visas to the US for Canadians
I'd like to land an S&T or research gig in NYC next summer and would appreciate insight on how the whole Visa process works, specifically for Canadians (assuming NAFTA makes it a bit easier). As I understand, I'd need an H-1B Visa and they're not too hard to get, but could someone please confirm this? Also, do I apply myself and, if so, how many weeks/months prior to the job?
Overall, is this a really burdensome process for banks or are visas usually not much of an issue as long as you're qualified? I'm kinda worried here..
Thank you; any help is appreciated
