    Large tech companies take on international grads all the time for software engineering grad jobs. I.e. Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon, Apple, Yahoo, etc.

    It is very difficult to get a graduate job in the US whilst based in the UK. If you want to migrate to the US your best chance is to go there on some other kind of visa (e.g a study visa) and then try to get a job after studying. Note that even if you go there to study, getting a job afterwards as a non-resident will still be difficult but it will be much easier than trying to get a job from here.

    A lot of people hear about the large number of software engineers getting H1B work visas in the states and assume those numbers are pushed up by the likes of Google, Microsoft e.t.c Google and Microsoft hire a relatively small number of non-resident workers, the major employers of alien H1B workers are outsourcing companies such as Wipro who bring in tens of thousands of software engineers every year from their indian operations on intra-company transfers. The situation is actually similar here in the UK too, the largest employers of foreign tech workers here in UK are outsourcing companies like Wipro.
