On this week’s episode of Diving Into Data, we take a look at some significant changes happening in two specific areas: employees and education. Specifically, the impact of the freeze of H-1B Visas for the rest of 2020 and the ways that the higher education world is changing.

For our first topic, TC dives into the recent freeze by the government of the H-1B Visa program. What does that freeze actually entail and why it matters, specifically to those of us in the data world. We also look at what the reaction has been from American Companies and Professional Organizations, while considering what the long-term impact of changes to the H-1B program could entail.
For our second topic, TC dives into the changing world of higher education. We touch on the potential K1 Visa issues that could arise for students this fall that attend universities that go 100% online, but also look at the way higher education could be overdue for some changes. Is it really worth paying that massive tuition bill to attend a large university, if you’re getting the same online experience and education that you could get at a community college? People have said for years that our higher education system needs to change and COVID might just accelerate the reality of those changes.
Sit back, relax, grab a drink, practice social distancing, and let’s dive into some data.
