I am on H4 visa status right now and one professor is willing to hire me on exempt H1B visa for university. Is it possible to apply for that? Professor is not aware of status and because of my voluntary work, he is very excited. I do not have SSN. How can I make it working? WHat do I need from University to apply for cap exempt H1B?
