in india, can i find a job?

i was just wondering if people here would know if i had any chance of finding employent in india (i dont mind what i do, call centre etc) for the next 1-6 months.

im an undergraduate student from the uk, already in india (currently in mumbai, heading to jaipur to go to hindi school there) as part of my year abroad - i'm studying Hindia and Arabic at uni. obviously my english is of native standard/accent, so i guess that might be my selling point. but im not sure what kind of chance/difficulties i face in finding a job here. im not doing it for the money, i dont mind earning an indian wage, its more for the experience.

any suggestions would be most appreciated.

perhaps you have learnt enough to teach english? otherwise i feel most jobs here are very hard work for very very little pay but you can live here very cheaply if you know what locals know good luck! ive found living here a great experience good luck

IMHO, Call Centres would definitely hire a natural English "Voice Trainer". You are actually from the homeland of English... so it would be a cinch to net a Call Centre job. Also, trainers work only in daytime... not at night!

I don't think you are allowed to get a job, legally speaking :) What visa are you on..study visa? I am quite positive that it would be illegal (at least those on a tourist visa are not allowed to get employment. Only foreigners here on a work visa can work..and those too only in the job they got the visa for).

Very Filmi,

There have been other threads that this issue has been discussed

Please do a search for 'employment in India' ..and similar terms, to reach all those threads and discussions.

I am sure, they will be helpful and will provide loads of information that you need.

I think you can check in Pune, if you want to hang around near Pune.

The home of call center industry is Bangalore and second is Delhi. So depending on your city preference, you can consider hunting for a job.

Let me know if you need any more info on this one.

The other options are to try the british call centers in mumbai . ;)
It doesn't interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare dream of meeting your heart's longing.

Those call centres wouldn't be there but for the fact that there is no shortage of local staff. :(

They still hire people with English as their first language though - probably not to take the calls themselves but to train people up into sounding "local".
For people to actually take the calls they seem to look for people with at least a degree, but would also probably want people that are planning to stay long-term

There was another thread a while back. There are sites with Indian vacancies... the qualifications they ask for trainers seemed very high indeed.

Trust me, if you go the unconventional route, you may find many exciting openings....
My friend went to Muzzafarpur in Bihar...& ended up being the legal advisor to a dreaded Don ...Vijay Munna Shukla who was in Jail for killing a minister point blank....only qualification they looked in my friend was he spoke good English...& they needed someone to be a mediator for supreme court advocates...& what was the remuneration.....$10k per month plus accommodation & car.....
He left the job after 3 months is another story....
