International Students - International Employee Friendly Employers
GoinGlobal is an online tool accessible through Handshake with an H-1B Info section where international students can search for US employers who have sponsored for H-1B employment visas. Information is gathered from the US Department of Labor and reflects data from the previous fiscal year (October – September). In addition, GoinGlobal has these additional helpful tools:
- Country guides for those searching for employment overseas
- USA/Canada city guides for those searching for employment in the US
- Job and Internship search tool
Sign in to Handshake to explore GoinGlobal and see how it can be a valuable resource to your job and internship search in the US.
myvisajobs.com is another resource to see which employers have petitioned for H-1Bs in the past. This site also shows employers who have sponsored for Permanent Residency (Green Card).
US Department of Labor H-1B Data
The US Department of Labor Office of Foreign Labor Certification generates annual reports on labor certifications, which is a core part of the H-1B and Permanent Residency application process. Report examples include top occupations for H-1B by state, top 10 employers sponsoring for H-1B and top occupation areas for permanent residency applications.
H-1B Workshops at the Berkeley International Office
The Berkeley International Office offers the H-1B Employment Visa Workshop throughout the academic year. Take the initiative to learn as much as you can about the H-1B visa and other employment visa options through this workshop so you are familiar with the process and can communicate that to a potential employer.
