Office of International Student & Scholar Services Presentation

We are fortunate to have the employment experts from the U's Office of International Student and Scholar Services on campus making two presentations.

Mark Schneider, the Assistant Director for Employment-based Visas, will be bringing his team including H-1 Case Managers, Debbie Maatala and Ji-Yeung Jang and Permanent Residence Assistant, Krupa Shah.

Fri, 3/30
Library Rotunda

10 noon - - H-1B

The H-1B session will include a Powerpoint presentation with an overview of the purpose and nature of the H-1B visa, as well as alternative work visas (J-1. F-1 OPT, TN, O-1). We will then go into more specifics on H-1B parameters and requirements, including wage regulations, educational credentials, timelines and fees. We will point out employment terms that H-1B employers must abide by. Finally, we will lead participants through the ISSS H-1B website and how to navigate the new online INSZoom application software.
