Whoa… Call them up and ask how did they get your resume and what gave them the idea they could submit you.

Definitely ask the firm recruiter for they contact from Parker Lynch so you can reach out to them. Reach out to them via email (so you have it in writing) asking for the approval to submit they have on your behalf because you did not give authority. Your interviewing firm will appreciate this because they could have a potential law suit on their hands if they hire you from one of the search firms and easier if you work it out for them.

Hi all.

I have cleared CTS interview & received offer letter. In my first company, i was trainee and not eligible for pf & form 16

In bgv, if there is no pf & form 16, i need to submit HR confirmation mail.

I have contacted that company HR, he told that organisation has restrictions to send mail to outside, so he can't send mail confirmation, but he was ready to give any confirmation via call.

I mentioned the same in CTS bgv oneCognizant , but they are rejecting.

kindly provide your idea.

I’m a first year lateraling to another firm. I got offered a full year end bonus as the signing bonus. Since the market is hot, I was wondering if I can get a separate signing bonus but the recruiter says that no first years get a separate signing bonus and asking for more would be risky. Is this true?
