(S)he obviously didn't need to ask them "How do you communicate?"

Default How You Maintained Your Visa Status Then?

During my 3 years of break, I worked in all kinds of hourly jobs, but one thing I did not give up was learning, especially programming skills, and try to take courses in a university. I was actually planning to go to PhD right before I get this job. So I don't know how often this happens, but the lesson here for me is to never give up.

Good luck!
Hi WickedE,

I'm a current international student as well. May I ask how you maintained your visa status between 2011 and 2013 before landing your job at the healthcare company?

Thank you!
