hi all

i wanted information as well advice regarding job in USA
through a consultant in US .
If i apply through a consultancy which will
help me in placement in any company in US
that is according to my ability.
I am Software Enggineer in Computer Science
SCJP 5.0 and a 1 year experience working as
a java developer in company ,preparing ahead with
SCWCD.

Can i expect to get a job in US through
any consultancies there?Obviously i understand clearing interviews
there is my part.
But just according to my skills
mentiond above are there any chances
that i can get a job or requirements in US
are to high to be applied now.

Hi,

I think 1yr experience is little less to come here in US.
I would suggest to work for some more time in India to get good exposure and then come in US.

Hi dhwani,

I also think 1+ is little lesser. Perhaps around 3 years would be a considerable experience to get a job in US. I am not talking about going to US on an onsite assignment, but it is for getting a job. Generally people get their H1B visa filed through a consultant for which min of 3 yrs would be appropriate.

Still, there are no issues in trying out. You may try and you may get it! . Couple of my friends who have got their job in US through consultancies. If you are badly willing to go to US, you may definitely go ahead!

Good luck

As others have said, one year experience is less for the US market. Generally the consulting positions require much more experience then this.

You might get your H1-B approved and you might as well find a client. But be prepared to live at a salary of 45-50K and for things like short assignments, tweaking your CV etc. etc.

Ultimately you will be on the mercy of the body shopper as I donot think you will be able to find a perm position with this experience.

These are just my perception of things and I might be wrong here. May be others can shed more light on this.

Go for it and while waiting build/brush up your skills/knowledge. In my view the number of years of experience is subjective. Some have real 4 year experienece and others may have one year repeated 4 times. Make sure that you learn, understand and experience the sought after technologies/frmaeworks related to Java. Where there is a will, there is a way........ Good luck.
