Below are 6 best ways to to find H1B Visa Sponsors for upcoming H1B Visa 2022 Season. We will look at each of them in detail.

 Search H1B Visa Sponsors Database

The simplest way to find a H1B sponsor is to look at the website H1BGrader.com that has H1B Visa Sponsors Database. They have taken data from USCIS and and H1B LCA data published by US Department of Labor for public disclosure and nicely put up search options to find sponsors using the below options.

  • You can search for sponsors by company name, state, city.
  • You can browse H1B companies list by  H1B Job Titles, City, etc.
  • You can view H1B Salaries  by company
  • If you know the company, then you can look at the LCAs’ details to see what kind of jobs that they have filed H1Bs in the last 10 years.

Once you have a list, you can prepare a high level list of companies, then you can have that list for getting job at that company and then ultimately get H1B sponsorship.

Find H1B Visa Jobs and get job offer

Probably the most logical way to find a sponsor is to apply for a job at a company that sponsors H1B Visas. You can use few sites like techfetch.com Another way is to search for jobs at  H1B Sponsoring companies (The list created using our H1B Database ) at any US job site like Dice, Monster, CareerBuilder. Once you apply and get an offer, then you can seek them for H1B sponsorship to apply for petition this April.

Internship work – progress to H1B visa

If you are in America and on F1 visa, this is your choice. You need to find an internship or co-op at a company that can sponsor H1B visa. You can use the above two methods to create such list of H1B sponsoring companies.  Always make sure that the company that you pick up internship from is willing to sponsor H1B visa.  You do NOT have to scare them with visa issues, when you are applying for internship. You can give a hint at the final stages so that it does not confuse them and make your life complicated.  Your best bet is to attend Job Fairs, look at your career center to find such opportunities.

Global IT Consulting Companies like TCS, WIPRO, Infosys, Accenture, etc.

Usually, if you would like to search for H1B Visa sponsors from India, this is your best bet. Apply for a role at any of the large global consulting companies like TCS, WIPRO, Infosys, etc. and make sure you negotiate about the H1B Visa sponsorship when you take the offer. Joining these companies, without a commitment from the manager is going to be difficult, because internally there would be a very long queue of employees waiting for H1B Visa sponsorship. It is a little tough, but you just need to position yourself and your skills to get this going.

Boutique IT Consulting Companies in India and USA – Fraud ?

You need to find some specific boutique IT consulting companies in India and USA that can sponsor H1B visa. This is not going to be easy as it involves great risk of ending up in fraud. With all the H1B Visa rules changes in the last few years, it has become very difficult to find small companies with credible background to sponsor H1B visas.  You would need to have personal connections in small companies to evaluate their profile and pick up a role. There are companies that take money from you and claim that they will sponsor H1B Visa for FY 2017. You will need to be very careful as legally you should NOT pay for your H1B visa filing fee or expenses. Avoid H1B fraud companies by picking the right company. This is only possible by talking to close your network of people both in India and USA. You would see lots of people posting contact info on the blog telling they will help you with sponsors and everything, be careful !  DO NOT share your information publicly.  USCIS is very careful screening small size companies, make sure the company you pick has good background by verifying our H1B Visa Database.

Find Jobs at American Universities  – No Quota for H1B Sponsorship

Another great way to work in America on H1B Visa is to pick an academic or research institution like University. The biggest caveat is that you cannot transfer to a regular company with this H1B Visa.  Typically, academic institutions do NOT fall under H1B Visa annual cap restrictions, so they are free to sponsor to anyone as long as they believe that you are right candidate.  It is a great option for anyone on H4 visa or F1 Visa, if you like to work at a school.  You got to be careful here, if you miss the cap start date in April and join a University, then you would need to wait until next year for moving out to a regular company, so be careful !

What are other ways to find H1B Visa Sponsors ?  Any other ideas ?

  9. Its a good effort taken by Red 2bus to help People understand Visa and Immigration in US.

    Rather than attracting students or some aspirants to US jobs and get into trouble and have to look for secondary options, it’s better to have some concrete plan. I do understand that US Job Market is big and have lots of options but none of this really helps anyone solve their immigration/Visa issues. Sooner or later people end up in Immigration/visa dilemma in US and lose all their mental peace.

    It’s time for people to have long term goals that helps them have a balanced social, work and personal life. All the Immigration/Visa are never gonna let people have a American dream that they think of. If someone still wants to pursue the American Dream, better be prepared for a long term struggle or just know that if something goes against you it’s better to get back to your comfort zone ‘home sweet home’.

    Thank you

  12. I had visited US on B1/B2 visa an year back on a short 2 month trip. As I had several years of experience in niche areas, I was approached by companies like IBM, Uber who interviewed me for some positions but because I was visiting for 2 months (May-June), they couldn’t start the H1B process and so we didn’t proceed with interview.

    Now I have an admit in MS Electrical Engineering degree from a university in California which I plan to start in Fall 2018.

    So once I enter US on F-1 visa this coming September, if I can find an employer (which I am sure I can) who is ready to hire me, do you think they will be able to file H1B visa for me under general (65000) quota ?

    What are the risks and issues involved in filling H1b in general cap while on F-1 Visa during 1st year of MS ?

    Assuming I don’t get the visa in lottery, can I then upon graduation file for OPT and later H1B under Masters cap ?
