I don't know about Germany and France, but I can tell you about Poland
I have some news, that's it's picking up a little bit. Just a little bit.
Are you willing to move to Europe?
Regards,
Michael

I suspect Europe is less affected by outsourcing because of language barriers. I don�t mind learning another language; it would be more fun then doing something like MBA, or another degree. The only advantage of North America over Europe was money; since this is not the case anymore there is no reason to stay here. Poland? Yes this is the ultimate destination.

I am thinking of moving to Portugal after I finish my masters degree in December. I know I would get a job but don't know what kind or if I will like it as much as in the US.I've been following the market somewhat and generally everyone thinks next year is going to be better.

In Poland, everyone is waiting for "offset" projects right now.
I hope that our economy situation will improve soon.

Szkapa - I was thinking about moving to Toronto.... I'm not so sure any more, especially I'd be one of those hated H1-B's, or whatever they are called in Canada
Peter Pol - where exactly? I'm in NYC.
Mariusz, well, I know about one company (Polish) which doesn't count on offset. Not only it has a lot of work to do (mostly Europe, US) but also plan to hire more than 100 programmers (Java, ORACLE).
Regards,
Michael

Michael,
Any specific reason for moving from NYC to Toronto? I have seen people move from Toronto to NYC

Hmm......
It's the matter of 'quality-of-life', not professional issues.
I guess Toronto, and generally Canada is more friendly to live.
Anyway, I don't think I'll go for it in the next couple of years.
So far I am staying in NYC and hoping that economy, or at least job market will improve

the market in Germany is crap at the moment, Italy is so-so
 
Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Is this a tiny ad?
