KidZania Kuwait and Bayt.com to Help Children Choose Their Dream Profession

Kuwait, 3 December 2012: KidZania Kuwait is pleased to announce Bayt.com as the latest partner to join the highly anticipated children’s city. Bayt.com, the number one job site in the Middle East, will sponsor the Job Information Center within the M.H. Alshaya franchised ‘edutainment’ center. Children will have the opportunity to explore their abilities and interests and how these could be built into a CV to help them apply for one of the many roles available in KidZania Kuwait.

As a partner of this award-winning ‘edutainment’ concept, Bayt.com will help children learn about the recruitment process in a real-life setting. Children will create a CV on an iPad to help them search for the right job role for them in KidZania Kuwait. Bayt.com’s establishment will also allow children to role-play as either a Sales Agent or a Resume Researcher.

As a Sales Agent, children will collect career information from the park’s different establishments to help other children understand KidZania’s job market. Resume Researchers, a role exclusive to KidZania Kuwait, will learn how to support their peers in their search for a ‘new career’ by matching a potential candidate’s resume to a specific job description and direct them to an appropriate establishment. The exciting roles offered by Bayt.com will teach children how to collect and input data, manage time, interact positively with each other and understand the value of money as they earn kidZos (KidZania’s currency) for their recruitment services.
