Hi Everybody,
I am living in US. Currently on H4 visa. I completed Java Programmer exam (1z0-851) with 96%. I am now preparing for Web Component Developer exam (1z0-899). After completing the exam, I want to look for a job. Is it difficult to find an employer who sponsers H1 visa? I don't have any previous work experience.

Jana,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

The intent of the H1B visa program was to fill jobs that were hard to fill by people already in the United States. While one can debate how much it actually works that way, why should a company go through the trouble of dealing with visa if they can get someone with the same skill level who doesn't need a visa? I can't imagine it being easy to get one as an entry level developer.

Thank you Jeanne,
How about volunteering to work as a Programmer/Developer from home. That way I could gain some experience. What are my chances?

There are many open source projects that need help. That is definitely something you could do from home. You might be able to find a non-profit in your area that needs help with something. That you could do from home too.
