    السلام عليكم
    الحل جميل ومجدى الى حد ما ولكن المشكلة تكمن ان قطاع كبير من العماله المهنية لا يلتفت الى اعلانات منصات التواصل كالفيس بوك وتويتر وانستجرام وغيرها ويقتصر استخدامه على الاتصال عبر المسنجر مثلا وايضا اغلب استخدام العماله المهنية للهاتف النقال فى جزء الاتصال واستقبال الاتصالت فلو تم الوصول لطريقة تكوين قاعدة بيانات بها ارقام هواتف العماله المهنية فى المجالات المطلوبة او حتى المجالات الاخرى فسيتم الوصول اليهم بشكل اسرع لان العمل يتم فى هذا القطاع عن طريق مشاركة العمل مع بعضهم البعض
