In addition, the massive database of over two hundred thousand better paying jobs available from over 20,000 recruiters, including blue-chip companies from India and abroad, ensures that the search always yields results.
As I had already posted about acquiring the database of Cyber Media Careers Limited for providing highly-skilled IT & technology candidates with the best career opportunities, I will like to mention here some Outstanding features of TimesJobs that makes it one of the most innovative and promising online recruitment portal :-

  • Drop Down menus
Drop Down menus on mouse over, from the Top Bar for Searching Jobs, My, Job Fairs & Career Services, reducing the number of clicks job-seekers has to make to take them to their destination.

  • Click to Log In
Click to Log In on the top right corner of the screen, causes a login box to appear on the screen removing the need to open a new page for it.

  • Visibility of the most used features of a jobsite
The search and register functions on the home page, have been given high prominence.

  • Browse Jobs
Hidden just below the Search & Register function is a whole range of options, waiting to be discovered - ranging across the most popular industries, to browsing by function, level and location, all accessible by expanding the banner with the “+” sign.

  • The Fine Tune Search
This feature allows a jobseeker to fine-tune their search across a host of options, from the left hand column, which clearly defines all the sub categories, one after another, empowering job-seekers to filter and fine tune their search. The options for fine tuning job searches range across Specialisation, Work experience, Industry, Date of posting and even Salary & Part time jobs. The beauty of this feature is that the options are clearly described with the number of vacancies mentioned in brackets alongside the results.

  • Voice Resumes also has the world’s first voice resume service to its credit. The service is exclusively targeted at the Business Process Outsourcing Industry in its first phase. Available as a seamless service on, potential, and existing BPO employees can now “speak and record” their resumes, including answering a few typical questions and read a randomly system-chosen paragraph as part of their online resume. The entire technology of this voice suite exclusively resides on portal.
