Hi,

I have around 3.5 yrs experience as a Java developer in a Tier-1 MNC in India. Also, I am working in the same project for almost 3.3 yrs. Since the company is reducing onshore team and planning to remove the onshore team in near future, I am sure there wont be any onsite chances for me. Also they are not willning to send me out of this project. Bu I am desperately looking for an onsite opportunity.

Since, I am not getting any onsite opportunity in my current company, I am planning to quit to other company. Now, my question is that Can I ask for an Onsite Opportunity in the interview & will that work in getting me an Onsite chances...


Please suggest....

You can try requesting for an onsite opportunity during your interviews and see how it goes. However, most of the IT service companies in India require the employee to be at least 6 months old in the organization to be eligible for onshore opportunities (There will be exceptions of course!) I personally think you would be better off trying to search for an opportunity within your current organization than outside.

OTOH try to analyse why you are so keen on an onshore opportunity. Is it more money/exposure/different cultural experience/ some thing else? Or a mix of these? This is important because there might be other ways of achieving what you want, rather than travelling onshore. For instance, you will get a pay hike if you switch your company, if money is the only thing you are looking at.

HTH

All the best!

If they reduce the team at onshore then who will answer the customer?? I'm sure that the customer would expect someone to be sitting besides him in his office to answer his queries on the project.

They are trying to remove the onshore concept in the project because of the reason that the application is stable enough of getting any issues. Also, in anoher 6 months time , offshore team will be directly interacting with the client.

Why would you like an opportunity to go onsite ? Whatever the reasons can those needs be satisfied by a change in position / job ? The reason I ask is, this 'onsite opportunity' is not a factor that you control. It is best to seek one that you do.
