I am looking for full time big data positions who can provide visa sponsorship. I did MS in CS and currently on STEM OPT now and next year will be my last chance for h1 lottery.

The problem is I am getting calls from recruiters but they are backing off because of my current visa status.

Any referrals or suggestions where to look for the companies who can provide sponsorship?

2yoe as big data developer

  • Try places like Austin, Seattle, NY and Bay Area. These places have lots of H1B sponsors. In other places you will see that H1B hiring has decreased significantly.

      I would like to add Chicago to that list. There is some good tech scene there.
      Boulder Colorado is gaining, but not there yet.
      Phoenix AZ is also has good tech scene.

    I suggest planning your move to some other country as a backup plan.
    On blind, many people are moving to Canada and Europe.

    Also, share your location and TC.

      Atlanta is a tough location.
      Which university did you graduate from?
      Just asking because it may matter for some companies and for some it won't.

    I would suggest that you look at some of the banks in North Carolina. A ton of them are doing big data stuff and can probably sponsor your visa.
