Dubai, February 25, 2015: Both job searching and recruiting can be frustrating endeavors. Each entails lots of work that seemingly gets little results. Both can leave a person overwhelmed, stressed and irritated.
'I've applied for several jobs and posted my resume on various jobsites, but I haven’t heard back from anyone. I know I'd be a great addition to any team, but I needed a better way to communicate that rather than just sending in a resume and waiting indefinitely” -- this is a common qualm we see in various media editorials and letters .
To put an end to such desperations and frustrations, Dubai Job Connections (DJC), a new player in the recruitment industry adopts an innovative model of ‘Relationship Management’ between the candidate and employers. Instead of being a passive job portal like many others, it focuses on the rising model of Job Placement which provides comprehensive assistance to individuals in their job search. This model is increasingly being used by top global career portals, some of which offer ‘premium’ packages to job seekers including featured applications and CV re-writing.
“Dubai’s job market is becoming increasingly crowded, as demand in the region increases. Lately, any vacancy posted online receives hundreds of applicants, many of whom are unqualified for the role in question but just applying to try their luck – thus drowning out the better candidates. Employers then face the daunting task of filtering this massive amount of applications and in some cases miss the good candidates, which is not a win-win outcome for either party ”, says Mr. Aiman Kabli, the Founder and Lead Recruiter at Dubai Job Connections (DJC).
Outlining a new trend, DJC aims to provide an advantage for talented professionals who wish to invest in their career fulfillment by competing for jobs they truly desire and will excel in. “At DJC we efficiently match employers and workers, using detailed assessments of skills, attitude, career and lifestyle preferences to help ensure a long-term satisfying fit for both parties. The entire system and work structures at DJC are formulated to the highest standards of modern HR practices”, says Mr. Kabli.
Since the regional market consists of job seekers of diverse nationalities with varied backgrounds, skills and experience, DJC engages in multiple activities aimed at determining the right talent for the right job.
“We understand that we need to provide high-quality comprehensive services if we want to gain an edge in this field. Hence, our services include resume review, career counseling, job search strategy guidance, interview preparation sessions, and ultimately a targeted job placement. What sets us apart from other recruitment platforms is that DJC considers job-seekers as the clients, and provides value-added services they would happily pay for, thus it is the only platform in the region to offer recruitment support to employers at no cost. In addition, we have a large database of highly-educated, young professionals of nearly 90 nationalities, most of whom are currently inside the UAE. The database is growing rapidly (over 100 per day) as we continuously source the best talent from social media and personal networking. Using this database we can provide qualified candidates to employers in any sector within only 3 working days, thus helping them save time and money in their recruitment process”, emphasized Mr. Kabli.
DJC’s innovative matching methodology eliminates the need for employers and job seekers to search for each other; rather, DJC does the matching between them behind the scenes based on precise parameters, without having any positions or candidates listed publicly on the portal. Their recruitment methods synchronize with computerization to avoid the common problems of random applications and time-consuming selections.
Speaking about the current job market, Mr. Kabli stated, “The fact that the UAE is strategically located it has been recognized as the most diversified economy in the Middle East. In addition, the upcoming World Expo 2020 will create lots of job opportunities in the region.”
Mr. Aiman Kabli is a seasoned global HR professional with over 12 years’ experience in international staffing and human resource management. He holds an MBA in strategic management from the University of North Texas, and has recruited for large multinationals in over 30 countries. As a key note speaker, Mr. Kabli has been a thought leader in driving best practices related to HR and Staffing. His latest engagement includes a session on Modern HR Trends at the SME World Summit to be held at Jumeirah Beach Hotel on 18-19th March 2015.
