ComingsNGoings: Participants Needed
Houston - Participants Needed for Focus Groups to Suggest Process Improvements to the H-1B Program - USCIS has initiated and funded a study to obtain external stakeholder perspectives on the H-1B adjudication process and to develop recommendations to improve the process. USCIS hopes to better understand the dynamics of high-skilled labor markets in the United States to anticipate future demand and make program adjustments within their authority. Mathematica Policy Research and Migration Policy Institute were selected by USCIS to conduct this study of the H-1B program. In Houston, one of the four focus locations, FosterQuan has been asked to assist in recruiting participants from employers and H-1B employees who have previously used the H-1B program. To conduct the study, MPI is looking for participants in two separate focus Groups: 1. An H-1B employer focus group and 2. An H-1B beneficiary (employee) focus group. Each focus group will last approximately 90 minutes. The focus groups will be scheduled in December 2013, at a time and place convenient to most participants in the Houston area. For additional information, please see: http://www.fosterquan.com/content/do...sc/topics.html. If you are interested in improving the H-1B program, please email H1Bstudy@fosterquan.com
