Dubai, March 14, 2010
Bayt.com, the region’s number one job site, announced that it will hold the Middle East's first virtual technology job fair from March 28 to April 1.
Job seekers looking for technology industry roles can log on to the Bayt.com website for the unique opportunity to search for jobs, submit a CV, and interact with technology industry employers – in an efficient and convenient online recruitment forum, said a statement.
The Virtual Technology Job Fair will be run in cooperation with strategic partner Dubai Internet City, the region’s premier ICT cluster and a member of Tecom Investments, and with media partner Mediaquest Corp.
The online event aims to effectively connect qualified job seeking candidates, specialists or graduates, with career opportunities from technology companies.
Candidates will have the easy and unique option to ‘attend’ the job fair from any Internet-accessible computer and submit their résumés to participating companies of interest any time during the five days; while enabling local, regional and international employers to establish an active talent-seeking presence, without physically being in a location.

“By the same token, the online job fair will enable employers to communicate vital information about their company to a wide online audience, with the additional benefit of access to some of the region’s top talent.”
“This platform will help and support both the employees and employers in finding the suitable opportunities to grow and benefit the industry,” added Malek Al Malek, executive director, Dubai Internet City.-TradeArabia News Service
