I posted a topic here several weeks ago about changing staffing company(^^). My current staffing company has lack of resource so I always get a project through another staffing compay(primary vendor). And I think it ends up with poor salary for me.
I found several staffing company that looks good. They are wide spread to whole USA and open rate to consultant. I like that. So I contacted one of companies. The recruitor of the company actually knew me since I had got an interview throuth the company in the past. When I sent an e-mail to him saying I want to change my company he replied immediatedly. Obviously, the recruitor still remember me and he wants to work with me. What he replied is he might help me if I am available with W2 employee or he can still work with my staffing company.
So I sent back the e-mail again saying I can be w2 employee to his company if I transfer my H1. And then the communication stopped.
I am confusing now. I thought w2 employee means just directly hired to his company. Now I start thinking that it means if I am the green card holder. Am I wrong?
Do you guys think that the large staffing company that has a lot of openning in dice.com and national wide office in USA don't want to H1 visa holder? Do they work with H1 visa holder?
If so I would like to prepare my recent resume and try to contact again with another company mentioning I need to transfer H1 visa. Is this approch all right?
I thought "W2" and "1099" are IRS designations. I didn't think that there was a relationship with H-1 visas. Maybe there was simply a "no sponsorship" requirement that wasn't mentioned. Please correct me if I am wrong here.
As a side note, I always found it interesting that there are actually rude people in hiring positions. Seriously, how does a person develop a professional network, if "cutting off communications" is an option? How does this person know that another position, with sponsorship, will not come up later?
