How to Maximize the Chances of a Job with Work Visa Sponsorship
February 18, 2015 9:05 PM   Subscribe

I have a friend who's been looking for a job in mental health for over two years. She can get interviews but employers balk at having to sponsor her for a work visa. Any ideas on how to overcome this huge barrier?

Things she's considering:
- Going back for a BA in computer science (even though she already has a masters)
- Getting a nursing degree

Universities, very large research organizations, and a few nonprofits can bypass the H1-B visa cap -- basically they can get a visa for you much more cheaply and easily than anyone else. It seems like many of these places would need a mental health professional.

There are sometimes different options depending on what citizenship your friend holds now? And I assume they are looking in the US?
