When I came to Dubai as a fresh graduate" Major in Business Administration , Minor in Marketing" I had one opportunity and landed a job as a sales executive in the chemical business.

After one year and half , I really don't want to do sales, I want to do something related to my studies in Marketing and I believe the longer I stay in my job the more I am trapped in this segment. Since my experience in Marketing is Zero , I really don't know from where to start, My friends are already searching for me ,but I don't think it's enough.

Should I stick to websites like Bayt,linkedin? is there actual people in recruitment agencies I can talk to?
help/ advice would be appreciated.

In reality, your best opportunities should be coming from the contacts in suppliers and customers that you have met in the time you have been here.
I lost count of the opportunities that have been presented to me whilst working here.
It is always the case that it is easier to find a new job when you are currently employed - it makes you less desperate and as you are already working, more employable.
It also gives you a chance to see how the companies that you are coming in contact with work - from the morale and interaction with their existing employees.
