Hi all,
I have been working with Kanbay since 18 months, and have a pay packet of 4lakhs pa.
I completed SCJP,SCWCD and also an insurance domain certification(INS21).
I am looking for a job switch,and would like to try for an onsite job(not necessarily the US).
I want to know which is the best way to approach this..?
Go thr' consultants that help us in placing a job overseas or join a company here that provides onsite opp's?
If the second option is better, what are the ones here that are giving good onsite opp's..? I heard about TCS, does it ..?
Or do u ppl think its too early for me ..? The reason I feel I have a chance is that one of my batchmate got an offer in Amdox,cyprus and he told he can save upto 1lac per month there. That is not a bad deal, if u cannot get a richer chance like in the US..

Or do u think its better for me to wait for some more time(I want to grab anygood thing like the above offer also ;-) ) ..?

And yeah, Ive started enquiring about Amdox also... I need inputs from u guys..

Thanks a looot...

---> My total experience is 18months
---> I have not visited onsite..
---> I have not got any visa stamped..


But 3 certifications SCJP,SCWCD(85%),INS21(Excellent grade by Insurance certification by the Insurance Institue of America)and a looot of hands-on project experience adds weght to my resume'.
makes me
I am looking for suggestions from u ppl..

And Ramesh, ur right, even I feel the name "hrconsulatncy" doesnt match the context here.. ppl here are guiding and suggesting others here.. This name looks as if someone is doing online consulting :-)

Drinking cofee while learning Java is a good practice.

What he meant to say is that display names must be two words: your first name, a space, then your last name. Fictitious names are not allowed.

Can you please change your display name to comply with the naming rules?

thanks,
David.

Why are people so hell bent on going for an onsite opportunity. I understand that they provide good exposure, but what is also important is to grow vertically, which does not happen if you are away from your base location for an extended period. My suggestion is if you want to stay abroad then find a job there only rather than going through an India based company.

If you go through Indian companies, you won't be able to save 1 lakh per month(if you are living comfortably), but you will save considerable amount if you are bachelor and sharing everything.
however, don't go to onsite just for money. There are many other advantages of going to onsite - exposure to different culture, outside world, more client facing responsibilities etc. Look for job content and overall exposure.

Why don't you try with your current employer first ? Let them know your wishes and wait for some time for them to arrange something for you.. I think, that will be best way for you to go ahead.

Thanks Amitabh for ur views..

Yes, As u told, it would be best if I can get an onsite opp. from my curretn company,but the chances are very,very bleak,even if I wait for one more year,Im not sure..The problem is that there are too many seniors and lateral entries aspiring for onsite opps here and even if my boss promises me, it'll be just to keep me quite for a while..
I know that I am technically good,and hence can switch to a which will promise me an onsite opp.And as u said, even if I save 1lakh, that is OK as I still ama a bachelor..

Tell me, which compnaies currently are suited for me to try..? One of my friend is suggesting body shopping,but I feel its too risky for me..
If not,how can I try to foreign companies from here itself..? How about Amdocs..?


Thanks Amitabh again..
Kishore.

You can try CTS. A better bet for onsite chances and a decent pay at onsite as well..one of my friend is a living proof to this...

Also, as another poster pointed very rightly, if you stay at onsite for more than 2 years, you will be forgotten at offshore and your promotions / recognition / growth will take a severe beating...agreed you earn some dollars, but the former aspects hold more weight....Onsite chances are insidious to your career...

For the above point, I am a living proof...

Bottom line is, if you want to go abroad dont look for India based MNCs, rather take only the indian companies into account....

Thanks again,
