H1B hiring in Verizon?

I have been trying to get into Verizon for a while now, but everytime I get same response that my qualifications are not a match even though I have every qualification they are looking for. I am thinking this could be due to my H1b visa status. Do you guys know how to get into Verizon on a H1B? I am looking opportunities in network design/planning/optimization.

    I got three interview calls from different departments in Verizon and none of them were sponsoring H1B. They are hiring lot of contractors though.

    They aren’t hiring H1Bs right now. I heard it directly from HR when they asked me to call all the prospective candidates from colleges. For non/entry level they might make an exception if your skill set is desirable enough but typically we just bring contractors in 99% of the time over hiring.

    Same here .. I have applied multiple times for RF engineering 2 and 3 positions .. every time they say I don’t meet the requirements.. I not only meet all the requirements , I exceed them lol. I am in telecom for more than a decade now. I am applying for the Walnut Creek CA positions . Then I heard that Verizon only takes software engineering positions in H1B .. not RF engineering. Smh !!
