The Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) will launch the 4th edition of the Electronic Expo for Employment on Sunday with the participation of more than 50 firms from the private sector. According to the HRDF, as many as 15,000 job opportunities for Saudis (both male and female) will be announced. The five-day event seeks to connect employers with job seekers through the Internet to help them save time and money, and to increase their chances of getting a job. “The exhibition allows business owners to participate through electronic platforms to show jobs available for job seekers,” said the Deputy General Director for hiring support, Mansour Al-Mansour. He said that this also allows job-seekers to take advantage of this innovative exhibition in order learn about career opportunities for them at these companies. A job seeker can visit the site, www.eliqaat.com, for further details on job opportunities. Job seekers can visit the site and create a new account, build their resumes and apply for jobs. According to Al-Mansour, the exhibition is an opportunity for Saudi job seekers to meet with the owners of businesses electronically without the traditional hassle of a lengthy job search. Instead, they can seek career opportunities around the clock throughout the exhibition period. “Also, the event allows the job seeker to engage in real-time communication through texting and messaging online with business owners,” he concluded.
