Which companies could sponsor H1b Visa for FTE roles ? The issue I am seeing, due to uncertainty and long wait time, it does not seem working.

    I think the issue with you is that you want to move from L1 to H1B. The best way to do that is to do it at your current company.

    The reason why they are not hiring you is that you can't join till Oct assuming you get picked in April. That is too long wait and too much uncertainty over visa.

    Another alternative for you is to time the move. But that would be hard.

    • Right, Or..
      - Join a mid size startup with L1 and keep trying for the h1b in the following years.
      - Join a good consulting firm (not the big ones) and they will keep applying of visa for the following years.

      You can't change employers on L1. So you will have to stick to your current employer or go back, apply for a new L1 for the new company and come back.

      Yes, currently I am on l1b Visa. Hiring managers,recruiters from almost every companies reached out to me, but no one is ready to sponsor due to uncertainty and long wait. Everyone said to reachout to them once I will have h1b Visa :)
