Let us begin with asking you a simple question. Why do you think we ask for your mobile number?

As you would have guessed, we ask for it so that recruiters can contact you for matching job opportunities.

Some of us forget this simple thing and knowingly or unknowingly, provide our incorrect contact details. Due to this, when a recruiter dials the number mentioned in your profile, she is unable to do so & the opportunity is lost.

We at naukri.com try our best to communicate to you the importance of verified email id & mobile number. We are sure that those of you who listened, have benefited from it.

Taking this forward, we have now introduced another new feature – Duplicate Number Alert. From now on, when any user enters a mobile number matching the mobile number of an existing registered user, a Duplicate Number Alert email will be sent prompting the users to verify their mobile numbers.

The idea is simple. Only the one who owns the number should be able to display it to the recruiters. So if you get any such email, just verify your mobile number ownership by following a few simple steps.

[Note: We do not ask for your username or password in an email. Only enter your usernamepassword on a webpage when the addressURL bar has a Naukri.com address in it]

Wondering why would someone enter someone else’s number? Here are a few reasons why:

1. You changed your mobile number and forgot to update your naukri.com profile:-
The new user to whom the mobile operator assigned the new number updated that in her profile.
In such a case, on successful mobile number verification, the old number will be removed from your profile as the ownership has changed

2. You unknowingly entered a wrong number:-
We all are prone to making typo errors. All you need to do is update your profile with your correct mobile number if you get such an alert.

3. You don’t want to share your mobile number with naukri.com and entered a random number matching someone else’s mobile number:-
That’s not good. You should always provide your own contact number otherwise the recruiters will not be able to contact you.

Let’s all make sure we keep our contact info updated in our naukri.com profiles. One call can make all the difference to your Career.

Wish you all the best for your jobsearch!

If you are not yet registered with us, this blog post is for you! You get the following benefits as our registered member

1. Access to unadvertised jobs – Naukri.com is widely used by recruiters and head hunters to meet their hiring needs. As you might know, not every job opportunity is posted on the internet publicly. In fact, many of the best opportunities are never posted on any job board or newspaper. For these unadvertised and niche jobs recruiters personally get in touch with jobseekers. So, if you are a registered jobseeker on Naukri.com, you are likely to be contacted by recruiters personally for thousands of such unadvertised job opportunities!

2. Convenience to apply to jobs in one click – As an unregistered jobseeker, you have to fill a form every time you apply for a job. But as a registered member you enjoy a seamless, one-click-Apply experience.

3. The best jobs delivered in your Mailbox – As a registered member you will receive the best matching jobs considering your current work profile, preferred locations and future aspirations. But before we can do so, please tell us more about your career preferences.

4. Apply to jobs from your mobile– Now you don’t have to be connected to your laptop to apply for the job you always wanted. Our mobile site lets registered members apply to jobs from their mobile phone or handheld device – anywhere, anytime!

1. Write a compelling Resume Headline: Your Resume Headline needs to be interesting, and has to reflect your experience and skills to catch the attention of  a recruiter. The more precise it is, the more chances of it getting noticed by recruiters. For example, writing “Experienced in software industry” is too generic, but “3 years experience in Java/J2EE” highlights your experience and your skill-set precisely.  Similarly, ‘Executive in chemical industry” is too broad and doesn’t really highlight your  designation or level of experience; whereas, “Senior manager-Operations, with 7 years in the chemical and polymer industry” does.

2. Enter the right keyskills: The keyskills you enter in your Naukri Profile need to reflect your  professional strengths. What is the best way to figure that out? Here is a tip: Fill the blanks in the following statements: I am proficient in ______; I have developed expertise in ______; I have done projects in the field of _____; I have a certification in ______; I have a sound knowledge of _____.  Whatever you write in these blanks are your ‘keyskills’. Write your Technical skills, soft skills, and tools and softwares that you know well.

3. Update your profile regularly: Make sure you update your profile at least once in 6 months. 6 months is a long time and most people add new skills, take up new responsibilities, or complete new projects in that much time – and that information should be reflected in your resume.  Moreover, your total years of experience changes in 6 months and needs to  be updated. Every week lakhs of jobseekers update their Naukri profile with their recent professional accomplishments – so if your resume is outdated by more than 6 months you may be losing out on those new job opportunities.

4. Fill in relevant fields in your profile: Recruiters search candidates based on various parameters of candidates: such as Functional Area, Education, Current Salary, Keywords, Skills, Designation, Company name etc. This means there are multiple ways in which your Resume can show up in front of a recruiter. So the more information you enter in your profile the more the chances that your resume shows up. Make sure your profile completeness bar displayed in the My Naukri Home page is close to 100%

5. Verify your contact details: Recruiters hesitate to contact candidates with unverified contact details. When an employer sees that your mobile number and e-mail id are verified, he/she is more likely to contact you for new job opportunities.
