Question How do I get a H1 visa?

Hi there,
My partner is currently in the US working on an L1 visa. I am an occupational therapist and would like to work in North Carolina aswell.
How do I go about finding a job and a company that will sponsor me?

Had anyone had any success getting a H1 visa as it seems very complicated and I would like any feedback on how to go about the process.

Thank you!!!!

If he's on a L-1, this allows partner/spouse & dependents to go too. How come you didn't go with him on the original application?

Get married, get an L2 visa, then apply for a EAD...look for work...

Much easier than looking for someone to sponsor an H1B....
