“As the digital experience becomes more and more essential in our everyday lives, companies are searching for ways to continuously enrich the user experience,” writes Christopher R. Thorn, shareholder in Buchanan’s immigration practice, in TEQ magazine. He explains that some employers look to the global talent pool for recruiting creative technologists, including web developers, mobile app designers, 3-D printing experts, and anyone who combines the skills of creativity and technology.
In his article, Thorn provides advice, particularly to start-ups and small- and medium-sized companies, about the U.S. immigration system for these individuals. He explains the F-Visa for students, the H-1B visa for specialty occupations, and the O-1 visa for individuals with extraordinary abilities.
“The race to attract this talent has never been more competitive,” explains Thorn. “Knowing about the multitude of immigration options available in the recruitment toolkit can help employers be the first to cross the finish line.”
