I am planning to apply to Dubai office very soon and need some advice related to what's the best mode to apply. To give a background I moved to Dubai about a year back and don't have network within the MBB in UAE. I see following three ways to apply:
1. Apply directly on the firms' websites
2. Apply through friends working in MBB ( working at a junior associate/associate level) but in offices of my native country
3. Try to reach out to people in Dubai office via Linkedin and request for a meeting and CV review and request for referral
It'll be great if someone who has worked in region can advice what's the best to maximize my chances to get an interview call.
