There are many factors that recruiters and employers consider when searching and short-listing candidates for a job. One of those many factors is sometimes the Preferred Location mentioned by candidates. That is, say, if a job requirement is for the city of Mumbai, then the recruiter is more likely to contact a candidate who prefers to work in Mumbai than a candidate who has either not mentioned a preference at all, or has mentioned his/her preference to work in, say, Hyderabad.

Therefore, if there are cities that you strongly prefer to work in, then make sure that you mention those cities as your Preferred Locations – it will increase your chances of getting shortlisted for the suitable opportunity in that city. Ofcourse, we understand that you may have more than one city/region that you would like to find your next job in, and that is why you can select multiple cities/regions as your Preferred Locations in Naukri.com.

Now that you know about benefits of creating multiple profiles & most probably already have created one, we give you another important feature to utilize your multiple profiles.

If you have more than one profile, when you apply to a job, you will be given an option to select the profile with which you want to apply to that particular job. So how does it help?

Since all your profiles would (& ideally should) highlight your specific skill sets and professional background, not every profile is suitable for every kind of job. Different jobs require you to position yourself differently sometimes. That is when recruiters would get to see your details which fit in the job requirements the most, and this increases your chances of getting shortlisted. Simply select the right profile for every job you apply to, from the Profile Selection Page.

If, however, you do not wish select a different profile on every apply, this feature can be turned off from the “My Naukri” page below “My Profiles”.

Below are some screenshots for your reference-

Every member of Naukri.com has the flexibility to create multiple profiles. With a single account, you can create multiple profiles with a separate set of details and even a different attached resume. You can choose to have any one of those profiles as ‘Active’ (that is, searchable by recruiters), and you can apply to a particular job with any of those profiles.

For instance, a fresher (or even a recent MBA graduate) might not want to restrict herself/himself to a particular field to start the career in. A fresher is open to all kind of good opportunities and since it’s the beginning of a career, the more the options, the better start a fresher gets.  To apply to different kinds of jobs, the fresher, or the MBA, might want to use different profiles.

This may also be very beneficial for users with experience in multiple backgrounds. A single profile cannot do justice to their expertise and their achievements that span across multiple fields/Industries. By creating multiple profiles they can also select to display/let the recruiters view the most suitable profile.

Creating multiple profiles is very simple. One can follow the steps mentioned below –

Step 1 – Login to you Naukri.com account using your Email id & password

Step 2 – Under the ‘MyNaukri’ tab on the Navigation bar on top, click on ‘Add a New Profile’ and follow the instructions.

Step 3 –Repeat above steps if you want to create more multiple profiles.

Step 4 – Select the one profile you want to make “Active” (searchable by recruiters) out of all the profiles you’ve created. You can still, however, apply to a job using any of these multiple profiles.

If you look at the last couple of years, mobile phones/SMS have changed the way you connect with friends, family and work. So, then, could mobile phones also change the way you manage your next career move? That’s the question the Naukri team set out to answer, and in the process created a suite of mobile/SMS based solutions for you.

There are four major activities you engage in when planning the next career move – search for jobs, apply to jobs, send resume to potential employers, and fourth, maintain a professional profile/resume that is up-to-date with your recent achievements at work.

Until ten years ago people did all this by reading through job ads in newspapers, preparing hard copy resumes on typewriters, sending them by post, and they updated their resumes only just before changing jobs. Then, the Internet and Email revolutionized all that – you could edit your resume in a jiffy on your personal computer, search for jobs on job portals, apply to them online, and also email your resume to anyone whenever required. That’s great, but there is only one little problem with that – you need frequent access to a computer, internet and email to do all that.

Our lives are now faster, we are busier, and we may not always be next to a computer. That is why Naukri.com has now launched a suite of Mobility Solutions. By bringing the power of internet job search to your mobile phone, Naukri.com now ensures that you never miss out on any job opportunity.

We didn’t want to just bring the Naukri.com website to the small screen of mobile phones. We wanted you to be able to conduct all the four major activities – get jobs, apply to them, email your resume, and update your profile – from your mobile phone, even if the mobile phone does not have a GPRS/internet connection.

So, for members of Naukri.com who have a GPRS connection, we have introduced the WAP site at m.naukri.com. For members who do not have a GPRS/internet connection in their phones, we have the SMS Tools – JobsOnSMS to get jobs matching your profile, SMS Apply to apply to jobs, ExpressCV to email your resume, and CVNotes for micro-updates to your profile. (These services are free from Naukri.com)

To learn more about each of these services, click on the links below. You will be amazed by what your phone can do for your next career move.

Your boss probably thinks you are already overpaid. How do you know s/he isn’t wrong? That’s why, Naukri PayCheck.

One of the reasons we change jobs, move cities, or get a higher education is to earn a higher salary. Sometimes making such changes requires a leap of faith and involves trade-offs that are not easy, and we ask, “Is it worth making this change?” – and we seek that answer in the size of our paycheck . Even those of us who are not making any change ask, “Am I being paid right? What can I do to earn more?”

To figure that out we see what people doing similar jobs are earning. However, often it is difficult to find enough number of people doing similar jobs to correctly compare our salary with. Then how do you know what your chances are of earning more elsewhere?

These questions are age-old, but with Naukri PayCheck, the answers may have never been better. Naukri PayCheck, based on self-reported, consistent and comprehensive salary information across multiple functional areas, experience levels, industries and cities, provides an exhaustive solution to your salary queries.

With Naukri PayCheck, you can find out what people with a profile exactly as yours are earning. You can determine how your salary can change with time, or if you move cities, or if you decide to switch industries, or if you upgrade your education. You can establish how much to ask while negotiating a salary offer during an interview or during appraisals. You can benchmark your salary against people you consider your competition, your peers, and even the person reading this blog right opposite your desk. You can read brief profiles of people earning more or less than you, and see the top cities, industries and companies that reportedly pay the highest salaries for your profile. Last but not the least, you can directly look at job vacancies for profiles that pay the most.

Thus, Naukri PayCheck tries to address all the questions that might pop in your mind while mulling over the your salary.

Now, for all the information that can be gleaned out of this tool, it might take some users a bit of time to figure it all out. So, we suggest you play around with the tool – click on links and dropdowns, add curves, check out the numbers, read the FAQ – basically warm up to the tool, and within a few minutes you should be an expert at it.

Bear in mind that Naukri PayCheck helps you understand how much you could earn, not necessarily how much you should earn. We get compensated according to the qualifications we have earned, the role we are in, the city we live in, the experience we have gained. But what we get paid also depends on our achievements, how well we interviewed, the college we graduated from, and also, a fair bit of luck. Finally, the size of our paycheck also depends on the choices we make – going for that MBA, or switching industries mid-career, etc. It is the sum total of the quantifiable, the unquantifiable, and the choices we make that decides what we earn. Naukri PayCheck, which talks only about the quantifiable, measureable parameters, will tell you what you could earn. It will tell you the possibilities you can explore, should you want to explore them.

We hope Naukri PayCheck aids you well in your decisions regarding your career moves. If it does, let us know. If it doesn’t, let us know how it can.

Sometimes you want to apply to a job but may not have access to the Naukri.com website. How, then, would you apply to that job? That’s when you can use SMS Apply. Now, you can now apply to jobs from your mobile without going to the website. You’ll be surprised by the number of situations when this comes in incredibly handy. Here are some we could think of:

1. When you have access to your Job Alert mail but cannot apply online because Naukri.com is blocked in your office

2. When you search jobs on GTalk, using NaukriOnChat, but can’t apply because you are not registered on Naukri.com with a Gmail ID

3. When you come across Naukri.com jobs in print magazines, while travelling or at home, and do not have instant internet access

4. When you receive jobs through SMS and want to apply to them

How do you use it?

You would have noticed a 5 digit JobID for each job in our Job Alert emails, in NaukriOnChat, and in the Naukri jobs printed in magazines. To apply to these jobs via an SMS, you have to simply type in APPLY followed by the JobID and send to 56070 from your mobile phone. For example, if the JobID is A1B2C, you would type Apply A1B2C and send it to 5607055.

Let us know if you liked this service (or if you didn’t).
