Dubai, May 21, 2013
Bayt.com, a leading job site in the region, has announced two virtual fairs: the Bayt.com Middle East Virtual Job Fair which will be accessible online from May 26 to May 30, and the Bayt.com Hospitality Virtual Job Fair from June 9 to June 13.
These new launches come following the success of Bayt.com's earlier virtual job fair series, said a statement from the company.
Employers and job seekers from across the region are invited to participate in the innovative online fair, which allows both professionals and companies to interact live, explore various opportunities, and access Bayt.com’s HR tools all from the convenience of their personal computers, without needing to travel or commute.
The Bayt.com 'ME Virtual Job Fair' will be held for the third time and will target the site’s community of over 11.5 million members as well as all other professionals interested in finding a job in the Middle East.
Meanwhile, the Bayt.com Hospitality Job Fair is the second one to be launched and will target the jobsite’s community of over 500,000 hospitality-industry professionals, whose talents and experience spans all career levels and job roles as well as any other professionals interested in a hospitality job in the region.
The last Bayt.com Mena Job Fair received more than 139,000 visits and the last Bayt,com Hospitality Job Fair received over 75,000 visits.
“The Bayt.com Virtual Job Fair concept is the evolution of the traditional job fair; it provides the ultimate level of convenience for today’s busy professionals. Through the fair, employers and job seekers can achieve results quickly and cost-effectively, from the comfort and convenience of their own home or office,” remarked Suhail Masri, the VP of sales, Bayt.com.
"The exciting virtual fair concept is unique, in that it allows employers to fully interact with job seekers through an immersive, interactive virtual environment. The platform mimics a traditional job fair setting but eliminates the inconveniences and physical logistics required to participate in them," he noted.
The fair, said Masri, presents numerous advantages including easy accessibility from anywhere in the world, less planning, no need for costly stand and branding manufacturing and far more flexible timing parameters.
"This goes in line with our mission at Bayt.com to empower people with the tools and information to build their lifestyle of choice. The convenience, effectiveness and Employer ROI afforded by the Bayt.com Virtual Job Fair, targeting the entire regional spectrum and the industry-specific hospitality industry are unparalleled," he noted.
"Employers and job seekers can use a range of digital tools, such as chat rooms, webcasts and webinars, to exchange vital job-related information. Jobseekers can search for available jobs and submit their CVs, while employers can interact with jobseekers through virtual booths," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
