Is there any issues with current J-1 Sponsors with switching to a more permanent work visa? Can they do anything to keep from switching Visa Status? Whats the best way to deal with that?
There are no issues just legal requirements employer and employee have to fullfill. They as in USCIS can deny or approve an application based on information provided. There is no way to deal with that - either you and your employer fullfill the required critera and the application has been properly filed or not.

As your Australian degree cannot be transferred (rule of thumb - anything with human contact needs US certifications) - what will you bringing to the table for a US sponsor in October?

as for certification, its already been taken care of. The thing I am worried about is that the company that is currently sponsoring the J-1 visa will be able to keep the visa switch from happening. I know that they don't require the 2 year return. I am going to look in the contract..if I can find it but does anyone know if they would legally be able to stop the switch. Thanks for responding so fast.
Keep looking for the contract or contact HR to get a copy.
