This article is for those of you planning to work and live in the United States this year. If that’s you, you have come to the right place! The most common and traditional way to convert a student visa to a work visa is to apply for an H-1B visa. Since the H-1B visa application (also known as h1b 申请) and the H-1B lottery procedure (also known as h1b 抽签) are very complicated, you should always consider hiring an immigration lawyer (also known as 纽约移民律师) when you apply for an H-1B visa.
We are going to show you several options that will lead you to live the life you want in the United States. The first step to working in the U.S is to apply for an H1B Visa 2019 petition (also known as h1b 2019)with the USCIS. The problem many of you are probably facing with getting an H1B visa sponsor is that you do not have one yet.
Here are the top 4 ways to find h1b sponsor companies for 2019 so that you can file your petition:
- Apply for the Job and Get an Offer
Now it’s time to spruce up your CV, write an incredible application, and apply to all the companies you have on your list.
The best way to get a job is to apply to companies that sponsor h1b visa petitions in past years. However, if you do not find companies in your field of expertise, take a look at the techfetch.com homepage, as well as US job sites like CareerBuilder, Monster, or Dice. You might get lucky on those sites while you browse for employment.
- Look for Boutique Consulting Companies
Another option is to find a job within a boutique consulting company. A word of caution: this is a very difficult route, so you have to be careful when planning to take it!
Unfortunately, there are a lot of new boutique consulting companies out there that tell you they sponsor the H1B visa if you pay for it. This is a big problem because paying for an H1B visa is considered a crime in the United States. If you decide to pay for an H1B visa, this year’s new regulations and laws can really come back to haunt you. You also never know whether what they’re saying is true or not, so we recommend you be very careful.
- Look for Global Consulting Companies
Why only consider boutique consulting companies when you can go for the big ones!
Make a list of all large global consulting companies, like TCS and WIPRO. Then, look at their homepages and find out what kind of positions they currently have to offer. And then… just apply!
If and when you get a job offer, you can negotiate with them about the H1B visa. Always make sure to show your skills and competencies and tell them why they should give you an H1B visa; we recommend finding a niche in your area. There is no guarantee that they will give you the job, but it is definitely worth your time.
- Find an Internship
Another option you to find an internship. If you are already in the United States on an F1 visa and you are planning to stay, try to find an internship (or a co-op) at a company that can sponsor an H1B visa. Then, sure to use step number 1 and number 2 to find and land your internship!
