Information session on self-sponsored green card application

This information session is targeted for Ph.D. students in Aerospace and other engineering disciplines. International students often struggle finding jobs, especially in the Aerospace Engineering field. This is occasionally due to the nature of work, but this is also because preparation of the authorization to work costs employers extra time and money. Some routes exist to apply for a green card (permeant residency) without an employer sponsor when you exhibit “exceptional abilities in the sciences, arts, or business,” or in other words, when you have Ph.D. in some engineering fields.

Having a self-sponsored green card can potentially open doors to more employment opportunities for international students. In this info session, an immigration lawyer, Mr. Paul Herzog, will give a brief comparative overview about self-sponsored green card application processes over web meeting. Then Dr. Huanyu Cheng and Dr. Namiko Yamamoto will provide their application processes and experiences.
