Default Foot in the door

Hi, Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have been trying to seek employment in the UAE for sometime now and it seems to be a little difficult. I have a vast 25 year experience in the catering industry and qualifications to match. My request for advice, is on how to get your foot in the door?

You would think, eh? Having been my first point of call to the majority of agencies, not forgetting some bad ones.

I got my foot in the door by coming to Dubai for 1 month, waking up everyday at 9am and firing CV's left and right all the way up until 5pm!

There's no magic pill, you have to do a lot of emailing and calling and networking, is the only way. Some people have been lucky to find their jobs through job sites but these days that approach alone may not be enough and in some cases may be useless. Is more effective to also approach companies directly, do lots of phonecalls, use linkedin, etc. There's no cookie cutter answer I'm afraid.
