"On our first case, a younger gentleman was uncertain about whether or not he would be able to be processed through the company and even get the H-1B visa," says Harris. "That was a little bit nerve-wracking. With my understanding of the process and some of the anxieties that come with it, I was able to talk the employee through that process and get everything uploaded through the online system. The visa applicant actually graduated from the institution itself," says Harris. "Envoy going through the case with him, and getting us familiar with the resources available was an excellent help. The assistance that was provided was great for our employee, who was coming up for an expiration for his Optional Practical Training [the program offers work authorization to international students]. That process has allowed not only our employee to be helped, but for us as an institution to help our employee."

"One of the things that he relayed to me is how reassuring it is that we have this online immigration management system." Historically, the immigration process is shrouded in secrecy as, oftentimes, sponsored employees don't know what's happening with their case. With an online platform, each applicant can stay updated with the status of their application each step of the way. Harris found it to be a life-changing experience for her sponsored employees. "Just being understanding and reassuring when the process is started really does help with employee satisfaction itself," she says. Immigration Guidance for Others "I'm learning step-by-step about the different processes and requirements," Harris says. Her customer relationship manager, Tim, has served as her partner through the visa process, allowing her to gain a thorough understanding of everything involved. "He's actually calmed my own anxieties about making sure that I can serve my employees as best as possible." Each new experience is a learning opportunity, and Harris shares what helped her navigate the U.S. immigration process successfully: "Research as much as you can based off on what type of visa your employees are applying for. Research the requirements and the factors that cause someone to be denied for any type of visa, so when employees ask questions, you are able to say to them, 'This visa would be more suitable for you.' And then work with the attorneys and understand how they've done their work, so you become more familiar with the process on their end as well."
