Dear Arun,
Recruitment agencies play a major role in recruitment here in Dubai as all the top companies recruit through agencies.
Also companies advetise regarding their vacancies in the local news paper, overseas recruitment is not common especially in HR as companies prefer to take people who are aware of the labour laws and visa procedures etc..
Summer is not the right time here as most people are on vacations so recruitment is slow, also during ramadan it is slow as the working hours are reduced, the ideal time would be between October to April.
I recommend you to come on visit visa look for a job then you can change your visa stqtus from visit to employment.
All the best!!

As far as I know its no big hazzle to get hold of a job in Dubai if you have the right experience.
So if anyone is really interested in getting a job in Dubai take leave from your company from 1 to 3 months come to Dubai on visit with your updated CV and contact all the recruitment agencies through email or in person the contact details are in the net itself.
Also apply by seeing in Appointments and classifieds where the companies advertise for their job vacancies.
If you feel happy to be here and a good offer grab it.
And this is what I feel because luck is something you need here to survive.

companies here sometimes do overseas recruitment. They mostly have tie ups with other rec consultants placed in India. Adv are put up in newspapers and this is how one sometimes gets a job here in Dubai..
Another way is what lizancy has said which is one of the best ways...
Wiht regards to knowing the laws checkthis web site out
Gulfnews: Home and then go to 'ASK THE LAW'
A lot of people post their concerns there..
All the best !!
