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 sources their data from the US Department of Labor's Foreign Labor Certification (FLC) Case Disclosure Files (choose the Disclosure Data tab). 

You may download the raw data in Excel (149 MB) to sort and filter as you wish via the file structure.  

To simplify your browsing, you may also download the above data pre-filtered by several popular data sorts, including salary and with some professional classifications not typically pursued by graduating business school students removed (pilots, physicians, pharmacists, etc).
