Workshop Resource: The University of Michigan subscribes to an online resource called GOING GLOBAL. GOING GLOBAL includes a searchable online database of employers who have filed H-1B petitions. It will provide information about employers who have filed H-1B petitions for their employees in the past and might be willing to do so again.

To find the H-1B information, click on H1B Info then on H1B plus for the most flexible search options. GOING GLOBAL also has U.S./Canada city career guides and country-specific career guides which may be of interest to you. If you have any problems accessing or using this online resource, you can get help at Ask a Librarian.

This workshop is cosponsored by Ford School of Public Policy and the International Center.
