Default how professionals are recruited in Dubai?

hey guys,
i have started to work in dubai for a short-term contract, and will leave dubai in August. i am thinking about coming back again, since to me Dubai is quite an international city and offers lots of opportunities.

i have a question for foreign professionals (especially ppl working in trading firms, banks, etc.). How were you employed at the first place? did you apply online directly from your home country? or is it through some personal network?

i know everyone must have their own ways of landing here
I just like to get a general idea of what's going on in local recruitment?

thanks for any suggestion offered.

He is posting in several forums, so not sure if that makes him more or less real.

I was recruited whilst serving a Prison Sentence. By the way, Banks and Trading Firms, do not generally recruit 'Professionals!' - Unless they are Egyptian, with the First Name of 'Doctor!'

landed in Jeddah one time and the Hotel had my name with Dr. infront. I'm an uneducated Northern Oik. Was so impressed I've kept it and it sits on my desk.

Depending on the profession some are trafficked.
