It is very subjective. If someone changes job example after 3 years and it shows an up move in both his career and salary then yes it is positive.PartyLike-A-Russian wrote: ↑Wed, 06 Oct 2021 10:07 pmHi Sms,sundaymorningstaple wrote: ↑Tue, 28 Sep 2021 2:09 pmHonestly? Not going to be easy. However, my gut says why not try at least once. Working in a Gov't agency. and for 3 years the salary seems to be within an okay range. As noted by yourself, ethnicity/nationality might be the biggest stumbling block as you are going to be tossed in the 7.5% 'I' group in CMIO. with huge number of applicants for the least number of vacancies. Other than that, maybe not here long enough, but if it your only employer since arriving it's worth a shot. Just don't bet all your marbles on it.
I wonder if growing (position and income) in the same company is better for PR than changing jobs. I think it is as it shows stability of the company and industry and diligence of the candidate. What's your opinion?
You might know that software engineers usually change jobs every 3 years on average. Some do it more often. And it's considered normal.
P.S. And by staying the foreigner doesn't steal new openings from locals
3 years in IT in a company with a good up move wont be counted as negative in my view.
Still does as if in case the person leaves, that position can be replaced with a local staff
