In the same year that saw the lowest unemployment rate since 1969, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics said there were 7.3 million unfilled jobs. Companies across the country are facing the same talent shortage, and as a result, are seeking to hire foreign talent to fill open positions.

The competition for foreign talent is fierce—particularly in Silicon Valley—and many of these companies are reliant on foreign talent to help their growth.

In this 45-minute discussion, we’ll discuss Silicon Valley’s reliance on foreign talent and the role immigration plays in fast-growing companies.
