Please use following links to search potential job opportunities and pitch employers directly. Our new visa job database is now updated daily with full copies of original petitions. However, we still maintain the legacy system which is updated once every quarter with case summary only. Some cases might not appear on both systems due to various reasons. 

U.S. employers are always looking for skilled workers, even in holiday seasons. Please polish your resume and update your career profiles regularly
