UI Code

    static DataTable dt;
    ResponseDetail_select responseobj = new ResponseDetail_select(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["portal"].ConnectionString);
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (!IsPostBack)
            dt = responseobj.get_response_job(cmp_id);
            GridView1.DataSource = dt;

public DataTable get_response_job(int cmp_id)
  return (dl.GetDataTable("select job_id,job_title from Recruiter_JobPost where company_id='" + cmp_id + "'"));

If you bind DataTable (dt) to your GridView, you can use Rows.Count property for dt.

Label1.Text = "Rows count: " + dt.Rows.Count.ToString();

That is way better than my solution. How could I have forgot about that property when I use it all the time.

I would try something like this:
int i = 0;

foreach(DataRow dr in dt.Rows)

It is just a simple way to count the rows that will be filling your GridView.
