Hi,

I have a longterm plan to relocate to the US. I will be on vacation in NYC and California (San Francisco, bay area, LA) next week, and would be interested in speaking to any recruiters who deal with foreign nationals who do not possess a work visa.

I know the employment situation is not great at the moment, and the H1B quota for this year has been met, but this is a longterm plan for me - informal advice would be fine.

Any ideas?

Most recruiters I've used I've never met in person. Seems like being local or overseas wouldn't make much different from the standpoint of talking with them.

Hi Robert !

I know the employment situation is not great at the moment, and the H1B quota for this year has been met, but this is a longterm plan for me - informal advice would be fine.

Of course as limit date is 1st october quota will be met earlier, but june is still far from october, so which sources makes you state it is already met ?

Best regards ?

The initial post states "recruiters who deal with foreign nationals who do not possess a work visa", could you and other ranchers elaborate by providing coordinates of such contacts ?

Best regards.

If you are not Indian, then you're out of luck. There are many Indian consulting/contracting companies who bring Indian IT workers to the U.S. on H-1B visa. Usually, they have offices both in the U.S. and India, and only accept Indian applicants.

In NYC now, many Investment Banks are desperately seeking good Java developers. If you're good enough: have 7+ years of experience, solid educational background, and so on. They will sponsor H-1B visa and Green Card.

Refering to your previous post, with which I totally agree, as accordingly many valuable non-indian good Java developers are desperately seeking sponsorship (hopelessly in present context), could you elaborate by stating which ones ? This could offer a chance to make both needs match for mutual profit.

Best regards.

As far as I know, many Wall Street financial firms (such as Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Lehman Brothers, UBS, JP Morgan Chase, and so on) sponsor H-1B and Green Card for qualified alien workers.

Yes. It's true that in NYC there are "many" Java developers available, but there is a shortage of "good" Java developers.

But, to get a job with one of those companies, you have to be in the U.S. (for interview).

Robert Cooksley mentioned he will be staying in the U.S. for a while and look for a job.

Unless you're Indian, it will be extremely difficult to get a job in the U.S. without staying in the U.S.

I don't know any who deal with foreign nationals who don't possess a work visa. However, of the 60 some recruiters I've worked with, I've personally met maybe 6-7 of them. I don't give out my personal address book, but given the numbers I posted, odds are that any recriuter you speak with would be fine never actually meeting.

Many thanks for the answer, I really needed it.
