    I hope that you are doing well. This is Azmal Hossan, a Bangladeshi international graduate (MA) student in Sociology (Major) and Public Administration (Minor) at Texas Tech University. I am working as Teaching Assistant in the Department of Sociology and also holding the position of Secretary of Alpha Kappa Delta International Sociology Honor Society, TTU Chapter. I am graduating in this Spring. I am looking for a job and highly interested for the position of Administrative Assistant in Islamic Scholarship Fund. Since I am a practicing Muslim, I think this position is perfectly fit for me. So I want to know one thing. Do you hire international applicant? Do you sponsor for H1B Visa? Please let me know. I appreciate your kind concern in this regard.
