What is the best way to advertise jobs in the Gulf (Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Qatar, Kuwait & KSA)?!?

Think of it this way: the benefits of choice represent potential; they are what sites say they can do. To win the War for the Best Talent, however, we need to know reality -- what they actually do. We have to identify the sites that produce what they proclaim. Said another way, the key to using online employment Web-sites effectively is to be a smart consumer.

We have looked at the following criteria and made a call.

  • The site's traffic, expressed in unique visitors/month.
  • The demographics of the site's visitors (e.g., what are their skills and skill levels);
  • The site's capabilities, including whether it offers a job database, a resume database, and the kinds of features that attract passive prospects (e.g., a job agent and confidentiality protection in the resume
  • database).
  • The site's content, including the range, quality and uniqueness of the information that is provided for those who are looking for a job (i.e., active job seekers) and those who aren't (i.e., the passive prospects we'd really like to recruit).
Our top choice is!
