Alumni Panel for OPT

Employment Tips by International Student Currently Working on OPT

Have you ever wondered how to effectively find a job in the highly competitive U.S. employment market?  Need a little help?

The Career Center in collaboration with the International Student and Scholar Office (ISSO) has started a new program to host a panel of international student alumni to help. We seek students currently in the Charlotte area to sit on a panel and discuss their experience obtaining a full-time job here in the U.S. after graduation. Panelists discuss their experiences applying for OPT, successful strategies for finding a full-time position in the U.S. and their work experience.



The first panel was held Fall Semster 2016 during International Education Week .We had such a strong student turnout and request for more that it will become a traditon to continue hosting this valuable program.
