Hi, I am currently on H4 visa. As the H1 B quota for this year is already full. I would like to know when do IT companies in USA start interviewing people for next year H1 B visas i.e people who can join in October 2013. Do they start only by January or February of that year or would they be ready to do it even now. Thanks,
You can find opportunites in cap exempt category like Universities and research instititues. Coming to H1B visa FY 2014, there is nothing set on stone when companies interview. It is an ongoing process for big companies, for small IT shops they could start interviewing from December 2012 or Jan 2013.
