It might be January, but today feels more like Christmas Eve to the information technology industry. As a bipartisan group of senators are set to present a bill that will increase the H-1B cap (and increase it again, depending on the demands of the market), IT recruiting firms, IT managers and IT contractors are waiting with baited breath. IT jobs are very often sought-out by immigrants in need of H-1B’s and IT recruiters Boston and IT recruiters CA will likely be affected with the rest of the technology market if the bill is passed.
In addition to a general strengthening of the industry, IT headhunters are likely to see a surge in foreign applicants’ resumes for technical jobs if the bill is passed. Previously, technical recruiters and IT consultants alike tended to count on the number of H-1B’s evaporating quickly. This bill may change the game for IT recruiters San Diego as IT jobs become more open to immigrants and as companies reap the more indirect benefits of the bill. Even if the bill does not pass, it marks considerable progress toward a bill like it passing one day in the future. Whatever the result, IT staffing firms are sure to remember this day for a long time.
