Walsh College will be hosting an informational F1 Panel Presentation on OPT and job possibilities after graduation. Participants in the panel include: attorney Tracy Schauff from Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy, PLLC, a leading immigration law firm in Troy; Walsh Adjunct Instructor and former F1 student Modou Ceesay; Career Services; Accounting & Tax Academic Advisor Deb Mourray; and International Student Advisor Liesl Scullen.

Topics will include OPT, H1B visas and Permanent Residency applications, how to meet an employer and provide a strong first impression, interview Do's and Don'ts, and a personal story about the journey of being an F1 international student to a full-time professional.

An F1 international student is defined as a non-U.S. citizen in an academic or language program pursuing a full course of study in the U.S.  The student has demonstrated financial resources for the entire academic program, and has a permanent residence abroad, which they plan to maintain.  

This will be held at the Troy Campus, Room 205.
