Alphabet Soup: A Visa Primer for HR Professionals
presented by Ayda Akalin


A, B, E, F, H, L and O...visas are like an alphabet soup. There is a visa for every purpose and a purpose for every visa. And as HR professionals, it's important to know how to assess when a potential hire will be in need of a visa and when to call in the experts. In this presentation, Attorney Ayda Akalin provides an overview of the U.S. immigration system including a discussion of the major temporary and permanent visa options for foreign nationals working in the United States. She will also review recent legal developments and trends as it relates to the current administration.
