Workshop: Immigration and Employment Options
Research Park companies large and small often employ many international graduate students and postdocs who they may want to convert to full-time employment in the United States. What do companies need to know about U.S. immigration policies? This workshop will discuss the H-1B petition process for full-time hires, options for permanent residence in the U.S, and how pending immigration reform may benefit the tech community. Speaker Tom Arkell is an attorney from Bloomington, Ill., who specializes in immigration.
