One of the most important aspects of successful job hunting is to have an authentic and reliable contact base of placement agencies that is relevant and useful.
96 percent of vacancies in the job market are not advertised. They are serviced through Placement Consultants. Consultants don’t advertise a vacancy if they have candidates available in their existing database.
As a job seeker you must be aware that unless you reach the Placement Consultants who are handling the kind of jobs you are targeting, the whole exercise of applying through them becomes a waste of time.
You need to contact suitable placement firms and get into their database so when they are looking for a suitable candidate with your profile, your resume is available.
Suitable placement consultants are those who are dealing with the type of jobs and companies that you are trying to target and are also are handling your preferences for postings in specific cities in India or Overseas.
Placement Consultants are valuable for jobseekers also because it is their job to find you a job. They provide valuable feedback on you weaknesses, your resume shortcomings and what to do to succeed in an interview with their client. Because if you get a job with their client they win as well.
This is why it is so important to have a comprehensive database of placement firms which specialize in different fields. This is exactly what the Jobnet’s Directory of Placement Firms does. It provides information on various specialised Placement Consultants in India and Overseas. It is provides an updated list of placement consultants in 52 cities in India & 26 countries with contact details & specializations in print as well as an online version.
The Jobnet’s Job Directory has been a trusted name amongst Jobseekers for 12 years. There are many reasons for this.
1) Job Hunting At Your Convenience.
You can go online anytime and have instant access to information that is updated regularly. The Jobnet’s Directory allows you to use it anytime to call or send emails to placement consultants. You can even download the Jobnet Directory on your computer. You can opt for either an online version or for a print edition with free online access.
Many Jobseekers have problems relating to jobhunting because they are at locations with no internet access. You may be blocked or have limited access to the internet at your office location. Or you may have privacy problems because you cannot jobhunt while sitting around other people who can see what you are doing.
The printed version of the Directory solves this problem and can be delivered to your house confidentially.
2) Find Placement Firms with their Industry / Job specializations
The Jobnet Directory gives with each Placement Firm information on what type of jobs, categories and industries they are servicing.
You should be contacting only the agencies who handle the type of companies you are looking out for or by the job function relevant to you. There is a provision for an online search and selection by specialization or industry which you can choose and you will get a list accordingly.
3) Find Placement Firms with their geographic specializations / the cities / countries they are handling
If you are looking for a job in a particular city, region or country then it is important to know the geographic specialization of a consultant. Some placement companies handle recruitment across India or some may be handling only a city or state.
Some may be doing recruitments worldwide while some may handle only a specific country or many countries. The directory mentions this specifically with each placement firm.
You can choose what suits you best in relation to your preference of the regions / cities / countries where you would like to work and only choose those consultants that handle your location preferences.
4) Placement Firms with “Terms of Service” for Jobseekers
Every Jobseeker needs to know if the services that a placement firm offers them is free or has charges involved so that they can exercise a choice.
The majority of placement firms offer free services for jobseekers. There are many who also have various charges and registration fees. With each Placement Firm in the Directory this is mentioned, so the jobseeker has a option to choose or reject a placement firm.
5) Placement Firms with their contact details
The Jobnet’s Directory gives addresses, telephone numbers, emails, websites etc to enable you to contact Placement Agencies directly.
These are updated details but there are times when a contact detail may change, so to counteract this problem, multiple contact details are given so that somehow or the other the jobseeker is able to reach and contact agencies. You can also contact us directly for updated information that you seek.
Updations for the directory are dynamic and ongoing. Anytime you access the Jobnet’s Directory online you will always get the latest updates on contact details.
