Once the H-1B quota is exhausted, practitioners should consider non-traditional temporary work visas that give U.S. employers access to talent. This group of experts will discuss unskilled, highly skilled, and professional workers who meet the “seasonal,” “peak load,” and “one-time occurrence” needs of U.S. employers. The speakers also will compare the following types of noncitizens who could gain training through the J or H-3 training programs: entry-level, young, and not-so-young professionals.

Featured Topics

  • The New H-2B Regulations 66,000 Visas Later: What Works and What Doesn’t?
