There are more than a hundred job boards in India. Let’s face the truth – landing a job through most of these portals is in most cases, impossible. Well, almost. A large number of job portals have too many job postings to sift through, most of the job posts are unrelated to a specific search, which makes searching for a vacancy specific to your profile tedious, and the most frustrating part is that the chain of application is so long and complex, that it’s highly unlikely that an applicant’s resume will land into the actual recruiter’s inbox.
In such a riff-raff of job search portals and platforms, serious professionals and employers are often looking for efficient job boards. We’ve put together a list of the best job boards in India that are peculiar and helpful for different reasons. Read on to know more.
