What’s the best strategy for an international student to get a green card?

Each person’s path toward obtaining a green card varies slightly. However, there are certainly ways that you set yourself up for the best opportunity for success. It is true that the easiest (yet can still be long and tedious) is to gain sponsorship from an employer. The process itself, such as the time table for approval, will be out of your hands, but there are things you can do to give yourself the best odds possible.

  • Focus on an employment area that has the best hiring rates
  • Fine-tune your skills as much as possible (certainly try to obtain higher than a bachelor’s degree if possible)
  • Prove to your employer that your skills are necessary at their business through excelling in the workplace and offering effective communication
  • Hire an experienced immigration attorney to assist you through the process
