Pre-Decision Services

Pre-Decision Services

Before an international employee can make a decision about relocating to the U.S. there are many questions that need to be addressed in addition to the new employment offer. Often, these questions center on becoming more familiar with the area and it’s resources. For families, considerations such as transferring schools and credits, or special needs programs are high-priority concerns. Additionally, if both parents are working or if the employee is a single parent, choices for daycare and preschool opportunities may need to be explored very early on.
