Rahul / Shalaka / Shubhangi / Poonam :
* MM will be an ONLINE tool which can be freely downloaded from our web site and also from other web sites such as Download.com
* It should be a small tool ( 4 / 5 Mb ), with dot net framework which can be either embedded into the tool or will get automatically downloaded on user's harddisk, without his being aware
* A person who has downloaded MM ( from anywhere ),should be able to email it to any no of people
* After downloading, MM will get " activated " only after the User ,
# uploads his text resume into the tool
# selects his " Primary Function / Skill " ( any one only ) , from the drop-lists in the ACTIVATE page
# selects " date " of activation from calendar
( It is quite possible that the " No of Tools Activated " may far exceed the " No of tools downloaded " , due to copying / emailing )
# Upon activation , our server will,
> assign a unique " User No " to that user
> store his text resume as well as his " Function/Skill " selection against
this " User No "
> In course of time , when we develop a robust " Parsing " software , we
will parse the text resume and store all personal data about that user
into a database
# There should be a facility for the user to edit his ,
> Text resume
> Function / Skill , selected earlier
when he does , our database too will get updated simultaneously
# By comparing with our Server Database , MM will find / extract the Keywords from the text resume ( for the Function / Skill earlier selected by that user ) , and
calculate the Raw Score , as per the Weightage assigned to each keyword
This will be stored ( semi-permanently )
Of Course , this will change if User edits text resume at anytime
# Working like MYRIAD , MM will extract the job advts behind each link on a job-search page
Unfortunately, a job-search page contains many links other than job advts links
In fact, non job-advt links far exceed the job advt links !
For our purpose , we have to avoid / ignore / eliminate , these non jobadvt links
MYRIAD has provision for user to select , values from
* " FROM LINK " drop list
* " TO LINK " drop list
This adds one manual intervention / selection . It would be ideal if we could avoid this . If not , we follow the same procedure
# Once the job advts hiding behind the job advt links are " harvested " ( usually 10 to 50 per page ) , MM will try to find Function / Skill related Keywords - " relevant " to that candidate's resume - and COMPUTE the SCORE
# MATCH INDEX can be calculated as per a tabulation of :
* Column 1............. Advt Number ( 1 , 2 , 3 etc )
* Column 2.............. Raw Score of Job Advt ( 32, 45 , 61 etc )
* Column 3............... Raw Score of Text Resume ( 60 , 60 , 50 )
* Column 4............... Match Index ( 32/60 ; 45 / 60 : 62 / 60 )
* Column 5 ............ % Percentage ( 52 % / 33 % / 102 % )
The advts will then get displayed in the descending order of % , as shown below tabulation :
* Column 1........ Advt No
* Column 2........ Advertise Company Names
* Column 3 ....... Position / Vacancy Name
* Column 4....... Posting City Name
* Column 5 ........ Match Index ( 102 / 52 / 33 etc )
* Column 6........ Select ( Check Boxes )
May be we should try to extract the email ID from eacj job advt ( if given in the advt )
Naukri provides email IDs but Monster / Timesjobs / Jobsdb etc do not
We should not display the email Ids in the tabulation
# Select ( tick in Check Box ) , will open that job advt . After reading , candidate can decide to " Apply Online " and click relevant button
Of course , this would require him to earlier deposit his resume on that job site
This would also require that , before starting the job search , he would need to log in as a " Registered User "
# As of now , I am unable to think of a foolproof method which will allow a user to ,
> " Apply Online " against any job advt in Naukri , but with his PROFILES developed on our web site ( - not the text resume deposited in Naukri )
If we can pull this off , it would have a great marketing advantage !
You may consider the following possibility :
* We also display email ID of the job advertisers in the search results table
If a candidate decides to click on any email Id ( of a job advt ) , then our software picks up that email ID and inserts it in
A candidate , then , can surf pages after pages of Naukri job search results ( displayed in descending order in MM )
From each page , he may click on 1/2/3 email IDs , which keep getting accumulated in into our RESUME COURIER
When he has gone through 24 pages ( of job search results ) and selected ( say ) 43 job advts worth applying , he moves to RESUME COURIER page , logs in ( with his User Id / Password ) and clicks SUBMIT
At one go , our RESUME COURIER software will pick up his PROFILES and forward it ( with appropriate covering letter , similar to what I have given for Resume Blast ) to all 43 advertisers !
As against this , should he decide to click open each select job advt on Naukri and decide to " Apply Online " ,
> he can only send his " text " resume
> he will need to click " Apply Online " 43 times !
This seems such a great idea , if it can be successfully executed !
We are giving the candidate , a far superior option , but , we are not forcing him to register on our web site
Once again , MM will " market " IndiaRecruiter.net in a very subtle fashion - and very indirectly
If a job advt does not contain email Id , a candidate can always click ( check box ) to apply online with his text resume
In fact , this will be the case , with most of the web sites - since these do not display the email Ids
Another bye-product ( of candidate applying through RESUME COURIER method ) :
We will be able to compile a very comprehensive " APPLICATION HISTORY " of each user candidate as shown in a tabulation as below :
CANDIDATE NAME :........ Unique No ............... Activation Date :...........
Col 1......... Serial No
Col 2......... Date Applied
Col 3........ Company Name
Col 4........ Vacancy Name
Col 5........ Posting City
Col 6........ Match Index
Col 7........ Response ( can be entered by candidate )
We can make available such HISTORY to a registered candidate in his own ,
where he can then fill up " Response Details " in the last column , on his own , at any time
In the above tabulation , may be we can even provide a column for the job advertiser's email Id
By clicking on this email Id , Outlook will open and the candidate can send a REMINDER to that job advertiser , to inquire about his application !
This could be a great " Follow Up " tool for the candidate
He does not even need to remember to WHOM he has applied , WHEN and for WHAT position !
Let us do this !
