Is it true my employer justs needs to provide a written letter outling their intention to employ me and then I can change my status so I am legally able to work in the US.
I recommend that you contact an immigration attorney asap to discuss your possible non-immigrant visa options such as an H-1B visa. See the attached link for a summary.

In order for your employer to keep you here, they will need to file a Form I-129 and attach supporting documents. I recommend hiring an experienced immigration attorney to assist you, in that these types of applications have extremely technical requirements. Let me know if I can help.
It is generally not true that all your need is a letter from the employer. This may be the case in certain applications for TN professional status (for Canadian citizens applying at the border), but you or your employer are still going to have to file an application to gain that status.
