  • H1B while moving from Non-Profit to For-Profit organization?

    I am currently working on H1B for a non-profit institute. I am hoping to join a profit institute soon. I am afraid that the cap quota will be full before I will apply. Is there any solution to this situation?

    No solution. Skip h1 this year.. Go back to class before the date opt expires; bcom a student again!. They r colleges that offer cpt on first semester. Make sure u choose major similar to job. Which state r u going to work in?

      Why can't you file your H1 from a non-profit?

        People who receive H-1 status based on employment with non-profits, institutions of higher education, and nonprofit research organizations are NOT counted against the cap. Therefore, if you currently work for a non-profit AND have not worked for a "for-profit" company, you most likely will have to be counted against the cap if you switch to for-profit company. However, if you can stay and work at the non-profit and also have the "for-profit" company sponsor you, there is a way to do this without the need for an H-1 number because there is an exception in the law related to concurrent employment.

          Similarly, if any of you do not get selected for the lottery (if there is one), or your H-1 is rejected or denied, find a university, non-profit, or non-profit research organization willing to sponsor you for the H-1 because you do not need to be counted against the cap to work at one of those.

            I am desperately willing to move to a profit organization, n I do not have a job offer from any non profit organizations yet. I am trying to move to Florida.
