The National Institute for Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development (NIESBUD) Naukri portal is the first initiative taken for the benefits of skilled job seekers with the help of dedicated web portal.

The National Institute for Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development (NIESBUD has launched its Naukri portal recently. The NIESBUD Naukri portal ( is a dedicated web portal designed for the unemployed skilled persons. This is the first initiative taken for the benefits of skilled jobseekers who are not yet covered under conventional placement system.  It is a common platform for Prospective Employer and Employees. 

The web portal would facilitate easy registration for all the prospective employees with their detailed background.  The prospective employer would find it easy to search their requirement on the web portal.  It is expected that all the persons so far trained by different organisations of Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise and who are still looking for job, would at least register on the website.

The National Institute for Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development (NIESBUD) is an apex training Institute under the aegis of Ministry of Micro Small and Medium Enterprise and is engaged in providing training, consultancy, and other support system for promotion of entrepreneurship and employability.  It has so far trained more than 2,70,000 persons which includes more than 2,600 foreign participants hailing from  25 countries of the world.  During the last three years, NIESBUD has enhanced its capacity to train more than 1,00,000 persons per year and the same is expected to increase further.  

A need was felt to provide common platform to our trained persons, so that they could find job at least in the sector where they are available.

According to NIESBUD, the portal would benefit both the employees in many ways. The employee has the opportunity to update their Profile on niesbud naukri portal without any charge which can be edited as per their convenience. They can apply in multiple companies at one time as this portal has pool of employers from various fields. Moreover, through the website employees can improve their skill, if they require.

The portal will also help employers as they can get skilled persons from different sectors and fields. The portal has gives an option to employers to indicate their preferences of skill which they require for their enterprises. NIESBUD can help the employer through this portal for accessing job seekers in different   geographical locations as per their need or requirement. In fact, employers can hire trained and young persons belonging to the rural areas.

Apart from the launch of the portal, the Rojgar Mela is being organised by NIESBUD presently which will start catering to the pool of job seekers. NIESBUD can now keep a tab on activities of employers and employees critically. It can also evaluate the market trend and thus devise suitable courses.
