It means he or she isn't a US citizen and may only obtain a job here if the employer certifies that their job skills are not available by hiring a US citizen.

Go to an insurance firm.
People are still dying and becoming disabled.  The smart ones will insure themselves of that risk.
The firm would have a B/D for you to transfer your licenses to and keep them active.

Your biggest challenge will be the sponsorship.
Good luck!

If you already have the H1B, you'll just need to ask a potential new employer to assist you in transferring it over. However there are expenses involved that can get pretty ugly. You might want to ask your present employer if they will offer a favorable recommendation on your behalf. I don't know if it is permitted but you may be able to meet a new employer part or all of the way on the fees. Check with an immigration attorney to get a better idea.

The Indian economy is doing pretty well, maybe my b/d's service center is hiring S7s.
