Recruitment Village, a specialized recruiting service that helps match job seekers to hiring managers and recruiting agents who offer diverse employment positions, steps up its efforts to help more UAE nationals find the right employment opportunities by creating a vital platform — a database of CVs — that can make recruitment processes faster and more successful. This service proves to be beneficial now, more than ever, as the UAE government calls for greater focus on the goal of helping more UAE nationals find work in the private sector.

According to a Gulfnews.com article, Dr. Abdullah Mohammad Al Shaiba, head of specialist training at the National Emergence Crisis and Disaster Management Authority, urged the private sector to aim toward providing "at least 200,000 job opportunities within the next 10 years to employ around 100,000 to 200,000 UAE nationals aged 15 to 60." Presently, only around seven percent of Emiratis are working in the private sector; this means that there are quite a lot of potential employment opportunities that can be made available to citizens — but it can only be truly maximized if the workforce is sufficiently equipped to meet the needs of employers across different fields.

For a large number of UAE nationals who are finding it difficult to find work, Al Shaiba advised asking themselves what employers are looking for in a candidate. The traditional way of thinking is that the right educational background can guarantee recruitment; Dubai employers, however, would be quick to share that this is no longer the case in these modern times.

“A university degree may be insufficient to land your dream job; however, practical skills and experiences can definitely make you a desired applicant,” Al Shaiba said.

It would be the right step forward, Al Shaiba added, for higher education programs to help prepare students for the labor market. "Theoretical knowledge is not enough to achieve productive results. Practical knowledge should also be developed by helping students to use tools or equipment to perform tasks that are related to their field of study."

Keeping these targets in mind, Recruitment Village designed its database precisely to help job seekers present their relevant qualifications in a platform where the top recruitment agencies in Dubai are sure to find them. After providing basic personal information and obtaining unique login information, a job seeker can begin completing their Recruitment Village CV. Here, they can describe their educational background and practical skills and experiences in detail to illustrate how they can be effective at specific positions.

The Recruitment Village platform also caters to an extensive list of recruitment agencies in Dubai. These employers and agents can sign up for one of the Recruitment Village packages and quickly gain full access to the database of job seeker CVs that can direct them toward the best candidates for the positions they need to fill.

"You don’t need to be a sociologist to know that having the security of a strong community behind you is very important — especially in today’s hard-nosed, urban job market," said a Recruitment Village representative. "Let the good people of Recruitment Village offer help and support if you’re a job seeker and successful applicants if you’re an employer. We give you the ability to quickly connect in our online Market Square.

"Our helpful, friendly community takes the hassle out of the recruitment process for employers, too, acting as a Flat Fee Recruiting Service that bridges the gap between online advertising and traditional agency recruitment."
