How common is it to get an employment in the US if you’re not a citizen / hold no residency out here - would it help if you promise a hiring company that you’ll pay for H1B application process if they help hire you?

H1B is a lottery right? There’s no guarantee. In general US employers are not happy to sponsor, especially if someone isn’t already in the country.

It is against law for employee to pay for his own H1B application. If any employer asks for money it is fraud which need to be reported to USCIS.

Indeed - think it’s a lottery; roughly third chance to get it. But why could employer not pay for it for example and try to take chances. But I guess it’s just a hassle for employers although cost of application processing might not be as high

Plenty of talent locally
