Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
My humble opinion ... .Dont think about approaching anywhere close to the UK in the current scenario, unless you have a few interviews scheduled. Sorry to be clearly honest here, J2EE domain doesn't seem to be in it's best these days and you dont want to be spending your hard earned money here do you?!Karuna wrote:Hi all,

Most Tier 1 skilled migrants tend to leave good jobs and come here for the purpose of earning well and saving up. There is a small minority that tend to settle down in the UK with plans of getting their family/making a family home in the UK.
So taking that into consideration, if a well experienced person plans to settle in the UK then yes, overall quality of life is way better out here - but again its all so very subjective on what one qualifies as 'Good Quality Life'
The rest of the experienced lot who have years of quality work under their belt and plan to move here by quitting good jobs, leaving family behind etc are taking a huge risk - which is what we are all highlighting in terms on savings. This category of people tend to stay alone or with friends and shared accomodation and hence dont look into quality of life here as thats not the main reason they are here. And for all those people, in today's market scenario, its not worth the hassles, tension and waste of money quitting and moving over. As I said earlier, pay packages back home are superb today and directly comparable with UK Salary structures for those with quality experience
The rest, I am afraid, is upto the individual only
Excellent comments there and I fully agree. If financial reasons are your main motivation, you're likely to be better off somewhere else especially in these difficult times. If however, there are other aspects that you are looking for e.g. lifestyle, cultural experiences... that becomes more of a personal decision and all the best to you.ashishashah wrote:'quality of life' is very much subjective..
My point is if MONEY is your major criteria to go to UK then think twich,but if you generaly like UK then u r good to go..
