India is the second largest populated country after china, and has about 63% of the country’s population in the age group of 20-30 years. It clearly shows that there is a high demand for jobs for the youth of our country and this make the demands for online job portals high. Job portals work as a middleman to the candidate and employer. In job portals you can apply for any job online, you don’t have to go anywhere for this. All you need to do is, put up your resume on that portal and employers from various companies will read your resume and if they find you a suitable candidate, they will call you for an interview or the next round of evaluation for the job.
Job portals help us save our time and within very short time periods, many companies are able to access your resume. This helps because then we don’t have to go to every company door. Online job portals work in that way, were we can get a job easily and in a short period of time. If we do things the traditional way, we have to go to each and every company and give separate resumes. However, online job portals do the work for you first and give access of your resume to thousands of companies across the globe and help to grow as professionally and increase our eligibility.
Online job portals are accessible worldwide so any small to huge company can get your resume. This makes more opportunities for the candidate to get the best job. Consequently, this breaks our traditional system where we have to go everywhere, without being certain that we have acquired the job. We don’t have any option in that traditional way. Job portals have more variety and they also have all the job information clearly written down for everyone to see.
Another problem with a physical approach to job hunting is that you end up approaching less companies. When you do the menial labour online and see it through, right till the interview round, things are moving much faster and the management gets back to you much faster. Therefore, it is safe to say that online job portals have a greater advantage to a physical approach because of its reach and scalability.
