H-1B CAP COUNT UPDATE FOR FY-2010 (5/18/09)

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.
