Yes, if you are specialized and outside the U.S. if you are in the U.S. you must either be here legally or eligible for INA 245(i), by means of a prior petition before April 30, 2001.

It depends on a lot of factors, such as the job description, your education background and skill set. You need a lawyer to help you with the petition if you want to succeed.

Yes they may sponsor you, but you must be in status if you want to change your status while inside the U.S.
