Everyone knows that in order to live in Dubai and enjoy all its facilities one has to find a job here. It’s no surprise then that Dubai is one of the hottest places for job seekers. Millions of professionals from all areas of expertise are searching for employment opportunities in Dubai. At the same time, organizations in Dubai are constantly on the lookout for talented individuals. For any open vacancy there are hundreds of applications. But still somehow employers are unable to find the suitable employees and job hunters cannot land the right job. Clearly something is wrong somewhere.
Enter Laimoon, a new service that is designed to solve this problem. Below is what the people behind Laimoon tell how they do it
We wanted to fix that [process], so we built an engine that could provide a better matching. We did this first by getting to know the job seeker better. With a clear and engaging user interface, we learn more and get clear signals. We do this without showing off job listings like most sites do right on the homepage. It’s only after we get to know them that we display their relevant results.
Curiously I decided to try it out so I created an account on Laimoon to see how things work (and of course I also work in Dubai and always on the lookout for better opportunities). After I signed up I was presented with a few questions about myself and then I was presented with job opportunities based on my aspirations and ambitions.
So basically they are matching the candidate with job description first and then disclosing the company name and other details to the candidate.
Interesting concept given that it’s still in its initial stages. But as of now it might not work for everyone for example in my case I am looking for a specific kind of job at a specific kind of company at a specific salary range. Now a very different company can have a very attractive job description that I might like just by looking at the job description but I still won’t apply for that job because I am not interested in that company or the salary is not acceptable to me. In other words the matching that Laimoon is doing is very wide and it would take a lot of optimization in their engine to do a close match.
But there is more, Laimoon also aggregates job listings from different employers and shows them at one place (relevant to your interests obviously), and this feature alone is enough to use it every day as it would save you a lot of time spend in searching for vacancies at different companies on their website.
I would highly recommend Laimoon if you are looking for a job in Dubai or surrounding region. Although its a new website it has great potential and will certainly get better with time.
