PAY MORE MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wish I had mod points to vote you higher.
It seems like 80-120k is a decent salary range; however, it is not high enough to pull someone from another company who's got a decent job that they like. Part of CEOs' high pay is a "talent retention" bonus, since companies are worried that skilled CEOs will go somewhere else. In IT, on the other hand, very few companies pay "talent retention" bonus, because nobody is worried about IT workers leaving for another company. It all must be due to good market conditions for employers, which is directly opposite of their need for more qualified IT workers.
It will take more than a few months to get fluent in all of these.
It will still take less time that finding an H1B worker and getting his paperwork approved.
They've no fixed value like $100k, but must prove they're paying more than the average pay for that job.....
Right now companies just have to prove that they are capable of paying it. They don't have to prove that they intent to pay it. They don't have to prove later in the future that they are paying it. You don't have to be a highly paid lawyer to see ways around this requirement.
If one company claims there is a shortage of domestic workers, and offers $60k to hire a foreign worker; a 2nd company claims the same and offers $90k; and a third claims the same and offers $120k; which should get the slot?
Unless there is way to verify that those wages are actually being paid for duration of the H1-B employment after work visa has been granted, then there is no point in competing or asking them to pay a certain wage.
Right now there is also such a thing as prevailing wage for a particular job type, but companies have ways around it. They apply for H1-B and for Green Card using high salary/wage numbers, and later use some legal tricks to sidestep this requirement and pay less.
The Duracell Bunny campaign was launched in 1973 and predates the Energizer Bunny, which was created in 1989.
An H1B can't be paid less than the prevailing wage for a position of the same type.
I wish it was that way, but lawyers at my company were much smarter than I was, or maybe they had more balls. I was paid below the prevailing wage on the approved PERM application. Before it got approved and after - nothing changed.
International undergrad students tend to pay themselves. Grad students, especially in tech, tend to have grad school grants. Until recently they expected to go home first before reapplying for jobs. Or hope to find an employer that would pay the $30K or so for bypass paperwork. But recently a small number of visas are for immediate graduates. Tech companies want any such limit removed.
You have some incorrect information here.
International students indeed pay themselves. They always pay out-of-state rate and cannot qualify for state resident status no matter how many years they lived there. Some have grants or scholarships or TA/GA positions in grad school, just like any other grad student.
Some students come here on J-1 visas and they are required to go back home for certain time before coming back.
Most students come on a regular F-1 visa. They are not required to go back to be able to change their status.
Not entirely sure about J-1 students, but F-1 students are not allowed to work outside of campus. They are allowed to work on campus for 20 hours per week. Usually it is a minimum wage job.
All of the foreign students get about year and half of OPT (Optional Practical Training), which basically allows them to work to gain some experience.After OPT, J-1 students go home and F-1 students try to get a job and H1-B visa to continue working. H1-B is issued for 2-3 years and can be renewed up to maximum of 6 years. Before H1-B expires, students (now workers) try to apply for Green Card. It is a lengthy process - could be several years. None of the experience gained on the current job can be used to justify Green Card application.
I'm sure we can negotiate some bonus for you for skilled people. But so far we haven't refused people because they demanded too much.
There is another side of that coin. Whenever I get calls from recruiters (even though I removed my resume from public places years ago), I tell them I am not interested. I tell them that, because I am confident that they will not offer me what I need to consider switching jobs. I simply don't believe that after wasting a lot of my time on interviews, I would be given an acceptable offer. It is easier to stay out of the job market and say that I am not interested.
I am not desperate. I have a good job. I have good qualifications and skills. However, I will not bite an empty hook. Some vague description of the job and non-narrow pay range will not entice me to apply for that unknown job. I simply don't need it. If you need me, you'll have to do the work to make me want to work for you.
If IT salaries experienced the same kind of growth that CEO salaries experienced over last 20 years, then I would be on the job market even while being satisfied with my current job. Pay and perception of the average pay do matter.
If you don't like their microtransactions, don't spend money on them. It's that simple.
Sometimes I don't mind microtransactions, but they have power to ruin otherwise perfectly good game, and that's my major problem with them.
Barking dog is good. Don't need mean.
My friend's house was broken in twice. Their barking dog didn't help at all. First time she was thrown out of the window and was found wandering outside later, and the second time she was locked up in a closet.
