I applied for job.Whole day my my phone kept ringing but the job calls were such which I do not want. Is there a way to selectively apply for the kind of job you want (based on preferred location or other)and not get other useless calls. Also when I recieve call for interview in Office everyone comes to know.Is there a proper way to search for a job (and not in a way that whole day calls are coming and no useful ones are there)

You can target companies or work with a recruiter rather than just "putting your resume out there." As for the office, you shouldn't be using your work phone for this. And don't answer your cell phone at your desk.

I am from india. I know only one way that is to upload resume and then you will get calls randomly. I dont know how to approach a recruiter.I am not sure that option is common in india.Or may be are you talking about working with Consultants?

This might be a language difference. I searched "india job consultants" and the top three hits were for recruitment consultants.

A recruiter is someone who doesnt ahve jobs on their own but instead makes money by a percentage of the salary of people they place in jobs.

Thanks Jeanne. But when i go to the web sites of these job consultants they have written they provide help for companies who want to find suitable candidates.(Not the other way round).

This why it is important keep networking to secure jobs directly. Your online presence and contacts with the right people can open doors to the hidden market.

I'm hoping someone in India will pipe in as I'm just doing google searches. But http://www.hireindians.com sounds like what I'm thinking of.
