Do not subscribe to paid services such as resume flash and forward to gulf countries of Naukri.com or monster.com because some two penny executive will sell your data personal info to thousands of telemarketing, credit card selling and payment recovery agents. Involvement of management of these sites with two penny executives can not be ruled out.

Also do not put your phone number and or address even while registering under normal processes (if not paid service).. employer will always send you an e-mail in case they want to contact you.

Under any event don’t buy any product from these two sites. You will be sure shot target of telemarketers and cheap publicity.

nice one..its helpful to me making my job portal website...

naukri.com does not offer good service. Very very poor service. I advice you not take their services

your CV should have some value. Its easier to blame the portal, BUT some substance should be there.

account manager of monster ay hyderabad is really a gobbet.dont go.

Please do not take any preminum services of times job.com.it is worst portal ever i knew

i think naukri.com is the best amongst all...believe me guys

i am in this field for past 7 years and have used subscriptions of all the job portals...service wise..quality wise..feature wise naukri leads all the way..

they charge a little higher bt u can always bargain with them and get the best rates..

Monster is very good service provider compare to naukri.com and times job

Yash, Yagna, Dinky, Sandy...you seem to be agents of Monster.com! :) You have praised Monster in a few words, all in the month of January, all with poor English, all without providing a reason why you liked Monster. In fact, you seem to be the same person with different names. :) I am disappointed that Monster would hire such a low-quality agent to promote their company on forums. Shame on Monster.com

that was a cool payback

I believe that shine.com is coming into pictures where it has outstanding performance and leading above monster and timesjobs as well as reaching to the heights of naukri...

I think Timesjobs is the best one these days. It is the most user friendly website for candidates as well as recruiter's. They have mad a lot of changes in their portal since past 1 year and they have really improved.
