I am working in c, unix kernel (have done MCA) for three years. Since I got married (1.5 yrs) in the same city, so this is my first job. Now my hubby might be going to Ipswich, UK for a period of 1 to 1.5 years. I would be accompanying my hubby, but I would like to work there too. Visa allows me to work but the question is how soon will I get a job? I also have a house loan to pay, so not working is not a workable solution. From the people I have contacted I have come to know that IT jobs are available but getting them might take time. Jobs like admin etc can be got faster. I would like to try and get an IT job or a TA/RA kind of job first. My hubby can take care of the loan for some months. If I don't get anything then I would be ok to do any kind of job. Now my question is how long should I wait to get an IT job? Not working or doing an unrelated job (without the benefit of maternity leave connections), how bad will it be for my career once I come back to India? Please give your views. Thanks, Sanchita.
