In most of the job seekers case, these 3 Reasons plays a vital role; not to get any interview calls from the online job portals. Online job websites like Indeed, Naukri, Monster or any other job portals.


Interview call

Are you are in dilemma of not getting interview calls, then it is obvious you must have questions like; why am I not getting calls for job interviews? I applied for 100 jobs but not getting interview calls.

And it might be possible you got frustrated and want to know eagerly; how to get interview calls? Now leave your frustration, because you are on the right page. And this post gives the answer how can you get the interview calls with some profile modification.

I want to tell you a short story about my life. During my last year of college, i  build my profile on every knowing job websites like you do. But unfortunately, I also faced the same issues; not to get any interview calls from the online job portals.

So experience I am sharing with you is personal (I also got frustrated!). Thank God! at last after making some changes on my profile (according to one of my senior); I got my first interview call and placed!

Do you know? Every job portals in the world have set some criteria and process for job seekers, who are waiting for an interview call.

That is to say; if you are searching a job and expect to get an interview call through these portals. Then you have to follow all those criteria set by job portals. If you complete those criteria, then I am sure you will definitely get a call from the company HR.

Probably you are not aware of these types of existing criteria and doing some mistake with your registered profile. Findcareerinfo will help you to complete those criteria.

One of my mentors says, rejected from interviews is not a big deal but if you don’t get any call for the interview it’s a crime, which you make with your career.

From now onwards don’t do any more crime, and let’s start with our list of the reasons.


[1] Reason not to get interview calls: Uncomplete Profile

Interview Call

Most of the people don’t know the importance of the profile completeness and they only complete it to the nearly 80% of the profile. Whether your profile has 98% or 99% completed you will never get any call until your profile is 100% complete.

The profile completeness has a very significant role in getting calls from a recruiter. Why am I saying that? Because your profile won’t reach in front of the HR.


Now you will say that if somehow my profile managed to reach the HR. Ok, let’s assume your profile has reached the HR.

Why would he/she shortlist an incomplete profile as compared to 100 percent completed profile? Simple the answer is ‘NO’! He/she would never ever select your incomplete profile.

Whether your profile reaches or not, there is no point in arguing if your profile is not 100% completed. Usually, you will simply face rejection from HR because your profile is incomplete.

In summary, the most important point is you must have to complete 100 % profile before applying for jobs.

Tips: Fill every section, which is required to complete your profile up to 100%, whether that section irrelevant to you, fill something on that place.       

Note: Your profile visibility setting should be Visible as Active Jobseeker.


[2] Reason not to get interview calls: Being InActive in Job portals

Being inactive is one of the reason not to get any interview calls from the online job portals. Therefore being active on Job Portal helps to maintain your profile on top of search results. If you want your profile on top, you have to follow this two method

Method 1  Keep updating your profile on a daily basis, for that you have to make changes to your profile every day. This method projects your profile as you are an active job searcher.

Method 2  You should have to apply for at least one job every day from your job portal website. Method number 2 shows, this candidate truly need a job.


If you actively follow this two method for 10 to 15 days, absolutely you will get minimum 2 to 4 calls a day.

Tips: You can apply a trick to show you are updating your profile every day such as delete your resume/CV and upload it again or go to any section and change some small words.


[3] Reason for not getting interview calls: Resume/CV

I believe, you overcome the above two problems, which I mentioned before. I also consider, you implemented those solutions correctly.

So now you are thinking If I applied those solutions exactly same as you describe,  then why am I not getting any call?

‘Yes’ you are right, you definitely should have called for the interview.

But, if I say maybe your resume is not up to the mark in front of the company HR. As a result, the recruiter did not consider your curriculum vitae.

In this case, Job Portals did its job very well and it shows your profile on top of the search results.

That means the problem is in your CV and you have to improve your CV quality if you want to get shortlisted. These 5 tips help to get your resume shortlisted


Resume plays an essential role to get interview calls. If your resume did not pass the test then, how will you get the interview call?

Always remember, your resume face the first round of interview. So make sure your resume looks attractive to the HR.

If you have applied those 5 tips in your curriculum vitae. It will give your CV an extra edge over other applicants curriculum vitae.

The job Portals work is to show your profile to the recruiters, after that its role is over. From now onwards its completely depend on the recruiters, whether he/she select your CV or not.

If your Resume details look very informative and attractive then definitely recruiter call you for the interview.

Note: Don’t upload your CV/Resume in PDF Format, because sometimes HR does not have Acrobat Reader to read your Resume, So they simply skip your resume. always try to upload your curriculum vitae in the word format.
