Employed – Great Britain

Sometimes you may feel you are useless even though if you have huge archives of your past experience working in Corporate industries. Yes, I have been into some reputed and top notch industries around the world for almost 5 years and exemplified all my skills to become an IT expert(probably many can call it as survival of the fittest). It’s been a wonderful experience as I have developed a  new network of friends after graduation and still growing. It was that difficult time I have decided to leave my country and decided to pursue my career in Great Britain with lot of hopes. I had all sorts of work permit , skills and other required docs but unfortunately getting job in UK is not that easy as I was expecting it in India. Yeah it was that difficult moment I have started to think myself as an unfit in UK and decided to land up in some work that would help for my survival. For atleast 3 months I have been looking for some opportunities in Great Britain and have not got anything as I have narrowed down my job search to North West .  The annoying calls from recruitment agencies, getting all the information from you and never coming back with a response is like adding insult to your injury. That is the time I have decided to develop my job search skills and became less dependent on the recruitment agencies. I did all the online research and started applying to the companies career web portal and contact them through e-mails. This kind of approach finally paid me off and I got a job offer from a company that is based out of NorthWest UK. I was really happy as I have got job based on my skills and experience and all the pressure on my head smoked out. Getting employed in UK is not as easy as in India , as you really need the right skills to match the job description. For all the jobs we apply we really need to provide the reason why we are applying for it in a brief covering letter.  Always find a job with a positive attitude that you wanted to learn something new in your work and never turn back to your previous job as you may have less chance of replicating the same.

All the best!.



Tier-4 Dependent Visa in UK

Hello folks , hope this post provides much of the information that your are in need off. This post talks for Tier-4 dependents. Tier-4 dependents are elgible to work in UK as long their Spouse/Partner  has the right to work atleast for 20 hours per week stamped in their Visa.  Also the Spouse/Partner must have Visa for more than 12 months. You can work fulltime anywhere in UK and you do not need any sponsorship from the employer. For skilled workers you can  start applying for jobs online by providing your details in CV and covering letter. Never hesitate to mention your situation in covering letter and make it clear that you are into Tier-4 dependent. Many of the recruiter does not have much knowledge of Tier-4 dependent visa  as they are mostly aware of Tier-2 sponsorship. Always highlight to the recruiters that you do not need any sponsorship from employers. Before you start applying for the jobs it is always recommend to register for National Insurance number. All you have to do is  make a call to the National Insurance call center and provide your full name as in your Passport with your current residence in UK. A week later you may get some documents to fill in up through Post and you are expected to return back with a photocopy of your passport and visa stamping. It is not necessary to have National Insurance and apply for the job, you can mention to your recruiter that you have applied for it. But try to get one ASAP. Few tips on searching for Jobs. Most of recruiters would look for permanent position, as you may visa for limited period of time it is always recommended to apply contract/ temporary positions. All the best. Hope you find this post an useful one.

Opportunities sealed by HR’s

The year 2008 is the worst ever days for the fresh graduates.Many havent got any job yet and still searching for it.IT field is down at its knees and there are layoffs rather recruitment.One year made a big swing in Economy.Persons who are in search of job finds it difficult to reach.Many have said that there is no opening in companies.But that is not true.There are vacancies and all those have been filled without opening the mouth.Those vacancies are being filled through back door.The HR who is in  charge of recruitment board informs his close ones and known persons about the vacancies and gives first priority to those people.If you come to know that there is an opportunity,even though you do good in interview you cant succeed, since the short list have been prepared already;The HR will be paid with good sum of money or the first month salary after finishing the interview process.The most sad thing is,there are people who involve in brokering for job and deceives people who are in frustration to get job.

These people should be identified and pelted with stones.Dont HR’s know that there are people waiting outside without any job.HR’s are not gods from heaven.These kind of attitude will make a big impact on the growth of company.The recommendations  should be ignored and mere talent should be encouraged.
