Employment Based Visa Presentation
- Attorney Aaron Blumberg
Are you an international student looking to secure a work visa and employment in the U.S.? Please join us at a presentation by immigration attorney, Aaron Blumberg, representing Fragomen Global, located in Coral Gables, Miami, Florida. Attorney Blumberg will provide useful information about the transition from a student visa to an employment-based visa. Many international students who have obtained a bachelor’s degree or higher qualify for various immigration benefits. Attorney Blumberg will discuss employment-based immigration advice and tips for employment visas and permanent residence "green card" options. He has extensive experience in working with international students who are seeking to remain in the United States and obtain employment in the United States following graduation.
