Which is the best job site in India?
One of the quickest and most efficient ways to find your dream job is on a job portal. In India today, there are countless job portals around. It is only understandable to feel overwhelmed by the options out there. But not all job portals work equally well for everyone. There are some that are clearly more efficient than the others when it comes to getting you a job.
Here are some indicators to help identify what may qualify as the best job site in India:
1. What are the kinds of jobs available?
When selecting the best job portal for your needs, one of the most important things to look at is the number and kinds of jobs available. Not every job portal will cater to the kind of role you’re looking for. There are many job options across industries and functions. It is important to first identify what kind of job you would like. For different levels of experience, there are different kinds of job options available. Choose a job portal depending on the range of industries, functions and locations that are being offered.
2. Your profile on the job site.
Does the job portal ask you to upload a CV and write a cover letter? Cut down on the tedium and difficulties of drafting a CV. Opt for the SmartProfile™ instead, which overcomes all the problems of the traditional CV and creates an impressive snapshot of your core skills, abilities and preferences.
3. Does it match you to relevant jobs?
Many job sites are full of expired job postings. They also make job suggestions that are nowhere close to what you are looking for. Either the skills, qualifications and preferences are mismatched, or the role, industry or salary preferences are off the mark. A good job portal should first and foremost match you to just the kind of job you are looking for.
4. Is the application process easy?
You must also take into consideration the ease with which the job portal allows you to apply for the job of your choice. The application process should not be tedious or complicated. You should be able to apply for the job with the click of a button.

5. What is the level of engagement?
Once you apply for the job, what more are you being offered? What is the frequency of the job alerts that you receive? Are you being offered interview tips, self-improvement tips, and the option to interview for the job right away? These are all elements that add to the substance of a good job site.
To find jobs that match your skills and preferences, create your SmartProfile™ today.
