Best time to land in USA for H1-B job seekers

This has been asked by one of my fellow ranchers; I just thought of posting the question as a new thread in this forum to seek opinion from other ranchers - what is the best time to land in the USA for getting a job assignment without too much delay? This is more of a concern this year for a large number of new H1-B workers who have gone through the lottery process for this year's quota and who will be ready to start work around October-November '07. Is it possible that due to the large number of highly skilled resources available in the job market around this time that there will be a crunch in job market, and it will affect the whole IT job market in the United States? Is Dec-Jan a better time to start work?

IT job market is more dependent on demand and supply equation and less on h1b candidates . If you know what you are doing then anytime is a good time to get the job .

I have seen that IT spending is very less in the last quarter of the year. US companies fire people in the last quarter of the year and rehire them again the first quarter of the next fiscal year.

However an expert of the subject matter doesn't have to be bothered about these things. He can manage to hang in there during slumps and could also crack a good job during slack periods.
Now I am super curious what sports would be like if we allowed drugs and tiny ads.
