Visión México helps Mexican and other international students find a career in their home country.

Students of Mexican nationality are being guided through the job-hunt process with the help of a student organization, Visión México.
David Garcia, co-founder and president, said that the organization helps students who are losing networking opportunities in Mexico because they are studying in the United States.
One of the purposes of the organization is to implement an internal job pool with companies operating in Mexico by networking through conferences, meetings and training sessions, said Garcia, senior business major.
Fernanda Fiscal, another co-founder and vice-president of Visión México, said the organization has helped her prepare for the workforce.
“Nowadays, we shouldn’t limit our work options and skills to one country when we have the whole world full of opportunities to explore,” said Fiscal, junior economics major.
She said employers are looking for fresh new minds who are willing to work beyond borders.
“Most employers look at us because we are different. We believe that, no matter what, if we are given a chance to show our skills and experience, we’ll take advantage of the opportunity 100 percent,” Fiscal said. “All our visionary team members are one-of-a-kind.”
Sophomore pre-business major Oscar Casanova is a member of Visión México. He said this organization has helped shape him into the student he is today.
“The members of Visión México have always shown support for me and this has made me realize the importance of unity and teamwork,” Casanova said.
Although many students who are in the organization plan on going back and finding jobs in Mexico, there are others such as Casanova who plan on residing in the U.S. after earning their degree.
“Because of Visión México, I was able to learn things that I couldn’t learn elsewhere,” he said. “This organization has given me a lot in such a short period of time that is hard to describe in words how thankful I am. I’m thrilled to see the organization’s success in the near future by accomplishing the ultimate mission.”
