Top 3 Places to look for a Job..[You can do this sitting at home]

Tutoslive has recently conducted a survey to know how many people are jobless and the reasons behind it.

You can also take part in the survey here. The results of the survey can be seen here .

From the survey we knew that either you are jobless or you know at-least one person who is jobless, and most of the people have no confidence or no hope in getting a job in the near future. Most of them have taken courses privately apart from a college degree and are still in the job hunt. 

We observed that the real problem lies in the Job Hunt. I have personally called some of the people who subscribed on our website www.tutoslive.com and was astonished to know a fact that, people have less knowledge of the places they do search for a job. They either depend on referrals (asking someone to refer them to a job) or post it on Naukri/Monster.

The fact about Naukri/Monster is that, most of the jobs posted there are from consultancies and for experienced programmers. They seldom care about the freshers. Most of the companies out there need contractors who work on a part time basis for a particular project. Fresh graduates also run behind people who are already in the job asking for referrals. But the fact is that your desperation to a job end up in You getting cheated for money or the person may not give a referral.

So keeping that in my mind, I will present the top 3 websites to look for a job and how do you actually search on those websites.

#1 www.linkedin.com

This is my personal favorite. Many of the companies use Linkedin to boost their sales and find the right talent. There are also groups where people post the jobs. You can go to the website by the clicking the link above , If you are there first time, sign up , or login and type a keyword in the search bar, click on the jobs and you see a lot of them. You can see them in the picture below.

You can save the jobs for future reference and you can also even subscribe for similar jobs for similar location.

The next best in business is Skillpages. Skillpages is one website I feel updates the users with real jobs. Unlike Naukri, Monster where they concentrate more on Consultant or contract jobs, Skillpages has some jobs which are posted by the companies alone. All you have to do is visit the website by clicking the link above and if you are there for the first time signup or login. You can search for a keyword and look for jobs. All the jobs will be listed. You can save the keywords and receive emails directly to your inbox about the jobs.

Indeed is the fastest growing Job Portal, which is used by most of the employers. The reason for it to be popular is that it is straightforward. You can submit your resume, and save the job searches to get update. I am not providing the screenshot here since it is pretty understandable.

Along with this, You keep trying with monster, naukri or whatever the website you think can work for you. After all, do not leave anything, we do not know how opportunities come and from where. You can also check other websites like freshersworld.com, quickr.com, and sulekha .com etc.

Why do most freshers find it hard to get jobs?

There are several reasons behind the Student who recently graduated from engineering colleges, who did not get selected in campus recruitment. Here in my post I will highlight a few of them.

 #1 Engineering Students are creative but lack the skills that market require


tutoslive-fresher-jobless-reason-1
"Yes I am creative but I did not know what to put in my resume"
Yes, we study programming languages like C, Cpp, Java, HTML and concepts like Operating Systems, Computer Networks, Algorithms etc. But we do not carry them forward, we read it for examinations. Once the examination is done, the subject knowledge expires. Some of our peers may remember them for the rest of the years, but the syllabus gets outdated once we are come to the industry or real market. As the technology is increasing on folds, our knowledge stays there until we get a job and work real time.

"We write 100 lines for a 8 mark question but cannot answer a simple logic question"

#2 Engineering students enjoy most of their college life and worry when it ends.

"We either spend playing in the classroom or hanging out of the classroom"
We join college, suffer ragging, make friends, more friends and then the life starts. We live in a different world. The best phase of someone's life is the 4 years we spend in the college. We feel the classes boring and canteen interesting. We hate labs and love movie screens. It does not mean we fail in the examinations, we are creative enough to pass through them as mentioned in the #1. We seldom concentrate on the career until we realize that we do not have a job after graduation. Our friends get frustrated and join GATE coaching centers, some fly abroad, some join courses hoping to get a job.

#3 Friends become competitors after graduation

"Be it anything productive, there is a competition"

 We do have competitors in college too, if at all we are a ranker are someone who sits in the first rows. But the real competition starts when we are out of college and our friends deny giving information about their next plan. Of course close friends do pass information and even spy on their friend's competitor. lack of a proper guide to show what;s next is a problem for most of the freshers. What course has a demand, where to learn, which company offers a job in that course, well if we dig, we have more questions than answers. There is no one to answer these questions. All we do is follow someone.

#4 Engineering Students do not know technologies that can fetch a job

 

tutoslive-technologies
"Choosing a technology with less competition and more jobs is an art"

As discussed in #3, we are clueless about most of the technologies. With a very limited knowledge of the market, we follow most of the other students and end up in a very huge competition. It is always better to choose a technology which has less competition or more jobs. Technologies like Javascript, PHP, python, perl have more jobs and less competition and you can end up in a very good career. New trends like content marketing, seo, sem and social media management has been picked up. You can always land in a job with these technologies or you can set up your own company.



As of now, I can only publish these reasons, I continue posting the reasons as an when, they strike my mind.

Until then, happy engineering. Please feel free to leave any comments. Share your thoughts.
