If you’re the type of person who eats sleeps and breathes fashion, living in New York is the ultimate dream. That dream just so happens to be a reality for Grad Visa participant Erika Fox or her better known digital alias - Retro Flame. Erika moved
to New York in September 2014 having completed her Degree in Commerce (Marketing) in NUIG the previous year. She made her mark in the Big Apple working with the likes of Whitney Port, Olivia Palermo and the fashion department of The New York Times.
Since moving to the US she has received numerous requests asking how she found an apartment, a job, what life on the grad visa is like and everything else in between…
"If you love work and love travel and want one of the best experiences of your life, go for it! The USA is an amazing and diverse country to work in and not many get that opportunity. USIT has been an amazing help and support throughout the whole process and I would not hesitate to use them again if another opportunity arose."

Sound Design Internship, LA
"I always wanted to travel to the US. It's obviously not the easiest place to get legal status in for any long period of time - so this programme was a great opportunity I had to seize. If you are considering doing the programme, apply for positions before you get here and don't be put off by any rejections - you'll definitely find something that's right for you!"

Digital Marketing Internship, NYC
"My professional experiences in Boston, in creative marketing, arts and museum industries no doubt benefited my CV greatly as I returned to Europe. I am also adamant that my personal growth, in living in a new place, travelling by myself and becoming more independent made me more confident in myself and aware of my strengths and abilities."

Creative Marketing Internship, Boston
"I’m a filmmaker and cameraman, and after ﬁnishing a Masters in screenwriting I decided to take a big gamble and move to New York for a year – to upskill, make new contacts, and just plainly to live in somewhere as gigantic and fascinating as this city is."
