This final report contains the Nationality Visa Score, which is the percentage of French people among the total foreigners hired and sponsored per company.

In my opinion, this report is the most realistic in defining which companies are the best sponsors for French people in America. This list will help you prioritize in your research.

For example, if a company has sponsored 38 French people among 18,000 foreigners, that's a very spall percentage of successful sponsorships. However, if a company has already sponsored 15 French people in the past among 50 foreigners, then there is a better chance for you to be sponsored, even if the company does sponsor less French citizens in the end!

We are currently working on the visa scoring data. It will contain other criteria, such as the last year that the company sponsored an employee, for what kind of visa, and for who (citizenship, position). This information will give you a unique visa score based on how well it matches your own visa profile. This score will help you decide which company/open position is the best for you. This option is coming soon!
