MBA Graduate looking for sponsorship (H1B, Green Card)


New Member
Hello everyone!
I graduated in December 2012 with a MBA from UMUC. I have work permit until March 2014 and have been applying for various Financial/Business Analyst positions. I have had some phone interviews but as soon as the recruiter found out I am not a citizen, he/she discontinued the interview. I have experience managing a franchise restaurant for the past five years and a stellar academic record. My resume shows I am not afraid to take a lead, I can multitask, drive results, etc. However, now I am wondering is the diploma enough? What are my chances of being hired as I completed my degree online and thus had not networked? What are my chances of being sponsored for H1B or a green card?
Appreciate your time!
