Creating and processing Employee Portfolios - simplified


As a common practice followed till the introduction of epfu, prospective employers and employment agencies invite resumes from potential candidates.

The common means of response are as follows:

  • Candidate fills up details on the Advertiser's website
  • Candidate uploads resume on Advertiser's website or submits resume by e-mail
  • Candidate faxes or couriers resume

In the above described mode of resume processing, organizations face the challenges of

  • Finding the few genuinely suitable candidates against the thousands of resumes received
