When you buy an 800cc car, the most basic version, if you’re a/c is powerful or if the suspensions are comfortable, you are pleasantly surprised.

Now imagine yourself driving a shiny new SUV that just made you 20 Lac poorer. Suspension & A/c would be the last things on your mind. You would more likely look at the 4-wheel drive cruise-control, ABS features and the elegant leather upholstery.

Ok, the point I am trying to make is, with a superior product the basics are ignored as they are presumed to be present and expected to be better than ordinary.

With Naukri, finding the best, most recent, and most relevant jobs is the basic 800cc model. What becomes your leather upholstery is, when without asking you we delight you with what you have been looking for.
So without trying to sound magnanimous, we would like to appreciate the efforts/work of our Product manager. Product Manager team’s challenge was to improve the user experience while searching for jobs on

So after you have spent some time on our site, finding & applying for jobs, the logic built by Product Manager is smart to know your preferences and basis which it intelligently but discreetly suggests you “Naukri recommends”!

So when you log-into your account you see our recommendation:

And again after you apply to jobs and land on to apply confirmation page:

Our idea was to learn from your preferences and prompt you, without disturbing you.

Would you like to share your feedback with Product Manager? Write to him, he’ll be eagerly waiting.

Everyone loves numbers/data/MIS….Isn’t that what we check each morning when we reach office? How many mails have I received? How many meetings are scheduled for today? What all reports do I need to submit by this week-end…..the list for numbers and data is endless.

So we thought you’d be eager to know how many and which consultants/recruiters have seen your CV on today….
or for the entire one month

You can just get in here once you are logged in to see a message Resume Views by Recruiters: 57 times View Details. All the recruiters/consultants who have viewed your resume may or may not contact you for the simple reason of cut throat competition. May be you are the most suitable candidate for the vacancy, but someone is even more than you. May be you have all the potential to turnaround the business, but someone else was destined for it. But not an issue, this is not the last train, and stations are many. Just be active, keep logging in, updating profile, searching for job and applying the most relevant job to you, all with more alacrity.

Besides being just numbers, what it can also tell you is, whether your resume is described/formatted/filled-in in a manner that it catches attention.

Tell us if you found this helpful.

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.
