One of the key elements in preparing for a job interview in the UAE is to research the company you have applied to. If you have applied through a specialist recruitment consultant, you will be able to get valuable information from them about the prospective employer and the job specifications.
During the interview, it might not be a case that you are asked outright about the information you have about the employer; however, in your answers to certain questions, your keenness towards the job and the company will make you appear more confident and will surely impress the interviewer. For instance, you may include the employer history, products offered by the company, future plans and projections, and sales figures.
There are numerous sources on information about all UAE companies. You can search on the internet – company website, profiles on job boards, social and professional media pages. You may also look through databases of the recruitment companies.
For a newly established business, a lot of company information might not be available. In that case, having an in-depth knowledge of the industry will be useful. You may also talk about company’s goals and demonstrate how your professional ambitions will align with those of the employer.
