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 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 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 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 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 profiles. One call can make all the difference to your Career.

Wish you all the best for your jobsearch! Product Team

Every member of 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 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.
