Hi All,

I read some of the previous threads and it was good to see, so many of you discussing and advicing everyone. I need some help too.

I have 2 years experience in Java-j2ee from India. Later I came to US. I am on bench for 5 months. Since legally I am out-of-status, I am returning back to India - Mumbai.

Now my concern is
1> Will I get a good job in India, Mumbai? - particularly since i was on bench in US. Howvere my experience in India was fairly good.

2> How much CTC/ salary should i expect for my experience in Mumbai?

3> How is the market in India now - do recruiters conduct apptitude/analytical test for 2+ years experience.

4> I will be honest with my next recruiter about bench-period in US, but should I mention my US recruiter name in Resume(though that cant be considered as Professional experience)

5> Also any advice how should i prepare for interviews and start my job-search? Bit tensed because though i have 2 years experience in Java J2ee...the company i was working for in India used some tool - to create html pages, servlets, ejb - objects, deployment n all...so to be frank....tool did major thing - though I know conceptually what is done behind the screen, i am terrified by the only fact tht i doing somethg from scratch is different from doing the same with help of some tool.

Any help appreciated.

You can find a good job if good in subject matter . you can expect ctc of 4-5 lakh PA . Tests depends on the the job offered .

What do you mean by other job? I was working as Consultant/Contract-basis.

I was getting offers for permanent jobs in US. But that requires H1-transfer. I didnt had pay-slips, so transfer is out of question. Hard Luck

And new companies will think twice - and may be prefer candidates with H1 transfer instead of filing new H1.

Neways this will be my last post from US. Will mail next time from my home country - India. Hope will get to work soon.

I agree market is up in India, but there is lot of competition too...every walkin has so many applications from 1000'a of candidates..its tough..

Any suggestions of how should i start my job search in India? Or wait for walkins and post resume on companies website(have started doing this option, but havent heard from any body yet).

Good day.
