Location: Hiatt Career Center
If you are graduating this December or next May and want to look for a job/internship in the U.S., or if you want some preparation tips for finding an internship this summer, we invite you to join Ruth Brigham from the ISSO and Jane Pavese from the Hiatt Career Center for a joint workshop on OPT, CPT, and job searching tips. Ruth will provide information about OPT, CPT and the application process, and Jane will talk about job search strategies, online resources such as finding employers who have sponsored students in the past for H1B work visas, marketing yourself for the U.S. job market, and more! We hope you can join us!
