Hi,
I wanted to know how is the job market for a java j2ee indian guy with more than 6 years of indian work experience.
Are the interviews really hard to crack?
do they value your 'indian' IT experience in JAVA?
what salary should one expect with that job profile?


thanks
sandeepraj

I dont know about Java but form what I know (past experience), interviews are easy, unlike those in India, they just ask you what all you know, and no they dont get into bookish questions, they usually ask you if you know XYZ (which would be the job requirement) and thats that. it is difficult though to get noticed amongst heaps of CVs, all you have to do is follow up, there are times when consultants do not even get to see your CV. they gets hundreds of applications and they quickly scan the ones that have key words as mentioned in the position advertised. You have to call each consultant and tell him you sent the CV yesterday, at times they straight away tell you they nd time to scan thru and that they will get back but at times they ask you a few things about yourself and that is when you have a chance to make it.

Hi Sandeepraj,

Looking at your post, I realize, that by now you are already in Australia.

I have just received my 175 grant and am as with everyone I am going through that fuzzy zone of migrating without a job in hand. So, before even stepping into the job hunt phase I thought I would check with you for any information on current job market in AU (for Java ppl).

Thanks!
Aditi
