first get your OPT sorted so you can work legally for 12 months. during that time, have conversations with the agency about either H-1B or O-1 sponsorship, but you must show them you’re worth the $ and hassle. big network agencies are more likely to have the resources/be familiar with the process to be open to sponsorship.

like

Visas are harder to get now for sure. The O-1 is for extraordinary ability so you need some press and awards to get it. And there are caps on the H1-B and they max out quickly.

If you do qualify though there is an extra barrier to getting an agency to agree because of the legal costs. But if you can’t find an agency to sponsor you they might be willing to if you paid your own legal fees. For an O1 it can range between 5-7k with premium processing so it’s a big investment. Not sure about H1B but imagine it’s around the same.

That’s very helpful! Thank you!

Thank you! That’s definitely helpful. I’ve been hearing that visas are harder to get now and even some of the bigger agencies are not sponsoring creatives out of school, so I was wondering if maybe someone here knew of any agencies that have recently sponsored or are in the process.

Hello Everyone,

I have an internship offer from PwC FDD deals for summer 2022. I accepted the offer. But, for some important reasons, I want to move the summer internship to winter internship. If I ask them, is it something PwC will be willing to do? I really don't want to let go to this internship offer.

And, when would be a good time to reach out to them and tell them about it?

I am finishing up my industrial PhD (I developed a model for cell migration and vasculature formation - a mix between condensed matter physics, computation and deep learning) based in Barcelona (Spain), and I was thinking of applying for an internship as a Software Engineer/Student Researcher at Google/Microsoft/Apple/Nvidia.

The fact is I am worried about the topic of my studies as they focus on cell migration. Is there anything I could do to improve my chances of getting in?

I am currently doing my full-time internship at a startup where I am getting paid 17$/hr. I will most probably be continuing with them in Fall as a part-time and asked for an upgrade to 25$/hr. I asked for that upgrade because I already have around two years of experience outside of Canada as a social media executive in a multinational company. I am currently doing a masters degree at Concordia so I believe 25$/hr would be more appropriate. Am I aiming too high?
