According to a USCIS Update: “USCIS has received approximately 45,500 H-1B petitions counting toward the Congressionally-mandated 65,000 cap. The agency continues to accept petitions subject to the general cap.”
Not much has changed since the last update. H-1B visas are a great option for hiring eligible, qualified foreign-nationals. If you are a recent college grad with a possible H-1B caliber job offer for which you qualify, your employer (or prospective employer) should “move it or lose it” as these numbers may not be available for much longer.
