Hi All,

I have been aprroached by a consultant based out of Noida,India for filing an H1B for the year 2007. The deal as with most consultants is a one year contract....failing which I will have to forfeit the secuirty deposit of 2750USD.

I have 3.5 yrs of experience in C,C++,Unix in a good MNC in telecom domain in the NCR. By the time I reach US I will be having 4 yrs of exp.

Kindly tell me how good is the US market for my skillsets and especially in the Telecom domain. How much time does it normally take to get an opening in such skillsets.

Is it worth taking the risk?

Those of you have an idea about the consultancy I am talking about,kindly share your experience.

I would say IMHO than paying a company for working instead of being paid by it through a salary for your work is ALWAYS a bad idea whatever.

I'd rather suggest you put your resume on Monster or alike, stating clearly you need sponsorship for US, and carry on gaining experience meanwhile. Abroad US opportunities will come by themselves provinding you let others know you are open to them.

Best regards.

Hi San Ose,

I am new to this forum...so can you kindly explain the acronym IMHO

This one was explained by a kind Javaranch mate above.

There are others helpful acronyms you must know for US, mainly :
_ IMO (In My Opinion).
_ ASAP (As Soon As Possible).
_ EOE (Equal Opportunity Employer).
_ AFAIK (As Far As I Know).
_ RTFM (Read The F...... manual) (I know, not politicaly correct but so awfuly common, please note the auto-censorship as an excuse).

Please note that these acronyms are absolutely not specific to Javaranch, you may find them everywhere in any US conversation.

Perhaps some other helpful Javaranchers may be willing to complete the list of most common US acronyms for our friend...

Best regards.
