    Vaishnavi,

    Another good job search site is indeed.com. It's more like a search engine that pulls jobs from all major job search websites. There are some cool features that allows you to look up company review by previous/current employees etc.

    Hope this helps! I don't know much about H4 so I will leave that for someone else to answer.

    Hi Vaishnavi,

    I would recommend going thro consultancies since this is your first position. You can ask your friends whoever working nearby to do referral for you in their consultancies. Instead of just submitting to some unknown companies this would be much better way. Networking is always good while searching for jobs.

    Once you join some company and get some experience , you can search for permanent positions directly.

    Good luck!

    :)
