After 3 rounds of interviews (total 4 inc recruiter screen) over the past 5 odd weeks, just got told by a T2 consulting firm that they doesn’t sponsor H1B visas which is frustrating because they were aware of my visa situation right at the start. Sigh 😢. Understand it happens but frustrating nonetheless given the time and effort invested.

Tell me you interviewed with Deloitte without telling me you interviewed with Deloitte.

M1, it is your employer.

Name the firm so other H1B holders don’t waste their time

Which firm was this?

Rather not say. I suppose positive is that the rec said all the partners liked me and I was offer tracking and keep in touch incase my situation changes..

Yeah OP. Understand your frustration! I personally feel that H1B candidates are treated poorly during recruiting and job search and then during employment H1B employees are looked down upon for promotions or salary raises. With all talks about diversity, inclusion ,etc... H1b employees are not inclusive. Folks are more focussed on undocumented migrants than documented ones. Modern day slavery i guess 😝 with some exceptions who have done well with some luck!

M2. No feelings hurt. You mentioned that no one really understand the gravity of the situation for H1-Bs. I think you might wanna be specific and say H1-Bs from countries where the option to get a green card through the diversity lottery are extremely limited or basically impossible. That's a fact that many people forget to say. For example if someone comes to the US from Taiwan or Belgium on an H1-B, they're more likely to win the diversity lottery over the span of 5 years compared to H1-B holders from India or China. I know that employers do take advantage of H1-B holders knowing full well they can't easily change companies. Once they get a green card, then the employee has the power to leave and look elsewhere.

Why wasn’t this confirmed during the recruiter screen?

No clue! I was very explicit that I’m on H1B presently and the Rec confirmed that the firm has sponsored H1B in the past. Guess they just did a U turn

Name and shame. You have nothing to lose
