Top skills that can get you best jobs in UAE

Looking for a high paying job with all the additional perks? If yes, your education and experience might not be enough in today’s evolving and competitive job market to make you a perfect candidate. What they say – a mix of skills will make you the best fit!

Be it a company or an employee, everyone today is striving hard to be the best in the market. As an aspiring candidate all you need to do is master the trick by acquiring the right kind of skills – technical, soft and some new skills that could make your knowledge more relevant and put you as a more marketable candidate. 

A lot of jobseekers today are unable to find work not only because companies are hiring less, but also because most applicants lack the right set of skills that employers are looking for.

In fact, nearly  seven out of ten (65 per cent) of companies in the UAE and the rest of the region do agree that there is a skills gap in the market, meaning that, despite a high volume of talent looking for jobs today, potential employers are actually finding it difficult to locate candidates that meet their requirements.
