Temporary Work Visa

If you plan to reside in the U.S. on either a temporary or a permanent basis after graduation, you may be eligible for a temporary work visa.

If your job requires that you possess a college degree, you may be eligible to change your status from OPT to H-1B temporary working status. It is best to begin your H-1B process as soon as possible. If your Employment Authorization Document I-766 expires before your application for a change of status is approved, you are probably eligible to continue working until October 1 under the “cap-gap”.

Know Their Job Well And Perform It Flawlessly

“Don’t do the mistake we did and try to save few bucks going with nonprofessionals and sole practitioners! It will end up not only costing you much more in the long run, but also putting your status in jeopardy which can have a priceless impact. It is one of the most important steps in your life.”

- Sgt. Danny Lightfoot, Los Angeles, California

The immigration law refers to H-1B workers, not as professionals, but as workers in “specialty occupations”. Specialty occupations include almost any job for which a university diploma, or its equivalent, in a specific field is a prerequisite for employment. Accountants, architects, attorneys, many types of business managers, computer programmers, dentists, engineers, physicians, systems analysts, and various types of business, medical and scientific workers may qualify for H-1B status. However, if you graduated with a B.A. in the humanities or social sciences, you may have difficulty in finding employment which will qualify you for H- 1B status.
