How can I join any of these PSU’s….I am looking out for a secured job…Currently I’m working with HCL Technologies….but I’m not satisfied with the private organisations, I don’t feel any security in that….

So I would request you to advice me to whom should I approach in getting a job in PSU…I don’t find any consultant for PSU’s…

Thanks in advance,
