The "need to have" qualities are basically those qualities in a candidate that are mandatory for the position. The "nice to have" qualities are those qualities that can add value to the candidate's suitability. For instance, an extra certification or additional knowledge about a particular application can be regarded as “nice to have” qualities. It is important to understand that the “nice to have” qualities will help only if the candidate has the “need to have” qualities. Many candidates assume that the “nice to have” qualities are an assurance or guarantee of success in the interview. Thon a wrong perception, and candidates need to pay proper attention to the job description before applying for positions. Specific requirements for the position As per the experts in agencies that are involved in labor supply Dubai, the candidate needs to pay extra attention to the specific requirements of each position. For instance, the required and desired educational qualifications, the mandatory work experience, certification and accreditation, and special/unique skill sets.

Candidates who repeatedly apply for jobs that are not suitable will end up being disregarded for other positions also.

This will be possible only when the candidate applies for suitable prepositions by understanding the job description properly. Fulfilling all the requirements of the recruiter Recruiters who specialize in labor supply Dubai are known to use techniques for the purpose of filtering out candidates.

Similarly, recruiters require applicants to respond to certain questions in the application. It is, therefore, necessary for job aspirants to read the job description and requirements thoroughly before applying.
