The Career Center and ISPO are teaming up to answer your most pressing employment questions during this pandemic. What should you do if you're on OPT and can't find a job? How does remote work and changes in employment impact your immigration status? How can you best communicate these changes to employers and navigate your job search? Tune in on Wednesday, May 20th at 12 PM PST where we will answer these questions and more.  Seats are limited so REGISTER NOW...
