GCC jobseekers can boost their prospects with strong work experience and knowledge of the local ICT market, according to a newly-released study by Clarendon Parker Middle East.

The study also found that bilingual staff are better equipped for a working environment like Dubai and can add value to their employers.

Bernie Luby, legal and communications manager, Clarendon Parker Middle East, explains: "A few years ago, candidates who matched 50% or more of a job description would be considered for an open position. Now candidates are required to match up to 95% of the job requirements before even being granted an interview."

Clarendon Parker also says that increased competition for skilled ICT staff is driving up salaries - for example, in multinational telecoms firms.

The recruitment services firm, based in Dubai Internet City, is exhibiting at GITEX Technology Week as part of the DIC Pavilion.
