I wonder whether this sort of overseas job advertisement is pertinent for the people in India who do not have much analytic experience in business environment. Because overseas employers might not be happy to deal long visa process. Perhaps Indian employers may be interested. Though I'm not quite sure whether it is right. But that's my thought anyway. Reply

Venu, Fair suggestion. We get a significant traffic from outside India. The idea was that people outside India might be interested in these jobs. We are adding location based filters in the portal we are developing so that you can filter out basis your preference (Oops I leaked it!). This functionality will be rolled out next month. Hope that is fine. Regards, Kunal Reply
