  5. Dear All ,

    I like the concept of this web site. But i dont understand why does the companies have not published their email ids. Well i seriously suggest that companies should put on their email addresses so that one can contact them easily.

    thanks .


    1. If you are looking for a job placement, surely you would want to walk in or at least call to get more details before you walk in for an appointment. Besides, there is a high possibility that you won’t get much info by sending them an email. They will probably reply asking you to call them or walk in.

  6. I like this web coz it really provide a lot of info. Just read Jasmine message, want to advise find a right agency is really important. Do not engage with the agency which ask you to pay money. Try to call the agency and talk to the consultant before you engage with them. Once you feel the consultant is polite, reliable, go to visit their office as well. Hope you can find a good job soon . 🙂
