keeping track of the H-1Bs
May 14, 2010 § Leave a comment
As of last week, USCIS had received approximately 18,000 H-1B petitions counting toward the 65,000 cap.
Moreover, about 7600 petitions have been filed for “advanced degree exemption” applicants. This category maxes out at 20,000.
There are still a fair amount of H-1Bs available.
But, every week, the petitions increase.
We are now in mid-May and this season, employers contact us to obtain our legal assistance, in sponsoring H-1B applicants who have just graduated from college.
H-1Bs are foreign workers in specialty occupations, often computer specialists and other fields which require a baccalaureate or advanced degree.
