The Skyline College International Student Program (ISP) hosted a virtual event on March 9, 2021, educating the college’s international students about their employment opportunities. This event provided information about the processes of the F-1 student employment authorization, how to get started if interested, and offered resources to best support students in this process. Students learned about specific requirements and guidelines required for obtaining the employment authorization. Renee Liang and Brittney Sneed, from the Career Readiness and Job Placement Hub, shared valuable information about their services which provide students with integral resources and support in job placement, and readiness to meet their career and employment goals. Additionally, Carlos Romero, International Student Counselor, discussed a virtual internship program that is available through the Summer Global Internship program.
This ISP March workshop is a series of three sessions. Look out for the next session on March 16, at 4pm (California time) focusing on tips on creating an American resume. The last session will be held on March 23, at 4pm (California time) focusing on a roundtable hearing from current ISP students’ experiences attaining employment.
