The last few months at GoffWilson have been busy, from the H-1B visa filing frenzy to attending some of our favorite events, such as the Granite State Human Resource Conference, to hosting our own events, like the very popular I-9 and E-Verify Spring Check-Up: What You Need to Know 2016. Throughout it all, we have devoted time to increasing our social media presence to bring our clients and followers the most relevant, insightful, inspiring, and helpful stories from across the web that relate to immigration and immigrants. Of course, if your schedule is like ours, keeping up with every post can be challenging, so here are our five most popular stories from the last month.
