Hi VAMSING KRIS ,

You have posted the same thing twice. If you need to change anything in your earlier post, pls use edit option, instead of starting a new thread.

Also request you to delete 1 post between the 2.

TAI,

Grishma

Double Post

This is absolutely illegal.

Before an alien gets approved for H-1B, his employer must file the Labor Condition Application which includes the wage for the H-1B worker. The employer must continuously pay for the minimum number of hours specified in the petition.

Hi Good to c some response from u guys. i GOT H1b Through One Consulting Company. They Sponsored for me. They informed me that once I land there they will show their clients I need to face interview. I need your suggestions abt the period (when can I start ), I heard that during year end there wont be more openings in USA due to Christmas & New Year Holidays . I need to search job once I land there. I have got 6 Years of IT Experience and I have couple of Java certifications in my hand (SCBCD,SCJP etc).
I need your valuable suggestions

Thanks & Regards

I don't know about the legalities regarding H1B .. but its true that the job market is slow in november - december because of the holiday season and vacations.. It may be a good idea to start your hunt in January because its the start of a new quarter and funds gets alloacated at the start of a quarter. I am not saying that its not possible to find a job in nov - dec. But I have observed that job market is sluggish at the end of the year.

All the best.

Unless you are working and wondering when to quit, you might as well start looking today. There will be some places that will hire in December.

You will need to apply for SSN as soon as you get in the US at the SSA office near your place. Here is the info: http://www.ssa.gov/ssnumber/

Explain how long will it take to get SSN, and when exactly we need to apply for SSN


Here is the link you need for your questions.
http://www.ssa.gov/pubs/10002.html

Until you get a SSN, just write "applied for" in that space on any form asking for it. Some companies won't let you start work as a W2 employee until you have a SSN. This shouldn't affect contract work as a 1099 employee, but that's up to each employer.

Translations:
u = you
abt = about
pls = please
TAI = no idea, typo?
c = see
wont = won't
ur = you're, you are, and your
wud = would

Please don't be lazy, we have many visitors from around the world and not everyone has English as their first language. When you add contractions (like those above) to poor grammar and spelling mistakes it can make your posts unreadable to some people.

Please strive for easier understanding of posts, "we don't charge by the letter"

Thanks,
Dave

I agree 100%, the use of SMS slang and other abbreviations may seem cool to the sender, but it simply confuses the receiver. TIA means Thanks In Advance, but I'd still write it out, even though I know the jargon, TAI sounds like the chinese word for Great?

As long as we're talking language usage, could people please stop using "doubt" in place of "question"?

As for Vamsing, I would like to say that when asking for help, starting ur message with
"Hi Dudes"
may not be a good idea.
As for ur SSN, stop worrying abt it. When u arrive in the US, ur consulting company or ur colleagues will help u file for ur SSN. It is the simplest thing on earth; fill up a form, show ur passport and submit it at the SSN office and u shud get it within a month.

I beg to disagree. It is definately something that I am glad the moderaters bother about.

As was pointed out earlier, this forum is used by a lot of people from around the world, many of them struggling with English as a second (or third, or fourth) language. The usage of such shortened words definately makes there task harder.

Unlike some other 'chat' forums, a lot of people use Java Ranch for much serious studying. How would you like it, if the next book you bought to teach yourself something was written using similar sms slang?

cheers
Sonny

Everyone is welcome to their own opinion, but I wanted to point out that we favour comprehension over contraction.

I beg to differ, moderation is a resposibility and this thread is difficult to read. I think this was worth pointing out, but you're welcome to take it up with management. I appologise but I didn't read the rest, it was too much effort. We now return you to your regular programming

Just because members on many other message boards, chat sites use this kind of language doesnt mean that this board has to follow them. The moderators on this board are well withing their rights to ask that proper English be used.

This is a technical board here. It is important that we understand each other clearly. Writing in txt, might make your typing a little easier, but it makes it much more difficult for a reader to understand what you are saying. Personally, if I see a technical question asked in txt, I dont even bother reading through the entire post

For all that this side discussion is off-topic, I'm afraid that I'm going to have tojump and and agree that while curtated English may be fine for SMS and Morse code, it's out of place here. Although we do affect our little graemlins, we're nonetheless a professional forum, not a chat room for hax0rs. Forgive my simple-mindedness, but even a simple "u" is a speed-bump to my trying to decode what someone's asking.

Everything according to its proper context. Hmmm. Doesn't J2EE throw Exceptions if you do things out of context?

thank you David for providing an official standpoint on this. I've taken to no longer answer any questions that are worded in pidgin or sms shorthand.
Maybe if enough people do so the people thinking it "l33t kewl" (or however it's spelled) to use such terminology will learn better.
