@ blue....you would not buy trouble by going to congo, had few friends working there, very poorly maintained aircrafts, too much corruption, very poor living conditions, its an example of hell on earth.
one of my friend was even kidnapped by rebels there, PM of india had to intervene and deploy UN task force to get him back,can you guess where did they kidnap him? From the aircraft (king air) after it landed at an airfield.

Hi to everyone, I got an email from the Venture Overseas and they are conducting interviews in first week of august. The person I spoke to was not having sufficient information on the Payroll and other things. He asked me to come to Delhi(SOme Pitampara) place for Written and interview.

I dont knw... i didnt even ask her, she told she is from Ventura overseas.
Act, I was having mail conversation with Dharmesh Doshi, regarding details (which he never mentioned) and suddenly a lady calls one day to give a skype interview.
I didnt gave that, as whole process seemed fake, that lady was not ready to give me any sort of detail.....the only thing she repeated was "its 100% job guarantee"

Guys, you need to see here that this concept of paying for a job is bringing down the terms and conditions for all of us.
Please do not pay for a job. If you guys all stand united against this, airlines will have to stop this policy.

I didnt appear for any interview. She asked me for the very first round of interview on skype, and i asked her same thing, is it just a personal round or some technical, she wasnt sure about this and told "its for both".
I didnt appear because its not possible to give a technical round just like that, ofcourse i needed prep.

no, she didnt ask for anything to appear for skype interview but she did stress on bringing $6000 DD when i come to delhi.
By the way, the mail i got from them, it had an attachment with all payment details and there they have not mentioned this $6k anywhere.

its like.........

1. Submission of Documents with Venture Overseas Consulting Services Sdn.Bhd for review.
2. Registration for the process with Venture Overseas Consulting Services Sdn.Bhd with Initial installment of $16,000 USD.
3.Filing of Tourist Visa - Indonesia
4.Applicant pays the Second installment of $20,000 USD on receiving the Job Offer Letter
5.Applicant pays the Final installment of $9,000 USD on receiving the Air Tickets to Jakarta
6.The candidate flies to Indonesia.
7.If required, we give Type Rating & Line Training.
8.The applicant starts working post the training

so true.
and if that's not bad enough many actually come up and say "why don't you start flying?!" what do i fly? my car? paper planes?
" AI needs so many pilots, why don't you fly for them" yeah right, they'd welcome me with open arms!

And more than airlines interview im worried to face my aunt who is arriving tomorrow hahahaha.... im preparing my answer
Godamn kudos to the media for publishing soo many news about aviation boom back in 2007-2008, that we got overflodded by mudbloods :/.

OK..!!

So, i again get a call from this consultancy
They are conducting written examination at delhi on this 18th, calling every possible unemployed pilot like me, sending out the call letters and asking for confirmation reply to book the slot.

This time they aren't asking for any fee to appear for written.

Anybody else who got the call?
