Dear CSSA Members:


While the deteriorating US economy has already made it difficult for our

senior CSSA members in the job market, the increasingly restrictive INS

policies toward immigrants after 9.11, coupled with the decreased number of

H1B visas, make it even worse for our members without a green card to

compete in the job market. Obtaining permanent residence (green card) while

still in school becomes crucial at this moment.


To help our CSSA members to be familiar with updated USCIS policies, and

better prepared for their career, CSSA is hosting an immigration informative

seminar on May 23, 2004. The speaker, Mr. Steve Qi from Law Offices of

Steve Qi & Associates, will be there to address the immigration issues that

concern the CSSA members the most. One-on-one consultation after the seminar

will be arranged.


The topics include the following:


Nonimmigrant-related Issues:


1. How to maintain legal F1 status when your practical

training is expiring (OPT).


2. What you should know when changing your status from F1 to

H1B. Who are affected by the decreased number of H1B visas.


3. Can F1 student open a business and hire himself as an H-1B.


4. Can H4 Visa holder work in the US? Can H4 holder change to

other types of visas.


5. Can J1 change to H1B? Do you know J1 can work in the US

with O1 visa when you can no longer stay in the US in J1 status.


Immigrant-related Issues:


6. Are F1 students eligible for greencard application


7. What are the available approaches of getting green card

while you are still at school working toward your PhD degree or as a

post-doc researcher?
