Hi,
I have 3 yrs of experience in J2EE programming and i have 3 sun certifications(SCJP1.5,SCWCD,SCBCD3.0).And i have got H1B stamped recently. But my concern is, the salary that has been offered to me. it is 47k dollars per year.Possibly i will be going to NewJersy state.i am really confused now as to what should i do next, should i take this offer. How much should i be able to save per month after all my expenses.

If i quit my current company, how much i can ask for.

From what i have heard, i think the pay offered to me is below par with others.They say it is better to stay in india than take this offer.

i want your advice

It's too late to start negociating now, isn't it? You are already on your way.

Your salary is generally reflective of what you know and what you can do. Experience and certifications are what will either get you an interview or consideration for a job. On the job,they are not as important as what you know and what you can do.

Is there something about how you present your skills that is causing you to get these kind of low offers? Are you able to clearly articulate yourself and your skills? Do you have skills that differentiate you from other candidates and the ability to communicate these differences to other people?

In fact i have not attended any interview so far.But this is what my company have offered to those who have gone on-site already.
But does these certifications are valued in US. How does it helps when it comes to recruitment.
what are the skill sets that are hot now.

Based on your certifications and years of experience, your salary is below par. Although you might not have a problem monetarily if you share an apt with someone, but still you should demand for more.

Also, would you be working in the NY metro area? In that case, the salaries are higher.

Not only are salaries higher in the NY city metro area, but costs are higher as well. Apartments in NY City are very expensive. Taxes are high, etc.

The salary seems to be low but can you get a foot hold and move on after 6 months or so? Do you have any binding contracts preventing that?

when you compare that with your current salary back home, is it better? I'm sure it is.
I'd take the offer if it was me, do it for the exposure, and opportunities that might come your way being there.
