Hi Amar,

Tech interviews of consultant are not that tough.They just judge basic knowledge on the technology(that you have worked on).I have undergone this process.So don't worry too much on that just concentrate on your basics.

I agree with Rajesh. Most of the times the questions are repetitive and selected from a list of questions. I am not sure if the questions are asked by technical interviewer.

They will just see/check:
1. They can project you as a 5+ experienced person, if required.
2. You can learn new tools/technology fastly if required.
3. If you have 2-3 java certificates then no need to worry at all. They might request you to get if you don't have already.
4. Your English - here not to worry much, just basic communication skills are mandatory.

HTH.

And ofcourse, some money! They will typically ask you to bear the cost of Visa processing, ie about $2000 or part of it. This amount is not very high considering that you can get it back in a few months in US. But be careful about their antecedents w.r.to the sponsorship, placement, payment of salalry etc. There are so many black sheeps among the consultants that, it seems now they exceed the white ones. Especially beware of consultants from NJ area.

So are there any technical interviews from the client company directly??

Or is it that only the body-shopping agents conduct the tech. interviews?

One more observation of mine is, most of the consultants are based in NJ only...

But that's a risky thing ,right??

What If a candidate is deemed unsuitable at the client site ,even after being screened by the body-shoppers ,and thereby rejected ?

Yes that is risky, but that is how body shoppers will work. Some body-shoppers will train you if they feel your skill set is not matching to their clients. Many guys do take training in different areas before they fly.

Hi Amar,

Can you please give me the list of consultants you have posted your resume to? I'm also in a plan of applying for H1 and in need of information on the consultants list. It would be of great help if you can provide.

Thanks
