F1 to H2B

Asked 4 months ago - Los Angeles, CA

I am on F-1 OPT extension now and it is expiring on july. My company is willing to sponsor me but I miss the deadline to apply H1B this year. Can I still apply for H2B ( I have about 2 months left to stay) ? or do you have some other options for me ? I really want to continue working in US.

Thank you so much.

    Answered . Talk to an attorney before considering the H-2B ... it is a VERY DIFFICULT visa to get.
