Hi Mayank, I would like to keep my question anonymous. I have been working in an energy solutions-based company. It is a multinational engineering consultancy company. Our main line of business is engineering of oil and gas based refineries and related petrochemical plants. I joined this Mumbai-based company in 2015 as a trainee. I am happy with the work but my financial growth is very slow as compared to my friends working in similar companies. I haven't switched companies as on now. I am looking for a job switch both in India or abroad (Dubai/ Singapore).  I have been trying hard to find a company for a job switch but I am not getting response from anyone. I mainly try through LinkedIn and Naukri. My questions to you are: 1. Could you please advise what is the best way to find jobs abroad (because I'm tired of applying via LinkedIn). Should I take any professional help? If yes, please suggest the name of a good company you know. 2. What is the best way to switch a job in India, considering the lack of response from employers through LinkedIn or Naukri? I'll be very happy to have answers to this. Thanks and regards, Anonymous

Hi. As you work in a niche segment, your job search also needs to be focused.

Make a list of the companies where your skills are the most appropriate.  Then connect with people who work in those companies through LinkedIn. Approach them for a suitable role as all good companies have internal employee referral programmes.

Also, please understand that you should not look for a job only because of a low salary.

If your management is supportive and is willing to gradually increase your salary, then you can consider continuing here.
