Are there lot of Chinese SWE in US?
I came across lot of LinkedIn profiles when searching for people at specific company and they mostly are new grads or interns.
Is it easy for Chinese people to get the US visa?
And if it's not, then what as an Indian I can do to get abroad internship?
Most who become SWE end up in California because they pay SWE much, much higher on the west coast.
Getting an H1B is the same for everyone. Getting a student F1 visa is much easier by comparison, but our universities are much more expensive so unless you get scholarships, typically only wealthy foreigners end up in our universities.
Getting an internship abroad here in the USA is not impossible but you have to be seriously impressive. It’s very rare, so you’d be competing against the top 1% of foreign applicants for those positions.
Getting a green card is MUCH harder for India compared to China. India has something like a 10-20 year wait if your company sponsors your green card, where China is about a 2-3 year wait. It’s much faster, however, if you marry a US citizen.
Hope this helped.
