*The Global Talent Retention Initiative of Michigan (GTRI) is an employer resource for companies interested in hiring qualified foreign nationals. GTRI is not a law firm and therefore cannot prepare or file immigration applications on the employer’s behalf. International students are often eligible for their own work authorization for which they must take responsibility. GTRI cannot file international student work authorization applications on their behalf.
A GTRI staff member will contact you soon to go over the benefits and expectations of being a GOemployer as well as answer any questions you have about hiring international students.
