When I found out I would be attending school in the United States, I was excited for the opportunity that awaited. I wanted to plan everything and have the perfect experience, but I quickly found out I had no idea how to get reliable information about housing or life in the United States.
I thought I chose the right apartment, but as I arrived in the United States, I realized I’d been wrong. I was shocked to find my bedroom did not come with furniture. It was so small I felt like I was living in a closet. Worst was the long walk to the bus stop that I had to endure in the Florida summer heat.
I graduated from UF in 2009 and was one of few international students who got job offers within OPT window. I did intensive research on all 380 companies who attended UF Career Showcase and talked with all 6 employers who were open to international students; I reached out to all my friends for international student friendly job openings and I submitted hundreds of job applications online.
I recalled those experiences years later when a couple family friends approached me asking for guidance as their own children prepared to move to the US, and it struck me that many other international students could benefit from my knowledge and from services that can help them make the move.
US Ready strives to relieve students and professionals from all over the world of the pressures of transitioning to life in a new town. We aim to provide the highest quality tools and services to as many as possible, so that they can be ready to thrive in their new environment.
