1. How many companies are sponsoring H1B
I know people studying the USA, after graduation, would typically want to find a job here. The way to do that is to try and apply only to companies that have a strong track record of sponsoring H1B visas.
So I am getting interested in researching how many companies in the States here are sponsoring H1B visa jobs or have had sponsored H1B jobs in the past. Here are some data I collected that hopefully would be useful for folks applying for jobs in the USA.
From the Labor Department H-1B Program Data
, the latest LCA database contains a bit over 168,000 companies. But another H1B job search site, it says there are over half a million visa sponsors. So I am guessing the companies are in the hundred thousand range. If I find more accurate data, I will post again here.
2. How to find H1B visa sponsors in a zip code, occupation or state
A good site to search H1B jobs is Indeed.com
. For example, you can put in "h1b" and just do a search, it is that simple, you will get thousands of results
. Lot of companies either provide H1B new visa application, or they would do H1B transfers.
