List of US companies sponsoring H1B Visa

Found this while monkeying around and looking at MSF and MMS a while ago, thought it would be helpful for fellow international students. Kudos to folks at McIntire who compiled this list.

I've also attached a different version of the list. Same title, but different list with some different companies.

I'm sure a lot of WSO's international users will find that helpful, thanks for sharing

I am an international student and this is very helpful because in case I do not get into investment banks, I need something else to do. Thanks OP!!

Nothing is true; everything is permitted.

My impression as I dig through their data is that myvisajobs' list is more about sponsoring employees at the higher level.

Nothing is true; everything is permitted.

i am a girl interested in trading and i am lost....list of trading firms that sponsor visas? (Originally Posted: 01/08/2015)

Hello Everyone
This is my first time posting (borrowed account) but I'd really appreciate your help.
To give a little background of myself, I am a junior at a target school with quantitative major. I am very interested in trading (not market making but taking positions) but I realized the majority of trading firms do not sponsor visas even the big ones. I am reaching out to people who've been in similar situation with me but so far I've only found few firms (Citadel, DE Shaw,..) and I am starting to get worried that I will have difficult time getting trading internship and subsequently full-time offer.. If anyone has any advice or knows other firms that sponsor visas, I would really appreciate your help!

Yes, being on a Visa definitely cuts down your list of opportunities. I would focus on the larger firms like the ones you mentioned. If you have quant (programming) skills that will definitely make your life easier as firms are much more willing to sponsor if you have that skill set. Eg. Firms like AQR, Point72 (SAC), 2 sigma.

Definitely include market making firms to expand your base- Optiver, Flow, CTC, SIG, Group One Trading. They have structured training programs for full time hires and also provide internships. Pretty sure most of them sponsor. Also re. OPT look at the below from http://internationalcenter.umich.edu/immig/fvisa/f_optextend.html#stem
