Thanks to Celina Labanca for this great video highlighting her experience as a Career Training USA architecture trainee.
Celina studied architecture in her home country of Argentina before deciding to train in the U.S. on a J-1 Visa sponsored by Career Training USA. "I have many friends that chose the same program before and told me about it. I chose this program because I think it was the most suitable one for me." Celina is currently completing her training program with an architectural firm in Alexandria, Virginia.
Career Training USA provides J-1 Visa sponsorship to international university students and young professionals who have arranged an internship or training program with a U.S.-based business.
Celina recognizes how valuable this international work program has been for finding her dream job. "I am planning on going to Europe to do a Master in Architecture and to find a job in an architectural firm. In my opinion, [this program] is helping me a lot. Once back in my country it will contribute to get a better job and have more work opportunities."
