Is it just me or is it really difficult to land interviews for Indian companies? I have applied to countless jobs on LinkedIn, AngelList, Glassdoor, company carrer pages with ZERO calls. All the jobs I applied for were in my domain of expertise, some were where they didn't care about languages and frameworks (that's what the job listing said). Just to set context, i have around ~4 years total experience and worked around ~2 years of a product based company. I have made some open source contributions and actively run a couple of side projects one of which hit #1 on HN. It just makes me wonder how do people switch jobs so easily (pre and post covid)?
Recently i started connecting with recruiters of companies that i want to work for. I hope this strat helps me land atleast a couple of interviews. How do you guys land interviews? Have you guys tried messaging recruiters? Does it help?
