hi,

I am interested in migrating to US for better job prospects. Is it advisable to come through a consultancy to US and fetch job ? What are the pros and cons ?
My friend told he knows a consultant who will process for H1B, we need to work for him for about an year and then we are on our own. I suppose the job market for a techie in US is good.

Thanks for all your inputs !!

My 2cents, don't come to USA through a body shop.
They will suck the blood out of you.

Try coming on-site through the proper channel (Infosys, CTS etc) and then try for H1 transfer.
Better still, consider higher education in the USA if you are serious about a long term career within the USA.

you will have to go there through consultant only
company do file H1B but many a times they never send.
if you have the guts to go there .just go there if you believe in yourself.
else you could possibly do fence sitting or wait and watch policy all your life.

Thank you Amit,Rohit !!

Is it worth doing an SAP course like Enterprise Portal or SAP XI compared to higher studies in US ? I was thinking good knowledge on a particular technology will fetch a good job in the US.

Best Regards

As far as my understanding goes doing higher studies in US means a sure shot entry into the US. Once you are THERE then you can plan and do a lot of things. The emphasis in higher education is on being THERE. Often higher education is termed as your "VISA" to that country .

if you have the guts to go there .just go there if you believe in yourself.
else you could possibly do fence sitting or wait and watch policy all your life.


Although it may sound inspirational but more often than not this is a recipie for the perfect chaos. I have heard numerous stories that dont really support this move! There can be good opportunities but you never know which one is genuine one. You could be in a real fix if you end up there without much clue of what is happening!

Ofourse, these are my personal opinions!

Thanks!

hey
never go to US through consultant try through any indian companies .if your saraly is more than 8 lac and married better to stay in india if you are not married and if your salary is less than 8 lac then you better go to onsite through company not through consultant.
best of luck

Thank you Sanju, Rohit .

You guys have given me good view of what to expect. Every other day I hear that some guy is going through a consultant who will process him for H1B. Was curious if I too can try.

Best Regards
Ayub

It is true that higher education is a good and in fact, most common means to enter USA for Asians.
Having said that, if pursued diligently and sincerely from a top 50 American univerisity, it can be one of the best experiences. It will also open doors to you for on-campus recruitment by a lot of large companies. Again, nothing is guaranteed, you gotta take some risk!
All the best,
Amit
