Quality Cover Letter + CV + Proper Job Search Strategy = Job Search Success

Picture

If you need to find a job in UAE, the first thing you need to do is get a professional CV and cover letter. Do not underestimate the importance of your cover letter. It is a very important document. Without a well-written cover letter that outlines your professional achievements, your CV will simply land in the deleted pile! The reason is that employers get hundreds of CVs. They just can’t go through all of them. If your cover letter doesn’t tell them at a glance how your qualifications, skills, and experience match those required for the job, then most likely your CV won’t be looked at.

So ensure you have a professional, error-free cover letter - placed in the email body - that outlines your qualifications in a hundred or so words (two or three paragraphs, not longer than one page). Your cover letter should be in the standard letter format and should include information about the particular job you are applying for and how you found out about the job. Never send a generic cover letter such as “I am applying for any job that fits my qualifications” or “I am applying for the job of administrator, trainer, accountant, secretary” because such cover letters do nothing for your job search. Recruiters need to know exactly what job you are looking for and how your qualifications match those needed for the job. If your cover letter doesn't do this, it is useless.

Along with your cover letter, you should also have a professional, error-free CV that outlines your qualifications. If you have multiple abilities, you may need to make more than one CV, such as one CV for human resources and another for office administration.

Once you have your cover letter and CV prepared, start searching for jobs that are relevant to your qualifications. This is no easy job. You’ll need to read through the job description, decide on which jobs are right for you and only apply to those jobs. Always apply to each job individually instead of applying to multiple jobs in one email. (Don’t use the BCC function when applying to jobs.) Modify your cover letter for each job you are applying for, based on the information in the job description.

Hopefully with a good job search strategy and professional CV and cover letter, it will be easier to find the job you are looking for.
