Basharjobs merge with Careermideast Forming Wuzzuf.com
A year and a half after its launch, Basharjobs.com merged with Careermideast.com, ( here is our past review of Bashar jobs) bringing together the former’s job matching algorithm and the latter’s 200,000+ profile in what is now called Wuzzuf.com.
. Many online recruitment agencies post job vacancies online and let job-seekers apply to them by sending their CVs, basically taking the offline recruitment procedure online without a single enhancement. Wuzzuf.com, on the other hand, claims to have re-engineered the recruitment procedure, providing recruiters and job-seekers with an intelligent matching algorithm that is less-expensive as well as time-saving to both parties. It, then, matches Talent Profiles with job openings, creating instant job recommendations to applicants and candidate recommendations to employers.
Wuzzuf.com is planning to expand regionally, competing with major online recruiting agencies in the Middle East. Such as Bayt.com monstergulf and akhtaboot Nevertheless, as Wuzzuf.com’s CEO Muhammad AlGarhy stated, competition in the online recruiting market is not zero-sum; the challenge is not to compete on the 7% market share that belongs to online recruiting companies, rather, it is to attract the offline job-seekers and increase the online recruiting agencies’ share of the recruitment market as opposed to the offline’s share.
