H1B sponsrship for RF jobs - RF Cafe Forums
Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.

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.

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.

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

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,
