The internet has the potential to increase your job search and access job listings from a wide variety of authentic job portals. It puts a thousand recruitment adverts at your fingertips. Job search engines such as monster.com, indeed.com and naukri.com enjoy immense popularity among job seekers in India as they can be customized to show thousands of relevant job openings in your area as well as in other parts of the country or world.
Here is a look at some ways you can utilize the internet’s potentials for your next job search:
