How can I update my resume on Zigsaw?


I have applied for a Job at Zigsaw. Where can I check the status of my application?
  • After logging in Zigsaw, kindly goto View Application Status page ( On this page your Application Status
  • Incase your Job-application is approved & your profile shortlisted, you can expect to hear back from the Employer OR the recruiter at Zigsaw shortly
  • Incase your Job-application is rejected, we try to provide reason of rejection of your Job-application in most cases. Most commo causes of rejection of Job-application are as below
    • Lack of relevant Skills/Experience: This is a typical reason when Your profile does not meet the educational OR experience qualifications required for this Job
    • The most prominent case of rejection happens because Job-seekers apply randomly on Jobs and without a clear understanding of the skills & experience required for any Job. Applying to random Jobs that do not match your skills reduces your credibility as a Job-seeker
    • Salary Expectations: Job market has grown very competitive in the last 3-4 years and sometimes unreasonable salary expectation wrt required skills/experience can cause your application to be rejected
    • Lack of sincerity: A lot of times Job-seekers do not show up for the interview or back out in the middle of the recruitment process. Sometimes applications can be rejected if the Recruiter thinks you are not sincere enough for the role.
    • The employer is not comfortable with Your earliest Join
    • The Recruiter did not find your answer to “Why do you think you are a good fit for this role” impressive
    • Interaction with the candidate: Sometimes although you check all points on a Recruiter checklist, the Recruiter does not find you suitable after an interaction with you.

We, at Zigsaw recommend you to apply more judiciously to the Jobs that are relevant to you & answer sincerely to the questions asked while applying for Jobs

I have applied for a couple of Jobs at but haven’t received any call from Zigsaw. I am not sure what might be causing it. Can you help? Whenever you apply for any Job, we usually take action on your Job-application within 48 hours of your application. The action would be informed to you via an email/SMS and can be viewed under the Application status tab at We only sometimes give a personal call/WhatsApp to shortlisted Job-seekers corresponding to their Job-application
What happens when my Job-application was shortlisted by Zigsaw but I haven’t heard from the employer? When we shortlist any application, it is forwarded to the official email address of the HR. If HR finds your application relevant, he/she would get in touch with you soon. However, if you haven’t from the HR/employer in 7-10 days, it usually means one of the below case

  • The HR was not impressed with the answers to the screening question provided by you.
  • The HR estimates that you are under qualified as per their expectations
  • The HR estimates that you are overqualified for the Job (might negatively impact stability)
  • The HR estimates that your salary expectations do not match their expectations from your skills/experience.
  • They have already hired someone else or are in final talks with someone.
  • The position was filled internally.
  • The position went on Hold
