9 Reasons Why It’s Really Hard to Find a Job on H4 EAD

H4 EAD Rule came into effect in May 2015 and spouses on H4 EAD realize that finding a full-time job is a lot harder than they thought. In general, finding a full-time job is a challenging and frustrating process. With H4 EAD, you have several factors working against you, and you have to overcome those factors to find a job.

Not Finding a Job on H4 EAD?

Summary of the Video:

I met Nirmala while Madhu, Rishi and I were going for our evening walk. She stopped by to ask if I was “Raghu from Happy Schools.” She had attended on of my H4 EAD Webinars, and she recognized me from that, and she happens to live half a mile from our home. Sweet Deal right?

After I had spoken to her, I thought why not do a blog post on difficulties of finding a full-time job as an H4 Visa holder.

9 Reasons for Not Landing a Job

  1. Career Gap
  2. Skills Set
  3. Competition
  4. Job Search Mindset
  5. Job Search Skills
  6. Resume
  7. Online Branding
  8. Networking
  9. Lack of a Plan


  1. Have a job search plan
  2. Fix your Resume (not by fake experience)
  3. Fix your Career Gap (study in college)
  4. Take Job Search Seriously (yes, finding a job is a full-time job)
  5. Improve your Job Search Skills (if you haven’t studied in the US, and new to job search, it will be a challenge, it can take 4 to 6 months to find one)
