      I think consultants/recruiters like you can help job hunters to a long extent. You can help them find out their weak sides and guide them in the right direction. Thanks sofs for stopping by and for making a comment.

      Radhikasree, as a consultant/recruiter myself I can tell you that a well presented resume is a must. It creates the first impression. Preparation for the interview is a huge plus, plus. Most MNC's go to established consultants in their areas. They have an ongoing contract with most. So it would be good to scout for reputed HR consultants in the area in which a candidate looks for a job and submit resumes to them. Most of them have a website or a email contact to make life easy. Thanks for the share and have a wonderful day.
