As a step to fulfill the growing demand for online recruitment solutions in the Middle East, Akhtaboot – the career network – has expanded its operations to reach Jeddah and Al-Riyadh. Akhtaboot’s presence in the Saudi Market aims to provide both companies and job seekers with a higher level of onsite and local customer service. Akhtaboot’s offices in Saudi Arabia are run by Recruitment Consultants, HR and Marketing Specialists who are dedicated to provide an extraordinary variety of employment-related services for both job seekers and businesses of Jeddah and Al-Riyadh.

Akhtaboot has also continued its ongoing commitment to support the young graduates in Jeddah and Al-Riyadh through the Akhtaboot Cares Initiative, which is a comprehensive plan that was developed through partnerships with a number of third parties and educational institutions that aims to educate the young public on issues related to career planning, while creating awareness and readiness on different work-related issues.

As part of the “Akhtaboot Cares initiative”, Akhtaboot’s Area Manager, Dauod Abu Kasheh, along with one of Akhtaboot’s Recruitment Specialists, Atef Hajeer, have conducted their first lecture on career planning at Saudi Arabia’s oldest and most prestigious university, King Saud University, Al-Riyadh. The main focus of the lecture was to educate the attendees on the differences between a job and a career and the steps that they should follow in order to effectively plan their career. The interactive presentation was well received and feedback from the 150 attendees was overwhelmingly positive. One of the students commented: “God bless you, this is one of the most informative and inspiring lectures I have ever attended”.
