Dubai, October 22, 2012
Bayt.com, the Middle East’s number one job site, has launched its new mobile application, now available for BlackBerry as well as Android and iPhone.
Finding the ideal career is now even more accessible with the mobile app, opening up a world of opportunity powered by Bayt.com’s innovative job-seeking tools, a statement from an official said.
“The future is mobile, and at Bayt.com we are well aware of that. Bearing in mind the power of real-time for immediate awareness, influence and strength, instant engagement is more necessary than ever,” said Suhail Masri, vice president of sales, Bayt.com.
“We are empowering users everywhere with the launch of our mobile application. Professionals need convenience, as well as the ability to interact quickly and efficiently with their potential employers. The Bayt.com mobile app is yet another platform that demonstrates our spirit of innovation and cements our leadership position, by providing job seekers with the power of both mobile and real time, giving them the freedom to seek employment as and when they like.”
Job seekers can enjoy a fully interactive experience with the Bayt.com mobile app, which has an engaging look and feel that brings the search for employment to a whole new level of engagement, the statement said.
It features a powerful notification centre that will inform users when their job applications have been viewed, when there is a position posted that matches their profile, and more.
Users can connect through their Bayt.com or Facebook account, and can completely sync the app to their online account. This will allow them to access and manage multiple CVs, job applications, saved searches, and profile information, while also getting statistics on who views their CV.
Further functions include the ability to search and apply for jobs through the app and being able to update profile pictures using their smartphone’s camera, it said.
On an average day, over 11,000 jobs from across the Mena region are listed on Bayt.com. Similar numbers are also filled by employers searching the Bayt.com CV database for relevant professional candidates.
These opportunities can all now be made use of by jobseekers using their mobile phones. In addition to its leading recruitment marketplace, Bayt.com is known for its salaries platform, the region’s first online salary benchmarking tool, which allows salary comparisons, and its people platform, which is Bayt.com’s branding arm for professionals.
Bayt.com also regularly conducts virtual job fairs for all industries and career levels around the region.
Smartphone users can download the Bayt.com smartphone app free of charge from the Android App Store, BlackBerry Store, or iPhone App Store. – TradeArabia News Service
