Hello All,

I started my career with Company A (a small company) where I worked for around 2 months 10 days. Then I switched to Company B and was there for around 2 years 10 months. Then I moved to Company C where I stayed for around 8 months.

Presently I am in Company D where my B1 is getting initiated and I will be giving the interview at the beginning of Jan, 2015.

My Concern is:

Since I was in Company A for only 2.5 months and the company was shut down in 2011, shall I mention this in my Visa Form?

I showed the experience of Company A while joining Company C and it caused me a lot of problems at the time of background verification. I was not able to provide my manager's details since all of them moved out at different locations.

In such a scenario, will it be good to remove the experience of Company A in the DS 160 Form?

Please let me know on this.

Hello,

I am currently working in an Indian IT MNC for last 9 months and recently I resigned my job for seeking a better opportunity in another Indian IT MNC. I don't have a healthy relation with my current manager. For the background verification in my new organization, I provided the contact details for my current manager (which was mandatory as a part of the background verification form).

Now I am worried with what if:

1) My manager provides a poor feedback if he is called up for a verification process by my new employer?

2) In case of a poor feedback from my current manager, how shall I overcome this situation in my new organization?

Please advice, I am really worried on this.

Thanks,

Hi All,

I joined Company A 6 months back and resigned within 15 days for joining Company B. The reason I gave for resigning Company A was abroad higher studies which was totally fake. I was not able to serve the notice period, hence paid then 66k INR before the last working day and got the full and final release letter (I did not absconded). Both Company A and Company B are based MNC's, earlier one is US based and the latter one is India based.

I am not happy with the opportunities I am getting in Company B , hence planning to resign it and attend an interview in Company A again (we don't have much option in my hometown, hence opting for Company A again).

Below are some of the queries I have:

1) I did not absconded my job in Company A during my short tenure of 15 days with them, I paid them the entire fine amount before leaving the company. Will I be able to apply and join them again? The only worry I have is does Company A have any internal policies which might stop me for the re-hire since I quit within 15 days?

2) I am planning to inform them in advance during the interview itself that I was with them for 15 days in my previous tenure with Company A (I don't like to hide anything from my employer) - Is this a correct decision? Or, I should hide the same?

3) Last time the reason I gave for resigning was abroad higher studies which was totally fake. How to deal with this when the HR asks me on this? Need some solid reasons tackle this - Please suggest.

4) HR might ask that I joined Company B immediately after resigning Company A which means the reason I gave for my last resignation (i.e. abroad higher studies) was fake - How to deal with this?

Please advice, its really urgent for me.

Hi all,

I am from India. I have worked in Company A and Company B, planning to move on to Company C. Now Company C will be starting the background verification very soon. Company C asked me for the manager details and HR details (i.e. name, contact # and Company Email Id) of the previous two employers.

Below are the problems I can see, don't know how to overcome them:

1) Company A does not exists any more. I came to know this few days back. I have got all the relevant documents for my employment with Company A but I am not sure about the manager and HR details; even I don't remember their names. How to tackle this situation?

2) Company B is a well renowned MNC but I don't have good terms with my reporting manager, he is angry since I decided to put my paper. Then what to do in this case for providing the manager details?

Kindly let me know about this.

Regards.

I agree with this. If C#, then it wont be much of a hard work to get used with it except some language specific things. But if its VB, then a little more work has to be done from your end. I guess it should be C# only.

This is exactly what I think as well. The HR person asked me this and I hesitated little while replying that I am not bothered about the role. My follow up question to I asked the HR was: "Will I get a Pay Hike more than my present company"? The reply was yes and I showed my interest for their position.

Thanks for the reply.

Hi all,

Presently I am working in Company A as a Senior Engineer having exp of 3 years. In Company A the Engineer role is given to guys with less than 2 years of exp, Senior Engineers role are given to guys with 2+ to 4 years of exp. 4+ to 6 will be Analyst, 6+ to 8 will be module Lead and 8+ onward will be managers and so on.

I attended an interview in Company B, according to their policy 1 to 4 years of exp professionals will be a Engineer, more than 4 years of exp professionals will be a Senior Engineer.

Hence, if I join company B then I have to join as an Engineer and they will make me a senior engineer in 2015 (probably based on the role change cycle explained by their HR). They are giving me a salary hike also.

Now my concern is if I join company B, then there will be a demotion in my role from senior engineer to engineer. If I accept this offer then in upcoming days, again when I decide to move on then won't it be questioned that why I moved to a lower role during my switch from company A to company B? What to do ? Totally confused

Kindly provide your valuable inputs on this.

Thanks,
Anthony

Hi all,

In an interview, the first question asked is: "Tell me something about yourself / Introduce yourself". For an experienced professional, how to reply this in a compact and smarter way?

What I used to reply on this is: My name, My Native, My designation in present org, working technologies and the client name for whom I have been working.

Kindly let me know what else should be added or replace from what I mentioned above.

Hi all,

For experienced professionals, is it compulsary to carry original marksheets at the interview venue?

At times, I might need to travel from one state to another in India for appearing in some of the interviews, hence asked this. Kindly let me know on this.

Hi all,

I am from India and I have seen in most of the job offers, the experience required for experienced professionals are from 3 years to 5 years.

1) If an individual is having 2 years 11 months of experience and have to serve 2 months of notice period in his present company, then will that professional be able to appear for an 3 years experience interview (since at the time of joining, anyways 3 years will be completed including his notice period) ?

2) If somehow after adding up all the days, suppose an individuals experience is 2 years, 11 months and 15 days (suppose) at the time of joining an organization which hired professionals with 3 years of relevant experience, then will there be any issues at the time of joining?

Kindly let me know on these two facts.

Regards,
Anthony

Hi,

For logging the request and response, we used to implement "handlers" in a web service which means all the request and response has to go via this handlers.

For your case, what you can do is to implement an handler in the web service, save the request and response xml somewhere i.e. a file or a BLOB column, and read the same from your swing application.

Thanks.

Hi all,

I used to work on quite a few java technologies as a part of my daily work. I am very good in few of them, average in the others. What is the best way to highlight same in my resume?

I don't want the interviewer to ask expert level question in which I am average. Again, I don't want to end up with not mentioning something which might be an extra advantage to get the job. What is the best way to add skills in resume? I have seen in some of the job portals mentioning sections like Primary Skills and Secondary Skills. Is it a good way to mention skills in resume having these sections?

Kindly advice.

I would suggest you to ask your module lead (or, immidiate senior to whom you will be reporting) what kind of web service you will be working around before starting straight away. The concepts of a RESTful service is totally different (except the fact that both of them are web services) from a SOAP based service.

For a RESTful service, check the below wiki link to get started; its a superb one

Thanks a lot for the reply. I am confident enough to crack the interviews

Shall I expect specific questions like what exactly I did in my first organization in that little period of time?

And if I tell that I was on bench than will it be a bad impression to the interviewer (Though I wont say that I was on bench but still eager to know)?

Thanks a lot for the reply
