  What is the source of Going Global’s H-1B visa information?[ top ]
Going Global’s H1B information is gathered directly from Department of Labor (DOL) records, which is the government agency responsible for all H1B submissions. Every quarter, DOL makes available a listing of all companies who have submitted H1B visa applications for the most recent 3 months for which records are available. The records contained in Going Global's H1B Plus database contains the most recent 12-month period of records available.

A job search agent is also available to send automatic alerts regarding new opportunities that enter the system that meet the job seekers requirements. The advanced and academic search tools provide additional ways to fast-track and better target jobs of interest.
  How do I use the “Advanced Search Tool” option?[ top ]
The advanced search tool provides a wide range of additional industry-specific keywords to add to your job or internship search query. On the Jobs/Internships search form, click on the "Advanced Search Tool" link:

1) Select an industry - Next to each industry name is the radio button that you can use to select the industry you wish to research. Click on a radio button for a single industry and then click on the "Select Industry" button in the lower right-hand corner. You are then presented with a list of pre-defined industry keywords.

2) Add industry keywords - You can add as many of the pre-defined keywords as you wish by clicking on the checkbox next to each term. You complete the keyword selection when you click on the "Add keywords and return to search" button.

3) Keywords are added to the search form - Your selected keywords are added directly to the search form and appear below the "Advanced Search Tool" link.

4) Include more keywords - If you wish to add additional keywords, type them directly into the Keywords field

5) Launch your search by clicking on the "Search" button. Your search results will be displayed on a new page.

  How do I use the “Academic Search Terms” tool?[ top ]

The Academic Search Terms tool enables you to add keywords to your search to include results with academic titles and internship-specific content. The predefined keyword list provides a wide range of additional academic keywords without additional typing and reduces the chance of misspellings.

Adding the Academic Search Terms requires only a few steps:

1) Click on the “Academic Search Terms” link from the main search window of the Jobs/ Internships page. The link is available on the Global Search and the USA Search forms.

2) In the Academic Search Terms window, select keywords to add to your search by clicking the check boxes. Then click on the “Add keywords and return to search” button.

3) The selected keywords are now included in your search query and displayed on the search form.

4) Include more keywords - If you wish to add additional keywords, type them directly into the Keywords field

5) Launch your search by clicking on the "Search" button. Your search results will be displayed on a new page.

  What is the best way to identify job/internship opportunities available to non-US citizens?[ top ]
The best way to identify job/internship opportunities available to non-US citizens is to add the following keywords and combinations to the search parameters: “non-US H- 1B sponsor” AND “H-1B sponsorship” AND “visa.” When adding this combination to other keyword terms (e.g., banking, engineer, marketing, etc.) the database will focus on opportunity announcements that specifically list non-US applicants. In many cases, employers may be open to considering non-US citizens for a position, although that is not stated in the job advertisement. In other cases, users will find that the search results include listings that clearly state that a company is *not* seeking to employ people who do not hold US employment authorization. Cross referencing the H-1B employer listings in the H1B Plus and/or the USA City Career Guide H1B dataset can also help to refine the search.
  How do I know when the application deadline is for a particular job? Do the jobs drop off the system once the deadline has passed? [ top ]
Application deadlines are generally noted within the specific job announcement. Active job openings are included by default in the search results. Results can be narrowed by using the time options (e.g., only list openings posted in the last 2-3 days or during the past week). Since all postings are downloaded from scratch on a daily basis from company websites, the listings will generally cease to be available once they have been filled or their deadlines have past.
  Does Going Global track the numbers of placements that customers are able to secure using the jobs/internships search tools? [ top ]
Because Going Global is a content provider and not a job service or placement firm, we do not track such data. It is also our belief that acquiring a job requires a great deal of personal initiative that is primarily dependent on the individual job seeker, and in no way reflects on the depth and quality of Going Global information.
  Where can I find the latest newsletter from Going Global? [ top ]
Go to http://www.goinglobal.com/newsletter/currentnews.htm. This link always points the latest edition of the newsletter. You can share the URL with others by posting it on a university’s career website, mentioning it in publications or including it in email messages.
