Recruitment web site launches online CV service

A professional online CV and covering letter writing service has been launched by Middle East recruitment web site Bayt.com.

A professional online CV and covering letter writing service has been launched by Middle East recruitment web site Bayt.com.

The service is designed to appeal to jobseekers who may have all the necessary qualifications for a position but may lack some of the presentation and writing skills to get to the interview stage.

Their applications can now be re-written by Bayt’s expert staff, who are trained to write powerful job applications and have inside knowledge of what employers look for during the hiring process.

“In today’s competitive environment, having a power CV is a critical component of a successful job search, particularly since hiring managers spend as little as 10 seconds on a CV during the screening out process,” says Mona Ataya, Bayt vice president, marketing. “By using Bayt’s Professional CV Services, job seekers can eliminate the factors that send most CVs and cover letters to the reject pile. Bayt Professional CV Services offers a customised service, tailored to an individual’s specific career needs, expert advice from professional career consultants and personalised attention with the speed of the internet,” adds Ataya.

The company’s professional career consultants help clients with specific wording, organisation and positioning to help individuals communicate their skills and experience in the most effective and distinctive way to potential employers.

The whole CV writing process is completed online, the job seeker needs to log onto the Bayt web site, select a service based on his career level, complete the online application and select the preferred payment method. Prices range from US$59 for an entry level covering letter to US$239 for the full CV and covering letter package for management executives.

A Bayt career consultant then contacts the applicant via e-mail to get started on the CV or cover letter request. Within days, they receive a draft, and after the revision process is complete, receive a final version within a fortnight.
