If all goes to plan this quarter the number of job applicants walking into the Middle East’s IT companies big and small brandishing paper CVs and big, hopeful smiles will be somewhat diminished due to the appearance of a pioneering new event in the Middle East HR calendar. The Bayt.com Virtual Technology Job Fair, a close collaboration between Bayt.com and Dubai Internet City (DIC), with Mediaquest as media partner, will aim to do to the Technology industry what the first Bayt.com Virtual Education Fair did to the academic industry, ie make the matching of talent with opportunity faster, easier and more effective.
How will it work?For one week between March 28 till April 1, 2010 professionals seeking jobs in the IT sector can visit ONLINE for free the Bayt.com Virtual Technology Job Fair (VTJF), peruse opportunities with leading IT companies from across the region and apply online to all jobs they are interested in and qualified for. They can also chat with IT company representatives, ask questions and learn more about specific positions, the culture and career plans in the company. Meanwhile leading corporations can advertise current positions at all career levels, source, screen and shortlist relevant candidates and chat with professionals about their career plans and potential fit with the company.
Why is this a great idea?Simple! Clear advantages for Jobseekers include the fact that the online job fair is completely FREE, requires no travel/commuting costs and is the most effective platform to interact with the IT industry’s top recruiters at every career level. For the Middle East’s IT Employers advantages of the VTJF also include substantial savings in costs and time as well as the invaluable opportunity to maximize exposure and reach out to the IT community of the Middle East’s #1 jobsite which currently enjoys over 4 million registered professionals. Bayt.com has more or less single-handedly pioneered the Virtual Job Fair space in the online world across the Middle East and has already launched a number of highly successful and extremely well publicized localized as well as pan-regional Virtual Job Fairs in the past year. The Virtual Technology Fair promises to be just as attractive and vibrant a platform for the Middle East’s top IT recruiters to meet the Middle East’s top IT talent.
The VTJF will have opportunities in the IT sector for professionals at every career level from entry level to senior executive professionals and consultants so if you are an IT professional we encourage you to register today, logon when the Fair begins and peruse the universe of fresh opportunity.
