Earlier this year, the Middle East Job Index reported that nearly two thirds (64%) of the region’s employers were planning to hire within the year. Bayt.com explained that the platform sees these hiring intentions being implemented through thousands of online job announcements and tens of thousands of CV searches; through which employers directly find, contact, interview, and hire candidates from the Bayt.com database.

“We are honored to help jobseekers in the MENA region to land their ideal jobs, and to make thousands of job opportunities available in the region through our platform on a daily basis,” said Omar Tahboub, General Manager of Bayt.com. “Bayt.com aims to empower people to build and grow their careers, to facilitate communication and opportunity creation between employers and job seekers, and to always make the relevant tools and information available. With that goal in mind, Bayt.com works closely with tens of thousands of employers and millions of job seekers from diverse background, career levels, and locations.”

In addition, Bayt.com has enabled job seekers tests through the mobile app for ease of use. These tests examine specific skills and rank the expertise level of job seekers once they are finished with the assessment.
