By now, you have all heard of Specialties,’s latest groundbreaking addition to the online recruitment and career planning scene in the Middle East. Specialties was expressly designed to boost your career and promote your job search at every junction in your career by helping you create a live and dynamic online profile that specifically highlights your expert knowledge and goes well beyond the static narrow confines of a traditional CV.

By actively posting and answering professional questions related to your field of interest and specialty on a leading professional career site with millions of page visits, you can instantly gain more visibility for yourself in all the right circles, specifically amongst employers and peers, and thereby significantly enhance your overall career prospects as well as your credibility and reputation as an expert in your field.

With Specialties, building a successful professional online profile has never been easier, and this month you can also win a special package to further boost your career with the new “ Specialties Weekly Contest”.

What is the Specialties Weekly Contest?

The Specialties Weekly Contest is a weekly draw that will take place at the end of each week for the duration of one month starting from today. Every registered member on Specialties will enter the draw automatically once they start asking professional questions. The more questions and answers you post on Specialties, and the higher the quality of these questions and answers, the more likely your chances are to win a custom career-enhancer package (a CV Writing Services package and Application Promotion worth over $150) that will propel your career forward!

How can you participate in the Specialties Weekly Contest*?

1. Join Specialties for free:

4. Share your professional knowledge and spread the benefits of communal problem solving by answering other specialists’ questions.

5. Invite leaders and peers to answer questions and endorse you. Remember, endorsements and peer accolades go a long way in furthering your career reputation and enhancing your professional influence in peer networks.
