Hiring International Talent
International students offer a wide range of skills and abilities, including multiple languages and cross-cultural skills, maturity, flexibility, proven ability to adapt to new situations, and knowledge of work practices in another country. International students generally hold F-1 (student) visas while studying in the United States.
