Online job searching websites play a leading role for candidates looking for a job; this holds true throughout the world. Employment searching sites enable professionals of all levels and skills to find career opportunities relatively easily, but sometimes the website they use is not the right fit for them, and merely uploading their CV won't land them a job.
Since 2000, Bayt.com boasts having connected millions of job seekers and employers in the Middle East. Along with its virtual job fairs, applicant tracking, and career portal technologies, the jobs portal offers its registered job seekers free and easy access to over 10,000 jobs on any given day.
“The Bayt.com job seeker database includes hundreds of thousands of niche job roles that are as diverse as Oracle and Python developers, financial analysts, designers, instrumentation engineers, product managers, and legal and compliance advisors,” said Suhail Masri, Vice President of Employer Solutions, Bayt.com.
The latest job seeker tally from Bayt.com revealed that 61 per cent of the online labour force in the UAE has an account on Bayt.com. At the regional level, 43 per cent of the online labour force has an account on Bayt.com. The jobs portal claims to nave nearly 29,000,000 CVs and more than 40,000 employers in its database.
In the GCC alone, 41 per cent of the online labour force is on Bayt.com. The highest prevalence of online labour force with a Bayt.com account in the GCC is in the UAE at 61 per cent, followed by Qatar at 42 per cent, Oman at 36 per cent, KSA at 35 per cent, Bahrain at 28 per cent, and Kuwait at 27 per cent.
Other regional markets also have a very large proportion of online labour force with Bayt.com accounts. These markets include Jordan, in which 75 per cent of the online labour force is registered on Bayt.com; 44 per cent of Egypt’s online labour force and 31 per cent of Lebanon’s online labour force are on Bayt.com. The job site’s trilingual platform (English, Arabic, French) as well as its range of end-to-end employment solutions and career planning tools certainly contribute to its popularity.
“As an organisation, we have always been committed to helping people find their ultimate career opportunities. In order to truly help, we do not believe in sticking to the bare minimum. We work through innovation, we seek to improve, create, update, and reinvent so we can make technology that actually empowers others,” concluded Masri.
