Hi Madhu,

Usually Companies prefer to hire the sensitive positions through references as they feel that the resources through references are more reliable that hunting from the market..............so usually thoese positions are filled either with reference or internal role transfer by doing this they can control attrition and enhance job satisfaction..........!!!

Also you need potray your work experience in your resume in such a way that it should get noticed........... if you have good experience then dont worry you will definitely get a call ...........!!!

take care
