When You Are Out Of Options: O-1 Visa Eligibility & Eb-1 Extraordinary Ability
With the ongoing and intensifying competition for talent, companies are constantly looking for ways to retain talent. Companies willing to sponsor potentially qualified candidates for O-1 and EB-1 extraordinary ability classification will not only attract talent but also help retain employees.
