H-1B Professionals - Still Available


   Foreign students have the determination to obtain a bachelor's degree or higher, the perseverance to look for employment in a tough economy, and are willing to do the hard work needed to start their professional careers.  Unfortunately, many have not found a company that needs their skills now, much less petition a foreigner for an H-1B visa.  If the foreign student is in the United States, time in F-1 status may be running out.  Without a change of status, she will need to return to her home country.
   Along comes the H-1B visa, which is available to foreign professionals who wish to start their own companies, even if initially only on a part-time basis.  There are only 65,000 of these available and normally they run out immediately.  However, as of October 25, 2009, only 52,800 petitions had been filed.  See CIS web site.  Word to the wise:  if you are a foreign student, run -- don't walk -- to your nearest immigration attorney.
