H1B Sponsorship in the USA

Who are the H1B sponsors in the USA? Where are the sponsored jobs, for what roles? This is what we explored in our H1B Sponsorship 2017 Business Profiles Report. Within our International Section, you can search and filter 52,089 H1B sponsorships for business profiles, filter by state, functional area, job title, and employer name.

This article focuses on the USA Overview.

Out of the top 12 employers that most sponsored H1B visas in 2017, eight are consulting and professional services companies (Ernst & Young, Deloitte, PWC, Syntel, KPMG, Tech Mahindra, Infosys, and Accenture).

Additionally, the average salary for almost 70% of the H1B applications were in the $50k - 100K per year. This includes the top three job titles: Business Analyst, Associate, and Project Manager with average salaries of $65K, $79K, and $89K respectively.

Out of the top 10 functional areas, four stand out with a salary range between $100K - $150K:
- Financial Managers with the highest average salary at $128K,
- Computer and Information Systems Managers at $122K,
- Marketing Managers at $120K, and
- General and Operations Managers at $103K.
Although we can observe that the highest salaries are from diverse functional areas, the ones with the highest number of application filed are more financially oriented: Management Analysts (9,681), Financial Analysts (7,598), and Accountants and Auditors (5,956).

Finally, concerning the top locations, most of the H1B Sponsored jobs were located in:
- California with 11,940 applications, followed by
- New York with 11,451 applications, and
- Texas with 3,489 applications.
These three states alone represent over half of the total H1B sponsorships across the USA! The next top 10 states in terms of H1B applications are:
- New Jersey (2,829)
- Illinois (2,575)
- Massachusetts (2,445)

About our H1B Sponsorship Report:
In our H1B Sponsorship 2017 Business Profiles Report, we have examined the US Department of Labor’s data to come up with an analysis that solely focuses on Business Profiles, excluding all the data that would not be relevant to MBAs and Masters.

Our report is divided in four sections: USA Overview, Popular States, Popular Functional Areas, and Selected Employers. For all the different sections, we analyzed the data and came up with the most relevant information a business student needs to know (top job titles, top locations, salary ranges, top employers etc.)

Hi Emma, In the last couple of slides with reports on the Selected employers, what does the heading signifies (ex: 1000 out of 4000+ for Amazon, or 300+ out of 4000+ for Google, etc)? Does it show how many H1Bs were actually approved out of the total applications put in?

This number shows the number of H1B applications for Business profiles vs. other profiles (engineering, science, legal, professor...). For example, for Amazon, 1,065 applications for Business profiles were filed out of a total of 4,017.
