H1B hiring in Verizon?

Aug 5, 2019 13 Comments

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.

    Anyone works for Verizon Product Management division? My friend recently got interview invitation for PM internship. She's an MBA.

    What type of questions she can expect? They have asked her to fly-in at NJ location.

    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 !!
