These are questions I've asked before but I wanted to ask a more resourceful person like you.
If you received a resume from a developer from India, what will be your response towards the submission?
I look at the skills and experience first, before considering where the person is currently located. We have gotten Visas before for people, so it is not my primary concern.
If the candidate passes the normal bar for being considered further, then I need to consider where they are currently located, and specifically:
The timing for an H1B visa is very unfortunate. Visas are awarded in April each year, but you don't actually full get the visa until October. This means that if we're talking to someone in May of 2015, they have missed the visa cutoff date, and they would not be able to come work with in the US until October of 2016, more than a year in the future. This is usually not practical or sustainable for us. Even if I am talking to someone in February, and we get the visa in April, it is still a long time until October.
Additionally, the educational requirements are that someone must have the equivalent of a 4 year degree in a relevant field in order to qualify for an H1B visa. So I will also look at that.
I hope that helps.
Dear Chad Pytel, Thanks for this detailed answer, Now i am very clear about the US Visa and Company policy towards the Applications,
I guess there is hope for everyone.
