Do you think that with the new administration it will be easier to get visa sponsorship from big consulting firms? I am currently employed in the US on a F-1 OPT extension, but I will need H1B sponsorship in 2 years. I know that basically no consulting firm sponsors visas (for entry-level / 1 yoe). Has anyone managed to get sponsorship after OPT / heard anything on higher H1B quotas for consulting?

Legal immigration is an afterthought for this administration. Expect the focus to be on undocumented population and any legal reform provisions in the bill to be pawned away as chips as Dems bargain with the other side.

Maybe. New administration doesn’t want to go EO route. Two benefits. 1) It’s not reversible after change of administration. 2) Now is not the time to open legal immigration. US needs to boom first. If they open the gates now there would be backlash. Now about the bill. Anything can happen. The previous administration failed with health care even when they had congress. Also bill may pass but could be severely diluted. Also at the USCIS administration level it depends what’s the objective of new leadership. I know the new appointee is an immigrate but they probably will focus more on the illegal bit first, before they deal with legal bit. Speculating here but I don’t see any change for next 1-2 years.

smart

I agree legal is less the focus but I do think this admin gets how impt H1B is to econ, so I do expect they will want to at least increase that but like M1 said only after econ is back on track outside of covid because to do now would be stupid and cause backlash. Agree in 1-2 years there is a chance this could improve, but w that timeline away there are a lot of unknowns. The faster covid gets controlled and econ goes back to normal, the faster this hopefully gets addressed. Biggest risk might be time between now and 2022 elections w covid having to be done first. You’ll want this issue addressed before the 2022 elections because the assumption is the majority will be lost then. But that puts you in a time crunch of course.

Uh who told you that they don't sponsor? EY does across all positions, PwC and Deloitte do for most, all the MBB's do
