Nearly 63% of respondents claimed that job portals such as TimesJobs/PocketJobs are the most effective medium to get hired at the entry-level. Instead of simply applying for jobs, candidates prefer to directly call (46%) and mail the recruiters (44%).

In the survey, candidates highlighted that while applying for jobs they would like to see information in the following order:

  • Role
  • Company Name
  • Domain/Industry

Job change pattern

About 96% of entry-level staff think of job change within one year of working revealed the survey. The top five reasons cited for seeking new job opportunities were (in order of preference): 

  1. Salary
  2. Promotion
  3. Role change 
  4. Benefits 
  5. Nearby locations 

The PocketJobs survey went to analysing how these respondents had landed their first job. Most (44%) survey takers said that they got their first job through an internet search, followed by 40% who said that they got their career breakthrough a reference. Another 10% of respondents said that HR consultants helped them get their first job and the remaining 6% said that they landed their first job reference through a newspaper. 

Commenting on these findings Mr Sanjay Goyal, Business Head, TimesJobs & TechGig said, “Internet search is the preferred mode of job search, especially at the entry-level where professionals want to quickly check for new jobs, apply right away and find more opportunities. Our survey also hints at the same. Another revelation from our survey is that 97% of respondents said that English is the preferred language, even as compared to Hindi and vernacular languages. This also subtly hints that the user mindset for internet portals is maturing in India”.
