As a matter of fact, they are running our of programmers. I work for a
company that out-countries a lot of work (and outsources a lot, too). Bangalore is
in a tech crunch much like pre-millennium Silicon Valley, I'm familiar with
a couple of outsourcing companies who have outsourced some of their work back
to NJ.

In addition, the wages have gone up as supply diminishes. As a result, (1)
Bangalore is competing less on price than on quality of work, and (2) other
cities like Hyderabad are competing for the low-wage outsource contracts.

The free market forces are once again changing the world market in faster
than local economies can respond.

As moderator of this mailing list, I get to see the spam and so on that
doesn't make it into your mailbox. But I can't help passing this one on.
Heck, maybe it's a job opportunity for someone; I know of at least one
American who decided a couple of years in B'lore (Bangalore, for the
unsophisticated <grin>) made economic sense.

Anyway, this is what I got (with company name removed to protect the guilty
and to not promote them):


Got this mail-id on one of the portals and hence the mail.
We, at XXXXXXXXXXXXX, Bangalore are looking at Java/400 professionals for
one of our prestigious projects and request you to contact me immediately if

Skills: Java/400. Good working knowledge on Java Development on Websphere /
iSeries 400.
Job Location: Bangalore

Please revert immediately to take it forward.

I'm tempted to post the name of the company just to see if we can do a
little "in-sourcing" <snicker>. But I won't. It's spam, and has no
business here, except as a point: this is a billion dollar IT outsourcing
company, and they're looking for iSeries Java programmers. And they can't
find any locally.

Make of that what you will.
