Hello friends,

I am in my final semester of MBA.
I am taking one last class before I am done.
I will be graduating in May and it would be time to go and look for a job.

I have talked with two consultancies about what classes they provide and what I should do from now to be ready by the end of this semester.

I am a business major student so they both tell me to go do BA and/or QA

But when I talk to my friends with the similar circumstance like mine they did IT related classes like UNIX, Linux, Java, oracle or dot net and now they have their H1B. They tell me to go for IT field specially something like UNIX. Because that's what two of my friends did who are relatively close to me.

Now, my dilemma is in selecting the field.

Considering the fact that I need to apply for H1B once I get the job which field would be the most appropriate?

About my background in computers: I had done some C++ while I was in Nepal. However I was more gravitated towards graphic designing and post production when I was back home.

Does developer or database sound plausible?
Or should I stick with Business Analyst (BA) and/or Quality Assurance (QA)?

SQL is a good choice for you, but there are many ways to go on it. You can go as a dba. as a developer as a ETL developer BI Developer etc. So may be i can guide you on this and can also help you in your training no matter where you are its all online no contract to sign you sign a contract after you are placed.

This might be off topic but wanted to ask as it relates to IT anyway. I came to know of a QA called Datawarehouse/ETL testing. This is not a click here and there qa that people associate with. It requires you to know sql pretty well and have solid understanding of database concepts, data warehouse etc. In any projects, are there just a single qa or a team of qa to do ETL testing? I guess it depends as per my common sense, in order to test so many functionality and scenarios , there will be a team of testers to do the jobs. A friend of mine works by himself as an ETL Developer but another one works in a team of ETL developer. Any idea or experience one can share working as a qa? Did you work alone or in a team of QA? Thanks,

@Need Consultation: I think Business Intelligence is also an option, its a common ground between technical or advanced roles like programming/database and functional roles like BA. Its not very hard to learn and make your self proficient into and also is more technical than QA/BA roles.

The main thing to consider for people like you and me who do not have technical background and are in IT (or planning to do so) is not just finding a job, but being able to sustain in that job, especially when your H1B in the future will depend on having a job. I would suggest to start with something less advanced and once you're comfortable in it, move up the ladder.

Good Luck to you!

Thank You everyone once again.

This thread has been very helpful.

@Riddle had shared Agama and Betasoft in CA as the good consultancies to check into.
I have checked their websites and read their reviews. But this hasn't made me clear as to if they are truly good consultancies that would help with the H1B filing process. Since H1B filing is the main priority I would like to know about them before I commit.

I have read somewhere in sajha that there are some consultancies that charge you $1000 to start classes online. I was reading that these companies might be a run away companies or more talk no work companies, so beware. How true is that? I have no idea.

Anyone experienced or know someone who has experienced the above mentioned tragedy? Please share those consultancies.

Now let me boil down to my main question

Which consultancy is the best? (in terms of the following criteria)

1. H1B visa processing (You or someone you know already got the visa through this C)
2. Provision of online classes (w/o a deposit of $1000)
3. Best for job placement (connections w/ several companies and wait time after marketing less than a month)
4. Lodging, fooding, and other benefits
5. Percentage of Pay cut (Actual dollar value per hour)

Thanks again everyone for making this thread informative and classy.

Need consultation, your research is getting tedious. I've already given more than 2 cents. I'm gonna have to start charging you by an hourly rate if I prolong my session any further. Agama and Betasoft successfully file more than 50 H1B applications each year. Unless you come across reviews posted by the owners and instructors, five star reviews are almost non-existent when it comes to Indian Consultancies.

Stop fooling around and join a class already!

@Need Consultation: 1000$ deposit for either onsite or online courses are unheard of, and especially for an online training, does not sound genuine. So, yes one must be aware of such consultancies.

Regarding taking online or onsite, I think if you're into programming or database training, it is strongly advisable to take it onsite where the training is more interactive than online. If you're going for BI, BA or QA, I think online works fine - but again, if there's an onsite training, it would be a little more beneficial as you will also develop personal network with the instructor and other candidates that will be in the field as yours, and it might help later in the future.

Okay, now your queries: Which consultancy is the best? (in terms of the following criteria)

1. H1B visa processing (You or someone you know already got the visa through this C) -I can recommend Vastia Inc. located at Irving, TX. I know many friends of mine who have worked and made their GC or still work with Vastika. I also used to work for them, and from my experience i can say, unlike many Indian consultancies, they are easy to work with, flexible, and have good understanding. Google for their company review and you can view their H1B petitions, GC petitions, approval rates etc.
2. Provision of online classes (w/o a deposit of $1000) - as far as i know, they do have online courses coz I had taken an online course with them some time back.
3. Best for job placement (connections w/ several companies and wait time after marketing less than a month) - they have an array of network with reputable vendors that work directly with clients.
4. Lodging, fooding, and other benefits - i am not sure if they offer these, but assume they would, because to be competitive with other consultancies, they would have to
5. Percentage of Pay cut (Actual dollar value per hour) - not sure what the current percentage cut is, but used to be 70/30 and after a year or project 80/20

Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Any good consutancy in nj that offers data analyst or qa training and provides good housing. Guest house are infested with roaches and bedbugs.

I heard a company called Cloudeeva that accomodates u to live in a hotel. But they only provide training on BA and SQL BI Developer, Cognos, Financial Analyst as well. Also they ask you to write them $2500 as a safety check in case you flee after the training. I dont think any other cons offer hotel accomodation during training.

Dear guys, since y'all were so helpful on giving suggestion so here I am asking for one more suggestion please.

I need a help regarding choosing a right consultancy. I know it's almost impossible to find the one with 5 stars but still trying to find someone who at least gives better training because all the agencies these days seems like they wanted to get rid of you as soon as possible. Believe it or not one of the consultancy in Houston told me their training is only two weeks. How in the world they would finish the training in two weeks for a person like me who's not from IT field.

Long story short, if a consultancy ask for security deposit than how legit do y'all think the consultancy might be. Thanks in advance.

From my own experience as Developer for 8 years, I have seen with my own eyes BA that work with us.. they make very good money..

Developer work..good pay but very long hours..and sometimes you have to be on-call support..
BA work is very good pay...just goto meetings and make documents..
QA work is easy but pay also low...

I am thinking of switching to BA or QA position... Anyone know if QA job is easy to find ? Any thoughts ?

Mojaboy dude,

What is the salary range for the experience of 8 years being a developer? Are you referring to Database developer or Software developer (Programmer)?
Did you say BA makes more than developers (Programmers)?

SQL sever developer training will be a good place to start. down the road you can also go for DBA.

for the first project make sure you have a really good job support form what ever consultancy you go through. It will be very helpful to create a network of people working in same will be like "help me,help you" type of thing.

Usually after you join the project its all you....!!!
