I am a Senior People (HR) Business Partner working in NYC under an H-1B visa (9 years of experience). I am looking for something new, but I am finding it extremely difficult to find a company who would support an H-1B Change of Employer (COE). I either get declined immediately as part of the application process or get told the company does not support visa sponsorship for non-tech roles. Any tips, tricks, or great companies where an H-1B COE would not be an issue?

Only advice is to look for large international companies like banks and consultancies who often move their employees around the world. Banks in particular normally aren't worried about sponsorship in a place like NYC. Just the cost of doing business with the right talent.

Agreed. I work for a ~300 person company and we don't have the bandwidth for new H1B's or transfers compared to our publicly traded competitors who have entire departments who specialize in visas.

I would look at jobs within Aon. If they have a need, they have supported this in the past.

Does NYC have an International Institute?

Isn't changing companies equivalent to obtaining a new visa? If so, wouldn't any employer that sponsors H-1B visas be a viable option? Sorry if I'm mistaken.

The Change of Employer petition is required, but it’s much easier than a brand new H-1B application as you bypass the lottery. I’ve already been selected in the lottery which is typically the most challenging part. The issue I’ve been faced with is finding companies that would “sponsor” the H-1B Change of Employer visa for me to move. Struggling to find a way around it.
