    If you're able to get a visa to work for us legally in America we would be happy to help you get here financially. We've actually done this a few times now and they've turned out to be some of our best employees.

    The work ethic of foreign employees on a visa is simply amazing from what we've seen.

    Re:

    Dear hostgator.com,

    I do not know either you are right person or not. My friend have submitted application on your website also emailed you his resume. He did not get any response from you. Does it means that he is not eligible for this job.

    Best Regards.

    An on-site job means that you need to be within traveling distance of the corporate headquarters.

    NO. On-site means on-site. Inside their office. So you have to live in the USA, hence it's re-locate.

    Hi,

    This is my 4th attempt i guess, I'm trying for a long time to work abroad but you guys are not ready to help me/us get visa. I'm ready to work any where if can help me to get work permit. Yes i read this thread fully and it is mentioned that "If you're able to get a visa to work for us legally in America we would be happy to help you get here financially." but we need some initial help from your side.

    Right now I'm working for a DC & server management company ezsm.net and ready to relocate any where around the world. The thing is the company who hires me should help me to get work permit.

    Dear hostgator.com,

    Yes, i agree as one of my relative who has been working in USA had told me that "US Government have put CAP on VISA and they are not accepting any more VISA for 2009"

    I do not know either this case will be only for Pakistan/India or its globally applied.

    Best Regards.
