“I remember last year I was kind of lost and desperate to find a good job. And then I heard about J1Visa-US and they arranged me interviews with several firms and in a few months I was starting in NYC, living my American Dream in the city that never sleeps!”
Carlota Prada, Intern in NYC.
The mission of J1Visa-US’s outreach is to change the culture of opportunities, advocating for talent and excellence, supporting our participants’ entrepreneurial spirit and boosting their international careers. Not only that, J1Visa-US is conceived as a win-win Program: participants get the opportunity to live a unique professional experience and to gain entry into one of the most competitive markets of the world, by covering their J1 visa expenses; on the other hand, US firms get access to international talent at zero cost by offering participants waged internships or trainings. J1Visa Program is a virtually free service to employers -they pay no program, visa or placement fees- while connecting and strengthening ties with young professionals eager to learn from American techniques and methodologies, who hail from Europe, South America, Asia, Canada and Australia. It frees the hosts from visa costs and paperwork and facilitates a speedy bureaucratic process (4-6 weeks).
“You can’t be a global practitioner without transfusion experiences between different cultures. Architect-US is great because it simplifies the process.”
Kenneth Drucker, Design Principal, HOK New York.
