Hi Sonali, Hope you are doing well? Thanks in advance for the help and guidance. I am a marketing/communications professional with an experience of 15 yrs-worked with Media, Banking, BPO. I am un-employed right now and I have been looking for job from past 6 months. Applied to numerous organisations through Linkedin, portals, reaching out to job posters and HOD's directly. But, there's no response. I am still waiting for an interview call. And I am sure, if I get one-I'll nail it. Asked people in the industry - acc to them my CV is good. But, there are shortcomings too - there are job hoppings, gaps and I have also worked as an entrepreneur/freelancer. Can you guide, where I am stuck? Regards, Leena

The good part is you already know the probable speed-breakers in your path. I would still say, that you be patient, keep hunting, look for opportunities (while you are looking for jobs) - I mean look for projects and freelancing. If you are comfortable with teaching, take a few sessions - there are enough media colleges around. Use this time to work on your own profile ( a presentation), be active on job /professional networking sites and engage in active and effective networking even offline. People are posting jobs and openings even on their social pages - keep looking for them, connect with them. Keep checking www.sheroes.in/jobs every two days.
IT companies - even when they are looking for media professionals, consider full time experience as experience. Nonetheless, I am sure that there is a job that is out there waiting for you. Do ensure that you are fully geared (with reskilling) and other suggestions as above to take on the job opportunities that are currently not so obvious to you.
All the best!
