Astir is looking for E3 visa candidates

February 09, 2015

The Astir Family of Companies has made use of the H1B visa program since we started in 2001.  Using this program has allowed us to sponsor some of the best and brightest IT talent the market has to offer... which has fueled the award winning IT services and solutions we provide to clients.  The H1B visa program, in combination with other recruitment avenues has been instrumental in growing our business.

In addition to sponsoring H1B visas, Astir has also participated in the lesser known E3 visa program.  The E3 work visa is designed specifically for Australian nationals who wish to enter the U.S. to perform services in a "specialty occupation."  The E3 visa sponsorship program was established in 2005, and has offered Australian citizens wonderful employment opportunities they otherwise may not have been exposed to.

As per the USCIS, the formal definition of a "specialty occupation" is as follows:  "A theoretical and practical application of a body of specialized knowledge; and the attainment of a bachelor's or higher degree in the specific specialty (or its equivalent) as a minimum for entry into the occupation in the United States."  In determining whether an occupation qualifies as a "specialty occupation," follow the definition contained in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) 214 (i)(1) for H-1B nonimmigrants and applicable standards and criteria determined by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS.)  Please see the USCIS page for more information.

Astir has been sponsoring E3 candidates over the past few years, and wishes to expand upon the success we've had with our E3 visa sponsorship program.  We are seeking qualified individuals with a minimum of a Bachelors Degree in a specialized field and are looking for lucrative employment in the U.S.  We have extensive experience providing visa sponsorship for foreign nationals who are looking to begin or further a lucrative career as an IT consultant.  If you are interested, or would like to learn more, please contact us today.

We are also seeking qualified individuals on F1-OPT, CPT, or L2 status looking for H1B sponsorship.

Filling your IT staffing gaps

August 05, 2013

Hello,

 

Technology has become a driving factor for most, if not all, businesses.  There is a multitude of business technologies being used across all industries; which has brought us closer to our customers, employees, and prospects.  Technology has enabled business on a 24/7 basis, and with the newest waves of mobile devices, has enabled us to conduct business from anywhere.  This unprecedented access to our businesses has allowed us to grow by leaps and bounds, and has ensured that we operate as efficiently as we can.

This has also resulted in businesses becoming completely reliant on technology.  We need our technologies to operate smoothly and without interruption, because any hiccup can lead to productivity loss and hurt productivity.  I'll bet dollars to donuts that your business needs some form of technology to operate on a daily basis; whether it is a website, a network, an application or a device.  Therefore, you need the right staff to ensure your technology is running properly, so your business can run properly. 

Astir IT Solutions, Inc. is a leading IT staffing, outsourcing, and software development firm.  We specialize in working closely with our customers in understanding what their IT staffing needs are, and finding them the absolute best IT candidates.  We can help you identify your IT staffing gaps, and provide you with an expert IT professional that can help your business operate smoothly and grow.  

If you have the need for seasoned IT professionals, I would love to hear from you.  Give me a call at 908-279-8670 ext. 716 so we can discuss how Astir IT can supply your organization with the IT staff needed for success.
