JOB SEARCH FOR FRESHERS     

            In last few years it has become very difficult for freshers to find suitable jobs. Based on my Industry HR experiences as well as Placement Consultancy Experiences, I am trying to give some guidelines to all the freshers irrespective of qualifications or likings  on how to do effective job search. Of course, there is still no guarantee for everyone to be accomodated by job market; but anyone who follows these guidelines can be very reasonably be expected to bag a good job in one to two months. 






                                              PART I – SEARCH ON JOB PORTALS

(a)     Proceed as under :-
(i)                 Register your CV on all the job portals known to you. Currently www.naukri.com, www.monsterindia.com, www.timesjobs.com are popular with industries as well as with  placement recruiters.  
(ii)               On each of the portals enter keywords that identifies your skills, designation, job category and location and search. You will get list of vacancies available.  

(b)    Keep a register and patiently note details of jobs that are of interest to you along with name, email id and contact number of each recruiter mentioned in the job vacancy details.  Do this for all the Job Portals mentioned.

(c)    Write personalized emails to all recruiters singly, one by one. Do not use Job Portal links to apply.

(d)   After one day of application, ring up the recruiter one by one, wish them nicely and ask them if they have received your mail and CV. If not, resend.

(e)   Follow up with the recruiters on weekly basis about shortlisting, interview schedule etc.
