I want to learn US IT recruitment process. I understand its very different from Indian Recruitment process. I have managed to get some information online but its too descriptive. It would be nice if anyone can share a powerpoint slide or share the link for online understanding of US IT recruitment.

A individual is treated as a Self Incorporated or a Corporation and he is payed in a un taxed manner, the individual himself have to pay all his taxes
