I'm assuming you applied to a job post online and you got a call from a recruiter who is telling you all this.
You have to understand what a recruiter job is.Their job is to post jobs for their clients and gather resumes and give them to the client for review. It is up to the client on which person they want, but if they select someone through the recruiter, they get a cut of their total pay.
So reality is your "recruiter" isn't working for you. They want you to polish up your resume, ask for your schedule, then they submit the resume along with others. They're basically working for the client, not for you. In nearly 99% of cases where I applied to a recruiter's post, I don't actually apply to the company they advertise instead I get the exact phone calls as you do, then nothing ever happens. I never apply to a recruiter post and sometimes I accidentally do and I simply hang up and move along. I consider these type of posts as spam. I know I got "tricked" when I get a phone call 5 minutes after "applying."
My advice is to stop going to this recruiter and instead either apply directly with companies or continue to apply hoping to get someone.
