Naukri Vs Monster Vs TimesJobs: Best Jobsite in India 2011January 27th, 2011 Posted by VFreshers
Jobsites have revolutionized the way people look and apply for jobs. In india there are three major players in the jobsite market and these are Naukri, Monster and Timesjobs. Which one is the best and how would you rank these jobsites based on the facilities and tools that they provide the job searcher with. The question arises which of them you will go on to rank the best.
Taking from what the end users have to say they find that all three of them have the same working format, the same tools and resources and offer a plethora of listings of jobs on their portals.
However, going by the people’s consensus Monster is the one that seems to have that teeny-meeny edge over the other two. The reason being there is the question of job alerts that one gets and lots of them with the job mails. This makes the jobsite more user friendly as well keeps the person informed about the jobs of their interest. This saves the person a whole lot of time and effort. Another thing that the users of Monster really like and what sets it apart is the no spam that the users are promised. The users are not bombarded with mails of resume writing and building services and job information along with training that might be of no interest to them.
Having said that all three of them continue to remain amongst the top three players and hold their own niche with their target audience. They are equally popular amongst employees, job searchers and the employers.
The good thing about Monster is that it helps the job search filter out the job offers that are not appropriate to them. They also go the extra mile to offer career counseling and professional networks wherein you can network with professionals from similar field; these include your colleagues and classmates. There are also times when concerns and the solutions to them are posted on their job boards.
Naukri on the other hand has a way of helping you find out the right income levels and what other people in similar positions might be earning. This will go on to give you a clear index about the various job offers that you might be contemplating and which one is the right one to take up. Also, there is the resume flash which highlights your resume. There is also a team that helps you with a professional resume drafting service.
Timesjobs has started a new mobile phone alert using an sms service. This is your chance to register for this service and you get to hear of the latest jobs posted that are of interest to you. This is your best way to get the latest updates and job alerts without going through a whole lot of effort. Timejobs operates in India and the Middle East which gives you a wider coverage.
Therefore, although all of these might look almost same they do have their differentiating factors.
