What Employers Should Know about Hiring International Students!

Getting permission for international students to work in the U.S. is not as difficult as many employers may think. Most international students are in the U.S on non-immigrant student visas (F-1 and J-1) and these international students are eligible to accept employment under certain conditions. Presenter: Maureen Linvill, Assistant Director for International Student Services
Location: IPFW International Student Service Office, IPFW Walb Union 145 (across from the international ballroom)

Lunch will be provided by Salsa Grille from 11:00am – 1:30pm
