They are both software guys, which definitely helped.  Various firms are more or less willing to deal with the visa hassle.  Unfortunately, there's no way to know until you try to get a job and the interview turns sour after your immigration status comes up.

Yes, I know what you mean.   Shocked  I actually had a job offer withdrawn because of a refusal to sponsor me Shocked.  One minute the firm wanted me to start the next day a couple of days later they said there never was an offer Huh

Hi I am a Canadian as well. and my question is does it matter if Ihave a TN-1 or a H1B visa in applying for the Patent Bar at USPTO?  Also, from you say, does that mean they would allow you to take the exam but not allow your name be listed if you are not a US citizen or greencard holder.  If this is the case, go back to the original question, useful to write the exam in the first place for people with status like me?
 
thx,
Samuel

My understanding is that your status as TN-1, HB-1 alone does not determine whether you can take the exam.   Also considered is whether the scope of your duties includes doing patent application work.   Your question suggests that you do not yet have any assigned duties to consider, making the question difficult if not impossible to answer.
 
I'd suggest discussing the matter with  the USPTO, and in particular with OED.
