Hi Ritu,
You can also try for opportunities in London. A few people from my London Office travel from Birmingham. It costs �500-650 per month. It takes about 1.5 hours.

Hey, thanks for that reply Sameer.
I am looking for all possible options, but i still feel Birmingham would be a better place to start as I am going to be new there. So I am not sure if travelling is managable initially. Do you have any idea about the job market at 'Solihull'? this place is near to Birmingham (abt 20 mins from there). We are going to stay at this place most probably.

Thanks for the advice Dipak, but I am not obsessed with going to UK or any other country for that matter. I have a steady and challenging job here in India. However, I need to relocate to UK, as my husband is going to work there for some time period. Consequently, I need to find a job there�

P.S. The market is doing well in the city.

This feels good. :-) Can you tell me if the market is good in big cities only. I mean, do I stand a chance of a good job near smaller cities like Birmingham? (I am not even sure if Birmingham is small.) If I submit my resume from India to the job aganecies in UK, will they consider my eligibility? Or do I have to do when I reach/relocate to UK?

And yes, I totally agree with you Kashif! Better communication skills are must for any job and in any country. In India, English is not the first language. However, during the interview, the communication skills do have higher preference over knowledge. If the person cannot explain his knowledge/skills well, then having that knowledge is not useful. So a good communication is a must.

Thanks for the information.

Hey, thanks Jogi!
By the way, can you tell me hows the job market there? how much scope i have after 4+ yrs of java exp. For getting the job in UK, is it necessary to have some prior exp. in UK itself?

Can anybody give a general idea of job market there?

Hi Prema,
I understand your concern. I am definately not going to rely on this forum, and have already started enquiring abt other authoriozed places who can give me this info. I have seen ppl asking so many question abt getting h1 visa, discussing contract terms in it and other serious matters in this forum. So persuing such a serious discussion is definately not harmful as long as u r not discussing very personal and confidential info.

I dont agree that when ppl r discussing something serious or answering questions, they r doing any favor on others. I beleive, this is a FRIENDLY place and ppl r helping each other and not doing favors! I felt as if i have offended somebody by asking such serious questions!!

I have read many such discussions about this topic in this forum, but i still want to know I hope, somebody helps me out. Well the situation is like this: I work for a good company in Pune and have 4+ yrs of Java/J2ee experience. However, my husband is opting to stay in Uk for a yr. His company has issued a work permit to him to do so. Now, i came to know that according to laws in UK, since my husband has WP, I am eligible to work in UK too. Is that right?

Secondly, how is the job market in UK? Especially around Birmingham? (Cause my husband would be working there) Will the job consulting agencies consider my eligibility? how much scope i have after 4+ yrs of java exp. How do i approach these agencies? does anybody know their counterparts in India so that i can apply from here and get the job before relocating to UK? For getting the job in UK, is it necessary to have some prior exp. in UK itself?

Any answer would really help me!
