Is it true that US jobs on H1B have suddenly been reduced? All they want are candidates who are US citizens, green card holders or with an EAD permit.

Other people have sufficiently outlined some of the reasons that H1-B jobs may be a bit more difficult to find. Of course, those reasons are geared toward the financial burden that has been placed on employers and that is likely the reason that you aren’t getting a positive response right now. This change in the work environment can be difficult for employers and H1-B visa holders alike.

The way I see it, you have a few options.

  • You could simple “wait out” the process and hope that you are able to find employers willing to still work with H1-B visa holders. Some sectors may be more willing than others to work through the new changes that impact cost.
  • You could look into applying for a Green Card.
  • Consider obtaining the EAD permit.
  • You could consider the process to gaining U.S. citizenship.

Of course, none of these solutions are as simple as just closing your eyes and picking one. But, as it stands you can either choose to wait until you find an employer that will accept the H1-B or you can focus on obtaining the status that most employers are looking for right now.

Either way, it would be best to consult an immigration attorney. They can counsel you on which direction you should go based on certain criteria and your credentials.
