After several incredibly successful events across the region, Bayt.com, the region’s number one job site, announced that it will be hosting its third Virtual Job Fair (VJF) in Egypt from January 6 – 10, 2013. The hassle-free online job forum aims to boost the country’s job market and get job seekers and employers to interact directly without the need for intermediation.
The Bayt.com VJF presents a unique concept allowing jobseekers to fully interact with potential employers within a virtual environment, styled to look like a real job fair. Using a range of digital tools, such as chat rooms, webcasts and webinars, jobseekers and employers can exchange vital job-related information. Jobseekers can search for available jobs and submit their CVs, while employers can interact with jobseekers through virtual ‘booths’.
“Efficiency, effectiveness and convenience are essential considerations for everyone, especially in today’s busy times. Our Virtual Job Fair event successfully combines all three, allowing employers and job seekers to connect with as many parties as possible, with optimal flexibility and convenience,” said Suhail Masri, VP of Sales, Bayt.com. “After having hosted Virtual Job Fairs in the UAE and KSA, we are pleased to now launch this innovative, pioneering platform in Egypt. We have had consistently positive feedback from employers and job seekers alike based on their participation in previous VJFs, and we look forward to having a similar impact in Egypt.”
