Not very surprisingly, but very unhelpfully, most sites make it extremely hard for you to unsubscribe or opt-out of their mailing lists. I had an old email account listed on Naukri and I occasionally get stupid notifications that “Your CV has been short-listed”… Ridiculous, if you consider that I have not even completed the profile properly.
So anyway, I tried looking at the email itself to see if there was a link that would let me opt out Naukri’s mailing list right away, but no no – not a chance. So, whats the way out? The email helpfully said at the end:
“If you consider the content of this email inappropriate or spam, you may:
1. Report abuse by forwarding this email to : firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Block this company – IndiaMART InterMESH Ltd (ref no: 18735) from accessing your resume by logging into your naukri account and selecting Block Company in the Privacy Settings section“
Well, neither of those links used any special codes to recognize my account, so I *had* to login in order to opt out…
So, I logged in, and then looked around for a way out.
Nothing. Not even a way to disable my profile (or deactivate it).
Finally had to write an email to Customer Help (location of online form is on top-right corner).
Lets see if its effective.
