Keith O'SullivanAfter only a few days in the United States, Keith O’Sullivan, a new participant on the J1 IWT program with the IIIC, was already getting a taste of American life by attending a Patriots game.

Keith arrived in early December, briefly staying with family in Boston before heading down to Austin, Texas, where he plans to look for work and spend his twelve months on the J-1 IWT program. Keith graduated from University College Cork last December with a Master of Business Studies in Food Marketing.

“I wanted to go somewhere different,” Keith said, “down to the warm weather.”

The J-1 IWT program is for current Irish students or recent graduates to come to the United States for up to twelve months to gain international experience in their field of study. With this experience, they can then arm themselves with increased knowledge and skills for future employment in Ireland.

Keith is currently looking for work in marketing. If you aware of any opportunities in this field, please contact Megan Carroll, IIIC Director of Intern Placements at 617-542-7654 x 23 or mcarroll@iicenter.org
