Hiring International Faculty and Staff

  1. Wednesday, November 17th, 202110:00am - 11:30am

Hiring an international employee that requires visa sponsorship comes with a lot of questions.  Immigration regulations are complex and can change quickly without much notice.  If your department currently hosts an international faculty or staff member, or are considering doing so in the future, join International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) for an overview of the steps involved in this process.  Attending this session will allow you to: 

  • Understand the services ISSS offers departments through the hiring process
  • Know the responsibilities hosting departments have in hiring a foreign national
  • Learn the different visa options available to sponsor an international employee (This session will predominantly focus on the H-1B visa)
  • Discuss the challenges and expectations in working with federal agencies 
  • Review the latest regulatory changes impacting WFU visa sponsored employees and ISSS processes

You will be sent a link to join the online presentation closer to the event.
