    This has been true for a few years. It’s my understanding that they won’t give you an offer if you require an h1b petition to start employment.

    But if you can start employment under some different status (OPT, TN status, etc) then they’ll hire you. And they’ll apply for an h1b for you while you’re an employee.

      Not true.

      I am on OPT, interviewing with Facebook right now.

      Was also contacted to interview 3 months back for another role, but I didn't like the role so stopped the process after the first HR call.

    Cleared fb phone interview and was asked to give availability for on-site. Got a call from recruiter the next day saying I have 23 months on STEM OPT, and I cannot interview with them.
    So they sponsor, but your current visa status should have at least 2 years remaining.

    Not true. My friend got an offer and they are spnsoring his H1. But I think they have a policy that you should have atleast 24 months of Stem extension remaining

    Totally Fake news. I just got offered by FB and I know 3 of my buddies who will all start work on H1B receipt. No questions asked by HR or hiring manager. We all are on H1B with Amazon and Microsoft.

    There’s a distinction, transferring h1b vs applying for h1b ... two very different immigration procedures

      Yes but the process and chance of success are extremely different, I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re only doing transfers and renewals right now

    I did good in my interviews. Was waiting for the offer but when I told the recruiter that I am on f1 and only have one H1B attempt remaining, the recruiter gave the bad news next day..
