I have been using Naukri, I have tried their job listings and database search option, but nothing seems to be working. I am not sure on most trending job portals in India. If you feel I should use some other job portal which could give better results, please feel free to suggest.

Issues that I have faced on naukri:

  • Poor Response
  • Fake Experience
  • Candidates don’t turn up for interview even after multiple calls and followups
  • Candidates who turned up for interview didn’t have skills matching their experience.

Hence, can anyone help me?

  • Suggest, what should I do?
  • How should I close the positions?

We being a startup cannot afford a consultant and pay 8.33% of annual CTC.

  1. Even if you pay for the consultant, the talent pool is the same. He will also use same naukri portal to get the candidates. 

  2. So Chandrasekar, how do we get out of this situation and close the opening. It seems the current breed of designer and developer are not focusing on learning curve and these so called B.Tech & Training Institution are do nothing.
