Online job search has revolutionized the world. Most of the companies or employers have become completely dependent on online job portals for their recruitment needs.
However, before searching for a job, we must have an idea of good and trustworthy job portals.
In this article, I have listed down the 7 best job websites in India. However, before starting this article, two very important tips, which will make your job search easier and convenient are given below.
Tips for job search through websites:
1. Always update your resume (daily, if possible). This is very simple but very very effective.
Because the updated resumes always appear on the top of the search result. Hence, whenever recruiters/companies will search for a potential candidate for their company, they will be able to see the recently updated resumes at the top, and chances of getting shortlisted for those candidates will be more.
2. Focus on recently published jobs
Because millions of candidates are searching for jobs online. Whenever a job is posted, candidates start applying to those jobs, hence the one who will apply early will have a better chance of getting shortlisted.
To find recently posted jobs, you can use the date as a filter. Most of the websites give this option.
The above two tips are very effective hence always maintain a habit to follow these tips. Now we will see the list of most popular and effective job website in India, These are the following;

NOTE: Many a time we receive phone calls from some of the above-mentioned job portals or websites for paid services, I would suggest not to pay money to their paid programs. From my experience, the paid services are purely a wastage of money and time.
