  •  The HR approach IS the reason (4+ / 0-)

    why the country is being destroyed by the plague of H-1Bs.

    The HR approach, which emphasizes a slavish adherence to EVERY SINGLE CONDITION in the ad, eliminates MANY who have PERFECTLY good credentials. But HR eliminates the hundreds who do not satisfy every single condition.

    Years ago, the hiring person would look at the resumes, and pick the closest one. Now, none of those get through. Unless you satisfy EVERY requirement, you get dumped in the dumper.

    We need to modify Shakespeare. "First thing we do, we kill all the HR staff" is the line I would write.

      I was talking to a Brahman Canadian who's been here on a NAFTA visa, and he was complaining about the H1Bs using ringers to sail through the screening interviews.

      •  The stories about CV lies by H-1Bs (1+ / 0-)

        are pervasive. There is a huge cheating culture, and the ethos in the H-1B community is that these jobs are now Indian, and the Americans don't deserve them.

        It's beyond corrupt.

        Now the new policy shift opens up another 100,000 jobs to H-1B spouses. 100,000. That is more than the annual H-1B allowance.

        Just the other day, they arrested a Chinese guy for part of the Target data breach. There is a story every day about some H-1B who is going back to China or India with US trade secrets.
