Hi Everyone…

After spending a fair bit of time in India over the last four years, I have decided to look in to possibly finding work out there. I have recently returned from Delhi and would love to live out there. Could anyone help/ give information about how to go about doing this as I haven’t got a clue about where to start! Also is it easy for someone from the UK to find work out there….

Thank you

Hi Mandeep

You can visit job portals like Naukri.com,Monsterindia.com & upload your resume.Also,You can forward your profiles to some Indian professionals(friends) who can post it for internal jobs in their company.

You can even get in touch with consultants who take around 50% of 1st salary.

Wishing you good luck in your future endeavours!

Women safety in urban Indian cities is as safe /Dangerous as any civilized western nations.

Especially for a lone women if sticking to Morining 6 am to 10 pm to venture out then General safety is not a concern.

Delhi has great residential localities. Being India's National Capital safety is not a botheration.

Come October 2010 full service metro rails right from Delhi airport will be functional for a safer intercity commuting.

I too want to live in Delhi as it is close to Most Himalayan mountain terrains.

Wishing you good luck and all success.

Yes,finding work should not be much difficult in the growing economy,things have open up & job prospects have improved after a year of downturn.But,initially you might have to settle down for less remuneration,but as your experience grows(12-15 months),easy switch-over's & around 50% jump for IT,education related jobs(I didn't know your area of specialization)

There are some safety related issues in the metro cities,but most of them are minor incidents & can be avoided.I would say Tier 2 cities(Chandigarh etc.) are more safer.You can search the forum & will get many posts on this.

Please let us know for more queries.

Good Luck!!

Oh really? Can you back that statement up because I beg to differ. I've lived decades in cities in the west and 2 years in Delhi. Guess what, in those 2 years I've learned of more cases of sexual harassment of women than in all the time I lived in the west. And that part about 'sticking from 6 am to 10 pm', what does it mean, that women should stay in the house anyway after sunset? Regrettably, here that's true because of the prevalence of this 'eve-teasing' - I just LOOOVE the euphemism- and the fact that police are totally unreliable and that as a woman you'd be well advised to stay out of a police station at night.

While we were living in major metros in the west, my wife and I went out together and alone at all hours of day and night. Sure, there was criminality against property (ever year my car was vandalized or broken into) but never once did we experience the type of -implicitly allowed- crime against women. And if/when it happens here, the usual first question of the village sage is 'was she out alone at night?'. As if it's only natural that she got aggressed then.
