H1B Visa FY 2013 Cap was reached and employers and now falling back to Plan B.

Even the students who are left in limbo with expiring OPT are looking for Plan B and Plan C.

Here is question that I saw in Quora

H1B visas have run out for the fiscal 2013 year; this means that the pool of countries US companies can hire from is now much smaller (Canada and Australia?)

How will this change hiring (e.g. will it increase employability of Canadian/Australian tech workers?)

While reading the responses, I saw this video and you should watch this 4 minutes video.

  1. Your environment to a high extend fashions your way of thinking and actions which eventually leads to your success in life and US provides that environmet.

  2. True. In past, lot of brilliant Indian engineers from IITs ( from 1970 to late 1990s) came to USA as students and stayed here. Lot of indian doctors from reputed colleges like AIIMS came to US. Things are a bit difficult now but for every talented student, USA always will be a place to make a career no matter what the economy is.

  3. totally agree.. America has the infrastructure, whereas the brains come from India and China
