The top ten most popular jobs on LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network, received over 940,000 views in the past year, underscoring the UAE’s status as the leading technology hub in the Middle East.
Four of the most-viewed jobs of 2018, including the two highest ranked, were at technology-related multinational corporations including Amazon (no.1), ABB (no.2), Huawei Technologies (no.4) and Temenos (no.8).
The top spot went to Business Development Manager role at the Amazon, which collected more than 124,000 views. Earlier in March, the American e-commerce giant had clinched the top spot in LinkedIn’s 2018 Top Companies to work for in the U.S., based on reach, engagement, job interest and new hire staying power.
The position of Lead Engineer Railway at ABB came close on the heels of Amazon, with over 121,000 views, followed by Front Office Assistant at Marriott Hotels Dubai Marina Complex with around 115,000 LinkedIn user views.
Property developers Emaar and Majid Al Futtaim also featured on the list, with Arabic Speaking Customer Service Officer and Personal Assistant roles, respectively.
On the findings, Ali Matar, Head of LinkedIn Emerging Markets, Middle East & Africa, said: “It should come as no surprise that the technology industry is the most popular option for UAE jobseekers, especially as the country continues to drive its tech ambitions.
With over 3 million LinkedIn users and 12,000 current job postings in the UAE, we have witnessed more and more professionals looking to the LinkedIn community for their next career move and realizing their aspirations.”
