Registrations up on Dubai job portal
Dubai, June 12, 2013
Job applications submitted via the Dubai Government job portal (eJob) have risen by 36 per cent, according to official statistics revealed by the Dubai eGovernment Department (DeG).
This follows the awareness campaign launched by DeG last month, its participation in Careers UAE 2013 and new updates to the portal.
The rise in the number of registrants in the eJob portal was accompanied by an upward growth in the number of applicants for vacancies, over the three weeks that followed the media campaign, a statement said.
The portal provides a fully electronic mechanism for dealing with job applications starting with the department’s vacancies, to submission of applications, posting of resumes, management of interviews, sending job offers, tracking applications, receiving correspondence, fixing dates for personal interviews and finally selecting the eligible candidates.
The number of government entities participating in eJob rose to 13 this year. This is in line with DeG’s drive towards enhancing government integration and keeping pace with best practices in global standards in a bid to increase the available job opportunities, while exerting maximum efforts to access a larger section of the targeted categories in line with the government’s future prospects, said Ahmad Bin Humaidan, director general of DeG.
DeG has held 12 training workshops for 125 employees of human resources sections, at Dubai government departments and entities, enabling them to get familiar with the new design as well as the updates that were made on eJob. - TradeArabia News Service
