I worked at Svam InternationalRecommendsNeutral OutlookRecommendsNeutral Outlook
Working in the US opens a new market for an IT professional. This market is much better than the Mexican industry (at least nowadays). Svam offers the possibility for you to move to the US and start in a good market. Salary is enough for bachelors to survive the time you work with them and you'll get hosting for some days. This company finds potential clients for you and manages interviews (most remote, some in person) and pays your one way bus, train, or airplane (if far) to your new project. Having experience in the US is a great professional growth and a great experience.
This company is not a serious IT option for more than some months. I found inconsistencies on their management and on what they promise and what they actually do. They promised me a salary since the day I arrive, however they didn't mention how much they would pay (you suppose it's the same salary you were promised, that didn't happen). Also they promised a house while having a project in New York. Suddenly they started charging people rent (never mentioned that before). I recommend that, once you are settled and had some experience, move to a good company or as a consultant with the real US salaries.
Advice to Management
Please be more specific on what you offer as employer. I suggest to the management to focus a little bit more on employees, practically you are an HR company for most employees. Also I would recommend less middle vendors, that way you can offer competitive pay to consultants.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Svam International.
I saw the vacant from this company on an online site at 2011. I contacted them by email, then after a week I had conversations with the HR manager and a technical guy remotely. After a couple of HR interviews and a technical interview I received an offer by email.
