HSB022: A BOLD Statement About H4 Visa Holders. True or False?

Career options for H4 Visa spouses’s are not straight forward. There are bunch of milestones a family on H1B Visa with H4 spouse (husband or wife)  have to meet to get work authorization. It can be OPT, H-1B or EAD.

As you all know, I have 4 different ways through which, I get to hear from H4 visa spouses who want to work here in the U.S. ( Email, Blog Comments, Consulting and H4 Career Guide Course). I started noticing a pattern among H4 Visa spouses. But, I wanted to confirm if there is any truth behind that. So, I’m recorded this podcast to ask you and wider audience to see if there’s any truth behind my observation.

Listen to the Show:
