Thanks, that gets a bit tricky then. Sept - Nov sounds like it would be better in that case, after summer hols.

Thanks for all the advice. I'll probably take leave from my current job and spend a month in the UK to give it a go. Timing is important though.

July/August? Do you mean the summer holidays? I suppose things might be a bit slow then?

When would be a better time to enter UK for job search?

It's a tough job market. With the recession and all the gloomy news, I was wondering when would be a better time to enter UK to search for a job? Now, before the new grads come out in summer? As it's already summer, will employers be making adjustments for the new grads flooding the job market in a ...

I wonder what effect all this is having on the employers and recruiters. Are they also shifting towards a deliberate or subconscious preference for British workers over skilled migrants to fill posts, i.e. British jobs for British workers? There are obviously anti-discriminatory laws, equal employme...

What details do you provide to prospective employers?

To those who have successfully applied for and secured jobs, I'd like some advice. When applying for jobs, should I mention my visa status, nationality, gender, age and dates of previous employment? Apparently, under anti-discriminatory regulations job applicants are not required to reveal their gen...

Thanks.

Is it advisable then, to mention it outright when applying directly to companies for jobs and when making initial contact with recruitment agents? I'm not sure if that will make them view my application differently?

Coming to your original question, I will not take Fixed Term Contract. I was unemployed for some time and I did get few calls for fixed terms contract but said NO to all of them unless they offered very great salary. Just think, why they wanna offer you fixed term contract and not permanent/contrac...

mjmani, Your letter sounds similar to the one I submitted, which was the basis of my application being rejected. You shouldn't worry though, as each case is different and will be treated as such by the CW, but perhaps you might want to tweak it a bit. It may be better to include something like the f...

NutanRaj, there isn't a rejection stamp but there is a stamp with a reference number. As 1971 said, there will be a record of it.

The simple answer is NO. Those waiting for ILR on the current rules will have to meet the new rules when they come into force. Why you might ask? Thanks Frontier Mole.

Well, I can't speak from experience but perhaps you can explain that you applied for canada, which has long processing times, before you applied for the UK.

After 2.5 years, ILR is some time away yet. Do you intend on having and using both UK and Canadian visas?

As they're all the same except for the initials used in different documents, you shouldn't need an affidavit. Simply mention it in your cover letter.
