International Student Launches Career Networking Site Mapis

Diana Vicezar of Paraguay is heading into her third year at Pitzer College in Claremont, California.

Early in the pandemic, Vicezar could not come to the United States. She spent her first year of college learning by video from the South American country.

During that time, Vicezar said she talked with over 100 international students studying in the U.S. She found out that many experienced difficulties while looking for internships or work. Besides visa restrictions, they said there was a lack of professional development resources at the schools.

Some did not know about the Optional Practical Training program or OPT. It is a U.S. government program that permits international students to stay in the U.S. for one more year after graduation and work in their field of study.

“I have met with many students who didn’t know about OPT or who didn’t know how to write an American-style resume, who didn’t know who to reach out to for help. And they have to go back to their countries because, you know, they didn’t have enough time to work on their applications or do their research because it was too late.”

That is when Vicezar started working on a

Jimmie Johnson earns career-best IndyCar finish after hard

NEWTON, Iowa – Jimmie Johnson has grown accustomed to having “given way” to his teammates but declined to yield Sunday en route to a career-best IndyCar finish – even with a championship at stake.

After battling with Marcus Ericsson tooth and nail for more than 50 laps around Iowa Speedway, Johnson finally nosed ahead of his Chip Ganassi Racing teammate – and the IndyCar points leader – for fifth place.

Though it was “a really special day” for the seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, Johnson said he was motivated to earn his first top five because he felt he should have passed another teammate earlier on the way to a breakthrough podium finish.

NEWGARDEN HOSPITALIZED: Two-time champion held for observation

“I’ve raced my teammates with the most respect that I possibly can,” Johnson told NBC Sports. “Every race I’ve been in, I’ve just given way, and that was really the first time I fought for position, and it was because I felt like I should have been up there passing (Scott Dixon, who finished fourth). I made a mistake and got up in the marbles, and I really felt a podium was in our reach, but today, I had

Drew Brees hints at next career move: Longtime Saints QB

Drew Brees will be headed to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in no time. But he might be headed to Hollywood before then. Months after acknowledging his uncertain future, the retired longtime Saints quarterback spoke with CBS Sports this week, exclusively revealing that he could soon return to the field … for the movies.

After a year as an NFL analyst for NBC Sports, the 43-year-old Brees is starring alongside his three boys in a new ad for Great Clips, promoting the salon’s back-to-school campaign. Asked recently if he’s more likely to take another NFL snap or fully pivot to an acting career, the 13-time Pro Bowler floated an alternative.

“Well I don’t think I’ll be taking a — well, how about this? How about I take a snap under center, but in a movie?” Brees said. “How about that? Then I can accomplish both.”

Asked if a movie is already in the works, the former Super Bowl champion didn’t deny the possibility.

“I don’t know,” he said with a smile. “I don’t know. Maybe so. We’ll see. It’s a teaser here.”

Brees’ comments come less than a year after Rams legend Kurt Warner took his NFL story

Why these workers left jobs like Google

Tech workers are walking away from high-paying jobs with great perks to help fight what they believe is the greatest existential problem of our lifetimes: climate change.

In some cases, that has meant taking a pay cut. But Sandy Anuras, who recently joined home solar provider Sunrun as its chief technology officer, says a big paycheck sometimes comes with a price.

“The tech giants have had these huge compensation packages. And it’s hard to say no to a huge compensation package,” Anuras told CNBC. “You just realize there’s a little bit more to life than maxing out your comp package. And I think people are realizing that now — and especially with some of the decisions that their companies have made to prioritize profits over democracy, for example.”

Before starting at Sunrun in March, Anuras worked at Expedia for almost three years. She believes traveling is good for society, as people who travel often experience an expanded perspective and greater compassion toward strangers. But helping people book travel efficiently did not give Anuras the internal satisfaction she had when she worked at

More:IU’s 2023 recruiting has been a slow burn. Don’t panic. That’s likely by design.

The 6-1, 204-pound Ellis helped Chippewa Valley High School in Michigan to a state championship in 2018 and got immediate playing time at IU in 2019 as a wide receiver and kick returner, catching 16 passes for 173 yards, rushing nine times for 53 yards and a touchdown and returning 28 kickoffs for 579 yards. As a sophomore, he moved to running back where he served as a third-down pass-catching option out of the backfield, rushing 16 times for 61 yards and catching 11 passes for 137 yards in 2020. However, he played just three games in 2021 before missing the rest of the season with an ankle injury. He did not heal
