    Please check the web sites below and apply online, they may give you the salary scales also. This is in ascending order considering number of jobs advertised, so try most in the once at the top / / / /Alfuttaim careers /,

    Also try to improve your connections through linkedin, which I feel one of the best ways to land a job. When a job is advertised anywhere, through linked you can SEARCH THE TOP HEADS OF THAT COMPANY AND CONTACT THEM DIRECTLY

    Also since these days everybody apply through the web personal delivery of the CVs also a good option (If you come here)

    For freelancer jobs you could try, or,

    You can try an employment agent in your country also but try only a trusted one

    Also search the web for list of companies in your industry (Eg: If you are a civil engineer get a list of construction companies in UAE, Doctor - Hospitals in UAE, Teacher – Schools in UAE) go to their web sites, go to careers or contacts and apply directly

    Best of luck!!!

    All the jobs listed where? A jobs website? They don't list all the jobs that exist.

    So apply for ANY job, it is always easier to get another job if you are already working and employers will see you are prepared to work rather than sit and be unemployed and it keeps your self esteem up, so you don't become depressed

    Find something else to do with your time that will benefit your job hunting.

    For example - get a volunteer placement or position somewhere. These can add useful life skills to your CV, and show potential employers that you aren't just sitting around (not that you are, but perception etc).

    For example - volunteering in a charity shop is useful for customer interaction, working in a team etc

    Volunteering (getting out the house, seeing people, doing something) will also benefit your mental health, and stop you staring at the screen for at least a few hours a week!

    You may need to lower your search standards and find a lower paying entry level job and work your way up.
