Do not feel depressed; the situation is the same for almost everybody.
Also, the economic scenario does not look very promising either; at this point of time.
Another issue; it is difficult for a person (HR) in a Recruitment firm to get a call from Industries.
The general perception is that they are only exposed to certain aspects of Recruitment function only !!!
The best way is to look for Openings in Recruitment or Resourcing in other established companies.
Once you gain entry; you can learn and move towards other aspects/functions of the HR deptt. within a few years, as you grow.
Please do not look for instant or ready solutions. You will have to work your way to be able to take responsibility of the general and Business HR functions.
