Most UAE jobseekers don't know what employers are looking for

Recent study to find out why job seekers are struggling to land a job offer in the UAE and other parts of the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) mentioned that jobseekers failed to know what employers are looking for. The survey mentioned that there’s a very high demand for entry-level positions, with more than half (52 per cent) looking for qualified candidates to fill junior executives and 30 per cent searching for executives. Over 10 percent of companies are looking for director-level applicants across GCC region. In terms of skills, many candidates are lack of skills like creative thinking and problem solving, while 60 per cent pointed to international work experience and 59 per cent highlighted leadership skills.
