Up For Discussion: Which Publishers sponsor H1 working visas?

visas-1_thumb.jpg A new feature bringing you highlights from the discussion boards. This week:
fixxion: “I am an international student and will have to get [a working vises] in order to get a job in one of them. Condé Nast, TimeInc, Hearst and NicheMedia are the ones that interest me”
Foreigner: “I first came to the U.S. on a J1 visa, which was a paid “internship.” I had to write an essay explaining how the visit would advance journalism in my home country and in the U.S. The idea was to offer cultural exchanges… I flew to the US for a vacation and hit the ground running, introducing myself to prospective employers, showing my clips.”
