Irish J1 students begin their summer adventure in New York City
Students slowly settling in for the summer
“Three of them are working in a restaurant in the city, one other girl is working as a personal assistant and another girl got work in a café.
“I haven’t got anything yet,” McNamee said “I’m still looking about.”
“I have been going in handing in CVs in person,” she said. “Sometimes in bars they take your CV and don’t even look at it.”
Working seasonal jobs in the hospitality industry may mean students are tempted to walk home late at night, but immigration experts are strongly advising against this.
Orla Kelleher, executive director of the Aisling Irish Community Center in Yonkers, told the Irish Voice that the safety of students is the center’s biggest concern.
“Many will see young Irish students ripe for the picking and easy targets, walking home late at night,” she says.
“I would be advising students not to take any risks.”
At the Aisling Center in Yonkers, employees have assisted over 300 students with accommodation and work over the past few weeks.
“Our Internet café is full all day from 11am onwards,” Kelleher said.
“Students don’t seem to be any better prepared than they would have been in previous years, that’s the down side.”
