SMS Job Search

January 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 190

Online job search is quite common these days as there are many job search web sites like naukri, Monster India etc. where you register yourself and search jobs according to your requirement. Almost all such sites allow you to register for free. If you type right keywords then the result that you get is very accurate. You can search jobs based on location, industry, key skills, experience, functional area, and salary criteria.

These sites allow you to save the search results so that you don't have to type the whole information again and can check new postings with different keywords. So searching jobs online could be more effective and convenient than searching though traditional recruitment and placement firms. Besides, you get email and SMS alerts from these sites whenever there is a new job posting that would suit with your job criteria.

The only problem is that you always need internet access to search jobs online. To resolve this problem, many of these sites have come up with new service, SMS job search, where the job seekers can do job hunt right on their mobiles via SMS. They can also apply to jobs, update their profiles, email their CV to the various recruiters, and get job alerts using SMS. This helps to manage the job hunt without internet. All this makes job search fast and easy.

How will you search jobs via SMS? Usually you type keywords on your mobile, send the SMS to the specific number provided by the site and then you receive job alert on your mobile in return. It looks to be simple and easy to use. Now you can search job from anywhere and anytime.

But is it possible to search based of the criteria mentioned above like location, key skills etc? E.g. if you are looking for a job as a Java developer in software then you will have to search based on the keyword Java. But if you are allowed to search only based on industry i.e. software then you might end up in receiving alerts for all the jobs related to software. This can be very frustrating and disturbing because the jobs you get on your mobile may not match well with the preferences you have provided.

Though they say that it is a free service, you will still have to pay for sending SMS. This will cost you a lot if you want to check for the new job postings every day.

So before you use this service first check the functioning of such job sites so that you don't waste your time and money; and find your dream job by SMS.
