Same thing happened to me...for an intra infy project i was interviewed by the client, but another chap, with worse comm skills, technically equivalent, got through, because he had previous onsite experience..and he went abroad again, .arre jab bhejoge nahin to experience kahan se aayega:(
All Infy people
Its true! Atleast in case of Infy I have seen very few (actually only 1) genuine Onsire candidate in my tenure there. For the rest I dont know what was logic; may be random().
Dont worry fighter, there are many sloggers and genuine people at offshore infy, onsite is worse job in kmost of the cases, but it is as it should not be or I dont know till date..... I preferred to leave

dudes,

I have one important question. After working for around 3 years in Infosys, I appeared for an interview. In my HR round, it was questioned if I have ever travelled to onsite. This has roused a rubble in my head. I want to know how much value add it is to have gone onsite (exposure to client interaction).
WTF is it to interact with a client??? He is just another boss imposing some deadlines. My 1 year long call-center experience has exposed me enough to clients (if that term means only firang foul-mouthed bosses).

Just remember that a specialist role will help you land a onsite opportunity more than a generalist role. Specialist in a tool, package, language or even domain.
This is just a theory and practical is quite obscure. You just have to be at the right place at the right time with (most imp ) your seniors being in right mind-frame. It is as simple as selecting questions and cracking all of them in CAT papaer mind u its good to dream but at the end of day please think what u get and what u deserve. If u get more then be merry and if you get less than what u deserve then u know what to do

Many companies are cutting their costs by decreasing travel. Though the glory days of late-90s when every tushar-dinesh-harish were going to the US on a H1B visa might never come back, even long term onsite which was the norm in companies like TCS and Infy are harder these days.

Having said that if you get staffed onto a right project with the correct role then who knows where you might land. Just remember that a specialist role will help you land a onsite opportunity more than a generalist role. Specialist in a tool, package, language or even domain.

I hope your question is answered. Dablu remember how your thread degenerated last time. I am looking for you to make sensible posts. Remember the moderators are watching you

I'd totally agree with this. Increased Off-shore leverage is going to be something the Indian IT cos are gonna look at seriously. For a simple reason that they'll bring much more profits. Wipro has an offshore leverage of around 70%, while Infy and TCS have around 60%. TCS now plans to bring that to 85%. ie. for every 1.5 persons onsite, there'd be 8.5% supporting back in India. Increased communication/broadband et al, make it possible that almost all the work can be done back in India. I2I (India 2 India) will be the driving force for these companies in the future. So for all those wannabe yuppies dreaming to go to US and hang out with the firang babes, driving around in second-hand Mazdas, this might come as a rude shock. But then that is the reality.

ps: Working on-site is shit! Its just slavery out there.
ps1: If cos do plan inc off-shore leverage, who the hell will join these cos ? After all 96% of the guys joining TCS/Infy have only one dream - Going onsite!!

I understand your impatience to settle abroad. But think about it this way, if it were so easy to immigrate then everyone would be living off unemployment benefit in US or UK.

So tell

(a) Which country do you plan to immigrate to ? how ? What will you do there ?

(b) How will you fund for your MBA ? Dont you need exp before that ? After MBA how will you stay back ?

There are other questions too but atleast give a detailed post of what you are planning so one can give an educated reply.
