The time to get a job varies depending on the number of jobs you receive and apply for per month, your fit for the jobs, the quality of your applications, and your performance at job interviews. For example, for a USponsorMe member with an American resume and cover letter rewritten by an expert, who applies for 5 or more targeted jobs on USponsorMe weekly and is ready to master job interviews, he usually gets the ideal job offer with visa sponsorship within 4 months.
The time to get a visa varies depending on the visa. TN for Canadians usually takes 2 weeks, and 4 weeks for Mexicans. For H-1B at cap-exempt companies, O-1 if you have all documents ready, and E-3, it usually takes 6 weeks. For H-1B and H-1B1, it usually takes 8 to 10 months, and petitions should be submitted once a year, in March. For H-1B and if you are not graduated in the USA with a master’s degree, you may have a 70% chance of not being picked at the lottery and have to wait for next year to resubmit, and so on. We will give you more precise details on the timeframe regarding your profile when you complete it on our platform (for free).
The timeframe to get a job offer and the one to get your visa cannot overlap. So if you take 8 months to get a job offer and 6 weeks to obtain your visa, it will be 10 months. Another example is; if you take 8 months to get a job offer, the deadline to submit your petition is 3 months after you get your job offer, and it takes 10 months to obtain your visa, which will be 21 months.
Note: you’ll need the USponsorMe+ subscription during the time of your job search, and depending on the demand on your profile (how many targeted open jobs you can apply for per month), the length of your job search will vary. It will be more prolonged but less intense. We know that, and that’s why we offer a discounted price on the monthly subscription price if you pay quarterly or yearly. It can also be your choice not to have too much pressure with a more prolonged job search!
