By 2014, there will be more than two million U.S. job openings in the science, technology, engineering, and math fields, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. But the number of Americans graduating with degrees in those disciplines is falling. Meanwhile, visa quotas make it increasingly difficult for U.S. companies to hire foreign-born graduates from American universities. The upshot -- as Microsoft chairman Bill Gates recently testified before Congress -- is that the extremely low annual cap on H-1B visas for foreign professionals is undermining the ability of U.S. companies to compete in a global marketplace.

As U.S. employers wrestle with finding enough skilled workers to fill their job openings, it's crucial for employers to understand immigration issues for H-1B visas as well as other workplace entry points, tactics, and techniques.
