Do employers generally fly potential candidates out to Dubai? Based on my resume, what are the chances of an employer flying me over for an interview?

It is quite common for employers to fly potential employees out to the Middle East. Some companies prefer candidates to travel at their own expense and some international companies may hold interviews in your home country. It is your choice if you wish to claim travelling expenses from your potential employer; you can do so at the initial interview process.
What is the average length of time it takes to secure a job, starting from the initial time of the application?

The time required in order to secure a job is dependent on many factors such as availability of opportunities, suitability of your candidature, etc. Although it is difficult to quantify the timeline, some candidates have secured employment through JID within a month.

How will I be notified if an employer is interested?

Employers can get in touch with you through e-mail or over the phone, which is why we strongly recommend keeping your contact information up-to-date at all times. Employers also have the option of contacting you through the One Click Interview section. If an employer sends you a message, you will receive an email notification, then, once you log into your profile, you can go to the One Click Interview section and click on new message. This feature would be enabled only once you have completed your registration.
