Understanding and Navigating the Immigration Process

Feel free to invite one of your HR professionals to join you for this highly relevant roundtable.

The U.S. immigration system is complex and can be confusing. The H1B visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows US companies to employ foreign workers in specialty occupations that require theoretical or technical expertise. Many applicants are international students trying to transition from F-1 student status to H1B work visas en route to a green card.

This roundtable will help attendees better understand the basics of the H1B visa process and other routes to permanent residence, as well as considerations including costs and time commitments. Attendees will discuss ways to make a company more attractive to someone, including how to help international students transition from a school setting to a work setting. 

 The presenter is Giselle Carson, a recognized U.S. business immigration and compliance attorney.

Roundtable discussion, moderated by Jeff Coleman, PE, FACI, will follow the presentation. 

Breakfast will be served along with insight and information from peers.  As always, participants will receive a certificate for one hour of continuing education credit.
