Using Myvisajobs.com to Find Employers Who Sponsor Visas

Myvisajobs.com is an online portal for international students seeking employment opportunities in the United States. It provides an annual H1B Visa Report that indicates which employers sponsored employees, for what positions, and in which cities and states. “Myvisajobs.com was created by immigrants to address the needs of foreign workers.” 

Myvisajobs.com explains that “most American employers do not want to sponsor working visas, so most of your time will be wasted if you use the same job board as American candidates.  

Myvisajobs.com helps the foreign workers to concentrate their job searches on the employers who have sponsored H-1B visa in recent years.”

According to Myvisajobs.com “…most new job openings in the United States are never advertised. Only 12-14% of external hires in the United States come from job boards. So you should use a proactive strategy to pitch the employers.”
