Binghamton University enrolls over 1800 international students on non-immigrant visas; these students are neither U.S. citizens nor permanent residents. International students, who usually spend two years or more in the U.S., often demonstrate the initiative, flexibility, and experience to adapt to new situations. Their outstanding Binghamton University education and their multilingual abilities make them a special asset to U.S. employers. They stand to gain from the employment they receive from you, but in return, your organization benefits greatly from their unique skills and new approaches to challenges.
Given the complexity of federal laws governing the employment of non-US citizens, employers may be uncertain about hiring someone who is not a U.S. citizen, intending citizen or permanent resident. However, federal regulations do permit the employment, within certain limits, of international students in F-1 and J-1 status.
