The concept of a Global Entrepreneur-in-Residence is one many in Kentucky probably don't know about. The first time many in the state may have heard of such a thing was last fall when Gatton College at the University of Kentucky announced the appointment of a native son to just such a role.
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.
One thing that nearly every business searches for is educated or skilled workers to fill positions in the company. Sometimes, finding a U.S. citizen who can do a particular job just isn't possible. In those cases, you might look outside the United States for qualified applicants.
Each fiscal year, the United States government grants 140,000 employment visas. If your education, skills and work experience fall into one of the five employment visa categories, you could obtain the right to reside here. Of course, you must meet all of the other qualifications required for entry into the country.
