    Hi Scott,

    After going thru the blog, i’ve a couple of questions for you?

    How is the market for H1-B’s?

    What is the future of H1-B’s?


    • Right now, H1bs are suffering as much, perhaps more than everyone else. Our client demand (which was low to begin with) has evaporated, sans those with a top 5 school (IIT, Tsinghua, etc) and relevant experience to the particular clients.

      There will always be demand for H1bs for many firms however, just as there will always be demand for talented software engineers. However, the thought of a “rising tide lifting all boats” applies as much to H1bs, as underqualified or downright “B” candidates in the pantheon of desirable candidates for our client pool. Right now, the best/safest route for an H1b holder out of work/status – transfer to firm willing to hold you on the bench, until the market improves.

    Mr. Dunlop,

    I had sent you an email on 05/28/09 and have also applied for positions on The Bivium Group website. I was wondering if those positions are still available. You have provided you contact details. Would you mind if I called you to discussed further? I am a recent graduate from The Ohio State University (Go Bucks!!! 🙂 ) in Electrical and Computer Engineering.

    Mr. Dunlop,

    I would like to know what you think about the chances of our starting rotation making it to the ALCS with a less than stellar cast in offense and a mediocre pitching staff at best. Although people are thankful for what Theo has done, I can’t help but to hold him accountable for the millions of dollars in ‘dead money’.

    Oh, you thought this was about work? =)

    • I think we’ll make the playoffs, and from there an element of “luck” exists in any 5 game series. On paper, our top 3 starters are (like last year) weaker than our prospective opponents. For much of the year, the offense has underachieved. I think the real question is – on a continuum of full actualized abilities – will Beckett and Lester be at the top of their game? Will Matsuzaka pitch at all this year? We need 9/10 or 10/10 from Beckett and Lester to take any series… offensively, we can make it. On the subject of ‘dead money’ the ROI for many of these reclamation projects of Theo are high, if any panned out… the key I think is still stocking the farm system with cheaper prospects for future dealing.
