Received: the company has received your Resume but has not yet reviewed it.
In process: you have gone through to the selection stage but it does not mean you have been selected.
Discarded: the company thinks your Resume is not a good match for the position.
Finalist: the company is interested in your Resume and you have to wait for them to contact you to inform you whether or not you have been offered the job.

FAQ's

This service allows you to send your resume to any email address. This is a useful option should you wish to send your resume unsolicited to a company that is not on Postnaukri, or perhaps respond to an advert published in a newspaper. To do this, access My Account from the home page by entering your email and password. Once you have entered My Account, click on “Send resume by email”. You will then need to complete a short form, provide the email address you wish to send to, and then click on “Send resume”. If you wish to view the message that the company will receive, click on “Preview” before sending.

A record of any emails sent will be stored in “Consult emails sent”, displaying the date sent, the reference you have included and the email address you sent to. Please note that this information is only stored for a six-month period.

What if I forget my password?

If you have forgotton your password you can ask us to resend it to you by email from the Postnaukri “Sign in” page. Just below the boxes where you enter your email and password you will find the link “Did you forget your password?”.

Click on the link and in the popup that opens up introduce the email you provided when registering and click on “Send email”. You will shortly receive a message in your inbox with instructions on how to reset your password.

I registered with Postnaukri but haven't been contacted by any companies. Why?

Companies carry out their recruitment processes according to their own internal policies. Postnaukri is only responsible for posting the job vacancies and maintaining the database containing candidate resumes. We have nothing to do with the company’s internal recruitment processes.
You can find the status of your applications in your dashboard (My Account).

Some companies contact all the applicants by telephone or email, whether they intend to interview them or not. Others only contact those they have selected as being “Finalists”. However, even then, not all companies actually make contact with all the finalists.

If you have registered with Postnaukri but you haven’t applied for any positions posted by companies you will most likely not receive many job offers. You have to apply for a position that has been posted in order for the company to know that you are interested in the vacancy.

On the Postnaukri home page, you will see a search box where you can specify the fields for your search (by entering a keyword and the state where you want to work). Once you have done a search, select the posting(s) you are interested in. To send your Resume to a company, click on “Apply for this position”. The system will ask you to enter your email address and password. You can then select the Resume you wish to send along with a Cover Letter (optional). The company will receive your application and then contact you should it wish to continue with the process.

How can I change my email job alerts?

You can make any changes to this service using My Account, by clicking on the “Edit” option under “Job Alerts”.

Change the settings for country, state, category or the name of the Alert and click on “Save Alert”.

If you need to delete one of the Alerts that you created, simply click on the “Delete” icon.

What is updating the date of the posting about? What advantages does it have?

The “Update” service means that your postings will be displayed among the new postings posted for that day, and will therefore always appear in a preferential position where they can be easily viewed by candidates. This is a way of optimizing the effectiveness of your postings by ensuring they remain current.

To update your postings, access My Account and click the “Update” link under each posting.

How can we register as a company?

From the Postnaukri click on “Employer post a job”. Carefully complete the registration form . The fields marked with a red asterisks are compulsory.

Once you have completed the process you are then registered and can begin posting vacancies. However, these won’t appear on the page until you have received a telephone call from the Postnaukri Customer Service department to validate your registration details. This process is essential in order to assure our candidates that the companies offering employment are reliable.

This process only needs to be done once. Once your company details have been finished the registration process you will be able to access My Account using your email and password. Here you can change your login details, edit, modify or delete job postings, and view the resumes of the candidates who have responded to your vacancies.

How do we change the details of a posting?

Click on the “Sign In” link and enter your email and password to access My Account.
In My Account you will see a list of all the vacancies you have posted. At the top of the page, you will find a number of boxes that enable you to filter the postings (active, inactive, draft or all).

Each offer is shown on a separate row in the list. Clicking on “Edit” will open the offer form aned allow you to change any fields you choose. Remember, however, that you are unable to modify the “Position”, “Country” or “Category” fields.

When you have made the changes you require, simply click on “Save”. Your offer will now be updated with any changes you made.

How do we look at the resumes we receive?

Click on the “Sign In” link and enter your e-mail and password to access My Account. By default, this page will show all the vacancies you currently have active. If you wish to view your vacancies according to their status, (active, inactive, draft or all), mark the checkboxes on the top part of the screen and click the “Apply” button.

On the far right of each offer, you will see four coloured areas. These refer to the following: blue for resumes that have been received but not yet classified; yellow for those in process; green for finalists, and red for those that have been rejected. If you click on any of the colours you will see the resumes that are contained in each of these four folders.

If you are interested in a candidate, just click on their name. This will display their details along with their cover letter (if the candidate has chosen to send one), followed by their resume.

IMPORTANT: It is essential to properly classify the resumes you receive. Once you have reviewed the candidate’s resume, it is important to your classify their application, marking it as “In Process”, “Finalist” or “Rejected”, as the candidate is able to view this information. If the candidate sees that their application hasn’t progressed from the “Received” folder, they may lose interest in the posting. To classify the resumes you receive, open a resume and select a destination from the “Move selected resumes to” list. “Finalist” means you are interested in the candidate and will probably contact them to arrange an interview. “In Process” means you are still evaluating the candidate, and “Discarded” is for candidates you wish to rule out of the

selection process.

How do we contact candidates?

When a candidate applies for your job vacancy, you will receive the application in your private account
We recommend that you manage the applications you have received by moving them to the appropriate folder (processed, rejected, or finalist) so that you can see at a glance what candidates are in which stage of the selection process. By moving the applications to the corresponding folders, you also provide information to the candidate who is monitoring the status is the application. If you move someone to the Finalist folder s/he will expect you to contact him/her by e-mail or telephone.

You can contact candidates directly by using the data contained in the application.

How can we cancel our account?

Go to the “Sign In” option and introduce your email and password. From My Account, click on “Cancel Acount” and re-introduce your password. You must now fill in the fields in the form and send the information. Once this process is carried out correctly you company will be unsubscribed.

Can we use a quick filter to view the resumes?

When reviewing the resumes received in response to an offer, you will see a list of all the candidates and three columns showing their professional experience, education and place of residence. If you select any of these elements, the system will filter the candidates to only show the details you have specified. The filter works in real time and enables you to quickly view specific details for the candidates you are most interested in.

What does it mean if I categorize a job posting as Pending, Active, Inactive or Draft?

PENDING

Pending postings are those that you placed when registering at Postnaukri, but are waiting for you company to be validated before appearing on our site.

You will receive a telephone call from our Customer Service department to validate the information provided and, this way assure the maximum reliability to the candidates who should decide to apply for the vacancies posted on the website.
ACTIVE
These are vacancies which candidates can view and respond to by sending their resumes.

ARCHIVED
These are vacancies which were previously active but are no longer visible to candidates. They act as a record, showing the resumes that were received for a particular vacancy, but no further applications can be made for the vacancy as the posting is no longer visible on the website.

DRAFT
A draft posting is one that is still not posted on the web page. When the posting is in this state you can add open questions and Recruiting Questions, or modify existing ones. When creating a new posting, it’s best to consider well what recruiting questions to ask the candidates because once the offer is published, the questions cannot be changed. This ensures that all applicants are judged on the same criteria. If it is not yet clear what questions the candidate should be asked, it’s better to “Save as Draft” and finish it later.

What are Recruiting Questions (filter questions)?

Recruiting or Filter Questions are a series of multiple choice questions that the candidate must answer. Each answer is assigned a score so that the resumes can be classified according to the responses given by each candidate.

You are able to create a maximum of 10 questions per offer and assign 5 answers with a different score.

This tool enables you to organise the resumes you receive according to the score they obtain through the responses to your questions. This way, instead of having hundreds of resumes to look through, you can begin with those that achieved the highest scores.

How long can a posting remain online?

An offer can be posted for 60 days, although this period can also be prolonged if required. When this time expires the offer is autoarchived as “Inactive” and will not be visible to candidates.

If you wish to stop your postings from being removed from the website, you can do this in the 5-day period prior to their expiry date. If you edit the posting during this period, you will have the option to “Renew”. Selecting this option will mean your postings will be visible for another 60 days.

In the “My job postings” section select the icon “Edit” for the posting you wish to renew.
