  • Help/Advice : Resume not getting picked


    I have applied for countless positions both through vendors as well as personally on dice, techfetch and indeed.For some reason, my resume just refuses to get picked...for the 300 odd applications i put since September not a single one called back for a client interview.

    I always applied to only those jobs that fit my profile and have made changes to my resumes according to the requirement to highlight points that the client is looking for and made sure the buzz words are there instead of just pushing a one size fits all resume.Inspite of taking so much care - i havent received a single call from any vendor for a client screening or interview.

    I have given on follow up with vendors too -- they just keep saying client is looking for US citizen or green card holder.

    Has this happened to anyone before ? What could be causing this ? Am i blacklisted or something? Please help since i am in deep trouble and i need a job asap....

    Thanks and Regards,

          You may want to try your luck with career fairs. I have been to the ones organized by SWE and NSBE.

            Most of the IT contracts have been taken over by Infosys, TCS & Cognizant. These vendors will never entertain candidates if they happen to be Opt or F1 to H1. Too many candidates with fake degrees from Tri valley, Four Valley & Alaska Institute of technology have exploited this loophole & made a mess at client locations. I've seen such candidates who claim to have 8 yrs exp in Java & doesn't know what's a static or final.
