consultants at Mumbai where Gulf Companies HR come from Gulf to Mumbai for Face to Face Interview. All such Interview details are available in Assignment Abroad News Paper.
This News paper comes every Wednesday & Saturday and is available on internet on paid basis so that you don’t have to worry for bringing it from your morning paper delivery boy as it is not available for all locations.
In each paper, more than 500 Job openings gets posted. 95% Job openings are of worker, technician and supervisor level category and 5% of Engineer Levels.
Subscription Charges of Assignment Abroad News Paper:
As said earlier, it is on paid basis and subscription charges are as below.
- 1 Year Subscription charges – Rs. 975 /-
- 6 Month Subscription charges – Rs. 500 /-
- 3 month subscription charges – Rs. 350 /-
You can prefer for 6 month subscription as mostly you will get job within 3-5 months so no need to subscribe for entire year.
Interview Location through Assignment Abroad News Paper:
Interview location for all jobs mentioned in this news paper is Mumbai only which means that you will have to go to Mumbai for the interview. If you cannot go to Mumbai, no need to subscribe for this news paper.
Also note, just by checking job post and interview date, do not go directly for the interview. First call to that consultancy and confirm with him. Few consultants provide Interview pass which they check on interview date and only those who are having valid pass are allowed for the interview. Also note, consultant address and interview venue can be different
You can also check with consultant the list of documents which are required for interview. If he do not provide; don’t worry, below I am giving list of documents which are required for the interview.
List of Documents required for Face to Face Interview:
All documents listed below are mandatory to bring at the time of Face to Face Interview. You will have to carry original documents and minimum 2 sets of photocopies.
- Minimum 5 passport size photos
- Mark-sheet of 10th Standard
- Mark-sheet of 12th Standard
- Degree/Graduation Certificate
- Mark-sheets of your Degree/Graduation all years (If any missing, it is okay)
- Experience Certificates of all previous employers
- Appointment Letters of all previous employers. (If any missing, it is okay)
- Last 6 month salary slips of last employer (at least last 3 months are required)
- Adhar Card, PAN Card
- Voter ID card, Driving License, Domicile Certificate (if not available, it is okay)
Once you go to interview, you will see around 50 -150 other guys who are also came for the interview. So, there is competition as well.
How they take interview:
Please note, it is on spot selection process and if you gets selected and accept the offer, they will take your passport in their custody. The reason why they took your passport is that they provide you VISA freely and they are going to spend money on your VISA. So, they need assurance that you are going to Dubai for their Job.
Below video shows how interview happens at Mumbai based consultancies.
Please note, there are lots of cheaters, who will ask money from you and you will get cheated. No need to spend any money for Mumbai based small consultants. There are 5% consultants who are genuine and ask for money initially itself; however, it is always confusing to whom we could trust. So it is better, not to go for paid consultants when 95% are free.
This was all about our 1st way to find Jobs in Dubai for Indians. Below is 2nd way.
2nd way: Naukri.com India website
Naukri.com, as you might know, is India’s No. 1 job website and trust me it is easy to find Jobs in Gulf Countries from naukri.com. All India based Gulf consultants are continuously searching for candidates at naukri.com. All types of profile holders can get job easily through naukri.com. My first Gulf Job was through naukri.com.
Firstly, you should always ensure that your naukri profile is updated as recently updated profiles reflects first for recruiter. Secondly, please mention your Desired Work Location as – Dubai, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain etc. at naukri.com so that recruiters can reach you with these location keywords.
Benefits of using naukri.com is that together with Gulf Jobs, you can also search Indian jobs at same platform.
Interview Process through naukri.com is as below.
- Mostly you will get E-mail from consultant on your E-mail ID registered at naukri.com and he will ask you to provide your documents for evaluation. If you gets shortlisted, they will arrange your telephonic interview. Few times they take Skype interview as well. So, create your Skype account and be ready with Skype ID. Few consultants will ask you to to visit their office and give Face to Face Interview as well. You will have to bring all documents which I have listed in 1st way of “How to find jobs in Dubai for Indias”
- Many Dubai companies calls you directly as well and they take either Telephonic or Skype Interview and select you. This is very easy way of selection.
Again, do not spend any money online as you will receive lots of spam E-mails by fraud people.
3rd way: LinkedIn
My 2nd Gulf Job offer I got through LinkedIn.com and these days, many recruiters are shortlisting candidates through their LinkedIn profile. Even many recruiters who get your profile by some other source, asks you to share your LinkedIn profile. So, please create your LinkedIn profile in detail and if you are posting something which is related to your Job Profile at LinkedIn, it will add an advantage as recruiters these days going through in detail at LinkedIn profile as it helps them to understand what kind of person you are.
Interview process through LinkedIn is same as of naukri.com. Either consultant or direct company will call you.
4th way: Facebook
This may sound you odd, but yes, you can find “Jobs in Dubai for Indians” at Facebook also. There are lots of Facebook pages available where daily they post lots of job opportunities. All of us have Facebook account and you just need to like all such Facebook pages related to Gulf Jobs and daily you can see opportunities there. One of my friend who is Elevator technician got a job through Facebook advertise pages.
Mostly all job postings on Facebook are of consultants. Do not expect direct call from Gulf Company through Facebook.
Top profile jobs like Finance Analyst, Sales Manager, Project Manager etc are also gets posted on various Facebook pages. So it recommended to like such pages. You can also join Facebook groups related to Dubai Jobs. Before liking any page, first check what jobs are getting posted at that page and if they matches with your profile, you can like them. Same you can do with Facebook Groups.
5thway: Asiapower Overseas Employment Services
This is comparatively big Job consultancy having it’s head office at Mumbai and branches Delhi, Chennai, Vadodara, Kochi and Bangladesh, Nepal too. You can find it’s Job-advertisements at Assignment Abroad News Paper as well which we have discussed in Point No. 1
This is trusted paid service and very costly – Rs. 11,800/Year subscription charges which means before even applying for any Job, you have to pay them for a year and only if your profile is related to Civil/Mechanical/Chemical/Electrical/ONGC, you can subscribe for this. You can view job openings at their website freely and if you see that jobs getting posted are relevant to your profile, you can think of subscription.
I do not recommend to invest this much money initially, however if you are financially good and in hurry or if you are waiting since long to get a job in Dubai , you can think of subscription. Before subscription, please call them and ask that if you do subscription now, would you have to pay additionally after getting Job Offer.
Their interview process is same like other small consultancies. Once you do subscription, you have to create your profile and start applying for Job and if your profile gets shortlisted, they will call you to visit their office for Face to Face interview.

7th way: India Based Gulf Job Consultancies
In this article -“How to find jobs in Dubai for Indians”, you have heard this name – “consultancy” many times and the reason is 70% Jobs of Dubai from India are through them. Even AsiaPower and Jerry Verghese are consultancies. Only they are comparatively big, hence categorized separately to get more attention.
There more than 100 Dubai Job consultancies available in India and majority of them are from Mumbai.
Below are some Top Consultancies which you can trust easily.
- G Gheewala Human Resources Consultants – www.ggheewala.com
- H.R. International – www.hrinternational.in
- Ambe International – www.ambeinter.com
- ASMACS – www.asmacsgroup.net
- Soundlines – www.soundlinesgroup.com
Apart from these, there are many more good consultancies available. All Mumbai based consultants names you can find in Assignment Abroad News Paper which we have discussed in Point No. 1.
What you have to do with these consultancies:
What you have to do is, just call these consultants one by one and ask for available job opportunities. If any opportunity available, they will tell you in phone call itself or they will ask you to send your resume to their Email ID. Most of them do keep your resume in their data base and if any opportunity in future, they will notify you by sending E-mail to your E-mail ID mention in your resume.
Also, if you are visiting Mumbai for any interview, keep 10 resume and document sets with you. There are many consultancies which are located at same area in Mumbai and you can directly visit their office and submit the resume. I have done this in my initial days. The list of documents which you must carry is same as mentioned in 1st way.
8th way: Specific Job-Websites for Gulf jobs
Similar to naukri.com, there are other specific Gulf Country websites which are only for Gulf Jobs. You can create your profile at any one of them and start searching for Jobs.
Below are best 5 Job websites where all Dubai Jobs gets posted.
- www.bayt.ae (Most famous and considered as Middle East’s No. 1 Job Site)
- www.efinancialcareers-gulf.com (Specially for Finance, Banking, IT jobs)
You don’t need to create profile at all these website as it will be time consuming to manage all. I suggest along with naukri.com, you can use one single website out of above five.
You will have to go either through telephonic interview or Skype interview, if your profile gets shortlisted. No need to pay any money through these websites.
9th way: References
This is most easiest way, but at the same time very far from most of us. If any of your friend or relative is working in Dubai and if he refers you in his company, chances of you getting selected are high.
All Dubai employers prefers candidates through references as it provides more trust for them while selecting.
If you do not have any friend or relative who is working in Dubai, you can search for Dubai employees at LinkedIn and you can send them professional messages. Believe that there will be someone who will help you.
