Topic: offtopic - WITCH salary hikes

I am not sure where you work, but corporate US has different view for salary increments. It is not like India. It is called cost of living raise and is only between 3-6% at the maximum. They try to keep it around the same rate as that of inflation. Even with promotions, one would get only between 5-8% raise in most US companies. Bonus amount is the key part. Low pay is a different topic, but salary hike is in this range only in US.

Topic: H4 EAD, Job search.


When I see threads like this I shake my head.

I have never heard any company telling that H4EAD is not an acceptable proof as part of employment. As long as you have skills, most companies care less as long as they don’t need any paperwork. I have never heard of big employer pulling such stunts. If your argument was factually correct than no H4 EAD holder would get a job.

This is absolute discrimination in its purest form on part of interviewer and/or employer. You should report these employers to Fed and local authorities. I bet only desi blood sucking employers whose days are numbered can pull such BS.



You are missing the whole point of govt's plan to rescind EAD mid of this year. They have officially published their plan in Federal register.

Topic: H4 EAD, Job search.

I am not sure why you are even getting this question at this point! H4 EAD rescind plan is in federal registrar and I am not sure what more credible information is needed for employers to comprehend that it is going to go away. Obviously nobody would be willing to hire. I don't think it could get any official than that. It is already dead and we need to accept it.

Topic: STEP BY STEP - How to Immigrate to Canada


What if you have a job offer from a Canadian employer? Will that guarantee you a PR?



No.. If your job is through intra-company transfer and if your company gives a letter stating that your employment is for one year, then you will get 50 points in Express Entry.

Or you will get 50 points if your job offer is LMIA exempt (something like PERM which concludes no Canadian citizen or PR available to do the job).

If not in above two, you need to work for one year to get Canadian experience which could also boost your points decently.

No points or PR in any other way through job offer.

If you meet the cut-off after that 50 point addition or with Canadian job experience, you can get invitation for PR. If your still below invitation cutoff, job offer even with the above two categories don't mean much.

And there is no way to escape from IELTS at all.. zero shortcuts to Canadian PR without getting good scores in IELTS for people applying from outside Canada.

Topic: Inevitable Employer Switch - Please HELP

There is a deadlock situation right now. It is not clear whether immigration reform will happen or not. And even if diversity lottery and family migration ends, only a small fraction or nothing may come to EB category. You can go ahead and switch jobs in my opinion.

Topic: Immigration Came to my Client Work Place


Hi Krishna ,

I had a similar exp .

2016 Feb 4 th week Stamping /visa extension .
2016 Mar 3 rd week i had a officer coming at work location ask about my client , pay ,role and how i report about work .

I was working from home then and later he came again to take the pics at my cube . He informed me that its a random check . If he needs any documents and told me that he will keep in touch if not i can carry on with my life.

2016 4th week he did ask (email)few documents passport pages , pay stubs very basic .

2016 apr 1st i told him that i travelling to india and asked if its okay , he informed there is no hardcore receipt for this query . i can move on with my life .

i have visa until 2018 June .... now waiting refile again . am with the same client since dec 2015 . Hope this helps please let me know about your extension exp or anything i need to consider .

Try to answer only to what he asks , do not try anything out of the box. Keep the conversation simple.



Thanks for sharing this!

How were you reached out? did your front desk tell you that someone has come to visit you? Or did the officer directly call your mobile?

Also when you were contacted, did you tell them that you have been working from home on that day? Did you ask anything like how long have you been working from home etc?

Topic: Canada Ground Realities


sorry sir, i am sure you sent this message in good faith. i saw the article. USA is no different. A doctor in india cannot come and practise profession from day 1 in USA.

IT on the whole other hand is different. You cannot expect to get work in old technologies just because you have 20 years experience in it.



People just read what they want to read. There are also other articles about immigrants struggling in Canada with examples from people having background on sociology, medicine, teaching, civil etc. I am not sure why people who coming knowing that they work in regulated profession start cribbing no jobs for them after landing there. I am pretty sure that the first thing one needs to look as a doctor while immigrating to any country is license requirements. And doctors definitely know what standards for medical professions are very high in western countries. They come knowing that and still complain that they are not being accepted as doctor. Same applies for engineering professions. There are tough exams to pass before one can practice their profession.

And in fields like sociology, it is hard to find jobs even in US even for locals. I am not sure why media goes picking such stories and people like this OP foolishly use it for their jealousy propaganda.

I presume he must be nearing 40s, must have applied GC through desi consultant in EV(infinity)C model. He must have checked that he would neither have English scores nor have age in his favor to get a good score to qualify for Canadian PR, he must be seeing people getting PRs on their merit, and this thread is an outburst of all of that.

Topic: Canada Ground Realities

Let it be whatever. Why are you jealous about people who want to move to Canada?

I believe you must be someone who doesn't meet the cut off to get the PR and without being able to stomach that, you are making sure that others don't move there too. I can't see any other reason for this post from someone who has no first hand experience about Canada and wants to buy what is written online.

Topic: No jobs in Canada


Australia is same like Canada while comparing to US - Small economy, less jobs, less pay with high cost of living and free healthcare except that Aus doesnt have cold winter like in Canada.

Only mining industry pays very high. But now thats also in downturn/less prospects...



Absolutely true. Getting job in Australia is equally tough and common skill sets like Java return lesser positions in Australia compared to Canada. Australia also has reptile issues.. both poisonous and non-poisonous, and high skin cancer rate. Above all they have looming water scarcity (Canada has lot of freshwater) and cities like Sydney are extremely crowded for its infrastructure. It is impossible to get $150k job in Australia.

Topic: No jobs in Canada


I see. Also, seems like TN visa is tied to an employer so changing jobs means getting a new TN visa. Pain.



then you could just continue working in Canada in that case where you would be citizen. TN visa is anyways restricted to System Analyst occupation and not for every IT professional.

Most waiting in backlog won't make it through proposed US merit system due to age factor. When they move to new system, they will surely make H1b a truly a guest worker program by capping the years for which someone can be in US with a temp visa.

They will make sure that TN is either scrapped or made stricter when NAFTA is renegotiated. Just removing system analyst occupation will make sure nobody in IT moves to US from Canada. I am pretty sure that would be next.

All in all I feel people over 30 make up their mind and be more or less ready to give up US dreams. None of the shortcuts are going to work, no matter however skilled one is.

Topic: No jobs in Canada

Definitely US is much bigger market and tons of opportunities, agreed. But your job market potential shrinks to 10% or lesser if you require visa sponsorship. And it is going get worse in coming days fearing a protectionist govt. Even employers employing brightest will start thinking twice before sponsoring visas.

And people working EV....C shouldn't even speak about salaries or savings. Most employed with desi consultants make dismal end salary after factoring losses for five or six middle men cuts, bench, lack of vacation, lack of relocation, paying for own H1b etc etc.

And it is an absolute joke that getting Canadian PR is easy and US GC is difficult. Canadian PR requires good English scores, lesser age and Master degree to get direct invitation through Federal worker program.

US GC is difficult only for Indians because of country cap system. People born in other countries can just walk with green card if they get a job offer from US employer with zero merits and poor English. They don't even need a H1b and can just come with Green card.

I have no idea about job market there , but OP post more or less seems to have been created without any first hand experience and just to convince himself that I am not applying and let me make sure that nobody else is doing. Why don't make a decision based on the inputs from your several friends living there instead of asking in public forum like this.

//The point I am trying to make is this - I've seen countless posts about moving to Canada/AU/NZ - not 1 materializes. Not //

This I totally agree. I have actually looked up lots of old threads asking about Canada or Australia, none would have moved. Most would be still in US hoping for silver lining govt after govt, and law after law! It's probably a must have and let expire in every US Desi life.

MIT - No. Cambridge - Yes I would deny. Actually - if you know how Google recruits - you can pretty much dictate which city you want to work in. with MIT you obviously can't. There are people who like or don't mind spending 3 months in arctic weather - and that's fine for them. But a lot of mankind - including - I would argue most Indians - wouldn't like tp spend a quarter of their lifetime going thru torturous weather.



So what about a dream offer in Wall street or Columbia admission? NY has bad weather too. How will you offset it ?

What if someone in H1b is laid off and east coast is the only place where they are getting next offer?

I lived in Calgary for one year, and I will never be back to Calgary again. It is a torture, and I hate snow and freezing weather. Thank you!



US east coast, mid west are all the same worst weather. It is definitely a factor to consider, but shouldn't be a deal breaker.

Will you deny an opportunity to work with Google in Cambridge if they pay your dream salary or would you have denied an admission in MIT because of weather reasons?

Topic: Moving to Canada/UK ?

Canada neither job market nor pay structures like US. Plus higher tax and higher cost of living. Overall dramatically less savings and difficulty in getting good jobs holds back people from moving there. But many do make it work with perseverance too. So it would be up to someone's priority.

UK immigration is not easy. It mandates job offer and one can get PR only after 6 years of residing there. But in case of Canada, one can enter as PR itself and become a citizen in 4 years or so.
