Only 250 Grad Visas Left As Recent Graduates Grab What Could Be Their Last Chance

Only 250 Grad Visas Left As Recent Graduates Grab What Could Be Their Last Chance

1 min read

It’s getting to that time of the year when the window of opportunity, left ajar for recent Irish graduates to spend a life-changing year in the US, is starting to close. By last August, the initial allocation of Graduate Visa’s to be issued in 2016 was filled up. That scramble last year is set to repeat itself in 2017 and perhaps surpass it, given the lack of confirmation of the 2018 programme.

For thousands of graduates, the early weeks of summer are about celebrating, enjoying the sweet release of exam stress and toasting to a job well done. While that’s been going on (and rightly it should), ambitious dreams have been making  Manhattan day dreams a reality – or at least making the first strides towards it.

There are now less than 250 Golden (Gate) Tickets without a name beside them.

If you’re thinking of following in the footsteps of Erika, Daragh, Eleanor, Tom, Danielle and David it’d be time to get your stakes on.

Getting that dream internship in the US is a challenge but knowing exactly what an American employer is after is more than half the battle. Thankfully we recently asked Ruby Media Group CEO how to wow a NY agency head. Don’t miss her top tips here.

If you’re not sure whether you’re eligible you can figure that one out quicker than you can say New York Giants, here. Got questions related to your field of study and that jobs market across the pond? Drop Melanie.Young@usit.ie or Lynda.Chalmers@usit.ie a mail for a free consultation.
