If you are on H4 Visa then life can be hard on you. I know the problems faced by H4 Visa holders. It's tough when you can't work without H4 EAD or H1B.
Sometimes, you may have all the derails, but need an external person to push in the right direction.

Thanks for making H4 Visa Career Guide. It is really a great guidance for the people who are on H4 looking job and work authorization in USA. I am currently living in San Diego, California. I have a daughter who is 3 years old. I came here in 2015. I worked with TCS, Bangalore for 8 years. I took a break from my career when I came here for my daughter. I went through the first module of your course and liked the way you explained the timelines and the various options. (Sagarika)
