      Okay so here's my limited experience with that and YMMV.

      I don't have work permit for European countries. I live and work in Bay area.

      I applied for G and FB in Switzerland. Got calls from them to schedule onsite in their Bay area office for the position in Switzerland.

      So maybe u will have luck applying to companies that are big and have local office to interview u in person.

      Oh dude. I know.

      Was just playing on his words.

      U: "I am not indian"
      Him: "why?..."

      He was questioning the other comment. I was making a joke as if he was questioning ur not being indian.

      Cuz maybe he was kidding. Or maybe u called out his bs.

      I am guessing the former.

      I am just sad at my personal state of affairs since it takes me a really long amount of time to do a hard question

      The hard part is determining what bucket a problem falls into. Once u get into habbit of doing that it gets easier.
      May I suggest:

      U: speak for yourself.
      Ken M: I am all indian on this blessed day.

    Connect with recruiters on linkedin instead of applying. Those applications usually go to the black hole.
