Why are American businesses looking outside the U.S. for employees?
Many U.S.-based companies recognize the benefits of hiring employees from overseas. These companies point out that the foreign-born candidates' ability to study and work in the U.S. demonstrates tremendous adaptability. The companies may also value that these potential employees know several languages and have knowledge of foreign business markets and cultures.
There are many reasons for companies to seek employees from other countries, but because of the current unemployment in the U.S., why are companies still seeking employees from overseas?
