Hi All,
I'm a java/j2ee developer(SCJP 5.0) having 3+ yrs of experience, currently working for an MNC. I hold a certification in Retail Banking and worked on Manufacturing domain.I know basic german and french as well.

I recently got a call from a consultancy to work in spain, but they are charging INR 300,000 to send a person to spain as a security money.Should I consider their offer?

Also,I would like to know if there is any opportunity in any other european countries like France, NL, Germany, UK, etc.
Can you guys please advice if it would be better if I'll try to get a certification in any european language?

Many thanks

I'm not sure what kind of language certification you have in mind, but in countries where English is not the native language you need to have good skills of that country's language to get a job. The NL -where English is widely spoken- may be an exception, but in France and Germany "basic" skills won't cut it.

Also be aware that in a downturn like the present, many companies won't consider potential employees that require support for their visa. So if you aren't legally allowed to work in these countries already, it's going to be very tough.

From the moment one "company" asks you to pay for working, instead of being paid for it, you ought to ignore it for decency's sake. They are crooks, period.

Also,I would like to know if there is any opportunity in any other european countries like France, NL, Germany, UK, etc.

It is completely useless to have any hope about Europe, Europe will be stricken by present crisis as hard as any other country or even harder, and will take longer to recover than countries like US. Simply stay where you are. It would be silly considering working abroad now as most if not all of the alien workers will have to get back home anyway in 2009 for lack of local work which will make their work useless, so stay in the environment you know the best and don't move, it will be the same or worse abroad anyway.

Best regards.

I agree with Eric. The moment a "company" asks you to pay money blindly ignore them. Its not worth and more over they may cause you trouble as you paid them money.

A job is something that pays you and not the opposite.

3 lakhs was a decent year's income not that long ago. This sounds like the kind of fee that someone who stuffs illegal immigrants in the back of an unventilated lorry and smuggles them in would charge.

It's true that headhunters in the USA typically collect about 30% of one's first-year salary for placement, but they get that from the employer, not the employee, and the actual cost for a new hire is closer to 3x once office furnishings, equipment, health care and other benefits etc. are factored in, so the bite isn't as bad for them.
