Naukri offers a plethora of jobs and one can easily find them if one knows how to use Naukri.
But there’s another side to Naukri, where the employers decide which candidates they want to shortlist and interview for the job openings at their organisations.
Recruiters can access the database of Naukri to find the most suitable candidates for the vacancy they have at their company and contact them directly, without posting a job on Naukri.
This means there are a lot of recruiters that are actively hiring at any given moment without you ever coming across their job posts, because they’re not posting any. In fact, almost 70% of hiring on Naukri.com happens this way!
This employer side is what we call Resdex.
