Bayt.com to launch Saudi virtual job fair
Riyadh, January 8, 2012
Bayt.com, a major job site in the Middle East, will run its popular Virtual Job Fair (VJF) for Saudi Arabia from January 14 to 18.
In the past years, the online job fair had achieved massive success across the region, for providing a convenient platform from which jobseekers and employers can interact directly without the need of a physical forum, said a statement.
The VJF presents a unique concept where jobseekers are able to fully interact with potential employers within a virtual environment, styled to look like a real job fair.
Using a range of digital tools, such as chat rooms, webcasts and webinars, both parties can exchange vital job-related information. Jobseekers can search for available jobs and submit their CVs, while employers can interact with jobseekers through virtual ‘booths’.
“We are living in a fast-paced world where convenience is key, and both employers and jobseekers want to pursue the full potential of the market in an expedient and effective manner. That is why the Bayt.com Virtual Job Fair has been extremely successful across the region; it has proved to be the ideal solution for all parties to explore as many opportunities as possible, at their own convenience and from the comfort and privacy of their own home or office environment,” said Amer Zureikat, VP sales at Bayt.com.
“Our last VJF in Saudi attracted 48,000 jobseekers, who made more than 100,000 visits through the fair’s duration,” he said.
Jobseekers wishing to participate in the job fair, can register for free at the website. Once logged in, candidates will be able to apply for jobs 24/7, at their own convenience and from the privacy and comfort of their own home or office environment, the statement said.
Participating employers benefit from increased brand awareness, and access to the website’s extensive portfolio of jobseekers, made up of over 6,750,000 registered users covering over 94 industries and 185 countries.
With the Bayt.com’s VJF there are minimal resource requirements in return for maximum exposure, meaning less costs and a higher return on investment than with a traditional job fair, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
