Bayt.com unveils mobile version
Dubai, September 9, 2009
Bayt.com, a leading job site in the Middle East, has launched a mobile version of its website, which will enable job seekers to access the website quickly and easily on their mobile devices, while on the move.
Bayt.com mobile, which went live on September 6, is the first such mobile job site to be launched in the Middle East, specifically designed for the region’s job seekers as a unique, efficient and effective tool for searching for potential openings - wherever the job seeker might be, a company satement said.
Job seekers can simply enter m.bayt.com into the web browser of their mobile device, then instantly search all of the jobs that are currently available on the main site, explained a senior official.
“The launch of Bayt.com mobile essentially builds on our wide range of existing job searching services, by adding a new platform that enables job seekers to access Bayt.com job postings exactly when, where and how they want to,” explained Akram Assaf, chief technology officer, Bayt.com.
'As part of Bayt.com mobile, job seekers will be able to apply from their device to any of the listed jobs that are of interest to them on the site, simply by using their stored CVs, and adding a cover note if required.'
“At Bayt.com, we continue to focus on innovation to help develop and grow the Middle East’s labour market, and Bayt.com mobile demonstrates how we aptly utilise and exploit technology for providing a modern, practical and valuable job seeking service for the region,” he observed.
Now that the site is operational, Bayt.com will be adding a variety of additional services to make the job search even more efficient for job seekers on the move.
'Job seekers will have the option to refresh their stored CV from their device, as if they were using their PC. When job seekers have found positions from their device but want to save them for applying at a later stage, they will have the option of emailing their found jobs to their Bayt.com account, or to their personal email,' Assaf noted.
Furthermore, the online site will be developed to allow jobs seekers to search for positions by sector and industry, as per the existing online site.
It will then offer the option to view how many times their CV has been viewed by employers, in addition to other CV statistics - right on their mobile device, he stated.
The service is additionally of added value to employers. Their postings will automatically appear on the mobile version of the site, thereby giving employers greater access to the hard-to-find candidates.
'At Bayt.com, we are focused on improving both sides of the job search spectrum - we aim to empower job seekers to find the best and most suitable vacancies, and empower employers to easily find the best talent for their advertised positions.'
Bayt.com mobile offers a win-win situation for employers and talent, and we are excited about how, with its launch, we can further stimulate and support the job market in the Middle East - especially in these trying times,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
