Lahore, Pakistan, 2007/03/21 - Strong demand for IT professionals in Pakistan, coupled with a larger pool of qualified engineers has made Rozee.pk one of the top 25 visited sites in Pakistan.
Rozee.pk, the top jobs portal of Pakistan has seen an 800% growth in traffic over the past one year to become one of the most visited sites in Pakistan. With the massive global demand for IT man power and the move of multinationals to Pakistan as an "offshore destination", the prospects for IT professionals have never been better. Pakistan's strong growth rate, infrastructure development and formal IT policy has increased domestic demand as well. Fortunately for the employers, Pakistan's large computer literate, English speaking population is a steady source of engineers.
Traditionally, there was a lot of distortion in the Pakistan job market place due to inefficiencies. The traditional media such as newspapers could not cope with the rapid paced jobs market and therefore caused unnecessary churn. Rozee.pk, with its experience in muslim social networking through its parent company Naseeb Networks fast job search algorithm as well as innovative services for job seekers has made the marketplace very transparent.
The employers too have noticed the return on investment of advertising on Rozee.PK. In addition to the top multinational companies, the top tier domestic companies like Pakistan Cable, National Foods and Beacon House Systems have started exclusive contracts with Rozee.PK. All in all, well over 3000 companies advertise with Rozee.PK, making it by far the most popular site in Pakistan. Rozee.PK is just as popular with the job seekers, dominating the space with over 400,000 job applicants.
As the jobs in Pakistan have grown, Rozee.pk has been keeping pace by offering a customized newsletter and resume builder for job seekers. Rozee.pk has augmented its online marketing reach with offline events such as the popular annual Rozee.pk Job Fair in all the major cities of Pakistan. This allows people seeking jobs in Lahore as well as careers in Karachi and IT jobs Islamabad to meet the employers in a professional setting.
"Given the competition for Engineers and QA professionals in the US, we have had to move some of our functions to Pakistan" said Zafar Khan, CEO of International SEO Company Sofizar, Inc.
“Our tickets comparison search engine is growing at 25% a month rate and we use Rozee.pk on a daily basis to keep up with our hiring needs".
