What does “Your profile is x% complete” mean? / Why should my profile be 100% complete?

It is important to have a complete profile on Naukri as it increases your chance of recruiters noticing and your profile and contacting you. For example, recruiters are 40% more likely to contact profiles with a photo than profiles without a photo. Each field in your Naukri profile has been assigned a certain % weight and completing these fields would increase your overall profile completion percentage.
