Specifically addressed was the paperwork necessary for employment in the United States, a comprehensive look at permission to work, and an elaborate description of various work visas. Included was an exhaustive review of several visas including the H1B and O Visa and the proper transition from Optional Practical Training status etc. The presentation was followed by a Question & Answer session. Serving as moderator was Clara Solomon, Director, Counseling & Career Development, Office of Career Services, New York University School of Law as well as Ms. Kyoko Tirado, a distinguished panelist and NYU foreign student official.
