This is because the companies get 100s of emails from job seekers and it's not practical for them to respond to every job applicant. Also, there are several assumptions here - the biggest one being that the companies are actually, actively looking to hire an engineer with background, experience and skills similar to yours. 

There are ways to get a job in the core field - by actively building your skills-set to match that of the companies that hire engineers. I'm making an assumption that you are a fresh engineering grad. Is there anything in your resume that'd make the recruiters actually look at your profile seriously and consider responding to you? 

I'm suggesting that you should keep an eye on the company job pages - and make sure that you've the matching skill-set. Companies often organize walk-in interviews or recruitment drives to hire engineers. You need to tap into that opportunity. 

There are unconventional ways too - you could leverage your college's alumni portal to find key contacts in the companies who'd be willing to refer you to some jobs. Then there are placement agencies who do all the prepwork for you and guide you through the jobs. 

Perhaps, your resume might need an upgrade to highlight the skills/experience that you may have in the relevant field.

When recruiters receive 100s of resumes; all they do is just look at the resume and decide whether to read it or not depending upon the first appearance of the resume. I know it's not the right way to do screening; but this actually happens. You need to figure out a way to beat the system. Maybe try building an impressive resume - if you've already acquired relevant skills and expertise. 

I hope this helps. If you have follow-up questions; post them below. I wish you all the best.

@Dinesh nath Have you tried to contact HR via LinkedIn or e-mail ? I usually look at job portal just to find SPOC HR, then contact that HR via LinkedIn. Works most of the time.

Adding one more point to the discussion, @Dinesh please try contacting working professionals through LinkedIn, for the company which you are looking for.

There are professionals over the network who can give you information what exactly the company is looking for and they can even refer you.

I, myself tried the same thing and that reference will definitely help you to attend the interview. Also there are online platforms like Indeed, Glassdoor etc., where you can build your profile strong and attract the recruiters.
