Currently only year 2006 and 2007 data is available for search at these sites – H1-B & GreenCard.
If I am on H1-B and is looking for a job then here are numerous possibilities of using this search information from linked8 –
– Search by state and know all the employers who are sponsoring H1-Bs
– Search by employer and see the trending of their recruitments
– Get Job title information

– For Job seekers the links helps search for similar jobs in the area or Jobs available at employer
Similarly Greencard data helps if the employer is sponsoring GCs.
For recruiters this is gold as they can ping these employers and match H1-B candidates to the jobs. For employers this gives a good info of what salaries are being offered by the industry for the job positions.
