Hello all

I am curently procurring my MSc IT in UK and have a bachelors in computers with 2 years experience in Java. I am interested in going to US on H1. I am offered H1 by some meditech staffin (mtssus.com)in NJ.They are asking for 2500 $ for processing and after I get a visa and land in US i require to pay 6000 $ up front. And after that they will not charge me anything from my salary as other consultants do. They hav agreed to protect my status if in case i am late in gettin a job.

Frankly speking I just started the inquiry and stuff. If you people can guide me through I would be thankful to you ranchers

thanks
kru

Isn't the point of a job that you get money for doing it, not that you need to spend any? Sounds fishy to me.

I don't see anything fishy about this. The law requires that a candidate be on the payroll earning a wage fromt the day he enters the country. The hiring manager does not want to hire him site unseen. So the candidate must pay his salary in front money for the time it usually takes to find the candidate a job in the US.

It really cuts into an employers profit to move a person around the globe and put the person up in decent lodging while the consulting company finds a suitable hook-up.

Hello all

thanks for your replies. The thing is that they told me that they will help me out to find the job and even if i dont find a job they would protect my status anyhow. They are willin g to market the CV for atleast six months. But I am concerned right now is getting a visa because i came to know that name of the company also matters when it comes to getting a visa. So could you please guide me in that respect please.

And tell me about the deal they are offering. All suggestions would be helpful to me.

Thanks
