  • H1 with Non IT MS

    Hi Guys,

    I really appreciate you for maintaining such a great forum.

    I graduated with MS physics in 2012, joined in small time Desi IT consultancy. My OPT started in August 2012.Since then I have been in IT field.This consultancy
    projected me as 7 years experienced guy.(I also agreed with that)

    Recently I started working with reputed Indian IT company as contractor(My employer is still small time Desi consultancy). Client gave good feedback on me and
    now this reputed Indian IT company wants me to hire as full time employee.

    My questions are

    1). Should I reveal them that I am on OPT?(My opt expires in Jan 2015)

    2). What are the possible consequences once they know that I am on OPT?

    3). Am I eligible to apply H1 in advanced degree quota?(I have MS in physics, but applying H1 for IT field job. )

      My educational background involve I have done 2 bachelor [1]Bachelor in arts[2]Bachelor in law

      My future aim is to settle down in usa ----I find education is only mode by which i can get a job in usa and thereby earn salary there. I am from a middle class family and taking a huge loan and coming to usa KEEPING IN MIND THAT I WILL REPAY IT when i get job. After searching i found out that i have 2 option

      First to do mba from there [which provide me 1 year of opt and 1 chance to apply for h1b]


      but after some research i found that if i do stem degrees [masters in computer information system] i get 29 month extension and 3 chance of h1b process and i also came to know that most of h1b sponsors are hiring graduate students from IT field especially computers.and it is easy to find a job in IT field comparatively if you done an mba from a university not in top 20 as i cant afford those due to high tuition.Another reason is that as we know that h1b is a lottery so if i do mba and donot come into a lottery than icant work in usa and if i couldnot work in usa i cant pay my loan expenses by working in india and this education dream will be a curse and i donot want to go under that situation But if i choose an masters in computers even if i couldnot get a job in 1 year , i can work in opt and apply for next year due to stem extension.but my case has a demerit i have no IT experience some one told consultancy will solve your issue and make your resume look nice.please guide me showing real picure of usa??as this step will be turning point in my life?How the IT scene in usa ???Does stem student after graduation find a job?As my bachelor is not in computers and simple arts does it have any effect in visa or h1b or when employer looks at resume?Guide as i don't know IT scenario there?Bottom line is i donot want that situation in which i haven given a degree and said go back to india as earning in usa and settling down here is my priority and that is why i am taking education a a medium pathroute to usa in which i found IT field a safe step............................Guide

      PLEASE SAY IT FIELD REAL PICTURE IN REGARD TO JOB OPPORTUNITIES, AND HI1B for those who have completed their masters in usa?does fresher tag is a setback or consultancy will feel good
