We have just obtained from USCIS 10 year H-1B Visa approval and denial history(2009-2019) and published on our website. This is the first time U.S. government releases such data.

The database includes nearly 510,000 approvals and 41,000 denial for over 170,000 employers. While we are still analyzing and integrating the data, we believe it is very important for our users to have access to the data right away.

Many employers, including some top visa sponsors had large numbers of H-1B visa denials in recent years. Please use following link to search the data now!

We are working hard on developing more reports and integrate the data into employer profiles. We also will update the data at least once every quarter.  

When is the best time to begin visa job search?

In the US, recruiting and hiring is year round. However, the busiest hiring season is the autumn(Labor Day through Thanksgiving). Job seekers who make contact right at the start of these cycles have the best chance of being hired! 

In September, decision makers are back from summer vacation. Hiring managers push for an increase to take advantage of remaining budget for the year. If they don't hire before January, they might lose the allocated funds for new employees. CEOs also try to reduce operating profits by incurring search fees towards the end of each year, to avoid paying taxes! 

The slowest season for hiring and job hunting are the holiday season(Thanksgiving through New Year's) and summertime (Memorial Day through mid-August). That's why the employers want to get new recruits in before December. 

The U.S. unemployment rate dropped to 5.3% in July 2015(about 3.4% for computer professionals, 2.3% for engineers and 2.4% for business and management occupations). Now is the best time to start job search, take actions now!
  1. Conduct a self-assessment to determine skills and talents, then update your career profile.
  2. Use real time H1B database to conduct market research, and identify employers in need of your skills and talents.
  3. Craft an industry-specific resume and cover letter, and upload them to job candidate database.
  4. Utilize Resume Blasting Service and Smart Apply Service to pitch large number of employers.
  5. Negotiate and evaluate job offers by researching how similar H1B jobs are paid.

Not all jobs are created equal!
