While searching for the dream job on Naukri, each person will have their own criteria on what constitutes the “perfect job” and why he needs a change at this moment. There could be many reasons why people look for a change
- Ajay has 6 years of experience as a Mainframe software engineer - I need to move to a better role , I am stuck in my current position
- Bharat is sales professional with 2 years experience - I have some personal issues, need to move to another city
- Chitra is a HR person with a small retail firm- I need to move to a bigger brand name, it will help me in my future
- Dinesh works as an accountant in a manufacturing firm - I need more money!!!
Of course, all of these could be excuses to get out because you have Hari Sadu for a boss
Once you have decided that you need to take the plunge, how do you translate these thoughts into a search and find that dream job? Let’s try and translate these thoughts into a search on Naukri
You would be familiar with the search bar and in the keywords field you could enter skills, designation, company name, education or a combination of these.
So if you are looking for a change in role as Ajay is, you could look at entering your expected role and years of experience to find jobs that match your expectation. e.g. if Ajay were a software programmer and has 6 years of experience, he could search for “Project Manager” or “Project lead” askeywords and by entering “6” years of experience so that only the relevant jobs turn up. This would give him all jobs which offer these positions on the site. He could then shortlist the jobs by going through the details available in them. But this is a time consuming way, and we have a solution for you. Read on to find out….
A lot of such positions are also dependant on skills that you already have; – if you are a mainframe programmer, it is likely that you would move into Mainframe project management itself.
So an easier way is to enter “Mainframe” as keyword and let the results guide which jobs you want to apply to. Here I have entered “Mainframe” as keyword and 6 years of experience and the result is more accurate and relevant:
Plus, on the left of the search results page, you see an option to “Refine by Role” – which lets you select the role for which the job is. Since Ajay is looking for a Project Lead role, he could click on Project lead and find the most appropriate jobs. This method allows you to be more open ended in terms of role (as there could be multiple nomenclatures within industry for the same role) but specific in skill so that you could arrive at the right job.
In the following posts, we will see how to solve Bharat, Chitra and Dinesh’s problems. In the meanwhile put in your comments and let us know whether you found this information useful.
