July 3, 2013 3:39 by kippreport
Bayt.com launched its new platform, Specialties, to help professionals express their thought leadership in their professional areas of expertise, and allows employers to tap into this to find professionals whose true abilities surpass those represented through traditional CVs.
According to a 2012 Bayt.com poll, 84 per cent of employers take the time to research candidates online before making a final hiring decision. Of these, 57.1 per cent ‘always’ check, and 26.9 per cent ‘frequently’ check. The biggest challenge stated by employers is sourcing relevant candidates for senior executive and management positions, which suggests that those candidates who do have an online presence, and who are able to prove their expertise such as through Bayt.com’s Specialties, will stand out from the competition. Industry knowledge is also a highly desirable trait for senior executive and management candidates, which Specialties allows job seekers to demonstrate.
