J-1 Update: Waiver Approval

Cortney Ikpe

Once you sign an employment contract, you have three to six months to get your waiver approved. It is crucial for you to sign a contract with enough time to spare, and if you are looking to start a position this summer, you need to be signing a contract very soon.

Finding the right position for yourself can take a considerable amount of work. Don’t let it go to waste by not getting your contract proceedings done in time.
