    My final semester exams finished last week.
    I was thinking about putting up my resume on these job portals. But since my result will come by the end of July, my resume will be incomplete.

    So should I post my profile now? Or should I wait till my result comes?

    Are these job portals at all useful for freshers? Or are they beneficial only for people with experience?

    Extremely effective for spamming your inbox. That's for sure.

    However, go ahead and post your profile. As they say, More is Better.

    No idea about freshers, but ~90%+ experienced people switch through them. (in IT sector, no idea about rest)

    Also, you might consider sharing your resume here - as there are many folks from various companies from various domains which might 'refer' you their companies.

    btw, has anyone have any luck with LinkedIn jobs?

    Do register on these 3 sites...and set a job alert/regularly check the sites for posts in relevant field...

    At least you will get to know about the ongoing walk-ins for freshers and plan to start attending if you are eligible...

    the site 'freshersworld' used to send the details of Walk-ins for most major cities.
    Subscribe to their mails (btw, I dunno how is it now. last I have seen 3/4 years back)

    Naukri is great. I would get 2-3 calls a week when I was looking to switch.
    Shine and Monster only have spam.

    Got two international calls...
    The profile was found via linkedIn...
    So, I think recruiters outside india do scan LinkedIn for prospective candidates... :)

    As a fresher, yes, Naukri might not be the best place, but what the hell, its free, go ahead a register yourself. You ought to be looking for those campus recruitment or the newspaper where they post opening for freshers

    Personally I use , it is a job aggregator from various sources like Naurki, Monster, Linkedin, Shine, Headhonchos etc. Its easier to search for jobs that way instead of visiting all sites personally. Plus put up a job alert so it'll mail you the new jobs each day.
