Immigration In a New Era: What Does it Mean for Employers and Navigating Employment of Foreign Nationals in the U.S.

Immigration law is an ever changing and evolving set of laws that is among the more complicated set of statutes and regulations in the United States.  That has become particularly so over the course of the last year or more in light of daily changes as to how our laws are interpreted and applied to employers and foreign nationals seeking employment in the United States.  It is imperative that employers are provided with adequate information, so they can properly navigate the immigration laws and feel comfortable considering prospective employees who are foreign nationals, whether they are international students looking for internships, recent graduates seeking employment in the United States, or those already employed with a work visa in the U.S.  Come join us to learn more about the various opportunities available to the highly educated immigrant workforce and how employers can benefit from making their team that much stronger through immigration sponsorship.
