Hi,

Does anybody know any reputable international headhunters. I live in London, where the economy may be thriving, but I still just want to get out of here - either to North America or Asia-Pacific. Most of the local recruiters I've dealt with have no idea about opportunities overseas...

Salut Eric!

It's depressing to hear about the lack of interest you received from US companies, and am myself wondering when I should cut my losses and look elsewhere. As a UK citizen, I'm not even eligible for the green card lottery - so much for the "special realtionship" huh?

Thanks Jeroen,

When a bodyshop files an H1-B petition, doesn't it require details of the candidate they wish to recruit, or are these only required when the work permit is converted into a visa proper?

In other words, is it still possible for a foreigner to apply for jobs with a company with a sufficient number of H1-B petitions, that have not yet been filled?

It would seem strange to me that a non-bodyshopping US company, with a vital position to fill, which genuinely cannot filled by an American, can only offer the job to a foreigner between 1 April and 26 May.

So does that mean someone who wants to work in the US has no chance of doing so until 1st October 2007?

I suppose the only alternative is the L-1, but one has to first work one year in a company that has a US presence??

I would be interested to know...

Hi, I am a Java developer with 5 years experience and specialise in the finance/banking sector. I intend to relocate either to NYC or California, and will be available for interview in those areas this week.

If you can help, I would like to hear from you. US visa sponsorship required.

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?
