Bayt.com Introduces Free Job Postings to Support Recruitment Activities without Physical Contact
Bayt.com, the Middle East’s #1 job site, introduced free job postings for employers across the region in effort to counter potential economic repercussions of Coronavirus outbreak, to increase the visibility of online work opportunities, and to push the hiring process across the region forward.
Amidst the increase of Coronavirus cases across the globe, businesses are more and more reliant on the virtual world while minimizing activities that risk virus exposure such as physical events and large gatherings. Likewise, job seekers are increasing their online activities. Bayt.com reported a surge in site usage by 24.46% since the start of the year, in comparison to the same period in 2019, with an average of 1.5 million page views per day.
With 38 million registered professionals on the website, Bayt.com’s database is larger than ever and is growing by more than 16,000 job seekers a day. The new job posting initiative grants companies globally access to Bayt’s CV database and serves as a quick tool to continue the vital hiring process in a fully online environment.
The job posting tool will offer a number of new benefits for employers including:
- Free employment advertising opportunities.
- Access to applicants’ profiles and unlimited CV views.
- The ability to instantly contact job applicants via phone number, email, and messaging.
- The ability to receive alerts every time a new candidate applies to the job.
- Access to automated screening filters to enhance the applicant matching process.
Akram Assaf, Chief Technology Officer at Bayt.com said: “Opening up access to online recruitment is a critical step in contributing to our mission of helping employers expedite their hiring processes as well as increasing the opportunities available for all jobseekers, especially in the middle of the critical period that we are witnessing due to the spread of COVID-19. Free job postings on Bayt.com will provide an innovative gateway that matches the right employers with the right talent to help keep organizations well-staffed and professionals’ careers moving along a path that meets their goals while minimizing any physical contact.”
It is worth noting that Bayt.com has also extended its Virtual Fairs technology (vFairs.com) across the region to support organizations, businesses, and governments in finding an alternative to physical events, fairs, conferences, and tradeshows.
