Hi everyone,
I have been thinking a lot about finding a job without going through any consultancy. I get two kinds of suggestions:
1) Try to find an internship, use LinkedIn and other websites. I have only 4 months of internship experience in IT.
2) Go through a consultancy. And you know how consultancies work. I don't feel comfortable adding many years of experiences.

Please advise me what would be the best thing to do or what would you do in this case ( I don't have a green card)?

in my case i did both.. went to a consultancy and kept applying on side.. Got job and left the consultancy by giving them some bullshit reason.. i had 0 yrs of experience and no GC at that time. i got lucky... i'd definitely suggest doing both since you don't have a GC and time is of essence...

@advice_7 i used a lot of different websites.. mostly indeed.com though. I used my own real resume with 0 experience for the ones i was applying and let consultancy do its thing. When i got interview date, i was legit confused about which resume i applied with.. in fact i asked the HR to send me resume since just to be sure and told them i had been working on the updating my resume and wanted to make sure they got the right one.. :D

For a time being what you can even do it buy one phone app that provides you a different number.. use that for your own resume with 0 experience.. when someone calls that number you would know that its a call for your legit ones.. if you get a call on regular number.. you know who it is..

Why not keep an Excel spreadsheet record to be more organized. For example see below:

thanks guitarcenter , but do you know any app? How much do they cost? I haven't heard of that before. And what do you mean by "if you get a call on regular number.. you know who it is"?

archer, I have been trying with my few months of internship experience but no luck. Did you get a job through indeed? wouldn't that be suspicious to ask to send your own resume? I thought about that too

ujl thanks for the effort. It could come handy. I am thinking about how to make my real resume appealing to find a job by myself.

Sideline, Line2, Hushed are some. They are like I believe 4.99 or 5.99 per month. So when you get the call in their number, it will come in app itself. Advantage: they are cheap. Drawbacks mayyyyy be not forward able, no merging, and if u decide to cancel the service due to inconvenience due to its drawbacks, then you might have to update the number in your resume. The number is gone.

Not a response to primary question of the thread. This is about handling calls: I provided google voice numbers (with my name recorded for the voicemail greeting) and programmed calls to go directly to voicemail. I called them back after enough research about the caller.

"_" that was very interesting. Why did you do that because you marketed resumes through a consultancy and by yourself?

I don't recommend you applying for jobs from indeed or ZipRecruiter. I think they sell your PII to third party companies and you will end up getting a bunch of spam calls for an uncertain period of time. Use Indeed to find open positions and then go to that company website to apply for that job.

Some thoughts.

1.Get certified any Ccna,Ms,VM
2.tailor resume based on JD
3.Keep looking but also join consultancy,atleast u ll learn some things n meet people and understand what's out there
4.it is perfectly fine to go consultancy,since u know what u getting into ,still applying on the side
5 if no options other then consultancy,After one or two project, market urself
Good luck
