H1B sponsrship for RF jobs - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hi Kirt,
I am an Indian pasport holder having more than 20 years R&D experience in RF, Antennas and related fields with an emphasis on airborne systems. Eventhough there are requirements in US in the field allmost all of them insist on US citizenship and security clearance etc. Here I want to know whether there are any reliable firms in US who are willing to consider non-US citizens in RF/Antnna/Microwave/Wireless fields. If so please publish the details on this RF cafe Forum.

Thanks in advance.

Greetings Nivar:

I do not know about other companies in the U.S., but just recently I looked into trying to help a qualified foreign engineer apply for a position at the company I work for, and the response I got from management is that work visa quotas have been filled and new visas are not being granted until 2006. I am not at all familiar with what is required by companies wishing to hire foreign employees, but hopefully someone else who reads this post might be able to educate us all.

The company I work for has design and manufacturing plants, as well as sales and field engineering offices worldwide, so I think a lot of the foreign engineers and managers that show up here at our U.S. facilities are actually hired and are stationed elsewhere, and then come to work here on a temporary basis for a year or two.

Hi Kirt,

Regarding the visas, a lot of them are still up for grabs. The USCIS has not announced that the 65k H1 quota has ben filled. If that was the case, they would stop accepting petitions for H1 visas.

I do not know why the companies hesitate to hire foreign RF Engineers. Even I tried a lot, but without any luck.

Hello,

Companies hesitate to hire overseas candidates because of the bureaucracy involved in this process. This bureaucracy requires lot of efforts and company's personnel to be involved, not to mention that it is time consuming. Therefore, a company would prefer to hire locals only.

I am about to get a job offer in Europe now (hopefully this week I will get the final contract), in Europe things aren't much easier. However, they have in some countries Green Card for highly skilled people that makes the process of obtaining the paperwork much quicker and easier. So there is no red tape for companies to hire foreigners.

To be legal, a company hiring an H1B visa holder or sponsoring an H1B must show that they have been unable to find a citizen/permanent resident to fill the job.

I have a friend in the RF world, working in the US on an H1B, that has been looking to change to another company. (Our company has been going through a lot of hard times.) So far, no success for him.

I assume that all of this means that US companies are not having too much trouble finding qualified employees. From my own experience, there does not seem to be a lot of RF work going on in the middle Atlantic that is not defense/homeland security related (requiring security clearance).

Hi Kirt and others,
It is really nice of you to have posted my query on the job board . At least now I am getting some sort of the picture regarding RF jobs in US . Many of the replies are educative regarding the actual situation in US. I am wondering whether all RF jobs are only avaialble in defence/ homeland security servics ?! What about the civilian fields of bluetooth , mobile phone, boadband internet etc? I request those people who read this to post any possible informaion on H1 RF jobs known to them on this forum.
I thank all people who have taken pains to post a reply .

With best of regards,

Nivar

Hi Shafer,
With reference to the above I am yet to get any information from you. Please let me know whether you have gone through my resume. It may not be tailor made for your requirement. But if you are specific we can fine tune it.

With regards,
(Nivar)

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
