Recently, I came across a very interesting job site, Bayt.com. Interesting because I have had a number of clients that have relayed their intent to pursue a career in Dubai, one of the fastest growing populations among the major cities of the world. Listed as the #1 job site in the Middle East, Bayt.com boasts more than 26,000 employers and over 2 million registered job seekers!
My initial intent was to provide a list of useful job sites, such as Monster.com , and the more I investigated, the more sites I discovered! Service Canada lists 15 Canadian web sites that have job listings! And from what I see that’s the short list!
As the list of job sites continues to expand it is well worth investigating but keep in mind, according to the 2008 Executive Job Market Intelligence Report produced by ExecuNet, only 11% of search firms and 16% of Corporate HR use online job postings to find executive candidates.
Networking is still reported to be the most effective resource for job seekers and recruiters and that is unlikely to change!
