  • What is the difference between OpenMentor Resume and Other Job Portals?

    In all job portals evaluation of the candidate is not done before accepting the resume to that portal. In Reality, if an employer search for a candidate in other job portal out of 100 they might get around 1 to 4 people who has potential to attend the interviews.

    In OpenMentor, OpenMentor teams thoroughly examine the resume posted, evaluates the candidate for the correctness of the content with appropriate test and publishes the result along with OpenMentor comments. Employer has an option to view such comments and take appropriate decision. This reduces lot of time for the employer in screening the candidates credibility.

  • OpenMentor model for Job Seekers
