Lists of US Companies that Sponsored H1Bs last year

Many international students seek a list of companies who are willing to consider sponsoring visas.

Going Global compiles this data for easy browsing.  You can search and view H1B sponsoring companies by industry, company, location, and job title.  Be aware, the wage data is based on prevailing wage data.  

Going Global gets all their data from the US Department of Labor's Foreign Labor Certification (FLC) Case Disclosure Files. This includes all companies who have applied to sponsor a visa.  

To save you time, check out our lists of H1B sponsoring companies.

For ease of access, we have 4 different popular data sorts, updated Summer 2017:

  1. All H1B certified applications, with bachelors or higher degree required
  2. H1Bs in the common BBA salary range
  3. H1Bs in the common MBA salary range
  4.  H1Bs in the greater Atlanta metro area
