We're continuing #InternationalIrish with a day in the life of an Irish J-1 graduate visa holder.
Want to know what it's really like to pack up your possessions and move to the US as an Irish immigrant in 2019?
While emigration from Ireland to the US has dipped in recent years, there are still plenty of recent Irish graduates coming over on the year-long J-1 graduate visa hoping to make their mark on US cities on their 12-month visa.
Among them is Rebecca Keane, a writer and media grad living in NYC. She loves social media and hosting events and dreams of writing her own TV show. She's currently trying to find a job in the Big Apple but gets distracted imagining herself as Saoirse Ronan in Brooklyn. A lot.
And Rebecca is kindly letting us into a day in her life on the job hunt and getting accustomed to life in the states! Head over to our Twitter account today, Wednesday, July 10, @IrishCentral to learn more about the highs and lows of life in the City that Never Sleeps and be sure to share your own immigration story with Rebecca.
This July IrishCentral pays tribute to the International Irish who are breaking the mold, smashing glass ceilings, and emerging as the next generation of global thinkers and leaders. You can follow IrishCentral’s International Irish throughout by using the hashtag #InternationalIrish or by following us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn.
