I’m now finding that my phone is getting 20+ calls a day from recruiters based in India, and getting 40+ emails a day as well from Indian-based recruiters.
At first, I was excited that I was getting “movement” in my job search and replied back to all of them.
But then it started to get just a little weird.
Some would ask me for the last FIVE digits of my social security numbers, some would have me copy-and-paste replies back to them confirming that their company would be representing me… just odd requests all by email.
Forums on Google generally advise to stay away from those types of recruiters, but I’m curious if anyone else has had any experiences with these types of overseas recruiters?
Has anyone actually landed a job from them?
