Did you know that U.S. employers have the ability to host or sponsor an immigrant worker for a green card, also known as legal permanent resident status? Beyond that, there are temporary employment visas available to those immigrants who employers deem attractive for hiring at their company. There are also non-immigrant visas available.
Many companies in Southern California have a need for highly educated and skilled personnel. In many occasions, companies look overseas when the domestic supply of such individuals runs low. Obtaining a Green Card, which is a prelude to immigration to the United States, can take more time than either the company or the applicant can spend. Therefore, the government has created a separate, non-immigration type of visa to accommodate the temporary residence of a highly trained or key employee from another country.
