Employment-Based Immigration Sessions for Departments
The International Center is pleased to offer two one-hour sessions during April 2021 focusing on temporary and permanent visa sponsorship for Tufts employees, researchers, and visiting scholars. Tufts hiring managers, department administrators, and other personnel with responsibilities for recruiting and hiring non-US citizen personnel and visitors are encouraged to attend. Each session will provide a broad overview of regulatory requirements, University policies, and current developments and events affecting hiring and sponsorship of international employees and visiting scholars.
Each session will last approximately one hour and provide opportunity for questions and answers. We encourage you to pre-submit questions to Andrew.Shiotani@tufts.edu.Each session is independent of the other; participants may register for one or both.
