I am an international student in USA....about to graduate in December. TO get a job during my one year of internship that starts in Jan 2010, I took up J2EE training through a consultancy. My goal is to land a job by the end of Jan 2010 but my consultant just told me that it is very likely that I will get one because of the following reasons...
1) No body hires during christmas season
2) Department usually has no funds to hire
3) By the time dept gets more funds, it is around Feb or March of next year. (i.e almost in the end of the 1st quarter)
I am new to this country and as such I do not know whether this the general trend that US companies tend to follow..
The consultant's words are really affecting my confidence of getting a job by January.
Is he right about the hiring period?
I hope this is not the case.....
