  • Need to apply for H1B this April(Consultancy not filing)

    Hello
    I graduated in May 2012 with MS in Electrical Engineering with specialization in DSP/Communication. After graduating, I couldn't get a job in DSP, so I started working under my Prof. to maintain my status. After this I got a job as a Field Engineer at Qualcomm as a contractor. I am not being offered full time as of now and my consultancy has refused to file my H1-B this year. My OPT expires Nov 2014. So I need to file H1B this year by April. My F1 Visa expires on July 2014 and EAD on Nov 2014. I need certain pointers for following questions:

    1. Can I switch and work for consultancy offering jobs in IT sector and get my H1B filed by them ? Any hindrances in H1B stamping in future as I changed my fields ?
    2. Can I work till August and then go back on F1 status and work on CPT and get a company to file my H1B next year ?
    3. Any consultancies offering to file H1B while working in a Wireless field ?

    I would really like some honest answers as I am in a very dire situation right now.

    Thanks

                1. Yes. It’s okay to change fields as long as you are still qualified for the H-1B by virtue of your degree.
                2. You can go back to school as long as it is before your OPT grace period. If your OPT expires in November 2014, then your grace period should extend until January 2015. If you decide to go back to school, there is no guarantee that you will be approved for CPT. You will need to discuss that with the foreign student advisor.
