H1B visa denied, 4 months left on OPT. Will companies still hire me?
I just heard back last week that my H1B visa has been denied on the grounds that it wasn't a "speciality occupation". This was a shocker since I work for a legitimate big data consulting firm (and work on Spark, Hadoop, Kafka). I have 4 months left on my OPT, and was wondering if the top tech companies would be willing to hire me and transfer me to a remote office (say Canada or UK) given that I only have 4 months of OPT left. My hope is that they would try to bring me back to the US eventually.
Thanks for all your help folks!
