Dot Com Meltdown

by generalist In reply to How to get IT job in USA?

The Dot Com meltdown, plus a lot of layoffs from other industries created an excess of unemployed IT people in the United States. Until this excess is absorbed, getting a job in the US will be difficult.

Furthermore, due to the September 11th attacks, immigration is being watched carefully. The INS, having made some major mistakes in recent weeks, should be looking at everybody's applications very closely, even the H1Bs.

I can see things getting a lot tighter if there are more terroristattacks in the not too distant future. And if there are any H1Bs involved, that program could die, even if it is only a single person.
