However, during the last 10 years, when H1B Visa was available, the job market was grim. When the job market finally recovered, H1B Visa depleted so quickly that in some years the goverment had to run a lottery to decide who would get it.

However, two great news and one smart technology have changed the picture.

On May 3, US Citizenship and Immigration Services released updated cap count for FY2011 H-1B Visa filings. As of April 27, only 23,400 petitions had been filed against the 85,000 H1B Visa cap. The situation has never been better since February 2004 when USCIS announced it had received enough applications to reach H1B cap.

On May 7, Department of Labor announced that employers added 290,000 new jobs in April, the largest gain since March 2006. Wow, the United States has now added jobs for four consecutive months.
