Hi friends,
I am B.E Information technology and with 3.5 years experience.
I have been working on java,jsp,servlets
i have applied for h1b through a consultant company whereby i have to go there and then give interviews in various companies and work as consultant.

I want to know what is the difference between working style in indian companies and u.s companies.
I have heard they are very punctual for time..any other??

Also can anybody tell me what is the difference between interview patterns in india and u.s
in india...where mass recruitment is taking place in companies like IBM ,they only ask simple core java questions.. and in companies like Oracle ..they ask detailed questions on project's...
same way i would like to know what is the particulars needed for interview in u.s//

1.Its easy to get a job in india , and its tough to get a job in USA

2.Because 80% of jobs are sent to India/China.In the 20 % remaining jobs there are atleast 10% jobs are perminent for which Citizens & GC holders are only eligible.

3.For 10% remaining jobs there is lot of competition(GC's,Citizens,MS Completed students,people with 7-8 years of exp)

4.In india you'll get perminent jobs (because you are indian citizen),here jobs are contract based(Starting from 1 month to 1 year - mostly because you are on Work Visa).

and in the US you're judged skill when applying for a job, not on the number of certificates on your resume (which is how the Indian situation looks to me from all the posts here).

Can you cite a source for this data or are you just making up numbers? (I am very adamant about people not making up statistics.)

Just a personal experience that I have got from some colleagues that have worked in India (so it should not be generalised):
You might be expected to be more proactive in US/Europe than in India i.e. do everything that is needed to be done to solve a problem and not just what you are told by your manager. And you dont have to call anyone (e.g. your manager) by "Sir"

Can you please point us to a few posts that indicate that skills do not matter in India but certifications definitely do.

thanks!

Any manager India or US Or XYZ wants the problem fixed!. I think addressing the professor as "Sir" exists only in colleges/univs. But its been quite a while since i graduated...I'm not sure what is the scenario now.
I seriously doubt if IT guys in bangalore address their manager as "Sir".
I just asked my manager btw and he personally found it to be very funny.

hey Jeroen ,
that certification thing that you are thinking is bcos all those java people going for certification visit javaranch ..
but not all..
so when u hear about certifications in the forum..its bcos indian java programmers tryingfor certi..or already having certi post their comments but thousand (if not lacs) of java programmer in india..do not even know about javaranch..and hence your assumptions is not fully correct.

US Interviews are very easy when compared to Indian interviews for similar jobs. To get thru US interviews u need to have high level undertsnading of your projects but where as for Indian interviews u need to be very technical. I have given several interviews in US and almost all of them are very easy and it also depends upon type of position. I never gave any indian interview but heard they are really tough for the same position. In US, most of the contracting jobs just needs basic skills to get thru.For permanant position, I guess US employers scrutinize more when compared to Indian employers.

Sri,

Where did you pull the number 80% from? You may want to consider this:- The IT industry in India is supposed to employ 1.3 million people and that includes medical transcriptionists, call centers, data entry employees etc. Obviously the Indian industry will employ some. So let us take an extreme example and assume that 1 million jobs have come from US. That would mean that there are 1.25 million IT positions in US and after the 1 million, only 250,000 jobs left in IT. Doesn't make sense, does it? Please consider the implications before you post on any sensitive topic.

Sorry but I have heard just opposite.

I dont agree at all. In fact it is for H1-B openings where certifications are given more importance.

While this is your own thread so I suppose you could hijack it, you already posted this question here so please don't duplicate that thread and we'll answer it there.
