How to prepare a resume for Gulf jobs Middle
East jobs
Middle East, especially UAE and the rest of GCC
countries is one of the most developing regions
in the whole world and the job opportunities
created are countless. UAE (Dubai, Sharjah Abu
Dhabi), Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait,
Bahrain and other Arab countries draws
millions of job applicants from all over the
world. The diversity is so vast that, your CV
could be read by an Emirati in one company, an
Indian from the second company or someone from
UK, Philippines or Australia in other companies.
Their mindset varies but they all look for some
common characteristics in a Middle East resume!
Read on, edit your existing CV and
be successful in finding a new job! Good Luck!

Resume is your own personality reflected in 2
pages.
What to include?
1) Name, Telephone number and Email address
Include your Full Name in bold so that the
recruiter reads your name first, followed by
your telephone number and email address.
Telephone number should include the country code
as well you never know who would call you
from any other gulf countries. Email address
should be simple, if you dont have a simple
email address, please make one right away.
Avoid fancy email addresses like
example007j_at_gmail.com or gulfjobseeker_at_yahoo.com
. Remember your email address reflects your
personality too.
2) Photograph, Nationality and Marital Status
A photograph is a big MUST for Middle East job
applications. The recruiter wants to see who you
are. The photograph should be taken in a studio
with a solid background (grey or blue color is
most recommended). You should be in formal
attire (light color shirt, neatly knot tie and
a blazer/suit) in the photograph. Upper chest
and above is the best posture. Remember
to smile. Nobody wants to recruit someone who
doesnt know to smile to their colleagues
and boss. Mention your nationality clearly in
the resume. People from more than 150
countries work in the Middle East. As the number
of localities is very less in number, the
recruiters always look for where you come from.
Marital status is very crucial too. Some
companies might not want to allow bringing your
spouse along with you, as it costs them a lot
for visa charges and accommodation. Marital
status in the resume helps the recruiter and
company get a better idea about you and how to
engage with you in future.

3) Age, Gender and Date of Birth
Yes, You need to mention your Date of Birth as
well as age. Some specific job positions would be
for candidates within a particular age window,
example 29-33. So mentioning your resume would
put you in the eyes of the right recruiter.
Date of Birth will come handy for the company
when they file for your visa and get your
offer letter. So seeing the Date of Birth would
give a mental satisfaction for the employer.
Some jobs are only for men and some only for
women. So including gender in your resume would
be an added advantage.

4) Availability to join and references
All employers wants to know how early could the
candidates join. Companies mostly dont consider
anyone beyond 2 months notice period unless its
a very niche skillset. Anyone who can join
immediately or maximum within a month are the
most preferred candidates. Authentic references
would give your profile strong credibility.
Mention a maximum of two references with their
name, company name, designation, phone number
and email id. Nothing more , nothing less.
However if you do not wish to reveal the
references names initially, you could mention
References available upon request.
5) Visa status/Visa type and Expiry date
Mention the type of visa you are currently on
tourist, visit visa, employment visa etc.
Make sure to mention the expiry date of the visa
too. May Middle East employers tend to process
your application towards the last days of your
visa expiry.
6) Passport number and Expiry date Mention your
passport number and expiry date. All employers
would need to have your passport valid at
least for the next 6 months in order to process
the visa. So mentioning the expiry date would
help you gain recruiters attention. 7) Font
and font size in the resume Use professional
fonts such as Times New Roman or Arial. Do not
use fancy fonts. Also, all the text in the resume
should have the same font. You can highlight your
key features in bold but never use multiple
fonts in the same resume.

8)
Employment History, country of employment Mention
your employment history in chronological order.
Give a brief note of your responsibilities in
each position of every company you have worked
with. Given the trend that Gulf employers look
for Gulf work-experience, do mention the country
of all your employment. If your previous
work-experience is in any of the Gulf countries,
do highlight it.
9)
Education history and attestation status Mention
your education history with courses undertaken
and year of graduation. Most of the Gulf
countries and Middle East employers would require
your educational certificates to be attested by
the Embassy. If your educational certificates
are attested, do mention that in the resume. If
your attestation is in progress, do mention that
as well.
10) Drivers license status and Language
skills If you have driving license for any of the
GCC or Arab countries, do mention that in your
resume. International license is also acceptable
in Gulf countries. Candidates who possess GCC
driving license or international driving license
are likely to get upto 30 more compensation
than the ones who do not have one.
