The New Start Up Visa

The New Start Up Visa


The San Francisco Chronicle has recently released a report indicating that the Trump administration may soon rescind or delay the International Entrepreneur Rule. The I.E. rule, which is intended to increase entrepreneurship and innovation, and hopefully lead to job creation, is widely regarded as a type of company startup visa. The program will be overseen by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

The rule was initially put in place by the Obama Administration and is anxiously anticipated by the startup community. It was set to come into effect on July 17, however, it appears that Homeland Security is now intending to push back the date into 2018 as it finalizes plans to withdraw the rule permanently.

Explosive Growth in Tech Careers at Google


Google has announced that they plan to hire more than 6,000 new employees in 2011. This hiring boom comes at an excellent time as many tech companies are cutting back on their employee base. Working for Google is more than just a normal tech job, though. Google is well known for its unusual work spaces and great benefits for employees. Break rooms are equipped with foosball tables and many employees enjoy free services like laundry and on-site fitness centers. Google is determined to provide creative employees with all of the resources they need to think outside the box and produce unique products that will continue to change the tech world.
