Hi, this question is for an Immigration Attorney, if someone is entering united states on a visit visa, is it possible for them to apply for a job and change the status from visit to H1? IF yes then what is the procedure to do so?
The procedure is very complicated and you have to be eligible for an H-1 Visa (or status). You will, of course, need a qualified employer which will be able to file the petition for you next April for you to start working October 2014. In your situation it's all unrealistic. Perhaps you should switch to an F-1 (student) status first to buy yourself time.
