CPTDog - Who Are We?

A Trusted Alley for International Students  

At CPTDog, we're a close-knit and diverse team of vibrant individuals. Our family includes mainland Chinese, Taiwanese, Hongkongers, Indians, Koreans, and local Americans. Remarkably, 90% of us were once international students in the U.S., with some still juggling work and studies. We deeply understand the unique challenges faced by international students because we've lived them ourselves. Every hurdle you encounter, we've likely faced it too.

Our co-founder, Tanya, is a testament to our journey and ethos. She became a permanent U.S. resident after arriving as an international student 12 years ago. Tanya's path wasn't easy – she struggled to find H1B sponsorship post-OPT, dealt with RFEs, and even faced job loss due to company restructuring. Yet, she persevered and carved out a successful life in the U.S.

Her discovery of Day 1 CPT programs was a game-changer, offering her an accredited U.S. degree and the chance to participate in paid internships, providing both financial support and a competitive edge in the job market.

Tanya's experience led to the birth of CPTDog, born from a desire to be the trusted ally for international students pursuing their American dream. At CPTDog, we're more than a consulting company; we're a friend and guide on your journey, equipped with personal experiences and a deep understanding of your aspirations.
