Hello friends,

If you have been in this situation before. Please help with a good suggestion.

I am currently working for a company(consulting), They have applied my H1 and, It got picked.
At the same time I got a full time offer from a reputed company but, According to them they said they will not file my H1.
I am on opt and i still have valid 2 years of Opt on which i can work also TPS after that.
I don't know if i continue working with the consulting, as there is lot of pressure since you know how consulting works.
So should i start a fresh as entry level position or continue working with consulting ?

Please help me take the right decision.

Yes i did. But havent heard anything from my employer yet. Which is third party. Last time i contacted they said the lawyer who handled the h1b will send receipt and info to employer. So if picked should the applicant be informed by now or still more to come and wait ??

Yes,lawyer will receive H1B receipt if you were picked in H1B.The way this H1B lottery works is if you get your receipt early(normally within 1 month)then you are selected in H1B.USCIS must send rejection notice by the end of July(last year all notice was delivered on 17 th July)
I think you still have some time to find out,keep bugging your lawyer/employer for the update.
Good luck!!

The client offers full time but no H-1B. Don't take that job offer. There is no future there anyways and it is weird that don't offer immigration support. Who they expect to find? Like hire someone for 1-2year and let them go. They will realize soon anyways just turn down the offer stating your long term concern.

Just stick to the consultancy with H-1B and then move to a new firm since H-1B transfer is really easy. Note that getting picked in the lottery is a super big deal and it is pure luck these day. Also, getting a full time job at a nice firm that offers H-1B is not difficult, I mean there are literally thousands of companies that offer both :)

If they don't sponsor then deny their offer. Period. Your ultimate goal should be getting GC. if they can't even sponsor H1b then how could you expect them to sponsor your GC in future? Once you get GC there will be tons of employer with more money. My two cents is you should try to get GC as soon as possible. Immigration system has been changing very rapidly these days if you are following the news. First secure yourself
