Bayt.com to host UAE job fair
Dubai, January 30, 2012
Leading job site in the Middle East region, Bayt.com, will host the UAE edition of its Virtual Job Fair (VJF) from February 5 to 9.
The hassle-free online job forum aims to boost the country’s job market and get job seekers and employers to interact directly without the need of intermediation, 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, the statement said.
Seekers can look for available jobs and submit their CVs, while employers can interact with them through virtual ‘booths’.
Amer Zureikat, VP sales at Bayt.com, said: “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.”
“Our last VJF in the UAE attracted 15,500+ jobseekers, who made more than 65,000 visits through the fair’s duration. Employers who have participated from across the region have consistently commented on their satisfaction with the pioneering platform as well,” he said.
Jobseekers wishing to participate in Bayt.com’s UAE Virtual Job Fair can register for free at the website. Once logged in, candidates can apply for jobs 24/7, at their own convenience, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
