The Popular H visa: What You Need to Know

March 9, 2012 § 2 Comments

On April 1, 2012, the U.S. Immigration Service will begin to accept new H-1B visa applications for those with specialized knowledge and advanced degrees. The actual start date for employment cannot be any earlier than October 1, 2012,  but we urge employers to start considering their hiring strategies now, because the coveted H-1B visas are limited in number (called the H-1B Cap).  Last year the H visas ran out in November. With current hiring trends and the economy looking better, we expect the H visas to be exhausted sooner than November this year.

Our 60 minute webinar (including 15 minutes of interactive Q & A)  will explain the nuts and bolts of H visas including basic eligibility to assist HR departments to evaluate candidates quickly, definition of common terms like OPT, STEM, cap-gap, portability and more, plus strategies for other visa options in the event H visas run out before you secure them for your potential employees. Our H visa webinar is currently pending HRCI credit.

Join us for the webinar on April 5, 2012 at 2 p.m., and be at the forefront of your hiring best practices to ensure you get the best and brightest talent for your business.  If you are interested in signing up, please email info@goffwilson.com and we will send you more details as we get closer to the date.
