If you are looking for a job, you are dealing with many emotions. Things are changing everyday around you, and the "new normal" might have made you unsure of where to start. After months of lockdown, hiring is gaining ground but has not reached the same levels of what it was six months back.
Hiring has changed
Hiring managers are revisiting their recruitment processes to make sure they are able to get the right candidates in a challenging market. While the trends and gains in the job market remain unpredictable, how talent is hired has changed. Right from scouting and assessment of the job applications to the final decision making, technology has now taken center stage in the hiring process. From video cover letters, AI-enabled search, and smart chat to video interviews, all tools are being used by employers. That’s where i12WRK steps in and it are this particular combination that makes the i12WRK app appealing to both job seekers and employers.
Why job seekers love i12WRK?
At a time, when it is difficult to spot a fake job post, vulnerable job seekers often end-up falling into the trap of payments. Also, once a job seeker applies to a job, they are clueless about the status of their application. There is rarely any feedback or insight as to what is happening to their application. The i12WRK app ensures complete transparency and zero cost to the seeker community.
i12WRK has maintained its reputation for genuine and verified jobs since it launched in 2018. i12WRK has been matching job seekers with their next employer in the most transparent manner, giving out details on the company and salary to candidates.
i12WRK assures 100 percent responsible for every application. Whether a candidate is shortlisted, or a job position is closed, the candidate is informed all through the way. “i12WRK helped me find a job at such a time when people are out there looking in great numbers, and especially when you are not sure about the source or authenticity of a job posting” says a candidate who used i12WRK.

Features like video cover letters have found increased popularity with the hiring managers in the region. “Getting to know a candidate a little more before the interview works out for both employers as well as applicants. This allows us as an employer to assess the candidate before the interview. Also, it is a great opportunity for applicants to put more on the table and stand out from a pile of other applications.” says an HR professional who has been associated with i12WRK. In the GCC, the i12WRK job platform has become one of the first to have almost 40 percent of registered seekers apply to jobs using video cover letters. “I have seen some really creative video cover letters from candidates showcasing their work, shot at different environments and even making use of their editing skills, adding effects and graphics to the video,” says an HR head.
Recommendations for job seekers
Job seekers are needed to adapt themselves to the new technology, practicing introductions and interviews on videos using apps like Zoom, teams, etc. They should create the right environment for an interview, with adequate internet speed, sound, background, camera angle.
