Bayt, a popular job site in the Middle East has just released an official app for Windows Phone. The app lets you hunt for a job anytime, anywhere. Use your Windows Phone 8 device to search and apply for jobs posted by the region's top employers.
Here are some of the features for Bayt on Windows Phone:
- Log on with Bayt.com account or connect with Facebook.
- Access your CVs, job applications, saved searches (job alerts), profile information, etc.
- Manage multiple CVs, get stats on who is viewing your CVs, and get the ability to email them directly.
- Search for jobs using filters.
- Apply for jobs
- Manage your profile
When you open the Bayt app, the search section is displayed right away. Enter a job title, skills, or company names. You can filter the search using locations. We think this section can be improved with more filters in addition to just the location. For example, a filter for a job field would be helpful.
The search results page lists the matching jobs. Make sure to enter plenty of specific keywords if you don’t want to be overwhelmed with a huge list.
Each job listing provides the company, description, and location. You can click the apply button at the bottom if you are interested. You’ll need to log in with a Bayt account or choose to connect with Facebook.
Swiping left from the search menu brings you to the My Bayt section. In here, you can access your job applications, job alerts, and recommended jobs. You can also manage your CVs, stats, and personal information. There's also an option to switch the language to Arabic.
Bayt is a free download from the Windows Phone Store. Looking for a job in the Middle East? Check out the application and let us know what you think in the comments!
