I am an IC right now and I do a lot of J2EE work. I've worked with a lot of Indian programmers and I know a lot of good H1 candidates looking for work here in the States. If I want to expand from an IC to a real consulting company and bring on some of these guys, how do I get permission from the government to sponsor them? Where do I even begin to look to research this?

Thanks,
Scott

Just six months back you talked about being replaced by cheap Wipro labor and now you are thinking of bringing them onboard??

Also...I am not talking about Wipro specifically. I am talking about H1 candidates. Most of Wipro's people working in the US aren't H1B status - or else they wouldn't be working for Wipro much longer

Hi Scott !

Also...I am not talking about Wipro specifically. I am talking about H1 candidates. Most of Wipro's people working in the US aren't H1B status - or else they wouldn't be working for Wipro much longer

Do you mean they are tied to Wipro through kind of non-transferable visa like L1, while with H1B transfer possibility they would have quitted quickly because (possibly) Wipro sucks ?

No offense to anyone, just wondering because I have not faintest idea of implicit meaning of your remark for lack of knowledge about this matter.

Best regards.

Yes...that's pretty much what I mean. I've never heard any Wipro employees praising their company and I think that given the chance the Wipro people that I had worked with would have gladly jumped ship if it weren't for the Visa issues.

For H1 candidate ,simple way is to contact immigration attorny .
Process generally starts with Labor approval ( either fax or on line) followed by I 129 submission to USCIS .

Attorny guides you in more appropriate manner , actully you really dont need , they will send you all templates and work involved is mostly clerical but its good to start with attorny .

Regarding candidates you have option to contact some Indian firm who can do recruitment for you . OR you can directly post requirement on Web sites lime Monster India , Naukri etc . and find out a person who understand specic countries eductaion system and some basic knowledge about industry in foreign country other then technology .
