Default Gulf CV Specialists

Hey Guys and Gals:

I'm trying to find out if this is a legitimate company. I don't know if I should send them the $348 USD they want to start my CV paperwork. Does anyone know if these types of companies really work? I'm thinking about relocating to Dubai, in the IT Field as a Desktop Support/Server Support Technician. Has anyone used this company, or know more about this company?

If you do a search about them on here you will find the general opinion is that they are scammers!

you should never pay a recruitment consultant. Any legitimate ones will be paid by the employer seeking staff.

Thanks... but how do I go about getting started? I have no idea what companies or recruitment agencies are there, or who to contact to get the ball rolling! I am brand new to this, so i don't know. Any help is genuinely appreciated! Thanks again!

Great advice, thanks... but i've heard before that when a candidate tries to contact the company directly, they (the company) are less likely to look at your CV, than from an agency (supposedly for lack of keywords on the CV)... any experience (or truth) to that?

not necessarily. and anyway the wiki contains legit agents.
they will tell you if your CV is OK and put you forward for suitable jobs.

they will not ask you for any money!

oh really... some of them will actually TELL YOU if your CV is ok?? .. rather than just deleting it? I was just on the wiki part of the site, but only see a few agencies! .. I may not be doing it right!

That list? That's pretty extensive for a variety of fields for no effort involved...over a 100 agencies to be found.

Bayt and Gulf News are two good places to look. Best bet is to research companies out there and contact them directly.
