Filing H-1B cap petitions for F-1 students is challenging if you are doing it for the first time.

Employers need to consider a number of factors, such as:

1. Is the F-1 OPT or STEM extension expiring before H-1B filing?
2. Is the applicant traveling after H-1B filing?
3. Is the degree suitable for the position? If No, what next?
4. Is it worth spending $1410 for Premium Processing?

F-1 students are often unsure of Do’s and Don’ts to maintain lawful status in the U.S. when the H-1B cap petition is pending. 

That’s why we are offering a “Free Webinar” providing ultimate knowledge to H-1B employers and foreign nationals on the challenges during F-1 Visa OPT to H-1B Cap filing.
