Comppanies in the US can employ foreign workers on H-1B visas only if they can demonstrate to the U.S. Department of Labor by filing a Labor Condition Application (LCA) that they cannot find U.S. workers with the necessary skills. DOL certified around 468,000 LCAs relating to new, existing, or transferred H-1B visas in 2019. In 2019, 188,123 three-year visas were issued or renewed, while the number of new H1-B visas remained capped at 65,000.

US IT Job Market Covid-19 Impact

This executive order stops the Department of State from issuing certain new work visas to enter the U.S., but it does not cancel or affect the status of foreign workers already in the United States. That means recipients of this year’s H-1B lottery already in the U.S. are in the clear: Their H-1B status will still take effect on Oct. 1 as they will not need to travel abroad to obtain a visa.

IT Hiring Kit IT Pros job prospects remain high 

Janco Associates analyized the effect of COVID-19 on hiring plans over the coming months. It expects recruitment for some key senior roles to be put on hold for now, because of the difficulty of meeting face to face, while in the short term hiring of contractors and consultants has soared. Janco sees demand for middle managers staying strong for the next three months or so before taking a dip, with demand for IT staff at all levels returning in 6 to 12 months.
