In recent years, UAE has been one of the most popular destinations to work due to high-paid jobs, but what are exactly the requirements of getting employed or keeping your job safe in the UAE?
According to the recent report of khaleejtimes.com, in UAE’s job market, the demand for constant learners, adapters of new technologies and fresh knowledge is on the rise. Also, promoting skills in fast-changing dynamics is of paramount importance for employees to keep their jobs safe.
Rabea Ataya, chief executive of jobs portal Bayt.com, has said when we ask employers of what qualities they are looking for among professionals, they say they want someone who is a lifelong learner.
Given to what Ataya has said, employers in the UAE are increasingly eager for those employees who continuously read, attend courses and promote their skills because still working on previous knowledge will easily lead to the extinction of skills in a quicker way.
According to Rohit Manucha, head of human resources at Aujan Coca-Cola Beverages company, behavioral traits are much more important than the skills, as skills can be taught but behavior is something coming from your parents or natural elements which no two different individuals have in common. Therefore, the behavior of adaptability of analytical ability, constantly learn, adapt and evolve is what employers expect from the young generations
Apart from these, Ataya during a recent interview with Khaleej Times has put forward the role of artificial intelligence in the workplace. He has talked about the pervasive use of AI to hire and retain people and help improve the performance of employees due to the fact that it can benefit the performance of employees, recommend actions and help organizations upskill the recruitment process
Therefore, AI will definitely affect people’s jobs and force them to look for new jobs, and this is maybe the reason why jobs related to technology and computer science has gained such popularity in the UAE. As well as that, young generations studying at universities are highly aware of the pivotal role of AI in the future, and the fact that there is a huge demand for special talents in the workplaces in not-too-distant future.
