From "vishal dogra" : Hi All,

I want to pose this query in front of honourable senior HR professionals, who have an experience to work overseas. As I am HR fresher, have altogether 2 years of pre MBA experience in admin whereas 8 months of post qualification experience in recruitment and payroll. Recently I am getting mails from some sites regarding opportunities in gulf countries. I've filled questionnaires as demanded by the intermediary site, my current and expected salary(converted into DIRHAM) and after processing my resume and questionnaire they are offering me an opportunity to appear for interviews with four employers(their clients). For this purpose they are asking for certain amount of money as processing fees.

I am very much keen to work overseas in my domain itself, but could not afford to waste my time on fake/irrelavant offers. Pls. suggest the reliable sources(or sites) to apply for these vacancies persists in Dubai or european countries and neccesary steps need to be follow for this process.

Thanks in advance

Warm Regards

hey vishal, i guess if u wanna work abroad u will surely have invest money as processing charges for visa & other formalities. Even I tried alot for it & approached few consultancies providing abroad recruitments.But it dint really worked. Orelse u can apply for work permit for the country u wish to work for & u can go there & search a job which will be bit difficult. Or call on helpline no. (just dial) & ask for the consultancies providing international recruitments.
All the Best :)

Hi Asnshwish & Jog,
Thanks for your wishes. Actually i am keen to go abroad for work so could invest amount of money as per my budget. The confusion in my mind is that I dont have very rich experience in HR domain, irrespective of that if my profile is getting shortlisted(as per the mails I am getting) it is worthwhile to apply for work permit.
As i am a fresher, I want to get into these procedures only when get confirmation of Job rather than go there and search for a job, as it could hamper my present career prospects. As saild by Anshwish I tried on JustDial but it can help to connect with consultancies working for direct immigration and not for providing recruitment abroad. Is there any platform from where i can get authentic source of guidance as rightly said by Mr. Jog, "Licensed recruitment agencies".
Pls. Guide.

Hi Vishal,
You know, this is not so hard to get a job abroad, specially in Gulf Countries. I have one idea, search on internet the list of Gulf's companies of same field in which you do have experience. Call their HR Department and take from them contact details of their Recruitment Agent in Indian Cities. Just get in touch some of them and you will surely get a job within a small period.
Morever, I am herewith attaching Legal Overseas Recruitment Agents Details, which I got from Website of Ministry of Foriegn Affairs of India.

Thanks alot Mr.Anshwish for the consultant list. I will consult all four consultants right after finishing this reply, and will search in google with the keywords suggested by you.
Mr. Mahesh thanks for your advice because some people told me to make a pre payment as it is mandatory for further process, but now I'll keep it in mind as suggestions from experts in Cite HR like you is always proven reliable to me.
Mr. Rashid the legal agents guideline provided by you is definately helpful and your idea to call companies having present opportunties is also very much feasible and have prospects.
Thanks a ton for all your suggestions, guidelines and support.

Hi Vishal,

even I have almost same exp in HR domain as you and last year I got an Offer from Dubai Metro as HR exe. but as my father worked in UAE for a while he told me about the real working conditions in UAE.

Do not give any money accept for Visa processing.

Do not lend your passport to anybody.

Check on websites about the estimated cost of issuance of Visa

You should have a legal letter, or offer letter that you are going to be appointed there.

Make sure there are no hidden terms and relocating to any other place etc.

Make sure there are no mediators, only employer is directly dealing with you.

If possible try to know that whether you will be on payroll of company.

In my case the salary which they were offering was only 5k dirhams in which they were going to deduct money for fooding and accomodation, that too in a humble low class dormitory. However, my frnd told that actual salary offered was around 10k dirhams.

So i rejected the offer.

If you cantell me more details, may be I can give you a better idea.
