That is nowhere close to the required time to do anything. It takes 2 weeks just to get your CV across from the agent and get the first interview scheduledsachindew wrote: Yes, i had been to UK for 2 weeks to search the job.
Did you actually pay for the service? Seriously, it really hasnt improved your chances so farsachindew wrote: I had my CV done from one of the agencies.
That's really not a good thing to do and irritates agents.sachindew wrote: Right now i have a Local UK number diverted to my mobile phone in India.
Why will they get back to you?. Agents go through your CV, think they have found someone local in the UK (thanks to your giving a local number and address) and then call to find out its all a lie. Even if they think you are really good, you put them off by stating things incorrectly and they wil never bother coming back to you eversachindew wrote: Also I had mentioned the local UK address. It generally happens like i get a intial call they understand the situation and never get the call after that.
You will not get a job this way. The previous poster has given really good advice. Not being here in person really lowers your chances which should be obvious and will take 10 times longer than usual. Your only bet is if there is some urgent need for your specific skillset and someone out there does not care where you are based will call you and get things sorted. They may check your CV, then check with the employer and call you. Only then you will know its a genuine chance to get something. Until then, agents are only calling you coz they think you are in the UKsachindew wrote: This is been very furstating now for me. I am loosing hope of getting there a job.
I disagree. Recruiters won't consider you unless you are in the UK. However there is no point of using the UK number if you are not going to be able to get to the UK pretty readily if interviews are going to be set up.mulderpf wrote:Why are you trying to trick people into phoning you with a UK number? Rather be upfront about your situation. My CV had only my international number on and the location where I wanted to be in the UK with an explanation of exactly when I would arrive and I managed to set up interviews like that. No lying or diversions or fake addresses necessary.
