Join Envoy and Global Immigration Associates for a closer look at the process of hiring and retaining international students on F-1 and STEM OPT status, including:

For many foreign nationals, the university system is their entry point to the U.S. workforce. In addition, companies benefit from hiring international students on the F-1 visa. The process of hiring F-1 visa students with OPT work authorization has a number of steps and requirements for employers, especially if the student is eligible for the OPT STEM extension.
