I was informed about the J-1 Intern Program while in college but decided to wait another two years after college to participate. All of that changed once I received a phone call asking if I was interested in a position in New York. I said yes and the process began.
I was introduced to a very friendly, hardworking and dedicated staff member from Jobseekers International, without whom none of my progress would have been possible. I have to agree that I gave her a bit of trouble but she always gave it her best to see that everything was somewhat perfect in order to avoid any problems later on down the road.
Due to Jobseekers and my former lecturers at the T.A. Marryshow Community College I am able to move closer to my dream of becoming a certified Executive Chef and owning my own restaurant. The opportunity to learn is tremendous not just culinary, but mentally and life lessons. I have even picked up on some Spanish. “La mejor oportunidad y estoy agradecido”; “it’s a great opportunity and I am grateful” for it.
