All about Job Portal | Top 10 Best Online Job Portals in 2016 –International & India | Which job portal to choose? | Why do we need job portals? | What is a job portal? | How to check if a job listed online is posted by a company or by an agent (consultant) |

In today’s time; everyone is technology dependent and so is recruitments. Before I write anything about the best job portals in India, let me first help all of you understand:

  1. What is a job portal?
    1. A Job portal in simple language is a website that helps Job seekers find jobs and aids employers in their quest to locate ideal candidates in a particular area. The idea to create such a common website for job seekers and companies came from classified newspapers which contains hundreds of jobs every day. On an average about 10 job portals are created every day globally.
  2. Why do we need job portals?
    1. First of all we need to understand one fact about job portals that there are two main users (1) Job Seekers and (2) Companies. Companies spend thousands of dollars (rupees) on recruitment process; starting from publishing / displaying an Ad in locals newspapers to shortlisting to screening to interview rounds – and then salary negotiations and if this doesn’t go well then they again start from step 1. Now on the other hand Job seekers want a place where they can search jobs matching to their profiles in their interested cities / places around the globe and for this they can purchase or even go through all the employment newspapers of various cities every day. This is one of the biggest reasons that Job portals have become a necessary part of our lives for career expansion and development.
  3. Do they really help? “Very important”
    1. Yes, as a job seeker can see various available jobs online and can apply to as many as desired by only creating a onetime account on the website (job portal). The possibility of getting a job increases if you’re applying to a company listed job – You must be amazed what am I talking about here. Yes, there is a small technical thing out here which is very important. As we all know that nothing comes free in this world and so is a job portal, but then one question which emerges is “it’s a free account” which is also true. But the technical truth is they charge companies in lakhs to access your uploaded resume or to show their jobs online. It is same as a newspaper – you need to pay to publish your Ad. Another fact of a Job portal is that they all registered users and their resumes to not only to companies but to the JOB CONSULTANTS as well!!!!! This has now a days become one of the biggest problem in employment industry to check whether a job mentioned in the portal is by company or by agent / consultant.
  4. How to check if a job listed online is posted by a company or by an agent (consultant).
    1. Most of the Job portals allow you to see the company name and email ID before applying to them; this is where you get a chance to verify if your resume is going to the right place and your job hunt becomes easy. By visiting company’s website listed on the job listing you can easily check the origin of the job.
  5. Which job portal to choose?
    1. As the majority of job portals don’t charge a job seeker (candidate) so we land up registering our resume with as many job portals as we can which you must avoid because indirectly you are allowing more spammers to send you bulk emails, sell your resume to the agents / consultants and never offer you anything except irrelevant and junk emails. Before registering on any job portal; you must search for jobs which matches to your skills, interest…etc. and check the number of consultant vs. companies availability online, based on the above you can register and start searching and applying for jobs.
