Can you get work permit on H4 visa?

You can. You will have to find an employer just like your spouse did for their H1B. And then, you will have to climb mountains to convince them to apply for your conversion from H4-H1B Realistically speaking though, it is very difficult if you are in non-IT related field. Reasons being: 1) Many employers don't know about this bizarre H4 Visa! 2) H4's don't get SSN - given current economic situation, a lot of employers ask for your SSN while filling in online applications 3) Quota Problem! H1b filing starts in April and even if you find an employer willing to do this conversion for you - you will not be able to start work until October. Ask yourself, would you offer someone a job and them wait 7 months for them to come on board? Unless, the person you are hiring has super unique skills and has come from another world! PS - not discouraging you..just giving you the "real" picture so you can plan ahead.
