Good help is hard to find, goes the old saying. It's on the basis of that claim that many companies in Kentucky and across the U.S. look to fill certain positions with individuals from outside the country. As we noted in a post earlier this month, the need might be a temporary one, but that doesn't necessarily make things easier.
There is a long list of possible visas from which to choose. The challenge of identifying the appropriate permit presents a significant challenge in itself. Then, the company must explain why that foreign worker is better suited than a U.S. citizen for the post. An application, perhaps a string of them, must be filed with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in hopes that it will be approved.
