How do I convert from B1/B2 to H1B visa?

Asked about 2 years ago - San Francisco, CA

I am currently in the US on B1/B2 visa. I got married in India recently and came to visit my husband who is presently on F1 visa. He will be converting to O1 visa soon.
I want to stay and work in the US. Can I convert from B1/B2 to H1B (once i find a sponsor) or should I first convert from B1/B2 to O3 and then apply for H1B?
