How Your Company Can Retain and Attract International Talent with the BridgeUSA J1 Visa Program

Employers interested in transforming your business with international talent or training individuals to start overseas branches of your company will find an invaluable solution with the J-1 Visa.

Over the past year, the Biden-Harris Administration has taken several steps to affirm its commitment to attracting and retaining foreign talent in STEM fields. This year the Department of State issued a statement announcing “additional measures to further our support for increasing the flow of talent in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to benefit American communities.” These measures include additional opportunities for STEM-focused education and cultural exchange through the J-1 program, and an extension for undergraduate and graduate students in STEM fields on a J-1 visa, allowing additional academic training for up to 36 months.

Join us for an information session to learn how your company can use the J1 visa program to attract and Retain Foreign Talent in STEM Fields.
