You can convert from a B1/B2 to a work visa, such as the H1B. However, you have to make sure that you qualify for it.
Essentially, your employer will have to ensure that the position falls under one of the qualifying categories and that you meet the basic criteria. To qualify you must have at least one of the following criteria:
- A Bachelor’s or Master’s degree
- 12 years of work experience
- A combination of work experience and education
Remember, there is a cap for this type of visa so there are other limitations outside of your control.
