Helping my little sister with an internship that'll hopefully lead to a job...
My sister is an IT major (focusing on Media and Animation, but she's into analytics) and an international student , who is quite smart with a >3.6 GPA and an Honors student. She's not a coder and she's not going to a top school, but a regular state school. She does very well on campus and in her academics.
I am trying to help her with another internship. The 1st which she did over the fall wouldn't let her work 40 hour weeks, is a small company and cannot/will not sponsor, so there's no future there for her. She has 1 year to graduation. I wanted to know what advice you might have for me, especially those who can really understand the impending issue with her potentially going back to a country where there's almost no opportunity especially for a female without connections. All advice however is welcome.
Also any help will be appreciated, if you're in recruiting or a hiring manager, please let me know if I can send you her resume for review and potential interviews. She's had interviews with GS and Disney, but as you know these are competitive places, so she has to continue trying.
