Many international graduate students and postdocs will secure full-time employment in the United States. What do you need to know about U.S. immigration policies to make a smooth transition? This workshop will discuss the H-1B petition process for full-time hires, options for permanent residence in the U.S., and the valuable resources available on campus, particularly ISSS, which can help support students considering OPT and CPT.
