Acclaimed career site Bayt.com has announced that their career mobile app has recently surpassed 1.5 million downloads, crossing a new milestone. The app, which is easy to use, allows professionals to search and apply for their ideal jobs on the go, as well as learn vital information about their career and job applications. The app also notifies users when their applications have been viewed, or when a job they might be interested in opens up.
“We can say with confidence now that the future has arrived: close to 60% of job seekers in the Middle East prefer to search and apply to jobs on Bayt.com using their mobile phones,” said Omar Tahboub, Vice President of Product, Bayt.com. “Today, we are announcing that over 1.5 million users have Bayt.com in their pockets. Many of those users used the Bayt.com mobile app not only to search for jobs but also to register on Bayt.com and create their complete CVs — a task seen a year or two ago as possible only via desktops. Job seekers in the Middle East have by now fully caught up with their counterparts internationally and adopted mobile as the medium of choice to land their dream job.”
Bayt.com’s mobile app provides professionals in the Middle East with the tools they need to create their professional profiles, apply to any of thousands of job postings on Bayt.com, and stay informed of their application status via mobile notifications. Users can connect through their Facebook or Google account and sync their information for their personal profile and upload their CV. Through these simple, yet advanced features, professionals can apply to jobs, access saved searches and get information on who views their CV. This innovative platform recommends jobs that fit users’ profiles and notifies them if a suitable position opens up.
“We are very pleased by the popularity and success of the Bayt.com mobile app. This popularity reinforces our mission as the leading job site in the Middle East to empower people to lead their lifestyles of choice, and strengthens further our commitment to serve job seekers and employers in the region on all the channels through which they choose to access Bayt.com’s services,” said Tahboub.
