As the effect also reached the big companies, we cannot say that their offer is being unreasonable. However, do not lose hope in searching for new opportunities. Some companies with consideration of the quality of work you can provide usually give better benefits regardless of your qualifications.

Fields like Information Technology (IT), most of their employees are skilled and well-experienced, but this should not discourage you from trying out to apply for these jobs in dubai. They also accept candidates who only have experience and knowledge in the mentioned field.  Fair enough with the applicants who finished a bachelor's degree, though it may look like they have better chances in terms of qualifications, not all are requiring higher education attainment.

To enhance their skills and knowledge, they proceed to take certifications rather than the normal process of studying. Certification programs customarily can be done by months, a year, or two including the practical.
