Hi all,

i got laid off and am searching a full-time Software Engineer role. Everyday, I signed in Linkedin and applied multiple jobs in there.
I also use Hired and Vettery to post my resume. After a month, I realized I just have a few emails from those websites. Then last week, I posted my resume in Dice, Career Builders, and Indeed and put a note โ€œ ONLY interested in FULL-TIME Software Engineer position in Bay Area, CAโ€. Omg! on the first day, I got 50 calls and more than 50 emails sent from recruiters from job agencies for contract jobs like 6 months to 12 months outside of California and a few jobs in Bay Area, CA.

I really want to look for a fulltime job in Bay Area, CA( like Palo Alto, Sunnyvale, Mountain View, ...). i would like to ask all of you what is the best website I can post my resume to look for full time jobs and get directly calls from hiring recruiters instead of from agency companies.

Thank you all!

  • I have a list of companies I'd consider, which is small enough that I just connect with each company individually via recruiters I've connected with on LinkedIn. imo LinkedIn is sufficient, anything more is excessive.

      @AqiR34 - Did you pay for Premium account

    • New AqiR34
      Yes. Most premium Accts on LinkedIn are either job seekers or head hunters. Ppl cancel premium after they get an offer.

    Hi, Job hunter ๐Ÿ˜€

    The best way to get the attention of corporate recruiters is uploading your resume to your LinkedIn profile and updating your status to "Open to New Opportunities." You're then able to elaborate as to what you consider a relevant opportunity: Desired Job Title(s), Location(s), Contract/FT, etc.

    I recommend NOT posting and praying or apply and spraying. Instead, email (NOT InMail) recruiters directly. While on the recruiter's LinkedIn profile, you can use freemium Chrome extension tools like Clearbit Connect, Hiretual, Hunter, FTL, Snovio, etc. to find their corporate email address.

    OR, I'd be happy to connect you with colleagues at any companies you may be interested in. If you're open to Walmart eCommerce, I'd be happy to chat about opportunities here, as well ๐Ÿค“

    Best of luck!

    LinkedIn, Indeed are the top for tech full time jobs. If you're applying to jobs every day, then there's a good chance your resume simply isn't passing their ATS resume screenings.

    It's really important to optimize your keywords to the skills that any particular job you're applying to is looking for (that you have, of course). You can tell what skills they're looking for by looking at their job description, although it's slow it works.

    There are also tools out there that can help you scan the keywords from job postings, like this:

    Try simplyHire along with LinkedIn, it is not a fancy website but it is legit, setup alerts on your job role and apply ASAP. It worked for me 2 times and both of them are full time. I would stay away from posting my resume in any of job portals instead I would apply on the companies website if a role interests me in the any of job portals.

    Also brace yourself to receive a ton of Robo calls - including the one which says โ€œFBI agent will be in your front door in 10 mins because you were involved in a money launderingโ€ it happened to me ๐Ÿ˜Š

      After 2 days of receiving so many calls from 6am to 8 pm and spending time to clean up emails, I disable option - let recruiters know your resume
