Many Happy Schools Blog readers are asking for info about consulting companies who would apply for H-1B Visa 2012 quota. The H-1B visa quota for year 2011 had been reached on January 2, 2011.
There are so many comments from people who are trying to find contact information of consulting companies who can sponsor their H-1B visa.
Most of them who are trying to find consulting companies are not well informed about the H-1B visa 2012 process.
They assume that posting in the blog and forums will get them a list of consulting companies for their profile and get into US without effort.
H1B Visa 2012 – Sponsoring Consultants
Hi, I have completed a bachelor’s degree in MBC (microbiology, biochemistry and chemistry) and a master’s degree in biotechnology. I did these 2 in India. Now I am doing an MS in environmental and biological science in the US. One of my friends suggested that I can get a job with my M.Sc degree (from India) in the US. Is this true? Is my M.Sc. in biotechnology enough to get me a job in the US? If it is true, can anyone one give me contacts for consultants who can sponsor my H-1B visa. Please reply back to me.
I have a hard time finding consultants for mechanical engineering students. If anyone could help me with this it would be great.
Can you please send me some H-1B sponsors for clinical research associate?
Thanks for all the valuable info. I am working on my degree on biomedical engineering and biomaterials. I would like to get a list of consulting agencies that have biomedical / pharmaceutical clients and would sponsor an H-1B. Any info would be greatly useful. Thanks in advance.
I see there are lots of comments asking about H-1B sponsors so I request everyone to share if they have any list or something. Also, I would like to request HSB to give us info about H-1B sponsors / consultancies both in IT and non IT sectors.
I have completed my master’s in the U.S. and my OPT 90 days of unemployment is going to expire.
Can I get a list of consultants who can sponsor my H-1B visa for 2010?
There are lots of other comments similar to the above.
H-1B 2012 – Sponsors
- The USCIS is not approving or issuing RFEs on H-1B Visa applications when submitted through consulting companies
- The US economy is in recession, there are many unemployed people searching for jobs.
- Not many jobs are available.
- Recently, 7 were arrested due to H-1B fraud.
- Immigration attorneys are saying that it’s very hard to respond to RFEs requested by USCIS.
- Many with approved H-1B visa petitions from last year (2010) through consulting companies are still in India, waiting for their employer to allow them go for stamping.
- The Neufeld Memo requires employers to prove employer-employee relationship. Consulting companies are finding it hard to prove it.
H-1B Visa 2012 – Predictions
It’s really hard to predict total number of application that will be submitted on April 1, 2011. It all depends on how the economy in America improves during the months of January, February and March.
A couple of years back, it was very easy to find consulting companies who will apply for H-1B visa for you, but that’s not the case anymore.
Keep reading the news about unemployment rates in the US and how the USCIS is cracking down on consulting companies that commit fraud.
Considering all above cases, the chances of finding a consultant who is willing to sponsor an H-1B visa 2012 for you will be difficult.
So, do you think you still want to find a consulting company and apply for H-1B visa? You may want to consult with an immigration attorney to find out options you have to stay in legal status.
The above questions were sent a while back, but they will still apply to many readers who are considering to apply for H-1B Visa 2012.
